Irarkli Labadze

He was so completely charming in his win over Blake. He endeared himself to the crowd (what was left of it anyway.)

He sort of looked like a big thug out there because he looks like his is about 30 instead of 22 with his big heavy body and his dark five o'clock shadow. But when he won he wanted to hug everyone and he loved the crowd and showed his appreciation for them my waving and tapping over his heart to show how happy he was. His smile was radiant. It made me happy that he won.

And the kid hits his ground strokes very very hard.

He's such an exciting player. BTW he looks quite young here.

Re: Irarkli Labadze

Is he nice? I haven't seen him play a match that he's won. Only when he's losing and screaming at birds and the wind. Maybe he's just eccentric
He shares a coach with Jurgen Melzer, which gives him some brownie points (for me)

Re: Irarkli Labadze

Re: Irarkli Labadze

Ladabdze actually has good potential if he would lose a lot of weight. I'm thinking he is about 225 and he needs to get down to about 180-190. He has good shots and he played Roddick well in the 1st round of the Australian Open before getting tired. In fact on one point, he was drawn out wide and andy roddick moved in for a volley, so he hits a weak lob and sits down on the ground instead of moving back to the middle, that how out-of-shape this guy is.

Re: Irarkli Labadze

Yea but he just beat Younes which is good, there is a pic of him serving during the match and he is still quite fat.

Re: Irarkli Labadze

Actually I think the dud spelling is something that Irakli would appreciate.

Nice pic Kristen.

Re: Irarkli Labadze

It was funny yesterday when he broke his racket and some guy approached him and asked him if he can hive his racket, Irakli laughed and said yeah but it was completely destroyed!!!!

Anyway i hope Irakli returns we have to support our fellow Orthodox brothers!
