Sam and his lovely off-hand were on display today in LA, where he needed three sets to beat fellow Yankee Ryan Sweeting, 63 67 63. Unfortunately his doucheclan was in tow for the affair. Whatever.
Meanwhile, Darth Fish saved 3 match points to beat Gooch. I don't even know why I'm writing about it. Like I care.
And in somewhat depressing news, Marat finally lost. He and Igor fell to the BryBros in fairly boring fashion.
Are they conjoined now? Are they even technically a doubles team? Hey ITF, instead of going after poor Tamira Pazcek, maybe you should be investigating these freaks of nature. Just a suggestion.
