Yesterday, Ernests Gulbis gave Rafael Nadal a great match. We were rooting for Gulbis because
a) He's actually quite good at his overall game, at only 19!
b) We don't really like Nadal's tennis persona
c) Gulbis looks like John Francis Daly (Freaks and Geeks), all grown up and now playing tennis:
So cute!! :) And he made poor Nadal all frustrated. Or maybe Nadal was more frustrated about the fact that his Nike shorts were too small/tight so he had to constantly pick his wedgie before every serve and after each point. In the end, Nadal did win but we're definitely keeping our eye on Gulbis from now on!
Oh, and Sharapova got knocked out of the tourney, yet again! All be it though, against a tough player Kudryavtseva, who lovingly said, "It's very pleasant to beat Maria. Why? I don't like her outfit. She experiments, and I give her credit for that. She's brave enough to experiment."
You may have won Austrailia, Maria but what's going on? Are you too concerned about what you're going to wear to the next grand slam? But what if you don't get to wear it that often, since you can't get into the Quarter Finals? Come on!
