Hey, so. I wrote a thing about Heather Watson for tennis.com and another thing about Alisa Kleybanova which should be up soon. But because I love you, here’s some more pictures courtesy (and copyright) of the fantastic Pedro Mendes of the goings-on in Estoril.
Jarmila Gajdosova sexing it up.
Pablo Cuevas. Likewise.
The very cute Tiago Fernandes, who will one day be a thing, mark my words.
Heather Watson, a.k.a. Our Hev, who had a really tough match today against Tamira Paszek and missed qualifying into the main draw. She was understandably gutted, but we won’t forget her.
Adrian Mannarino and Gaston Elias respectively, both of whom lost today.
Antonio Van Grichen, coach of Vika, Vera and Ivanovic, checking out the craic.
Jo and Marc Gicquel checking out the Chardy-Mannarino match.
Bendy Robin, who has been just a beast on the practice courts.
Dimple close-up during the practice match with Verdasco. Believe me, it wasn’t Verdasco’s tennis that was worrying him.
Verdasco wringing out his shirt. Love the expression on Robin’s face in the second photo.
Verdasco using the world as his washing line. He was not looking good in practice today, I’m told. Tennistically, that is.
Gilles and Yves Allergo playing doubles on Centralito. They lost to Pablo Andujar and Daniel Gimeno-Traver, but the most entertaining part of the match was waiting for Gilles to explode in frustration. Which he duly did, yelling “Ah, this fucking bitch of a line!” during the second set. Comedy gold.
