All of the big guns got through today except Henman, who lost to Luis Horna, not a huge surprise since the Peruvian likes the dirt and plays like a poor man’s Gonzales. Today was a good day for the Americans; no losses. (Yeah but how many played? 2? )
Andy should do well tomorrow, as it is expected to reach a high of 92 degrees.
This is a big advantage for him when the court speeds up.
My top three picks are 9-0 in sets, which bodes well for their chances to reach the semis.
The Gilbert families, minus Z-man, are all flying from CA to Paris. It will be Zoe’s first trip across the pond. Hopefully Tatiana will win tomorrow so that they can see her play later in the week. (oh god does he really call his son Z-man?????? Poor guy And, does he have multiple famILIES? )
I used to think that coaching and playing on the tour was difficult, but working all day until 1:00 a.m. is a lot harder. The good thing is that I can’t lose a match in the booth.
