James Blake went to Harvard right?

From his blog today:
Quote:
There's a different feel to being back on tour again. I feel when I get on the road my life slows down a little because there is less to worry about. When you're on tour you have to be singularly focussed on preparing to win tennins matches. When you're at home you're making sure your girlfriend is happy, that you've answered all your emails, that all the bills are paid - all the little things that go with normal life.

Re: James Blake went to Harvard right?

meow! Good one.

Ooo, James made a typo or two (assuming that they put his raw submission up, the misspellings could be the fault of whoever transcribed it/proofread it for the site).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

"Focussed" is the correct spelling.

Re: James Blake went to Harvard right?

Anyway, didn't our dear president go to Harvard? And I feel pretty confident saying that I think he leaves a lot to be desired in the intellect department.

Re: James Blake went to Harvard right?

Of course, he knows how to spell "tennis," but when you make a mistake like that where everyone can see it, teasing is sure to come.

And I can tease him, since we went to the same college, although unlike him, I actually graduated.

Meow again!



C'mon, Lleyton!

Although I'll probably end up with as much, if not more money, than he does, since my career will be longer.

No you won't. He'll get plenty from endorsements and publicity.

Unless he wins a slam, his value is over once he retires. He'll be coaching for a living, you watch. He really should have stuck it out for another two years and gotten his BA. From what I've read, he was making decent enough grades.
