Wimbledon Titlists: And the Rest

Posted by gauloises1 on July 6, 2010

Congratulations to the other champions from Wimbledon 2010. It’s been an amazing fortnight for all sorts of people.

Mixed Doubles: Paes/Black d. Moodie/Raymond, 64 76(5)

I watched them lose last year, so this pleases.

Ladies’ Doubles: Shvedova/King d. Vesnina/Zvonareva, 76(6) 62

Tough day for Vera, but these two are adorable.

And my favourite team of the year …

Gentlemen’s Doubles: Petzschner/Melzer d. Lindstedt/Tecau, 61 75 75

To quote Petzsch, “I’ve fcking won wimbledon!omg.”


And among the juniors …

Boys’ Singles: Marton Fucsovics d. Benjamin Mitchell, 64 64

Fucsovics? Yes please. Also delighted to see he’s carrying on the tradition of boys’ singles winners being cute as a little pie.

Girls’ Singles: Kristyna Pliskova d. Sachie Ishizu, 63 46 64

The Czech Republic = the new Serbia?

And a quartet of tiny Tims …

Boys’ Doubles: Tom Farquharson/Liam Broady d. Lewis Burton/George Morgan

I nominate all four to the GBR Davis Cup squad, effective immediately.

Put In a Word for Delpo’s Wrist, Won’t You?

Posted by gauloises1 on April 29, 2010

So, you’re in Rome. And you’ve already lost. As a result, you’ve got a bit of time on your hands. What do you do? What any red-blooded young man worth his salt would do. You go to see this guy.

Andreas Seppi, Jeremy Chardy and Leander Paes popped along to visit with God for a bit, not having anything more pressing to do.

They even took their girlfriends along. Because nothing’s more romantic than an audience with Benedict XVI.

USO Day Fourteen: It *MUST* Be Love

Posted by gauloises1 on September 14, 2009

Big congratulations to Lukas Dlouhy and Leander Paes, who beat Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles 36 63 62 in the final to capture the men’s doubles title. I must confess I was rooting for them, basically because I adore their celebrations, and they didn’t disappoint this time.



I’m not sure, but I *think* they’ve just had the time of their lives.

US Open Tennis

Is Knowles’ kid wearing a fireman helmet? Did he/she (can’t tell) steal it from Elf?!


And a good time was had by all.
