So I guess that didn't exactly work out the way you planned, huh?
Credit to Fognini for fighting off a few break points and coming out of the gate ready to play a "who can win two straight games?" ordeal and both players stepped up to the line with an immense amount of pressure. Of course, if you're the higher seed who's gracing magazine covers. playing at home in front of a home crowd, and who should have wrapped this match up over 24 hours ago, I'm going to go out on a limb and say your shoulders are a little heavier.
Gael was ridiculous. I honestly didn't know who I was rooting for in this match going into it. On one hand, Gumby needed to be taught a lesson. On the other hand, I kinda want Gael to play Fed. And on that same hand, Fabio is uber gross. Augh! [/katie]
And then, 3 points into the match, Gael was hunched over gasping for air. And that's when I was like "Fuck, you, Gumby. You're THREE POINTS IN." If you want to play your ridiculous "style" of retrieving/pusher type game then don't fucking start wheezing THREE POINTS IN. So weak.
And thus, I found myself in the really unenviable position of rooting for Eyebrows. Ugh. I gotta go take a shower.
