RG Day Four: Some Stuff

Posted by gauloises1 on May 27, 2010

Lovely Andrea Petkovic led by a set, 5-4 and 40-0 against Svetlana Kuznetsova.

She lost.

Robin dropped just two games to Taylor Dent and looks to be on awesome form (oh please, let that be true!)

Aravane literally doesn’t know the meaning of backing off, and it’s working for her as she survived a tough challenge from Angelique Kerber.

This guy’s playing. In case you didn’t know.

This girl’s playing. In case you care.

Marin is into the third round after playing a mere seven sets. Weird.

The more I have to listen to male journalists snigger and judge about Venus’ dress, the more I love it. Sod them all, she looks amazing.

Say hello to Julian Reister. Before this tournament, he’d played three ATP matches in his career and lost them all. Now he’s beaten Feliciano Lopez and Olivier Rochus and he’s in the third round of Roland Garros. And stuff like this is why I love Slams.

Jo meanwhile put in a beatdown on good buddy Josselin Ouanna …

… and Flavia did the same for Roberta Vinci.

    “The more I have to listen to male journalists snigger and judge about Venus’ dress, the more I love it. Sod them all, she looks amazing.”

    I could not agree more. The “outrage” is becoming incredibly patronizing and misogynistic- and you just don’t act that way towards the amazing Venus Williams.

      Agreed +2.

      I’ve read a lot of articles (OK, 2), one even from a feminist-ish website, that talked about how she is just buying into the whole business of “SEX SELLS” and is trying to market herself as a sexable laday because she doesn’t think her skills in themselves are enough to catch any attention.

      Well, I don’t think this situation is too hard to analyze. She’s just trying to have fun. And she’s winning. GO HER.

        SERIOUSLY. Ugh, and not that I agree that the rules should be different- because I don’t- but I mean, this is VENUS WILLiAMS. She has won 7 grand slams. Is CURRENTLY ranked #2 in the world. Is one of the most recognizable athletes in the world. She could be #1 in the world after this tournament. But her skills can’t catch any attention? It’s not like she does this every tournament. She looks good. She’s having fun. being girly. You don’t have to like it but you don’t have to be a fucktard about it either. The fact that when I type her name into google the first search option that shows up is “Venus Williams French Open Dress” makes me want to vomit.

        Sorry, I could rant about this for a while =)

    I had no idea Marin even played yesterday. Need to wake up earlier to watch matches!

    LOL. People are seriously still complaining about Venus’s dress? Good lord, what’s the big deal? She likes it, she can pull it off, so let her do her thing.

    But I guess Venus winning is old news, so let’s make a big deal out of the dress!
