Like Top Gun, But With Tennis Players

Posted by gauloises1 on July 16, 2009

And less homoeroticism, sadly.

Grigor Dmitrov took part in a beach volleyball match in Sweden for … some reason, who the hell cares? Just look at how cute he is.

I don’t want to be unseemly in any way, but is he legal yet? A friend of mine wants to know.

Wednesday ATP Results: Stuttgart, Bastad

Posted by gauloises1 on July 16, 2009

I am so, so, so over the Marat Safin farewell tour. He lost to Nicholas Almagro 63 76(6) in Bastad today.

safin

After the match, Safin said “I’m tired of the tour, tired of staying at hotels and tired of travelling…I’ve had enough now”. Obviously feeling like he hadn’t underlined the point enough, he replied to a question about whether he would be interested in a coaching career by announcing “I’m tired of everything that has to do with racquets and balls.”

In typical Marat style, however, he has to mix up the irritating with being awesome. His post-match on-court interview was a delight, especially when he claimed to have given “the Swedish people” “a big gift” when he lost to Johansson in the finals of the Australian Open. Cue mildly confused clapping.

Soderling and Robredo both won but Frederico Gil fell to Gimeno-Traver. And Teimuraz Gabashvili put out Bjorn Phau. That’s right. He won another match.

In Stuttgart, the most interesting result was probably Paul-Henri Mathieu beating former champion Youzhny. Yeah, you know it’s a dull day when Mathieu is the biggest story. Oh, and in a continuation of today’s ‘Marat’ theme, lucky loser Sidorenko – last seen losing at Roland Garros to Marat – beat Oscar Hernandez in three sets. We may have another zombie there.

ATP Tuesday Results: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 14, 2009

Mixed fortunes for the Davis Cup survivors today, as Jose Acasuso and Andreas Beck (who both lost rubbers over the weekend) were dumped out of Stuttgart by Jeremy Chardy and Simon Greul respectively, and Tomas Berdych – who has a right to be exhausted if anyone does – lost in straight sets to Nicholas Kiefer, 63 63.

kiefer

On the other hand, Pico came back strongly in Bastad, beating eighth-seeded compatriot Maximo Gonzalez in three sets. Guillermo Canas took out Grigor “still learning” Dmitrov, qualifier Potito “serious business” Starace beat Julien Benneteau, and adorable Bjorn Phau beat the Roland Garros junior champion, Daniel Berta.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Unfortunate tongue placement aside.

ATP Monday Results: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 13, 2009

Vinciguerra_monday

A thrill for the home crowds in Bastad today, as homeboy Andreas Vinciguerra defeated sixth seed Florent Serra in three sets to advance to the second round. (Serra, according to naughty, being one of the sport’s master berators). Seventh seed Christophe Rochus also fell to unsung YFB fave Teimuraz Gabashvili in three sets including a breadstick and a bagel. Fear the Basher.

In Stuttgart, Nikolay Davydenko survived a tough day and shook off some rust to beat Ivan Navarro in three tight sets. And Kubot continued his quest for braaaaains. Expect to see him in the final, gnawing mindlessly through some luckless player’s skull in search of the yummy goo within.

Stuttgart

ATP Week Ahead: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 13, 2009

Bastad

robredo

Draw here.

It looks fun, I think. The top four seeds (Verdasco, Robredo, Melzer and Soderling) all have a bye through the first round, but there’s plenty of interest there; Almagro vs. Safin, Teimuraz Gabashvili vs. seventh seed Christophe Rochus (second round Teimuraz, COME ON), and an all-Argie clash between Pico and Maximo Gonzalez. Ordinarily I would say that Pico has a nice shot at the quarters at least, but given what he’s just been through … maybe not. The Serra-Melzer quarter also includes Grigor Dimitrov and Frederico Gil, both of whom have qualifiers in the first round, so that could be a nice potential run for one. Still, I’m betting on Soderling or defending champion Robredo to take this title.

Stuttgart

TENNIS-GERMANY/

Was it really only a year ago?! *has quality moment of nostalgic remembrance*

Ah, memories. Well, JMDP’s not coming back to defend his title (which I think is not a bad decision, although I welcome differing opinions from more knowledgeable people, i.e. anybody who reads this blog or even just wanders through to try to sell me Viagra). Still, the draw’s OK, and it’s here.

Gilles is the top seed and he has a tough quarter that includes Garcia-Lopez and either Jeremy Chardy or Chucho (a first-rounder to watch). The second quarter is where the DC bleeders really are, with Berdych facing Kiefer in the first and Kohlschreiber and Beck lurking. I honestly don’t see second seed Kolya having too many problems, and the third quarter is the token ‘WTF?’ quarter (sorry, Victor Hanescu fans, of which I happen to know there are some). I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a Kolya-Berdych final. I’m just saying.

Saturday Titlists: Many Names, One Surprise

Posted by gauloises1 on July 12, 2009

Unseeded and superfluously-surnamed Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez beat top seed Caroline Wozniacki 75 64 for the Catella Swedish Open title in Bastad today.

mjms2

Not what I would have expected, but a great result for Martinez Sanchez. It’s her second title of the year after Bogota, I believe. And yes, I could check, but that would take all the fun out of you correcting me, wouldn’t it?

caro

I didn’t see a whole lot of this match – like the SEXIST! I am, I was concentrating on Davis Cup – but from what I did see, Martinez Sanchez was simply better; more aggressive, going for her shots and executing well, and drop-shotting Caro to death. For Caro’s part, she seemed to be misfiring wildly on the backhand return of serve, which cost her a lot. In fact, it cost her a shiny pink disco trophy.

mjms

And Gisela and Flavia had a good day too, upsetting the top seeds to take the doubles trophy.

gisela flavia

Have I said I love Flavia’s dress? I love Flavia’s dress.

Monday Results: Bstaad, Budapest, Newport

Posted by gauloises1 on July 7, 2009

It. Never. Stops. Seriously.

But as you know, here at YFB we feel *all* tennis is important. (What idiot came up with that philosophy?!). Sorry for the lack of a preview. I barely know my own name at this point.

wozniacki berta

In Bstaad, all eyes are on Caroline Wozniacki. Who didn’t play today. But I’ll tell you who did! Sorana Cirstea, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Carla Suarez Navarro, and Gisela Dulko are all through to the second round. Actually, that’s not a bad field. Not by half.

dulko

And any tournament which features Gisela and Flavia playing doubles is pretty much fine with me.

In Budapest, Alona Bondarenko beat Karolina Sprem. Doesn’t *everybody* beat Karolina Sprem these days? And in Newport, bewilderingly popular Taylor Dent, Daniel Brands and Samuel Groth all progressed, along with some other people.

Yes, I’m hanging on to my grasp of current tennis events by my fingernails. Thanks for noticing. Full results below.
