Re: nBarcelona QF: Which Fernando will win-Gonzalez or Verdasco?
A BB meeting in Santiago, 2022:
"Hello, my name is Fernando Gonzalez, and I am a ballbasher. I've been one just about all my life, since my pre-teen days when those softballers in my local club drove me to distraction and spurred on my impatient, hard-hitting style. After years on the men's tour and untold levels of elbow abuse, my right arm is-as you can see-permanently bent at a 90-degree angle. This has led to many misunderstandings, the worst of which caused the break-up of my marriage. My wife separated from me when she claimed that I beat her up in her sleep. But as you see, I can't bend my arm, and I'm a restless sleeper so I often unwittingly assaulted her with my inflexible elbow during fitful nights of slumber. Fans who come up from behind me asking for autographs are also a problem. Many is the fan I've accidentally knocked out when I swing round a little too quickly to meet their adoring pleas. Yeah, there have been lawsuits..."
BB meeting in Madrid, 2025:
"Ola, my name's Fernando Verdasco, and I'm a ballbasher..."
