Hi there, dear folks!
I haven't been around lately, as I've been very busy with my work as a social lawyer for the poor and deprived people in my country lately (most of all, voluntary work, btw
), but I'd like to let you all know that all's well with me, just very busy, but I haven't missed anything of Roger's matches as of yet, and neither will I miss his upcoming match against Jo-Willie tomorrow morning.
Rog has very much impressed me so far, especially his serve, which might well be THE key to bring him further in this tournament. Hope he manages to keep it going!
I just cannot express how *gutted* I felt for Stan, losing that match against Houdinovic (GREAT nick, thanks Doris!
) - it may well be the most saddest I felt ever since the AO final 2009, for the player that lost the match! / and this without Stan Wawawrinka even being a fav of mine until so far, well he IS, now / what a heroic effort!!!
In contrary to what was the case at that aforementioned AO 2009 final (Rafa showing himself a very understanding and warm hearted victor against Rog at that time), at this particular occassion I felt incapable to feel any
sympathy for the winner at all, even the less when I watched Houdinovic tearing up his shirt like a possessed gorilla like he did after the match. So far for showing the required respect for your opponent after such a match, eh?? Ugh.
Donīt mind me, itīs just my personal opinion.
Hope allīs well with you folks, and letīs hope the best for Roger in a couple of hours.
to ye all!
