French Open – Canadian Grand Prix Satirical Comedy Sports

It was a mixed weekend for Team GG, which is perhaps fitting for a werewolf side. There was double tennis success at the French Open, but it was Red Bull‘s day at the Canadian Formula One Grand Prix.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, satirical comedy sports correspondent at the greenYgrey, inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Maria Sharapova Wins French Open

Maria Sharapova added to her success at the Madrid Open last month, where she also found time to invent the gYgboo, with a thrilling three sets French Open final win over Simona Halep of Romania. It was her second French Open Women’s Singles title.

Sharapova celebrated with a boomerang to her family, friends and coaches watching in the crowd. She was wearing a nice pinkyorange outfit from her collection rather than greenygrey, but Roland Garros was greatly greenygrey.

Boomeranging at Roland Garros in the intense heat and wall-to-wall greenygrey they enjoyed this weekend needs practise, and this photo shows that Sharapova had been training hard for such circumstances.

Rafa Nadal Wins Record Title

Team GG’s original werewolf warrior, Rafa Nadal, won his fifth French Open title in a row, and a record-breaking ninth overall, to make him the undoubted all-time King of Clay.

Nadal beat Novak Djokovic in four sets, after losing the first one. While neither wore green or yellow, Nadal wore grey shorts and a grey bandanna, and that could have given him the edge.

They say every dog has its day, and it seems the same is true for red bulls. That’s because Red Bull got their first Formula One win for many a moon at the Canadian Grand Prix, as Ricciardo overtook Team GG/Mercedes’s Nico Rosberg just before the last lap.

It was the first win of the 2014 season for Red Bull, and they are still a long way behind Mercedes/Team GG in the constructors’ championship.

Formula 1 and Tennis Team GG Double Double

There was mucho celebrando in the Greenygrey world over the weekend, as Team GG’s Djokovic and Nadal played against each other in the Miami Masters final, while greenygrey Mercedes dominated the Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sports report hot off the press from the weekend’s top greenygrey sporting action.

It’s probably my best report since the last March 28th one, although some may argue it’s even better; greenygrey style; with that one including rugby union success, a Grand Prix first place, and tennis quarter-finalists; while this one has Grand Prix and tennis final 1-2s for Team GG.

Miami Masters Tennis

Novak Djokovic came out on top in Miami. Team GG analysts wondered whether this was a changing of the guard, but decided in the end that there’s still time for Nadal to bounce back to the top of the Team GG rankings.

Djokovic celebrated his victory in true greenygrey style:

Hamilton – Rosberg Win Malaysian Grand Prix

After Nico Rosberg won the first Formula 1 Grand Prix of the season for greenygrey Mercedes in Australia, Team GG went one better in Malaysia, as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg did the double for Mercedes.

Last season’s champion, Sebastian Vettel, got some consolation for Team GG’s big rivals Red Bull by taking the final position on the podium with third place.

Here’s a great greenygrey photo of Hamilton driving to victory:

There was probably a lot more great greenygrey sporting action over the weekend, but the above is all I’m a-were of!

Tennis, Formula 1 and Rugby Union Satirical Comedy Sports

The motor racing, rugby union and tennis worlds have been lit up in greenygrey in recent weeks, and I’ve been straining at the leash to get a look in at the Greenygrey; to be able to update you.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with a Greenygrey comedy satire sports report.

Miami Masters Tennis

Tennis has been a great servant to promoting the Greenygrey, with Rafa Nadal possibly the greatest ever Team GG player.

Nadal has been on about 50% greenygrey top form at the Miami Masters Sony Open, with the tournament to match:

Whereas newcomer to Team GG, Novak Djokovic, has been on 100% form:

Ireland Win Six Nations Rugby Union

Ireland won the rugby union Six Nations title in Europe, and wore a greenygrey shirt while winning it. It was their captain Brian O’ Driscoll‘s last season, so it was like a kind of Greenygrey’s Rambles fairytale for him getting the title and man of the match award while wearing a greenygrey shirt in his last international game.

Here’s O’ Driscoll after the game:

Mercedes’s Rosberg Wins Australian Grand Prix

Motor racing has also played a big part in Greenygrey sport, what with the tracks usually very greenygrey, and the Red Bull team partly influencing Team GG.

The new season reached new heights of greenygreyness in the first grand prix, as Nico Rosberg won the Australian Grand Prix in Mercedes’s greenygrey car. This photo captures the new greenYgrey brand in all its glory:

Good luck to all the sportspeople this weekend, and that includes our old inspirations and rivals Red Bull, who have been having a tough time due to Formula 1 rule changes.

Rafa Nadal Wins U.S. Open for Team GG

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey, inspired by darts legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams. Great news (if a little late) from the U.S. Open tennis, where Team GG’s star member, Rafa Nadal, won the men’s title in a great final against Novak Djokovic. Moreover, it was a return to greenygrey form for Nadal, after he’d worn an alternative kit while winning the French Open.

U.S. Open Photos

The U.S. Open can look greenygrey from afar, as shown in this image (mind the gap):

But it is in fact greenyblue.

Therefore, Nadal could combine greenygrey colours in kit and racket without making himself invisible and gaining an unfair advantage. The racket green was on the verge of being yellow, to stand out on the green court:

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon, Lions Win Australia Test Series

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Sorry to those tuning in for your second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps of the week, but an amazing weekend of greenygrey-relevant sport took place this weekend, so the next thrilling installment of your favourite werewolf travels Australia fantasy travel adventure has been rescheduled to Monday.

British and Irish Lions Outpace Wallabies

The weekend started off on the right paw when the British and Irish Lions caught the Australian Wallabies on the hop, winning the third test 41-16 to take the series 2-1.

It was the first Lions series win since 1997, and first in Australia since Marc Latham helped them to another series deciding win in Sydney 1989.

The Lions were more reminiscent of wolves than lions this time in Sydney, as their endurance saw them to victory after the Wallabies courageously fought back from a large opening half-hour deficit. (the Lions are of course known as Wolves in the wolf world, and Wollions in the Greenygrey world).

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon

Then Andy Murray became the first British (thank you Scotland) Wimbledon men’s champion since 1936 on Sunday. While winning the Wimbledon warm-up tournament at Queens Murray wore a kit that has been passed by the Board of Greenygrey Sport as sufficiently greenygrey to be greenygrey.

After winning the Wimbledon title, one of the first things Murray did was to embrace the Greenygrey:

The commentator said that sporting immortality doesn’t come easily. We know that werewolf immortality doesn’t either!

Rafa Nadal French Open Final for Team GG

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, comedy satire sports correspondent at the Greenygrey. Great news for Team GG yesterday, as Rafa Nadal won through to tomorrow’s French Open men’s final at Roland Garros. We’re celebrating today with a fantastic French Open google-searched greenygrey photo special.

Rafa Nadal v Novak Djokovic

We had some mixed feelings yesterday, as Rafa Nadal wore an away Team GG kit, while Novak Djokovic almost wore greenygrey.

With Nadal the werewolf of the top men’s players, and Federer the vampire, Djokovic must be the very strong and good looking (being diplomatic not gay for all homophobic people) Frankenstein.

So in the end, we had to plump for Nadal… after he won! Commiserations to Djokovic, who reminded us of our close letter relative F in defeat, with our G(G) getting all the gglory in recent years.

French Open Losing Competitors like Fs

So, wishing the weekend’s finalists luck, we remember those who took part too, as we can relate to them in the letter world: there would be no G without an F before it.

And maybe the F would be where the G is today, if it hadn’t shared the F sound with PH. So, here’s some fun fantastic French Open photos… in glorious greenygrey:
