Uh...thanks. First of all, I can't take liquids on the plane. Second, why are you giving me shit that I have at home? Third, a hockey sweater? Are Avril Lavigne and Celine Dion going to serenade me next?
Congrats to Milos (can someone please explain to be everyone's insistence on giving this kid a cocked up stupid nickname? Milos works pretty fucking well) on his first ATP title, taking out an, from what I hear, in-form Pink FeVer in straight sets. Weirdly, these two will play each other in the first round of Memphis today.
Two snaps and around the world, girlfriend!
The match ended on a bit of sour note with an idiot fan yelling out while Milos was serving on match point, the yell distracted Fernando, and he got understandably pissed before walking to the net to shake hands. I would absolutely love to buy a beer for the two ladies who gave the fuckball an earful.
Super good stuff from Milos. I obviously didn't see him play in San Jose, but the kid was crazy impressive in Melbourne. I really do think he's the real deal and there's no reason he won't be top 30 by the end of the year. That said, can everyone please just get off his jock? The Raonic Bandwagon is way out of control right now. I feel this way a bit about Petra, too. One month does not a "Next Big Thing" make. Let's see what happens when, especially with Milos, you play a full schedule and guy start to figure out your game. That's where the rubber meets the road and the cream rises to the top.
This isn't to rain on Milos or Petra's parade. They absolutely deserve the privilege of expectation. But let's not get carried away.
