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.:o

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. :D

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. :shrug:

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.

No, last I heard it was The Tweenies, but there have been a few problems with the negotiations so Kermit and Miss Piggy are on standby. :lol::tape:
