I tried to google it but couldnt figure it out, at least I now maybe know which country you are from :) Here its just called a hipster beard directly translated. Or just Santa Claus:eek:
Not going to post the translation, it might get me a perma-ban. :D :D :D

Wawa totally messing up now - or maybe Paire is finally showing his worth?
Difficult to distinguish.

It´s really funny to call it hipster beard, when it´s big fashion. A slight contradiction to the term´s origin :)

Its not in fashion anymore, that was 5 years ago. Its not really a hipster thing now, but still called a hipster beard by the people that has no clue of fashion :D I just call it beard.:p
Edit-- when I talk fashion I mean high end fashion. Trendy is not "underground". Real hipsters should be cutting edge and close to high end fashion inspired. :p

Gonna be a stern test of Novak's baseline game, that's for sure.
Yeah, and Bautista actually pushed him really well at the 2016 FO, when Novak was still playing his best tennis. And, if he wins, another marathon and a big test can be expected against Nishi/Delpo. It seems to me that Novak's path in the last few tournaments is extremely tougher than Murray's. And Andy is still failing...

Nole needs some tough love in the early rounds. Almagro and Feliciano didn't get the job done in Madrid.

RBA warrior 22 minute hold:eek: for 3-2 vs PCB.
Wow, that's crazy! I still remember the 21 or 22' game on Coria's serve at the end of the 3rd set in the Nadal vs Coria Rome 2005 final when Rafa was leading 5-3 (he won the break). It was exhausting to watch. Will watch this epic game later. Vamos RBA. ;)

I remember that match, RBA took the 1st set right? He's a bit like David Ferrer, shows you where you game's at if you're a top player.

Andy has been getting quite a few easy draws this year but he got a landmine in Rome early on, Fognini played some really inspired tennis.

Yeah, RBA took the first set and broke him several times after. He can be pretty tricky when he's playing well, hitting flat with pace and not missing is a "strategy" you can't defend against that easy.

Regarding Murray, Fog was arguably the toughest opponent on clay he could've gotten in the first/second round, especially if he's playing well, and he is. But, his other losses this year (excluding Barcelona) are disturbing.

A talking beard of another kind.:p
Havent you noticed that so many (male:p) tennis players dont shave every day? Think many of them are superstitious and dont shave before they are out of the tournament.
By the looks of Paire he should have won everything since X-mas, but he is just being French:cool:

He definitely cannot win the titles without beating tough opponents, that's for sure.

fognini might tank or give Z a w/o because flavia is due over 2 days
They told me he said in an interview that he'll go to see Pennetta as soon as she's hospitalised (although I don't see how he can make it in time to see the birth, since from my understanding she's in Spain at the moment), so I think a Walkover is more likely than a tank.
