milos’ melbourne mastery

January 21, 2011

Which one doesn’t belong? That would be the fella on the far left – Vasek Pospisil – who is the only man among these four pictured who isn’t still alive and well in the Australian Open draw. That other unfamiliar face – second from left – is one Milos Raonic, a 20-year-old Canadian who has advanced to the fourth round of the AO with a four-set win today over 10th seed Mikhail Youzhny. In six matches (including three qualifying wins), Raonic has dropped just two sets. He’ll face no. 7 seed David Ferrer in the Round of 16.

brazil and canada played by the rules

Dancevic against the Brazilian, Melo; Polansky

Canadian colors all the way.


Daniel Nestor and Frederic Niemeyer; with costume change

And Brazil stuck to their colors:


Flavio Saretta; Guga Kuerten playing doubles with Andre Sa

If only all countries could follow in their footsteps.

p.s. Brazil won. It’s good to know that even if Guga doesn’t make it far in ATP tournaments, we’ll at least be seeing him at the next round of Davis Cup (barring injury, of course). Here they are, celebrating:
