Talking The Hopman Cup (Not So) Blind Items Thread

Firstly, I would post this in the Hopman Cup forum, but then I wouldn't have much of a readership.

Secondly, some of these aren't too far from the truth, while some are pure deductions and observations.

(Not So) Blind Items:

An Australian female participant in this years' Hopman Cup literally bumped into this keen observer as she was about to enter a pub... in the middle of the day! This keen observer was a little surprised by her appearance, as much as she was. And she was looking very guilty about having been spotted entering the boozy premises. Maybe she was just meeting a friend (Yeah, his name was Bud, and his mates were Fosters and Guinness).

A trusty spy from the locker room divulged this curious info. A male Greek competitor brought along his boyfriend to the Hopman Cup. The Greek player is rather humble-looking, but his other half is one gorgeous babe. I might be mistaken. The babe in question could just be his brother. But how many brothers do you know kiss on the lips and hold hands like loverrrrrs? The babe was also in the players box to watch his dude fight for Greece, and only worked up any enthusiasm when his man dazzled on court.

A female Greek competitor claimed that she was nervous before her match against her Italian opponent, but observations concur that the sluggishness could possibly be due to some added extra kilos over the Christmas break. That and the fact that she did not hit the practice court for a warm up before her match. After the match, the Greek girl also spent very little time cooling down, while her Italian opponent was busy performing a series of complicated contortions in the middle of the locker room.

A particular Argentinian pair seemed very lovey-dovey towards each other despite only meeting a few days prior. An insider suggests that they are together, or are at least entertaining the possibility of teaming up on and off the court. This keen observer also noticed that the pair had very positive body language towards each other. This could mean very little, or could mean a lot!

That's all for now. Don't rack your brains too hard. If you have to, then we're all in trouble. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

PS. I'll be at the Hopman Cup all week. So perhaps there'll be another series of these on Monday night.

PPS. I had a weird dream a few nights ago. I dreamt that I was hired to be a minder for a player at the Hopman Cup. My player was Arnaud Clement and he kept using me as his sex toy. He used phrases like, "Come here! I want sex! Now!" and "No! Fuck now! Eat later!" LOL. The thing is, I've never ever given Arnaud Clement a second thought in my life, nor has he ever been my first choice for sex master. It was so weird. <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

PPPS. This thread just took a very kinky turn. <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

"I probably respect Monica more than any other player out there. Not only as a player, but also as a good friend, and an amazing person. I was so happy to see her play well last week, and then score some big upsets here this week. But I was also very happy to close it out in two sets, because as we've seen these past few weeks, Monica never gives up." - Lindsay Davenport after defeating Monica Seles to win the Classic title

Thanks for the observations. Take some pix and share if you are able, please.

DAMN! Too bad Greece lost, otherwise I would have seen them (the two guys) on TV! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Molik! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> What in the heck is she thinking! <img src="frown.gif" border="0"> If she loses to Vavrinec, she can always blame it on a hangover! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Thanks, Braveheart! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
