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.

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:

Rafa Nadal Wins Werewolf Style after Joining Team GG

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, back with the second part of my two-pronged opening 2013 to a sporting theme Fantastic Mr. Fox Greenygrey comedy-satire marketing campaign centred on Spain. Yes, not only was Marc Latham kitted out in greenygrey for his big sports event of the year, but Spain’s top tennis player Rafa Nadal has chosen greenygrey for his new kit.

Rafa Nadal Wins in California Comeback

And the greenygrey worked wonders, as Nadal won the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. Nadal, who has always showed the potential to be a great werewolf, beat Juan Martín Del Potro 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the final, after also being 0-2 down in the second set. Nadal earlier knocked out his old nemesis Roger Federer, who seems more of a vampire.

It was a great win for Nadal in his comeback from a serious injury, suffered before he chose greenygrey, and the Greenygrey was delighted to be chosen as part of his return and rehabilitation. Here’s an image of Nadal and the Greenygrey celebrating his final victory from the Guardian:
