Hmmm. It seems all I ever post here anymore is W.A.T.C.H. Lists. Perhaps I should just change this blog’s name to WATCH List Tennis instead of Challenger Tennis. Well fear not, loyal Challenger tennis fans, I’ve a post in the works that’s sure to be the best damn thing you’ll ever read*. But enough about me and my lazy malaise; this post is about celebrating other people dammit! (Seriously, though, I’m great.)
Let’s therefore take a look at Who’s Achieved Their Career Highs for the week:
So people, do you see what I see? (NOTE: I’ve highlighted it in blue, so if you don’t see it then you should get your eyes checked.) Yup, that’s right: the Argentinians have continued their relentless assault on the weekly W.A.T.C.H. list charts. And this week there are more then ever! Five (5) (FIVE!) of the Top 10 on this week’s list are from La Legion Argentina.
Seriously, what is in the water in Argentina? Whatever it is, it makes them multiply like career-high Mogwai.
And can this Argentinian water be bottled and exported? Because it’s almost as if the players from other nations are just WATCH list gate-crashers at this point. (And to think, San Juan Challenger winner Guido Andreozzi was only four ranking rungs off his high too!) Nothing surprises me about their success these days. At this rate, I wouldn’t even be surprised if they all were from Tandil, a la Juan Martin del Potro, Juan Monaco, Maximo Gonzalez and others. (Del Potro, by the way, thinks it’s the meat and not the water.)
