Google Down the Line!: PHOTO OP: The VICTORY stance

"Ya heard?!?!"

I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it with my own eyes. Homeboy Stephane Robert, a 31-year old journeyman, caused a major upset at Roland Garros shocking Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-3, 2-6, 2-6, 9-7 in the first round to the roar of the French crowd. Though he fell behind two sets Steph never relented, getting on top of the ball in the latter part of the match and striking down-the-line winners at will. He ended with 62 winners to only 40 for the Czech. The Frenchie will face off against Brows a.ka. Fabio Fognini for a spot in the third round.

As for Big Berd he'll lose a shit load of points after reaching the final four last year. Then, of course, there's Wimbledon where he was a finalist falling to Rafael Nadal. Let's hope the grass is indeed greener for him.
