AO Day Three: Your Day in Picspam

Posted by gauloises1 on January 20, 2010

Condensed bloggage tonight due to time (and timezone) constraints …

It took Marin untold hours and absurd amounts of effort to beat a small child with swine flu.

Not pictured: swine flu.

Aravane was dismissed by Angelique Kerber, thus making the Australian Open 1% more fashionable and at least 3.7% less awesome.

The eternal sad puppy that is Pavs was given a thorough kicking by Kuznetsova.

Gonzo won. In an angry fashion.

Ditto Dinara.

La Monf continued his winning ways.

Flavia was shown the door.

But by Wicky, so it was OK.

Florent Serra backed up his upset of Jurgen Melzer by beating Jarkko Nieminen.

Despite having no legs.

Has Marion been wearing the same kit for about three years, or what?

The Passion of the Nose Job.

I love this outfit. I don’t know why, because it’s disgusting. Anyway, she won.

Have an attractive photo of Rafa. No hate mail for me today!

Like looking into a mirror. And having your reflection repeatedly beat you.

    Ah, picspam. My favorite form of spam. (Also, I 😆 -ed at “The Passion of the Nosejob.”)

    And can I get a WHATWHAT for Horseface and Zeballos beating 12th seeded Melo/Soares in doubles — which proves that Horseface is still alive and kicking, despite all evidence to the contrary.

    WHATWHAT!
