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)

Aussie Aussie Aussie! Bye Bye Bye!

So, it’s Hopman Cup time again, and while last year’s event was pretty much made of win, this year, there is no Marat or Flavs there. Despite this, the field is pretty interesting.

Todays match up saw hosts Australia take on Romania, with Sorana Cirstea and her ‘coon eyes taking on Slammin Sammy Stosur as the opener. In what was a minor upset, Cirstea def. Stosur, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Next up, Lleyton Hewitt took on Victor Hanescu, and, after three sets of exhilarating tennis, the Aussie former World #1 came out on top, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6. Hewitt seemed to be playing better than we’ve seen from him in a long time. So, you know, look out, world (!).

So, it all came down to the Mixed Doubles with Sammy & Lleyton taking on Team HaneStea, which the Romanians won handily, 7-5, 6-1. Slammin Sammy again looked out of sorts, Hewitt impressed, and HaneStea were a well oiled machine.

To the victors go the spoils, so kudos Team Romania!
