So as I was doing my daily scroll through the tennis photo banks today something, or rather someone, caught my ever curious eye. His name is Maxime Teixeira and he's a 21-year old Frenchie who competes primarily on the ATP Challenger Tour and ITF Futures according to his Wiki page; he won his first Challenger title earlier this year. But, today, he won his first round match at Roland Garros taking out compatriot Vincent Millot 2-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-1.
I'm sure the Frenchies are happy to have another one of theirs make it through the opening gate. And besides, the men's draw is a much better place with Max in it. Why you ask? 'Cause he's HAWT. Duh.
Anyway, here's hoping we get him on a local TV/computer screen in the very near future. And the chances are good we will since he takes on either Roger Federer or Feliciano Lopez in the next round. Ah well, enjoy him while he lasts.
