The great Sybille Bammer takes on the unflappable Marion Bartoli today in our Match of the Day on Louis Armstrong. Bammer, as we’ve discussed all week long, has inspired us all with her prowess on the court; Bartoli, the little French lady with the impossibly long ponytail, has always been one of our favorite players.
Based on how Jelena Jankovic struggled today–she won in three tough sets over Caroline Wozniacki–it’s not unimaginable that the winner of the Bammer-Bartoli match could knock off Jelena and get to the semis.
I won’t break the tie and root for anyone, (unlike Zack) but give us Bartoli in three sets and things will get really interesting.
