Didn’t We Just Leave This Party?

Posted by gauloises1 on December 30, 2009

Has anyone else really had the chance to miss tennis? Anyway, the Capitala World Tennis Championship exhibition in Abu Dhabi is literally a number of hours away. With the injured Jo-Wilfried Tsonga replaced by Ferru, the six-player field will be facing off for $250,000 prize money and general first-blood-in-2010 honours.

Ferru faces Kolya at 3 p.m. local on New Year’s Eve, followed by Soderling vs. Wawrinka; the winners will face Nadal and Federer respectively in the semifinals.

And I believe the whole thing should be streamed. So suit up, people, it’s very nearly 2010 …

    I’m not ready, I’m just not ready. Weird, because most years I’m dying for tennis to start but this year it just feels too soon. Poor players, eh?

      Seriously, do Koyla and Ferru ever sleep?!?! Geez!!! I agree Lauren, I LOVE those guys, but the thought of watching the match makes me exhausted! I’ll just have to check here for the beautiful pictures =)

        I turned the tv on just long enough to see that Ferru was wearing a backwards baseball cap whilst doing his hunched ninja turtle walk. Briefly mused on how sad it is to be a young, good looking man spending New Year’s Eve working in an alcohol-scarce country. Then turned the tv off. Love ya, Ferru, but I’m just not ready for tennis yet.

    Well i for one missed the tennis, although i do feel bad for the guys having to play on NYE, but i do realise why there was such a deal made about the length of the ATP year, the boys like only just finished now there back into it already, poor bastards xP

    i am very glad though that your blog will soon be swinging back into full gear =D its just not tennis without your delightful insight!
