tuesday night treats at the countrywide classic


From the frontlines: Well, far behind the baselines, really. I was at UCLA tonight watching James Blake brush off his rusty game to beat Alexander Peya in two sets. Turns out that was just a warm-up for the upset of top seed Fernando Gonzalez by hometown fave Zack Fleishman. This is the former Bruin’s best scalp in five years of playing the Tour’s UCLA stop. He was blasting his forehands just as well as Gonzo. I hope Fernando’s okay… it looked like he was having some right arm trouble.

Sex selling sex: there were some delicious fellas hawking tickets for the upcoming ULTIMATE TENNIS CELEBRATION!!!! EastWest Bank Classic in Carson. They’ve got a decent promo, too: $20 gets you two tickets to an early round match PLUS an “I (heart) SHARAPOVA” or “I (heart) SERENA” shirt. (Guess which shirt I picked.)

Favabean sighting?: I think I saw TSF reader in the stands behind me. Section 16, Chris — was that you?

Others I saw: Amer Delic after winning his doubles match, Paul Goldstein after winning his singles match, Robert Kendrick battling Wesley Whitehouse in the Grandstand Court, and Serena Williams sitting five seats over from Kevin Garnett, both watching Blake.

    Thanks for the tip, Erwin. I’ll have to check the UTC fellas out when I go back to UCLA tomorrow night (hopefully to see James Blake in action). I didn’t check out any booths when I went on Monday.
    P.S. Unfortunately, I’ll be missing Marat tonight. šŸ˜¦

    p.s. my cute UTC booth guy was back tonight, we made eye contact, and he recognized me. plus he was foolish enough to give me his business card yesterday if i have any questions about tickets!?!
