The USA breaks the curse of the Scandinavium (now that’s an artsy horror flick I’d pay to see) and beats Sweden 4-1!!!! Igor Andreev of the fugly forehand and ill-advised headscarf brings hard-fought victory to the Russian squad (3-2)!!!
This means, of course, that we will be hosting Shamil and friends on US soil from November 30 – December 2. The USTA website says the venue will be announced later this week. I’m really hoping, for selfish reasons, of course, that we decide on San Diego. Think of the weather! Do we really want to mess around in Portland?
Russians, if it’s cheaper to fly into LAX, I’ll be happy to drive Marat down there for you.
