LOL, Gasquet did squash his competitor something like 6-1, 6-2! I really hope he & Mario Ancic can qualify for the Open, then all of my boys will be in!

Okay, I'm going to post this installment so I can get on with the packing, LOL!

Talking C. Dri & PMac summarize the day

Cliff: Well, Patrick, it certainly has been an eventful day.

PMac: That's right, Cliff. The Corretja-Pavel match was quite entertaining! In the first set, Corretja was up 5-0, then suddenly looked sick to his stomach and proceeded to lose the next two games, one when he was serving for the set. During the medical time out, while he was waiting for the trainer to get there from Stadium Court (Marcelo Rios was bitching at Dougy Spreen about a new knee pad), like magic, Alex looked better and insisted on a normal changeover time.

Cliff: Perhaps more amazing, Pavel didn't object.

PMac: Corretja went on to take the first set, 6-2, and the second 6-3. A routine win for him today, though he played up to the crowd a little.

Cliff: So did Pavel. (Video of Pavel making faces and exchanging words after good points with Corretja)

PMac: Juan Carlos Ferrero also had a good win earlier today, defeating Fabrice Santoro convincingly--6-3, 6-3. He was playing very well. His game was tight for the whole match, as he made only 10 unforced errors!

Cliff: Now, Patrick, these two are headed right for each other in the draw, they are seeded to meet in the semifinals. They have been the talk of the tournament so far. As we told you earlier, Juan Carlos Ferrero has levied a fine of $1 million for refusing to speak to the media about his wife's escapades. (The same video as before Juan Carlos's match is played again.) Alex Corretja has been dragged into this because he's been seen with Layla Ferrero on the grounds here. (A bad picture of Layla flashes on screen as the boys discuss her )

PMac: Juan Carlos has been spotted with someone else as well. It's quite the story, since both Ferrero & Corretja are private guys. One has to wonder why they are suddenly airing their laundry in public.

Cliff: One also has to wonder if either of them have looked past their possible semifinal clash. Waiting in the wings could be Carlos Moya.

PMac: That's right, Cliff. Moya has decimated his half of the draw, taking out former world #1 Lleyton Hewitt in three tough sets; then "the second Goran", Mario Ancic, in three sets as well, 7-6 in the third. That was a close match, I really believed Ancic could pull it off, but he ran out of gas at the end.

Cliff: It was a good showing by the Croat. Ancic has only gotten better since the U.S. Open '02, where he made a run to the Round of 16 as a qualifier.

PMac: Moya plays Agassi in the third round here in Canada, Cliff. Agassi is a former top player himself, though he's struggled a bit in the majors.

Cliff: Do you think he was broken when Safin defeated him in the final of the Open in '02? ()

PMac: I think he had to take a long assessment of his career, Cliff. He took time off last year when Steffi gave birth to their second child--a daughter--and seems to have come back strong this year, winning in Scottsdale & LA.

Cliff: His best showing this year in a major was at Wimbledon, when he got to the quarterfinals. Tim Henman managed to clip him there in a long, tough battle.

PMac: Indeed. He's taken time off since Wimbledon, and has played some good, if long, matches here in Canada. I think he'll give Moya a good test. I'd even give him a chance to win it, Cliff.

Cliff: I'm not sure about that, Patrick, Moya has turned hard courts into his best surface. Either way, that's how it's looking here in Canada. Ferrero & Corretja through to the third round and headed right for each other in the draw; Carlos Moya waiting on the other side. We'll see you tomorrow!

Well, you can do it after your birthday. I find it helps if I just decide to read like 100 pages at once. Just sacrifice the whole day to it. And then the next day I can be free. But these are just my motivational tactics. It may not work for you.

Well, I'm off to bed now.

See you all tomorrow at the party!

When exactly is your birthday Leo (I mean the time) so we can congratulate you at the right moment?

Oh that reminds me. You never responded to my hints that you should tell us about your taste in music.

Haha, sorry. But you know they always have the horrible pictures of people on screen while they're talking about them.

Yes, I was packing today and will be running around all day tomorrow, so I might not get to check in as much as I'd like. Sorry I missed you tonight

I'm definitely going to do another installment before Leo's birfday. Err, happy birthday

Yeah, Leo, let us know when to gather so I can properly "gather" hitman to sing our duet.
