tattoo watch: andreas haider-maurer


Austria’s Andreas Haider-Maurer lost the first rubber against Israel’s Dudi Sela at this weekend’s Davis Cup World Group Play-offs (in Tel Aviv). The scoreline: 6-4, 6-1, 6-3. Last month, Haider qualified for the 2010 US Open Main Draw on his first try; he lost to Robin Soderling in the first round. Not sure what that tattoo is… possibly a bible verse?

Even: Jurgen Melzer beat Harel Levy to put the tie at 1-1. See all the stats here.

Update: That tattoo isn’t a bible verse… Andreas’ camp tells us that this (6:55) is the exact time of his birth.

    Cool tattoo, even if I don’t know the player that well.
    I’m thinking it’s referencing John 6:55. Basically talks about flesh being food and blood being drink–meaning god is nourishment for the soul.
    But if we’re talking tattoos, I would much rather decipher Janko’s body of work…
