Washington Tidbits: Hair God Potential.

HOYA! Behold the Ninja-ness of Jo-Willy’s new ‘do

And try not to behold the less awesome scoreline of  4-6 7-6(2) 7-6(4). First to Karlovic at Wimbledon, and now to Isner in Washington, Tsonga’s not having a terribly good time with the big servers is he? 

It’s forgivable I suppose. You get stuck in a tiebreak with the likes of Isner and Karlovic, you face a good prospect of not coming out the other end alive. Next time, Jojo. 



In other matches, how great is it that the guys who did well at Wimbledon have carried over their momentum? Haas, Roddick, Hewitt, and Ferrero all progressed to the next round. Props in particular to JCF, who had a surprisingly easy win over 7th seed Tommy Robredo, 6-3 6-2. Like Hewitt, the Mosquito is defending nothing for the rest of the year, which means the only way to go .. is up.

And up we go!

    Was at the the tournament yesterday. When Tsonga won the first set, I thought he had it in the bag, although he looked really bored because besides some big serving, Isner wasn’t doing much (sent quite a few shots wide). When he doesn’t get to play, he’s hard pressed to stay engaged in match. Plus a very pro-John crowd, which I’ve noticed Tsonga doesn’t really like. Oh well, on to Montreal!

      Thanks for the recount Trish! It’s tough losing to Isner, I can’t imagine Jo-Willy would’ve gotten into any rhythm at all with all that big serving going on.
