Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread
My crushing defeat to Hewitt =Legend actually reminds me of Del Potro's loss to Hewitt in Wimbledon 2009.
-Delpo making his first huge Slam run in the previous big event, coming within a whisker of beating a GOAT candidate who had never won RG, but eventually the latter's experience and fitness prevailed.
-Me taking part in my first MTF contest, blasting through the draw until facing a candidate to GOAT MTF clown with no ACC title yet in Start da Game, getting off to a tremendous start but eventually losing by a hair.
Young upstart losing to legend en route to missing resumé piece. - check
-Del Potro getting a dose of reality, getting crushed by Hewitt in the next Slam, three routine sets.
-Mark Lenders getting routed by Hewitt =Legend in Popcon. 39-14.
Back to reality. - check
I hope the symmetry continues with me winning the next big event, and then breaking my wrist and beginning to type with only one hand.
