If I might ask Rebecca, how did your friend develop this crush on Sjeng? I'm not trying to suggest that he is anything less than a hearthrob, naturally, but I wonder where the attraction lies.
I suppose that "because he's such a fine hunk of man meat", wouldn't be the appropriate answer?
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure where it came from. She developed it this summer in Toronto I believe. She must have seen him in the book, or walked by him playing doubles on her way to the bathroom or something, because when he came on for his next singles match she got unusually excited. She whipped out her camera, and started saying things like "gee Becca, I hope that he changes shirts this match! Does he usually do that?" Trust me, I was as baffled as you are.
This fascination continued at the US Open, where she must have shot off about half a dozen photos of Sjeng changing his shirt during his match against Mark. This was one of the rare occasions that we weren't rooting for the same guy.
For some reason or another, she seems to find him incredibley hot. I've stopped bugging her about it, and just go with it. There are far worse things in life, than being dragged to Schalken matches.
I might add that this is vast improvement upon her last tennis crush: Andy Roddick.
