That’s how that phrase goes, right? I’m sure.
Well, Round 1 has been wrapped up, and there really hasn’t been any real surprises. Federer beat lazy Paire, Tsonga beat Llodra on a surface that suits him, and Novak dominated and aging Mathieu. Yes, some people are upset about Hewitt losing, but he’s old and played the 8 seed so what do you want. Yes, Dimitrov should have done better considering how well he’s been playing all 3 weeks of this year. Really though, it’s been pretty quiet on the men’s side.
The women were much of the same. 7th seed Sara Errani went out 4-6, 4-6 to the Spanish Carla Suarez Navarro. Other than that, nothing shocking has really happened. Serena rolled her ankle, but managed to pull off a double bagel. Some people are watching 17-year-old Madison Keys. I predict like the usual youngins she’ll be out in a round or two. Blah blah.
Whatever. On to the good stuff…
My arch nemesis, Maria joined twitter, with creepy first tweet to boot!
Like I get the whole Sugarpova reference, but lets get real… No one calls you that. At least I hope not.
Now the only thing I care about… PLAYER PARTIES… a.k.a. Watching all the players try to get dressed up (and usual fail). The tan lines were out in full effect along with players who we should just be happy showed up.
I guess there were two this year. The both call themselves the Official Party.
Here is a little video from the IMG sponsored party. It’s still a mess whatever it is.
Minus the perfect Tipsarevic, everyone looked sloppy. Hantuchova was wearing shoes 3 sizes too small, Maria looked like her shirt wasn’t tucked in, and everyone’s hair looked like crap.
It’s truly upsetting. That’s why you are going to have to wait for the other set of photos/video from the 2nd party until tomorrow… or tonight if you’re lucky. Don’t worry, you aren’t missing much
