Just like any other sport, tennis drags a crowd to the stadium, where two – or four; more commonly two – players battle through several rounds until there is a winner for the whole thing. This winner usually gets four things: a) a trophy; b) points for the ranking; c) glory and d) a paycheck.
Oh, and fans. But that’s an extra. My point is, the same way any sport attracts fans due to, well, the sport itself, we may never forget how gossip – and by that I mean off-court activities, like who’s dating who and what is this he is drinking/smoking?
So today we start the gossip stint of the Tennis Challenge – will last only for today and tomorrow, right. It’s not something big, riiiight, but I had to write a prologue. Right.
My favorite tennis couple, then, is Tomas Berdych and Lucie Safarova. Heard rumors they are no longer together, but can’t be true, right?
I really like these two. Berdych is the hard-hitting, big-serving, bit-mental, huge-potential-few-results, I’ve-already-told-Madrid-crowd-to-STFU guy I usually like. Plus, he’s just beaten Federer for the third time in their last four meetings. Pretty wicked, huh?
And Lucie, well, she’s a cute girl. Even her name is cute. And she is lefty. Uber cute.
