Foetus Fed has a giant-killing streak
I’ve yet to see the match, but I must admit, I didn’t see a 3 setter coming for Nadal vs Dimitrov, or Foetus Fed, as he is known to me since Gasquet has taken the title of Baby Fed. Dude’s definitely got a giant-killing streak in him, whether he’ll become a giant in his own right remains to be seen. For the next 2 or 3 years, Giants of the ATP, watch out for your lives.
Will try to track down the match, or at least highlights of it later. But it looks like Rafa’s had his hands full in his last two matches at Rotterdam. 75 36 62, time to tighten up Rafa. I’d rather you get the title instead of Scary Teeth.
Other results: Scary Teeth is also through after a rather close one with Seppi. By “close”, I mean he won in straight sets. Gilles ranked-too-high-for-his-own-good Simon is out after losing to SuperMario, but the other two Frenchmen – Monfils and lucky loser Gicquel are both through to the QF.
Over in San Jose, things have been rather boring compared to the minor thrills of Rotterdam, but they’re are about to heat up for Nishikori v Del Potro, and Gulbis v Roddick. As a non-fan of one-dimensional games, I’ll be rooting for Kei and Ernie.
Edit// The youngsters … are still youngsters. Both dispatched in straight sets. Ernie Ernie Ernie, when are you going to back up all the hype?
