Re: Beijing R2: Zhang def. Gasquet 6-4 3-6 6-4

The commentator I had was insufferable. He kept repeating three things:
1. Gasquet and Zhang have never played each other before (duh, this is not uncommon with that kind of ranking disparity and the fact that Zhang has only played 20 tour-level matches in his career)
2. This would be the biggest win of Zhang's career (he was saying this from really early on, even in the 2nd set! )
3. Gasquet is a prime example of unrealized talent and potential (well, no argument there )

I just saw the match on TSN. Kudos to Zhang, but I'm so disappointed with Richie. He was so flat in the third set. Gasquet was 40:15, serving for 5:5, and he managed to lose that game and the final set/match. I really don't know what to expect from Richie any more. He shouldn't be losing this type of matches ... .

Holy DISS. Looks as if Gasquet fans have found their Nadal

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Exciting result for Zhang Ze and Chinese Tennis. The guy lost in straights to a 19 year old Korean in challengers last week, making this result even more surprising
the only slam gasquet is winning is on the French Invitational Seniors tour

if that doesn't exist, then he'll start it, just to feel what its like to be a winner
