They're 2-2 against Nestor and Zimonjic, who played absolutely amazing in their semi, so it's a tough one for them I fear
I am glad that they are still in the tournament, but you're right. it is going to be a tough one :awwww: (I wish I could say I was up that early doing something fun on call I am afraid, and then went to work where a client had chair throwing on his agenda for the day) The fires affecting you at all?

Not fun at all, especially when I don't move fast enough

Well not surprising, the twins lost in 2. they had a break in the first and gave it right back, then bob DFed at 3-4 in the tiebreak. they had other chances throughout the first and then nestor/zimonjic really raised their level in the 2nd and played great. fix your shoulder bob please

Poppin' in, but yeah, not surprising they lost. I would have honestly been a lot more shocked if the Bryans won, considering Nestor/Zimonjic have just been playing pretty fantastically the whole time there and the Bryans, not-exactly-so-much. I'm actually happy they even got as far as the finals, I thought they were gonna lose to Fyrstenberg/Matkowski in the SF (which might have happened if Matkowski's serving had been better).

It sucks with this loss they also ended up losing the YE no. 1 position (and that the GM!Doubles forum will probably have a ball with it. I don't get their hate -- is it founded on anything or is it just general asshattery?), but I'm not too sad as Nestor/Zimonjic deserved it. Though their speeches just made me when they both ended up mentioning Bob's injury and stuff. I hope Bob is able to rest up, get that shoulder taken care of, and Mike and him come back roaring in the 2009 season.

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

As far as I can tell, yes. Besides not liking their chest bumps and maybe a few here and there not caring for their brand of tennis, i've never heard anything at all substantive about them. Oh, that and they're American and some people are too ignorant to be able to get past their "frat boy" exuberance to see how much they actually do for the sport (the commentators postulated that they spend more time and energy trying to help the sport than anyone on the doubles OR singles tour ) and how hard they work and how good they are.

I figured it was something like that (the chest bumps, that they're -- o noes -- American, etc.).

I always find it so amusing how a good portion of the Americans get this automatic flack or pegged as a jerk, yet these same people are some of the bigger/biggest philanthropists and/or advocates for the sport to support/better it -- more so than many others on the tour or sports players, in general. I mean, what's up with that? What do you mean off-court they aren't stealing candy from babies and popping little kids' balloons just to see them cry? Way to not live up to the standard/image. Geez.

But, I digress--

Go Bob & Mike '09!
