Tsonga fans using Barack Obama's campaign slogan to cheer him on against James Blake!

Whoa..... Given the fact that James think he is Barack Obama and the fact that he is the AMERICAN in this match, that has to be very annoying for him if he saw that sign. It was a biracial girl holding the sign and a white girl with her cheering for Tsonga. The sign read "allez Tsonga. YES YOU CAN!"

That is really like pouring salt in the wound for Blake.

He hasn't won yet but so far Blake is trying to outmuscle Tsonga and it is not working.... Two things I love to see... Someone outgunning Blake and someone outgrinding Nadal.

I'm watching the match and someone held up a sort of black-face picture, with a white head band. It was probably supportive, but made me a bit uncomfortable because there's really no need to racialise things by focusing on player ethnicities/race.

Tsonga ~ Rafa ~ Wawrinka ~ Gasquet ~ Monfils ~ Simon

The whole Yes we can, yes you can comes from that most wonderful, engimatic and articulate figure, Bob the Builder. Obama has stolen it from Bob imo.

The both of the players are as black as white. It doesn't matter.

Blake has turned up with a water pistol to a gunfight.

R.I.P Blake.

repped! associating someone with american politics only because he is mixed is

might as well call him the devil

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

If been trying to think for weeks where I knew that from and it's been annoying me. Thanks for putting me out of my misery.
Does that mean Hilary will be getting Thomas and friends to write her speeches??
