Maybe they are using magic handballs.

action jackson doesn't strike me as someone who's jealous. i'm not talking about the obvious haters but mostly about the neutral spectators.

The best Croatian handball team ever lose by playing badly against the first worthy opponent. Can't even say I'm disappointed or anything, we didn't deserve to win today. France wasn't even as harsh as they usually are, nowhere near the Tunis' level two days ago. Duvnjak was praised in Croatian media for playing a great tournament and then today he was like what, 0/7? Congrats to France, completely outplayed us today. Omeyer, what a beast.

Handball's not a big sport but some nations take it very seriously. It's fun though and will benefit from the widespread exposure.

France are a good team, but lets say they are bit like Stoke City, Osasuna and Chelsea in the last 2 games of the previous champions league. Since the Jack retired it has been more like this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Oh and big props to the US team for laying that beatdown on Argentina.

I just hope Spain gets humiliated in the final.
