Everybody Was Kung-Fu Fighting …

Posted by gauloises1 on October 9, 2009

Robin Soderling and Yanina Wickmayer learned some kung-fu at a promotional event in Beijing this week, in a turn up for the books which simply cries out to be youtubed.

A teacher and some of his students from the Shaolin Temple, the most famous in China, put on a display before Soderling and Wickmayer arrived. They showed off different skills in kung fu, with some of them even breaking small metal rods over their heads. One of the students had blood streaming down his head on his face after breaking two pieces of metal over his forehead.

Should’ve used Youzhny …

Apparently, Soderling performed his moves with “a certain lack of grace”. I think he looks all right, don’t you?

    These photos are not nearly as amusing as I thought they’d be.

    I mean, where’s the sheer lack of HUMILIATION I come to expect from ATP/WTA photo-ops?

    This Sod pic is nowhere near as embarrassing as the Elmer Fudd-Meets-Gladiator getup he had on a few months ago.
