Hell of a match, Austrian Smurf. He played aggressively and I've never seen Hand Lotion hit the ball so cleanly. I know people are saying Rafa was tired and whatever, but I give full credit to Melzer. He was really good today, and really, a seated golf clap to him in recognition for his great year. Also, he's apparently dating a swimmer. I guess he just really likes girls and water.
But I guess Rafa losing created what can only be described as an EMP, but instead of a pulse disrupting all electric functionality it disrupted brain functionality:
Look, everybody makes typos and gets the occasional obscure-ish fact wrong. But when you're Tennis.com and you base an entire Ticker story on the "ZOMG! RAFA LOST FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER" angle, people are probably going to notice your fact-check fail. They've pulled the story down but that doesn't mean I've stopped giggling.
Even Sod had a laugh. EVEN SOD.
