Well that was an up and down match, but thoroughly enjoyable. It was a shame one of them had to lose.
The first set was all Kolya, as he was dictating play and Nole looked a bit rusty.
In the second set, Nole raised his level and Kolya dropped his.
And the last set was pure fun. Nole broke ahead with the early break before Kolya played a GREAT game to break back to 5-5. But from there Kolya would flinch and drop the next two games.
But it all doesn't matter. Because this happened:
I can't wait for the day when the guys realize that the truest, purest form of sportsmanship is exchanging shorts.
