    The Wimbledon SP Losers Lounge Is OPEN For Business

    Sobered up from the French yet? Well, guess what? It's time to pick out a fresh stool, and brush up on your knowledge of fine British ales because the Wimbledon Loser's Lounge is open for business.

    Wimbledon has traditionally proven to be the easiest of our four Slam SPs to beat, but that doesn't mean that this place won't be packed by Monday at 4 the end of the fortnight. We've had some truly memorable Wimby bandwagons over the years. After all, Wimbledon's been the Slam that made Alyona Bondarenko's reputation around these parts (well, that and perhaps the less than kind words her sister Katya scribbled on the men's room stalls after a night of drinking Pims and shooting darts with our board's founder, Kirkus). And who could ever forget the Gasquet/Roddick match that may have singlehandedly sent more people to the LL than any single match in SP history. Ah, fun times.


    We've got our SP designated bartender Jessie serving up some of the finest libations. We've got Tatiana Golovin back to work the tables. We've got our infamous Jukebox From Hell (this go 'round it's the "strictly 80s edition of the Jukebox, so dig out those Kajagoogoo and Bananarama B-sides, everybody). And best of all, we've got you...our valued TAT regulars and visitors. You know, you who thought you knew tennis, but wind up here anyway.

    Remember, you lose in one side of the game, you are "half-cheeked". You lose in both the men's and women's game, you are a "full cheeker" and doomed to contend with snark and regret for the remainder of the fortnight.

    "and who can ever forget the Gasquet/Roddick match that may have singly handedly sent more people to the LL than any single match in SP history."

    Never forget that QF match as I was on a path to win medals in consecutive SPs but Roddick blew a 2 set lead by losing 2 consecutive tiebreaks then lost serve to lose the match in the 5th. Gasquet had 93 winners on that day(only to have Moose favorite player hit over 100 winners a few months later at Australian Open against Roddick).

    Ooh, 80's theme!

    I'll start with something British to set the mood...

    This is for Salmon. One truly tacky, incredibly hysterical, poorly choreographed video deserves another:

    Oh my god, when the "singers" in salmon's post moved in front of the mikes to start "dancing" with each other, I died. It was bad, yes, but it got worse.

    Also, random aside: the green sweater reminds me of the flag of Zambia.



    You don't even have to play the video to see the similarities! I don't know why I find this so hilarious; I just do.

    I loved Kajagoogoo - I remember buying the cassette for my tinny Sanyo tape deck - I thought I was so cool. blush

    But you can't beat a little bit of this....

    OK, Moose. I see your hefty bag dresses and 80s hair, and raise you:
    • overused thought bubbles,
    • lame captions, and
    • "Ted! Oh Ted! Fighting off danger!"

    I should have jumped on the Mardy Fish bandwagon, but I thought it would be badass to break the original cardinal rule of the SP (Stay away from the Fly).

    I'm afraid Mahut and I may end up here much earlier than I'd like to. Might as well start a tab

    Both my picks are on court now - this could over quick...or not!
