Thanks.

Is anybody willing to break up their doubles combo to team up with Tommy HAAS (GER)? If not then I will continue to suck with Gonzalez.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH FOR LOPEZ


The Rotterdam doubles event was rocked this week when controversy arose over the formation of new teams. After several disappointing weeks Feliciano Lopez dumped his doubles partner Rainer Schuettler in favor of "a more positive influence". When questioned about the split he responded, "I was always skeptical about partnering with him, but I went against my better judgements. It was basically a disaster from the beginning. I can be very tempermental and Scuettler just worsened the problems. I'm a very pretty man. Playing with some as plain, o I'll just say it, ugly as him was very distracting. It really hurt my confidence. I didn't want to touch or hug him. I lost points just to keep from celebrating. Also his name Rainer was an issue. I tend to be bipolar and just thinking his name in my head depressed me. With the combination of low confidence and depression there was really no other option."

Mr. Lopez is tentatively teamed with Tommy Haas. He had this to say about his new partner, "I'm very excited for the future. Tommy is one of the best looking men on tour, almost more beautiful than me. He has very good hair and his body is near flawless as well. We will look great together for the photographers. I feel that we will find winning ways very soon, but if not anything is better than what I've had to deal with in the past."

Ha! That may be the best article ever!

Sebastien wants Feli and Tommy to know that he can't wait to play doubles against them, if only for the chance to hug them (and possibly give them each a sympathetic pat on the behind after they lose) at the net after the match.

Hell, I'd pat them every time I see them, as a friendly pat ;)

9 players sent in point and the deadline's almost over. :help:

Thought this game is going to be BIG but turned out otherwise. :p. But hey, I'm loving the catty, bitchy and fabolous people who keep on sending their points. Thanks a bunch. :)
