Paes The Lord



Here is a real unsung hero in the land of Sania worshippers. I don't watch tennis very regularly these days but i managed to catch parts of Paes/Martin Damm's U.S Open victory. To watch vintage Paes is to watch India's Davis Cup ties. The opponent maybe an obscure but tenacious Shuzuo Matsuoka from Japan or whoever, and it would just be a qualifying playoff but what mattered was Paes being in the court. Hmmmm adhellam oru kaalam :(

P.S: I still miss his old serve action - the pronounced 'leaning back' and 'falling forward'

  • When Pacha writes his autobiography 5-6 years from now(he might play till 2010), this pic is sure to find a place in it.

    You saw the pic first in Bala's blog!

  • "Land of Sania worshippers"---- attaboy Bala....
    I am no Paes fan(romba overacting annachi IMO), but he surely deserves more recognition than Sania, who is going the Anna Kournikova path.

  • pPaes is a TREMENDOUS overachiever. I am actually disappointed at how Sridhar and Bala have underplayed his achievements :( Will blog sometime about his games.

    He has by now cracked the top 5 in both singles and doubles in Davis Cup history. Click
