Shanghai: Shao-Xuan Zeng In The House

Posted by gauloises1 on October 12, 2009

Not too much going on in Shanghai today. Final qualifying matches took place, and Nose Job, Llodra, Zombie Kubot, Fognini, Mayer (not the Horsefaced kind), Schuettler and Chiudinelli all made the cut. One or all of them will probably beat Elf at some point.  In main draw action, Chucho was sadly forced to retire against Beck, Kunitsyn beat the rapidly-plummeting Andreev, and local wildcard Shao-Xuan Zeng gave the home crowds a thrill by unseating Dudi Sela, 64 in the third.

And Feliciano Lopez sunk Armada tugboat Garcia-Lopez for his match win in what seems like forever. In fact, it’s only since Wimbledon. (Christ on a bike.)

Where he belongs: in soft porn.

    I’m very proud to say that I correctly picked the Shao-Xuan Zeng upset over Sela. And then, not so proud to say that this match was the only I picked correctly today…pfft for my prognostication skills.

    I picked it too! *high fives*

    It’s come to something when you have more faith in Shao-Xuan Zeng’s ability to win a match than you do in Lopez’s.

    That photo just proves that you can NEVER go wrong with some fake fog. Classy to the max.

    Seriously, what was Lopez doing in winning? These are the matches he ALWAYS loses — first rounders to players he should clearly beat. And I think Garcia Lopez already knocked him out this year in a Master’s event.

    I should have stuck with Kunitsyn. I changed at the last minute to Andreev. Who is sinking. Majorly.

  5. irefusetotellyou said

    Agreed, AmyLu, about Andreev — curse him for messing up my bracket! And it was going so well … (er, especially because like only 4 of them have played.)

    I am two for 4 so not bad ..
    I actually think Lopez is going to end up in really hard core porn.

    You guys, I still have 0 points. That’s right. An 0-4 start. I’m consistently TERRIBLE at these things, but this might be a new low!!

    anyone else thinks he looks a little bit like ralph finnes in that last picture??

  9. Mlle. Marseillaise (a.k.a Joan) said

    I don’t care what kind of films he’s in as long as I’m his leading lady.

    I’m sorry but that last picture is doing some serious things to me and making me want to do some seriously filthy things to him.
