Wimbledon Day 7: Auf Wiedersehen, Brands Adonis

Posted by gauloises1 on June 29, 2010

Sadly, today saw the end of Wimbledon virgin and all-round bronzed sex god, Daniel Brands, at the hands of Tomas Berdych in four sets out on court 12. I didn’t see the match, and never got the chance to pay proper tribute to such a fine young mannschaft, so have some pictures.

This is the wonderful thing about tennis, however; even as it takes away with one hand, it gives with the other, because Tomas Berdych is in the Wimbledon quarterfinals. Yay.

Berdych takes on Federer next, who he’s never beaten in a Slam. So I’d like to wish him luck in my own special way by commending his excellent iteration of the ‘argh no’ maneouvre, first made moderately famous in my pants by a certain Juan Martin del Potro:

Well played.

    In your pants? That made me chuckle.
