Paris: Victory for Roger

Fed’s dorky comments on his BNP Paribas trophy:

“I don’t know where else, but there was some other place I could barely not lift the trophy. But this one I could. This is steel, so you can imagine how strong I am. (Laughter.)”

Paris is his 18th Masters title.  Fed’s close friend and personal cheerleader Gavin Rossdale was on hand to witness the victory.  In Gavin’s own words, the Fed is superhuman.

In his runner-up speech, Tsonga took the time to thank all his former coaches.  That’s a bit like the best man at a wedding thanking all his ex-girlfriends, no?  Then again, Tsonga has had an excellent season this year, coming back from the injuries that hindered him in 2010.  Next week, London awaits them both when the top 8 gather to fight for the year-end final.

I play favorites with Juan Martin Del Potro, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, David Ferrer, Feliciano Lopez, Gilles Simon and the long line of mercurial talent that drives me to despair in front of the screen at odd hours during the week.

    Tennis tournaments must have to work so hard to make their trophies unique. A pet rock is a good one. Maybe someone could try giving Chia Pets–the trophy that gets bigger!

    Earlier this evening I found myself staring at that photo, unable to come up with a good caption. Thank you. He looks exactly like a fiddler. Ashley MacIsaac in a polo shirt.

    Also, I would not want to fight with Mirka at 4am either. No way. 😉

      You know, the Chia Pets is an amazing idea! Part of me always wonder how the players get their trophies home, because none of them fit in the overhead compartment. With a Chia Pet, they don’t have to worry about that. They can watch it grow at home! Bonus: Fed could take all the dorky fiddler photos he wants with a Chia Pet too 🙂

      Your theory that Mirka is the real source of Federer’s power is rapidly gaining ground. Also, I wonder if she’s a talkative person, because Fed seems very chatty in interviews.
