Another start for the Tennis season. Last year was so great with a different player winning each of the slams, I feel like it’s wide open for everyone this year. In fact, I’m hoping even more players can get in on the act this year. Like maybe Tsonga breaking through, finally.
Djerk apparently won another marathon five set match yesterday to get into the Quarters. Did anyone catch that? Sadly I don’t have cable so there is no way for me to watch footage of Tennis this year except for what is shown on broadcast TV, and what I can squeeze in with visits to my parents’ house.
Tsonga, Federer, Murray are still in the hunt, though sadly Federer is scheduled to go up against Tsonga in the Quarters if they both win their 4th round matches.
Wish I’d caught some of Djoker/Wawrinka. Sounds like it was epic. Fed is coming through his matches very cleanly and hitting very well, although he hasn’t been really tested yet. Tsonga should be a good challenge.
No problems robsam. I didn’t even realize you were trying to be a dick. :P
Such a great Federer-Murray match. I watched it with my Dad. (Don’t tell my wife!)
That fourth set where Federer was up a break and then Murray made that slow dramatic comeback? And then fended off Federer’s break points in that long marathon game at 4-5? And then broke Fed again to go and serve for the match? And then got broken again by Fed to send it to a tie breaker? Only to lose the tie breaker and force a fifth set?
Yeah, that fourth set was amazing. God, what great Tennis. I loooooove watching this Federer, up against the wall, coming up with such amazing tennis again and again. And I love that Murray had to earn every point, and I really hope he wins against Djerk in Sunday’s final.
I told my Dad to record the final, and then not watch it and ignore the news. I’ll do the same on Sunday, then when I get off work on Monday, I can go over to my parents’ and watch the match before my wife gets home from work, just like today, and she’ll be none the wiser. Sweeet. I love it when a plan comes together.
