RG QFs; shit just got real

Dude. What a fucking day at RG.

HSM uber fave, and all round King of Awesome Nole lost to Jurgen Melzer in a tough and epic 5 setter. Nole had lead by two sets to love and a break. This was such a tough loss. But credit where it’s due, Melzer played the match of his fucking life. Well done to him. Hugs to our fellow Nole fans. Especially our resident Serbian BAMF Aleksa.

Melzer’s reward? A match with….

King of Clay Rafa, who took out his douchebag compatriot Nicolas Assmagro in straights. It was actually a tough match, Rafa made shitloads of unforced errors, but he came through in the end and that’s all that matters. Vamos!

In the ladies draw,

these two chicks will face off in the Semis. I love JJ so much, but TBH, a round of applause is required for the fucking amazing Slammin’ Sammy Stosur. She took out Haley Joel Henin and World #1 ReRe in consecutive matches. That is truly badass. My girl JJ beat Yaroslava Shvedova in straights. Ajde!

We will have a virgin slam winner lift the trophy. The WTA semis are tomorrow;

I’m gonna be about as fair and balanced as Faux News here and say I’d like to see JJ win this motherfucker. AJDE GLITTER TRAIN!

(I mean, I’d be happy for any of the others, who are all great, but I’m a JJ KAD)

Birthday Boys

Today, May 22, is a fucking awesome day. Two of my favorite people were born today, Nole and Morrissey. As many of my twitter peeps know, I am a diehard Morrissey fan- he’s my fave singer of all time. He’s unique, he’s legendary, and he’s one of the most influential musicians of the last 30 years. There aren’t words for how much I love him.

The thing is- although I knew their b-days if you’d asked me, it didn’t even cross my mind that these two SHARED a b-day until today. But it makes a lot of sense. They’re both extremely intelligent, they’re both fiery and emotional, and they both (contrary to what Bozo might think) have GREAT hair. So here’s to two inimitable, exceptional and extraordinary BAMFs. Never change, guys. No matter what the haters say.

And speaking of haters, it seems like every Tom, Dick, and Bozo are giving Nole next to no chance to make the semis, let alone win the tournament. Screw you people. Yeah, it’s true Nole hasn’t had the best results this year, but let’s give the guy some credit. He’s a Top 3 player and he’s always a contender in my opinion. So really, the critics can suck it. (It’s no secret I want Nole to win the whole thing).

I want to dedicate this song to Nole and to Aleksa. Love.

Nando downs Nole, Rafa blasts past Ferru

So, that was some performance by Fernando Verdasco Carmona!

This awesome HSM fave made his first ever Masters Series final by defeating

this awesome HSM fave. Poor Nole had a bad match, he just never really hit his stride. But that does not take away from the fact that Nando played some beautiful tennis, and really hit some amazing shots. So, Fernando Verdasco def. Novak Djokovic 6-2, 6-2. He’ll now face…

Rafa, who breezed passed fellow Armada hottie Ferru, 6-2, 6-3. Rafa was impressive, but not quite at the awesome level he reached in the QFs. Still, it’s so nice to see him back on the clay and kicking ass.

This was overall a good week for Ferru. He played some solid tennis, but just couldn’t deal with Rafa’s maaaad clay court skillz.

So. Rafa vs Nando tomorrow ladies and gentlemen. Buckle up, it’s gonna be some fucking ride.

Vamos chicos!

Mmmonte Carlo brings the epic matches

So, clay court tennis is made of shiny win. And today, one badass Frenchie and one badass Spaniard proved that point for us and our viewing pleasure

This dude*

 defeated this dude

in what was by far the match of the day. The tennis was incredible, with both men hitting their best level of tennis. So? JCF’s reward for winning this epic tennis battle? A match with….

Rafa. Nice reward, huh? /sarcasm Anyways, The King of Clay kicked some serious ass yet again today, coming through 0 and 1 again in under an hour. Va-fucking-mos!

Meanwhile…..

HSM fave Nando defeated fellow HSM fave Tomas Berdych to end a run of two straight losses against the Czech. Nando really needed the win, and will now face Montanes for a place in the semis. Vamos, Fer!  

Other notable stories; Nole sailing past Stanley the Manly, Nalby showing us that he’s back and he means business, Ferru taking out Old Man Ljubicic and the fact that 5 of the 8 quarter finalists are Spanish. Lovin’ your work, Armada!

Mmmmonte Carlo results and OOP

So, again, we’ve been a bit slack with posting. But we have lives outside of tennisKADism, and sometimes real life gets in the way. Again, you have our apologies.  M(mmm)onte Carlo is filled with hotties. Check out tomorrow’s OOP below, centre court is made of delicious win!

So, MAndy got his ass kicked today by PEHK. Dude got seriously owned. Poor old Muzz, he’s having a bad run of results, but the British media need to cut the bloke some slack. Bandwagoners.

Meanwhile, one Rafael Nadal Parera absolutely hammered De Bakker, one and love. Yummy. A breadstick and a bagel from Deli Nadal. Just what we like to see. Rafa only lost 12 points on De Bakker’s serve all match. VAMOS! Nalby also had a big win over Misha, and HSM fave Nole also sailed through to the 3rd Round.

King Of Awesome, Part 3

Sucks that Nole lost so early, but his practice was amazingly entertaining. After they did the actual hitting, they played some American football. Nole didn’t know how to throw it, but the crowd cheered him when he finally did it right. And how badass is Dusan Vemic? He’s the one in the glasses. I love the Serbs. This one’s for Aleksa. He’s going to have a great clay season, I just know it.

King Of Awesome, Part 2

After his practice Nole played some American football with his team. He couldn’t really throw the ball good at first; he said it was like throwing a ‘dead duck” lol. When he finally did spiral it, he got a big applause from the crowd. Did I mention he’s awesome?

Then they decided to play some kind of curling where everyone had to drop a tennis ball over the net and try to make it roll to the baseline. The guy with the worst roll had to do push-ups.

 

As you can see, Dusan was one of the losers. And Nole was a winner.

This practice was one of my fave parts of my trip and was worth the day’s price of admission alone. Which is why the hobbit Pippin Rochus is on my shitlist. He made me miss more Nole epicness. Not to mention he beat Richie too.

I could sit and watch Nole for hours, if it wasn’t too stalkerish to do so. He’s so great for the sport in every way. I hope he has an awesome clay season and I’ll be cheering for him the whole way. Ajde.

(Also you suck at life if you don’t like him.)
