le sigh: pico bites the red dust



TSF’s clay hope Juan Monaco — he once had the goods to back this up — did his unseeded duty by going taut-belly up against ninth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. We expect Tsonga to easily beat Christophe Rochus (who won the battle of the munchkins against Arnaud Clement), but to fall to Juan Martin Del Potro in the round of 16.

Three stripes times two: Pico’s steady baseline game was accented by the adidas Spring Edge Print Crew, while Tsonga’s all-attacking style was covered in the season’s Zip Crew.

Buy: adidas Spring Edge Print Crew, $35.99, phantom/pool blue and white/blank; Spring Competition Zip Crew, cyan/black/white and neon yellow/white, $43.99.

  1. This match was full of eye candy from both guys- and the net exchange was great.

    It is too bad that Monaco still has not seemed to regain the confidence he had in 2007. He can play well- but then not seem to believe he can win. I hope he finds it again. And i have noticed-while he can look good in pictures- they do not really do his looks justice. When you see him in motion- that is when you can really see his sexiness.

    I really wanted for Monaco to win. I had high hopes for him. I too wrote about this match on my blog, Very disappointed.
