Tennis' hottest new couple, Fernando Verdasco and Ana Ivanovic (nicknamed
“Anando” by some) are in Madrid this week and hopefully, the
Spaniard is getting some practice in, because it sure looks like he’s
going to have play singles and doubles against David Nalbandian, Juan Martin
Del Potro et al during the Davis Cup final in Argentina next week. A reader
posed the question: what AI is going to do with Verdasco the week before
Spain faces Serbia in Davis Cup next year? Maybe take him up to the Djokovoc’s
Pizza and Pancake (as Court Coverage calls it, "The official players
restaurant of the tournament formerly known as Amersfoort") and lay
the syrup on a little too heavy? Verdasco is known as a bit of a playboy,
but how about Jurgen Melzer, who once dated Anastasia Myskina and Nicole
Vaidisova is now dating Dominika Cibulkova, who dated Gael Monfils. The
two were recently photographed together smooching on vacation. Does the
couple nickname “Domi-elzer” work for anyone?
I totally forgot about the Spain/Serbia tie in March. Baby E and her camp better start working on their response to the "Who are you rooting for" questions now. That's a dicey one.
