Gawd dayum life getting in the way of blogging! I’m sure most of you have already figured out what’s happened and what not, and I don’t have much interesting to say, since I didn’t see the matches, but here’s a quick wrap up of the finals today.
Petkovic captured her first career WTA title in Bad Gastein, and was awarded the Holy Flower Vase trophy, one that looks like it’ll make a run in the top 10 trophy awards at the end of the year. I mean what more could you want? Your beautiful “first title” trophy can help you give birth to gorgeous flowers. Or other substances to be enjoyed in the Ginormous Pink Bong. Just sayin’.
We all know how much Dina loves finals (of all the one’s you had to win, it HAD to be against Caro, of course) and she didn’t disappoint, going mega headcasey on the tourney that she only should have won, but HAD to win. The draw was a walk in the park, and it didn’t hurt that a majority of the top 10 seeds were took out in early rounds. Well, Dina needed 3 sets, not to mention 75 in the third set, but hell, a win is a win. The trophy was one of those lame glass shapes with the tourney name painted on. Yeah, not fun OR practical. Slovenia fail.
WTF, Q-Man? Captain Querrey couldn’t get shit done today against Ginepri, who claimed his third career title. And hey, he’s still an American, so the tourney organizers have to be happy about that, even though there was about a 50% chance an American was gonna win. Too bad for the Q, he really has trouble getting deeper in slams and stepping up and claiming tourneys where he could really do well, especially with the two seeds about him (Boresunov and The Dude) going out in earlier rounds.
