Spirited celebration is part of sport.
As for this? I have no words.
I think we’ve spotted the weakest link on the Spanish Davis Cup team. Since he’s made it so easy for me, I’ll bite and have a go. Ferdasco was one-half of a doubles team (with long-term partner-in-crime Feli) that lost in the worst performance Spain has ever given in the Davis Cup. Ferdasco was thusly assigned dead-rubber duty against Gasquet after Nadal had already clinched the win for Spain. Ferdasco won the match. I’ve never seen Fernando Verdasco look happier than he does here. Rumor has it this matador jacket is an Adidas creation. Given their recent monstrosities I wouldn’t put it past them.
Say what you will about the dysfunctional, self-sabotaging dynamics of Team Argentina, but they would never be caught dressed in anything so inherently laughable. Although at this point, they’d much rather win a Davis Cup…
