My Tennis Pool Team Thanks You, Fernando

Posted by gauloises1 on February 15, 2010

Another player having a good week in numbers? Fernando Verdasco, who beat Andy Roddick 36 64 64 to take the San Jose title. It’s his fourth career title and his first win over a top 10 player since his feats at the 2009 Australian Open. This is definitely the right kind of momentum.

Don’t take it so hard, Andy. At least you’re still sleeping with a Sports Illustrated model.

Both men now move on to Memphis. Interesting times.

    Oh Roddick, you’re not going to beat anyone in the Top 20 when you play that passively. *Sigh*. Who knew happy Nando could make me so cranky?

    Verdasco.. he has three glass balls… Roddick has two but they are small…

    Meh, Roddick has Brooklyn, but Nando has Feli, who is 92% prettier than Decker could dare dream to be.

      😆 Neil, I can’t believe I forgot about Feli.

      Although I’d say they’re about as pretty as each other, Brooks and Pelican Floozie. I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I don’t think F-Lo’s ageing at all well.

    Damn – Naughty beat me to it. I was just going to say:

    “Oh look. Nando’s got balls.”
