Two Bears Fighting Over a Pineapple

Posted by gauloises1 on January 2, 2010

Come to Romania, ladies and gentlemen, where wild animals will steal your fruit and they have some quite good tennis players. Sixth-seeded Team Romania upset the Australians in both senses of the word in the first session of the Hopman Cup to take an early lead in Group A.

Sam Stosur looked to be well in charge of her match against Sorana Cirstea, outplaying the Romanian to take the first set 63, but Cirstea’s tenacity paid off in the second set and Stosur eventually wobbled just enough to give up the match. Lleyton Hewitt evened things up by coming from behind to beat Victor Hanescu 36 63 76(2), but the visitors took the mixed 75 61 and the tie with it.

 And they’re so cute. Get in.

Spain-U.S.A tonight.

    Does anyone know if Hopman Cup will be airing in the US at all? I thought the Tennis Channel used to show Hopman Cup, but maybe I just remember watching it after the event happened, since they love to show exhibitions on a delay (*cough* Abu Dhabi *cough*). I really wish I could have watched — and I hope both Stosur and Cirstea can build off their impressive 2009s in 2010!
