Dani got whooped!
but i'm looking forward to a Lindsay/Serena Semifinal! hopefully Lindsay will pull through, i know she can do it!
my report (just for Layla):
i got the Flushing Meadows at around 1:00, when the rain was coming down hard. i sat around in the food court watching the classic Monica Seles vs. Jennifer Capriati '91 Semifinal playing on the big screen for a while, but i was quickly bored, and soking wet!
but patiently i waited, and it payed off!
i was pissed when Ferrero's match got pushed to a side court. it took me a while to find but i had to go and cheer my boy on! Gonzalez was playing really well, he hits the ball so hard! and i just love his one-handed backhand down the line, it's a great shot. i was a bit disappointed Juanqui couldn't pick up his game and maybe start serving better, but he was just outplayed. his hair looked nice though!
i left his match but came back at the end, sadly to see him lose!
on a brighter note, i got to see Lindsay win over Farina Elia in straights. i got a bit worried at first when she dropped the first two games but she picked up her play, cut down on the unforced errors, and started moving better. and of course i was cheering pretty hard, i got really loud at times!lol!
but the rest of the crowd was kinda silent, of course many seats were empty b/c most people went home during the rain delay.
i also saw some of Pete's match on Louis Armstrong. i was confused about who to cheer for, i kept going back and forth between Pete and Greg. but i decided that i would cheer for Pete b/c Tommy (who is playing him right now) just beat Sampras in Toronto this summer, but had lost to Greg in Indy! so i was very happy when he won. i was looking around to find Bridget in the crowd but sadly i couldn't find her!
the Tommy Haas match on the Grandstand was another good one. Haas led 4-0 in the 5th when Thomas started to comne back and i got really scared. but luckily Tommy served his way out of trouble, and finished him off 6-4 in the 5th.
i didn't see any play on Arthur Ashe Stadium, all those matches were straight set crushings. no way did i want to see Alex C go down to A-Rod!
and i saw some of Juju's match on Court 11 in the 2nd set, but i didn't stay for the end. too bad!
and i would have liked to see Kimmy's match against Amelie, but i had to get home and get some sleep!lol! i'm kinda glad i left early tho, i don't think i would have been able to watch another one of my faves lose!
but overall it was another wonderful night in NY, so much great tennis ALL OVER the grounds. but i was so tired out from running all over from court to court. and now my hand is tired out from writing all this so i'll stop.
