your little girl's birthday and you have multi gazillions of dollars and you take her to Outback? Geez Brad
Again Verdasco had his usual let down after a big win. He needs to clean up his errors and become a poor mans Nadal if he has any hope of cracking the top ten. Nadal dropped the first set today but then rolled Stapanek 1 and 1. He has Ferrer in the semis and has crushed him in their last few meetings and I expect nothing less than the same tomorrow. I believe that the Wrecking Ball is going to become the first guy since Lendl to post a 100 wins in one season. If I’m not mistaken Connors is the only other guy to have achieved this amazing feat. This is the kind of record that only a player in his teens or early 20’s can pull off.
The final will either be a rematch of Monte-Carlo or a brawl between Andre and the kid. The only W Coria has over Andre is on clay. Expect to see him going to the drop shot often. After last years poor clay court showing many people thought that they would never see Andre again, he has silenced those critics this week.
Mad props to Henin-Hardenne, who has found her game Justine-time for Roland Garros. She beat Maria easily and should have no trouble winning her second consecutive title this week. Everybody had been keeping her seat warm and now she’s ready to pull her chair up to the table.
Happy Birthday to my little girl Zoe Gilbert who turns eight today! You can bet that the Gilbert’s will be at the Outback Steak House celebrating this evening.
