Bangkok: Were the Annoying Couple in ‘The Beach’ French?

Posted by gauloises1 on October 2, 2009

Just wondering if it’s something about French people and Thailand. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Gilles Simon are both in the semis but needed three sets to make it. I didn’t see Gilles’ match, but Jo was definitely looking a bit end-of-season-y against Chiudinelli. Unsurprising, really; when was the last time he managed to play a full season like this? Still, they both won and they looked hot.

Jo will be facing Viktor Troicki, who upset eighth seed John Isner in a result that made me go ‘oh’, and Gilles will apparently have to beat at least six Jurgen Melzers.

Basically my worst nightmare.

    I feel like Gilles has been in a funk since the first round o fDavis Cup, so I would love to see him win this tourney. I’d also love to cuddle him if he should lose.

    “…a result that made me go oh” LOL!

    That Melzer picture is totally trippy and gives me a headache.

    Oh, wait, normal Melzer does that anyway. 🙂

    P.S: Is “The Beach” that movie with Leonardo Mayer DiCaprio?
