The state of men's tennis
Can somebody please explain to me what is going in men's tennis?
First we had Dominic Hrbaty and his quaint shirt with the bra-shaped peekaboo holes at the back. Hey, look at me! I'm just a normal guy, I don't have breasts growing out of my shoulderblades! It caused such a stir that even the Vietnamese press had something to say about it.
There were also holes in the sides of Hrbaty's shorts, and possibly other parts of his tennis outfit which only became apparent when he lunged, thus causing severe distraction to Lleyton Hewitt during their quarter-finals match.
Then there's Taylor Dent who has a tendency to morph into Mr Hyde when he's on hard court.
Check out those choppers. How can anyone possibly see where the tennis ball is when he's on court, blinding everyone so savagely? He must have gone to his dentist and asked for the Hilary Duff special.
Add to that Liz Hurley's white capris and men who can levitate without the aid of a rocket powered backpack....gone are the days when all you had to do was just hit the ball really hard and pray that it didn't kill anyone.
I hope that there are none of these shenanigans at the China Open, but you never know with Carlos Moya and his Spanish compatriots around. I hear they're into ancient Chinese cosplay.
