Funny, clever, recap of the 2010 Aussie Open

Found this on one of the other message boards. Just a quick, funny, recap of everything that's happened this year.

Doesn't give a ton of analysis, but a good read anyway.

Enjoy!

6. I'm always amazed at how attached I get to the players over the course of a major. It happens every single time.

As far as I can tell, the reason is this: Tennis is an individual sport. It has no helmets, masks or pads hiding the players faces and emotions, so you see everything. When a guy (or girl) isn't playing their best, you see it. When a player is genuinely hurt, you see it.. When someone thinks a line judge screwed them over, you see it. And after two weeks, after seeing every agonoizing emotion, over five or six matches, you really feel like you know these guys. You start pulling for them.

The other day, I woke up in the middle of the Novak Djokovic- Jo-Wilfried Tsonga match, and I actually thought to myself, "Damn, I don't want to see either of these guys lose."

Which is probably my least favorite part of any major tennis tournament. Saying goodbye to old friends. Even as you're making new ones.
LOL I feel the same, so true.



Novak Djokovic nº1!

The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

I gather you've found out the answer to your question all by yourself right now.


"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"
