Honeymoon: Serbian Tennis Hero Janko Tipsarevic to Battle France in Davis Cup Final - Live on Tennis Channel
O’s Janko Tipsarevic is ridiculously pumped. The Serbian Tennis Hero, who stunned the Czech Republic in an ultra electric Davis Cup semifinal match in front of an utterly raucous Serbian home crowd in September, is set to lead his country’s squad into battle in the Finals. The team will take the court once again in front of a decidedly partisan home crowd in Belgade. The opening match, sure to draw the eyes of tennis fans across the Globe, will pit Janko against French Tennis sensation Gael Monfils. In Janko’s trademark prescription Flak Jackets, that is. It all goes down at 5:00 a.m. Pacific on Dec. 3 – live on the Tennis Channel.
In the most dramatic match ever from the young Oakley Rx player on the ATP World Tour, Janko Tipsarevic took down the 2003 U.S. Open Champion, Andy Roddick in front of a very pro America crowd. It took Janko one set to wake up, but once he did it was full on and there was nothing Roddick could do to stop him.
Monday’s can be tough for everyone no matter what their profession, the cult classic “Office Space” had a great line that was used several times, that one might have a case of the Mundays, or issue with starting off their week. Well this did not hold true for the three top Oakley tennis players at this year’s US Open being on opening day in the sweltering late summer heat of NYC.
