sa watch: wimbledon edition

After this year’s Wimbledon, everyone’s going home with their own “crazy rain delay” story. For example, Robin Soderling lost his fellow players’ respect after his marathon match with Nadal, Venus survived a scare against Morigami, and Brazilian doubles pair Andre Sa and Marcelo Melo, well, uhm…

…they beat Hanley and Ulyett after a record-setting fifth set (28-26). Bad weather forced the match to span almost six hours over five days.

Sa said: “We were lucky to have Gustavo Kuerten here with us. Guga watched the game and gave us some help with the match and also gave us the confidence to believe we can go out there and win. With results like this he might get a full-time coaching job, but we think he will probably be too expensive!”
