ATP Tour Finals: Fascinated Footballers & Police Frisking

Er… Crissy? You wouldn’t be checking yourself out on the stadium JumboTron like we were, huh? Image: Julian Finney/Getty Images.

We are to tennis what hats are to Ladies’ Day at Grand National. As a matter of fact, we’re thinking of upping our court side attendance at more matches in the near future – especially at the ones that take place in Madrid and London.

Don’t get the wrong idea here, Kickettes. We would never consider attending any kind of event just because we might so happen to bump into some hot and famous footballers. No, that would be too pathetically contrived even for us.

We just like tennis, okay?

“Ooh, Jack Wilshere! What a coincidence to run into you here. This old thing? No, we just threw it on this morning. We always wear couture gowns to sports fixtures.” Image: GLYN KIRK/AFP/Getty Images.


Alright, so there may have been a minor scuffle when security caught us trying to sneak into the VIP section. Richard (WTF were we thinking) Chris Smalling and his pal might could’ve remained blissfully unaware if it weren’t for that pesky kid alerting him. Parents, control your children or leave them home. Thanks. Image: AP Photo/Alastair Grant.


This was our “oh crap” moment. Once Kaspar Schmeichel started to slowclap security’s dismemberment of the Mayhem & Fruit Beverage Suite floozies, it was practically game over for all of us. Image: Julian Finney/Getty Images.


We knew we could rely on Gareth to understand our passion for tennis. He didn’t, however, understand our dire need for get-out-of-jail funds. Image: Julian Finney/Getty Images Europe.


Nani was severely disturbed by our antics even though Thomas Castaignede (French rugby player) and Robert Pires could find the humour in it all. We always did like him during his Arsenal days, ya know. Image:


Oh, come on, did you look at all of them?

Good, neither did we.

    Kasper Schmeichel and Joe Hart: *gasps at all the fine-ness in one row, let alone one stadium/ court (or whatever the tennis buildings are called)*

  14. GaiaBale says:

    Plus, you know, i’m not even starting on Gareth. Look at those eyes, that “i know you’re watching but i pretend i don’t” look, that leather jacket. Oh dear.

  15. GaiaBale says:

    I swear i actually like tennis and i play it as well sometimes, but yesterday i struggled to pay attention to it because i was only waiting for the camera to show me one of those handsome ‘ballers.
    I couldn’t help but notice that they almost chose to show up with some quite average friends instead of their ladies, i know it’s because WAGS would probably get bored at tennis matches but i’d rather think they just wanted to show us all how fit are they on comparison to the average boys we’re used to. Bless ‘em.
