Stockholm, Moscow: Give It Up For My Boys

Posted by gauloises1 on October 20, 2009

Still a bit way behind with this whole tennis thing and frankly am only blogging now because I’m too nervous about stuff I have going on tomorrow to sleep. But still! Tournaments are happening! Tennis is being played! Prostitutes are being solicited!

Fairly good day for my guys in Stockholm today. Two seeds are out already; Benjamin Becker at the hands of compatriot Simon Greul, and Albert Montanes at the hands of a certain Horseface. Well done indeed. The Pimback continues as Joachim Johansson beat Luczak, and Pico had a scare against Jan Hernych (who came fairly close to beating JMDP in Montreal, if memory serves) but survived, as the beautiful should.

And give it up for HenKon, the very lovely Henri Kontinen, who beat the seventh seed Marco Crugnola to qualify into the main draw. This boy is the future of ATP adorableness, I’m telling you. Unless he turns out to be one of the johns.

    There is no way that HenKon is one of the Johns, he is too busy having saunas with Jaarko and Timmo. Who needs hookers with that going on?
    ps. Hands off, I saw him first!

    “One of the johns” Wow that made me laugh so much. Please let it not be Juan. Please.

    Sleep well.
