Picspam: Turning and turning in the widening gyre/The falcon cannot hear the falconer.


With upsets all the rage in Dubai, one can’t help but wonder if Dubai’s carnivorous birds jinxed the tournament into sheer anarchy.

Day 2 of the tournament saw Muzzball, Davo and Jo-Wills all crash out at the hands of lower-ranked players. Djoko survived a scare, conceding the first set before he managed slow-cooked Troicki into defeat. Only Marin progressed in straights with a victory over Koubek.

Yer go Cilic Peppers.

Don’t cha geddit, Dubai organisers? No one really wants to put their hand into that thing.

Uhuh. The Fed decided to turn up to the players’ party for the second year in a row without actually playing the tournament.

Yeah douchebag, spread those lung-infectious germs! Spit into their drinks when they’re not looking!

While he was there, Roger received a gift from a local artist. Somehow, I don’t think he’ll be hangin’ that in his living room.

Nole was game enough for the falcon of course. Wouldn’t have expected any less from him. They are birds of a feather after all.

And as the draw opened up spectacularly overnight, perhaps it’s finally time for the Falcon to defend a title for the first time in his career.

Although knowing him, he’ll probably just cockblock himself into failure again.

    Note to self: Stay away from characturists!!!

    I do love that 4th picture though. You can totally read what Fed is thinking!🙂

    But if I was Fed, I may “accidentally” leave that gift in the hotel room😀

    Completely unrelated to the post but have anyone seen this article??:

    http://www.tennistalk.com/en/blog/Cheryl_Murray/20100217/Federer_is_the_Sportsman_of_the_Year_again_–_and_I_must_be_missing_something

    Ironic that the authors last name is Murray!

      LOL. I have seen it.

      Read through it. Decided it was logically flawed and written out of spite. Then decided to devote no more of my attention to it.

    The portrait is terrifying, funny to see Roger´s face.
    He´s polite, but thinking “it´s awful”.

  4. jfK says :

    Roger is nice to accept that caricature. I hope he goes home and smashes it with a racket.
    Go Marin, Go!

    I think the painting looks cool. And i say that with all honesty. If Roger doesn’t need it, then he can send it to me……….and that would definitely go on my wall.

    Oh and I also want a Falcon.😛

    I don’t think Fed was spitting in anyone’s drink as he apparantly never made it to his table🙂

    “Next up was a fleeting visit from Roger Federer, who is enjoying a break in Dubai after he was forced to pull out of the tournament for the second year running due to illness.

    Extra security was drafted in to help the world number one to his table, but it all proved too difficult and the tennis star left the party with an empty stomach.”
