My cousins in Sweden have gone absolutely crazy over the news, and he's guarranted front page coverage in tomorrow's papers. It's been a while since they could really celebrate a nice result.
I'm sure they have, and rightfully so. This was a huge deal and a once in a lifetime kind of win. I know it crushed Nadal fans, but over joyed the Swedes and Soderling fans. I've been on both sides of that scenario and much prefer your side on this one.

Nope I took pride in not watching it. Susan Boyle really pisses me off and that Holly kid was enough to drive a sane person insane.

I did like the look of the dance acts in the qualifying rounds though.

Glad I'm not alone in thinking Boyle was kinda cr@p.

Yeah, I would have been happy with either Flawless or Diversity as winners, but Diversity just edged it on the night; their routine was amazing.

I see you are racking up the vcash CD, well done man

I think I will also put some vcash on Monfils, but I will put vcash on Tsonga instead, since I kinda want Del Pony to win for obvious reasons

Hope it gets better. But the upside of it all if you do indeed have an off day is that you can watch the matches

Re: •°o*Everyday is a Journey for the Warrior, and the Journey is Home/ the Castle, v

I hope Monfils boots the old Rod Prick out of France in 3 sets. I'd like for him to win the whole thing. France needs it and he's their best hope. But I'm guessing a four setter to the American.

DelPotro/Tsonga should be a five set barn burner. Unless errors come flying off Tsonga's racquet in which case it's 2 tight ones and an easy slide in the third loss in 3 sets for Tsonga.

I could care less about Robredo (anyone reminded of that Twilight guy by him?) and Kohlschreiber. I guess Kohls in four.

Haas/Federer SHOULD be interesting, given their history. When Haas was returning from shoulder surgery and before Fed was 'affected by mono' Haas played him close and beat him in exo, even taking him to five tight ones in Australia. Clay should be better suited to Haas' movement, but it mitigates his bombs of serves and backhands. Fitness is on the decline for him as well, given his age, and lack of progress this year. It SHOULD be a good one, but I'm afraid Haas will whimper out in 3 easy sets.

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

I have to be there until 11.30 and someone else comes in so even if I am literally next to a bucket for 2 and a 1/2 hrs I will go in until my colleague can take over.

mimi Rafa is no where near finished. He is still young and I expect him to bounce back from this. I'm still not sure about roger. He hasn't been playing all that well and I could see some players troubling him, if not defeating him. Hope the pressure doesn't get to him.
