The Rushing Russian

"Titan, I asked if you will watch the games at Sochi in Florida, not do you eat sushi" corrected a euphoric Vladimir 'Russkie' Kartsev. "Your hearing is worse than your volleying" continued the 'victorious Vladimir.'"Rarely do I taste the sweet nectar of victory when I play with someone other than Bill 'Energizer Bunny Legs' Tully, so today I bask in an unexpected outcome.To win with you TT against these two reminds me of the shock of the Miracle on Ice in the motherland." Indeed, TennisTitan and the 'rejuvenated Russian' managed a (6-4) triumph against 'Big Al' Diodati and 'EBL.' The tandem was a break up (4-3 partial) in the second set when time expired. Titan lauded the play of his usually moribund partner who showed hustle to the ball, pop and placement on his serve, and more control than usual on his oft erratic backhand. 'Big Al' put it in perspective at picture time noting that this outing was his first since returning from the outdoor courts at Pompano Beach, and that for today at least, 'EBL' stood for 'eviscerated, broken, limping' wheels accounting for the 'Tullyville trolley's inability to chase down balls that usually come back as winners.
