The Tennis Gods Must Be Crazy!!!

In Andy Murray, Li Na, Lleyton Hewitt, Maria Sharapova, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Sports Blog, Tennis, Wimbledon on June 13, 2010 at 12:21 pm

Who is the winner here??

It is either that the tennis gods have lost their minds or Karma is serving up some humble pies as this week the top players are losing to players they have dominated in the past. This just in: To follow up the overthrow of the royalty at Queen’s Court, Roger Federer lost in three sets 6-3 6-7 4-6 to Lleyton Hewitt at the Gerry Weber Open. This is Hewitt’s first title of the year and he finally picked up a win against Mr. Federer having lost the last 15 meetings. I did point out yesterday the fact  that Mr. Federer was looking very shaky and according to today’s match statistics, it was his poor service game that done him in. It seems only fair that Mr. Federer loses once in a while and to players who he has obliterated. With the exception of Nadal, coming into the match he lost, Mr. Federer had a winning/exceptional record against his opponents: He was 8-1 against Thomas Berdych, 2-0 against Ernest Gulbis, 12-1 against Nikolay Davydenko, 6-0 against Marcos Baghdatis, 12-0 up with Robin Soderling, 3-0 against Albert Montanes and 17-7 against Hewitt. Other than the Australian Open, Mr. Federer has not won a title even when he plays a depleted field, as he did in Estoril, Portugal and now Halle, Germany. Right now, he is 27-8 and we are in mid-June. Mr. Federer has  a lot of re-tooling of his game to do if he expects to win a 7th Wimbledon title and reclaim his number one ranking.

Oh he won...WOW! Hewitt a champion once again

Mr. Federer is starting to look awkward out on court these days

The Grinch who "stole" Queens Club tournament over Mardy "The Whale" Fish

Though with Sam Querry just winning Queen’s Club over Mardy Fish 7-6 7-5, in a draw where Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Andy Roddick, Marin Cilic and Gael Monfils all showed up to play, one wonders if perhaps we might not see a surprise Wimbledon winner as we did at the French. In most of the clay court tournaments leading up to the French on the women’s side, we saw a lot of surprise winners; Sanchez in Rome and Rezai in Madrid then we had Schiabone holding up the trophy in Paris over Stosur. WTF??…WTMFFF?? Is the men’s side ready to be shaken up? Who will hold up the trophy come the second Sunday at Wimbledon? Should we etch in Ivo Karlovic’s name instead of Andy Murray perhaps? WOW. What the hell is going on in tennis heaven? Though I would have to say that we should have figured something was up when Ivan Ljubicic hoisted the Indian Wells trophy over Andy Roddick this year. I’m going to be a rough year this 2010. There is going to be much drama down to the wire. Interestingly enough, right now as we speak, Novak Djokovic is out on the court playing in the doubles finals with partner Jonathan Erlich in London. So he still stands a chance at being the only top with a winner’s trophy in his hand at the end of the day.

Meanwhile in Birmingham, Maria Shriekapova lost to Li Na or Na Li in straight sets 7-5 6-1. Apparently, Maria was suffering from the serving yips again. She threw in 7 double faults and as we know about Na Li/Li Na as per her Aussie Open win over Venus Williams, if you are not serving well, she will make you pay.

Gosh darn it...I missed another one...

Li Na/Na Li: WTF I just won the tournament and they gave me a gravy bowl as a trophy. WTF? Is it because I am Chinese they think I could use it to serve up some duck sauce?? Who the fcuk running this shit cause I am about to karate chop some English @$$?
