Team Russia is looking mighty awesome right about now.
Team Russia: Marat Safin, Maria Sharapova, Vera Zvonareva
Team Asia: Paradorn Srichaphan, Zheng Jie, Ayumi Morita
Team America: Michael Chang, Venus Williams, Gisela Dulko
Team Europe: Stefan Edberg, Caroline Wozniacki, Victoria Azarenka
Please let there be Marat/Masha and Stefan/Vika mixed dubs. The former for the awesomeness, the latter for the complete and utter mindfuck.
So do you think the HK organizers changed the format to include the old fogies so that they could convince Marat to play? For a guy who keeps complaining about how much tennis sucks he sure does keep playing. I'm guessing it's because the weather in HK in January is 92% better than the weather in Mother Russia. Either that or the touching/cheezy Asian tributes really touched a nerve.
In other news... STEFAN!!!
