Shanghai Masters 2011 – Midweek Irrelevant Asian Dramaz (By LJ)
I’m away interstate for work for the next 4 days so won’t be able to comment on the end of Shanghai masters till early next week but here are my thoughts on the irrelevant drama thus far….It’s a pity only about 5 people witnessed the following fuckery live in the stands.
Tomic d Fish (2nd Round) 6-4 1-6 4-6
Giraldo d Melzer (2nd Round) 6-3 3-6 6-7
Hmmm, Melzer continues to be crap after an excellent year last year
Nishikori d Tsonga (2nd Round) 6-7 6-4 6-4
Tsonga couldn’t care less I gather
Mayer d Rafa (3rd round) 6-7 3-6
IN STRAIGHTS???? WHUT??? Have I mentioned that I shared a flight down to Melbourne before the Aus Open this year with Florian Mayer? I was going to go up and say hi but I chickened out. But still…nice guy…shouldn’t be beating Rafa in straights. I didn’t watch the match, was Rafa shithouse?
Ebden d Simon (3rd Round) 2-6 6-2 6-7
Very good run by Ebden as a qualifier.
This tournament is this man’s to lose…
Yay for you Mandy….but hey still not a slam though *ahem*
Have you started caring about the Asian Swing yet? The Asians have clearly stopped caring.
