I loved that song, it's my new ringtone.











not.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Meeting Roddick a dream come true for 95-year-old
By Dave Link
December 10, 2008

It will be a dream come true for the living legend, 95-year-old Dave Carey of Asheville, N.C., who has won 31 USTA national seniors titles.

Roddick, ranked No. 8 in the world, will be playing the Rock-n-Racquets/BB&T exhibition at the University of Tennessee's Thompson-Boling Arena along with touring pros Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki and John Isner.

Organizers of the exhibition have agreed to let Carey meet Roddick.

"I'd love to meet him," Carey said Tuesday at Centre Court Racquet Club during a visit to Knoxville, where he once lived. "I hope I can meet him. I have some suggestions for him."

Carey, visiting with his wife, Peg, and his son, Peter, has been a huge fan of Roddick for years.

He has written letters to Roddick with suggestions for his tennis game - particularly ways to improve his backhand - and followed Roddick's rise to stardom.

"I've always admired the way he plays," Carey said. "There's not too many guys today who have the ability to serve-and-volley. I learned tennis as a kid on English grass courts, and we were always told never to let the ball bounce because on grass you never knew where it was going to go."

Carey was born in Malaysia on an island, Carey Island, owned by his family. He was the first non-Asian born on the island. He went to a boarding school as a 6 year old, and saw his family once every three years before they moved to Canada when he was 17.

Carey started playing at age 7 and has played all his life, off and on. Ironically, his first USTA national tournament was in Knoxville in the National 65s Clay Courts at Knoxville Racquet Club.

"I won one round and lost to Jack Crawford," Carey said.

Carey's son eventually moved to Knoxville and convinced his father to move to Fox Den in the late 1970s.

Carey's tennis career flourished as a senior. He has been ranked in the top 10 nationally every year starting in the 80s age divisions, has won 31 gold balls for USTA titles (singles and doubles) and 27 silver balls for finalists. He won the 2000 World Singles title for 85s in South Africa and is a three-time world doubles champion.

Carey admires Roddick's willingness to play for his country.

"I'm very proud of the fact that he is devoting himself to Davis Cup," Carey said. "In the old days, I played a lot of tennis with a guy named Gardner Mulloy. Gardner and I are the same age, exactly, 10 days apart.

"(Mulloy) always used to say he would rather play Davis Cup than one of the big tournaments, to play for your country and all that."

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Truly a kerj. First he goes and touches [the lives of] young children, now old people? What's next for this guy, huh? When will he stop...

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