Wait. What? Those wacky Spaniards and the way they change the spatial orientation of sports in order to promote events in their country. No, it’s true: don’t you remember the crazy “Horizontal Rock Climbing” stunt in advance of the World Mountaineering Championships in Barcelona way back in 1982? Now that was a scene, man, although it’s a shame that 28 people died. Not sure how, though.
Anyhoo, the above image depicts two acrobats playing “Vertical Tennis” high up on a facade of building in order to kick-off the Madrid Open tennis tournament, which begins on Friday. Weird stuff.
One question: where was the damn ball? Call me a stickler for details, but without a ball, it’s not really vertical tennis so much as it is “Two Window Washers Totally Slacking Off.” What a ripoff. Get the squeegees and get to work, you two.
