Tokyo: Bambi, Wawrinka, Chiudinelli Through

Posted by gauloises1 on October 5, 2009

Yeah, I couldn’t think of a funny post title for this one. Anyway, not too much happened in Tokyo today. Gael Monfils dominated Turkey’s finest Marsel Ilhan 62 64, and qualifier Marco Chiudinelli upset Dudi Sela – who hasn’t been doing too well of late if memory serves. Not that that can’t be turned around, as Stanislas Wawrinka overcame whatever morning sickness has been bothering him in the past few months to beat John Isner 64 64.

Oh, and the GOAT doubles pairing of Pico and Steps lost. But it was 50% to Rosco Hutchins, so that’s kind of OK.

Elf plays tomorrow!

    I just heard on TV that pico´s former girlfriend the actress Luisiana Lopilato has became an international star since her video of one her boyfriend´s last hit was released. Her new boyfriend as many of you now is none other than Michael Buble. Not that Pico worries because he supposedly dates a cute Argentine model.
