I Lost to Redfoo: A Tennis Story

Stefan Gordy, or Redfoo, a member of LMFAO

This article follows Paul Wachter and his road to trying to qualify for the US Open.  He plays a doubles match vs Stefan Gordy, or Redfoo, a member of LMFAO.

“Redfoo has Sideshow Bob hair and is the proprietor of LaFreak, a line of tennis clothes that would make ‘90s-era-bleach-and-neon Andre Agassi blush, but he’s not a professional tennis player. He played the same tournament two years ago, losing in singles in the first round (6-1, 6-2) to a Fresno City College player.”

Paul writes on his attempt to beat Redfoo and Lester Cook, an ex-tennis professional.  Things started to go downhill.

“It was tough to win points serving to Cook. His one-handed backhand was a thing of beauty, and if he got to see a second serve (my weakest shot) he’d step in and hit a massive forehand at my shoelaces or down the alley past my partner at the net. And after hitting a couple of dinky slice returns — we were targeting Redfoo’s backhand — Redfoo started returning aggressively.”

It’s a really interesting article, give it a read if you have the time.
