Like a Fine, Fine Wine

Posted by gauloises1 on February 15, 2010

He just gets better with age. Juan Carlos Ferrero captured his thirteenth career title in Costa do Sauipe yesterday, defeating Lukas Kubot 61 60.

Hotter than ever.

Protocol dictates I give a shout-out to second-time ATP finalist, Poland’s Lukas/z/sz Kubot. He isn’t my favourite player, for no particular reason, but his progress up the rankings of late has been seriously impressive and almost unnoticed. He’s now up to no. 48. Check it out.

Now that’s over …

Don’t pretend this doesn’t turn you on.

Oh, and did I mention it was his 30th birthday?

Show that cake who’s Boss.

In only marginally-related news, I realised I’ve been spending (Christ on a bike) spelling ‘Costa do Sauipe’ wrong this whole week, and ‘Lukasz Kubot’ wrong for even longer. Sigh.

In conclusion: Victoria Azarenka really impressed me in toughing out a three-set win (including a bagel) over Vera Zvonareva; Jo lost his five-set virginity and didn’t seem to mind too much; Serena was on terrifying form; and Kolya goes into his showdown with Federer with his aura of invincibility more than a little battered.
