Re: Zoltan83 vs. MisterQ: a.k.a. Battle of the 10-point Scrabble Letters

Z and Q met again on the court today. Expectations were high after Wednesday's epic contest, and the scalpers were out in full force providing overpriced tickets to the more rabid fans. The weather was almost as hot as the Australian Open, give or take 30 degrees. As the players took their positions for the opening ball, they knew that the noonday sun was as much their opponent as the man across the net.

Having foregone his 5-hour walking warm-up, Z exploded out of the gates. The serve was on fire! And on top of that, he was closing in behind all his first serves. His split step was electric, his volleys were high-voltage! Of course Q was shocked! He knew he was in for a long day of short points. Z holds at love, 1-0.

Q, modeling his approach after the great Ivan Lendl for some random and pointless reason, decided to ease into form rather than going for broke right away. The sun was in his eyes as he served and he wished he had worn his welding glasses to the match. Q's first serve traveled roughly 20 miles per hour. Z had time to tie his right shoelace and adjust his vibration dampener before the ball got over the net. Of course, Z pounced, and Q lost serve at 15.

This early break of serve did not bode well for Q. Nor did Z's subsequent easy hold put Q in a particularly cheery frame of mind. Serving at 0-3, 30-30, the first four-letter word escaped Q's lips. There would be more to come, even though he did hold after fighting off a break point with aggressive play from well inside the baseline.

When Z held serve again for 4-1, Q's muttering increased. It was something like: "God%&* $&%*$ %&$^#!" Q even threw his racquet once. He threw it really gently and daintily, however, as only one without the funds to buy another racquet can! Q did not, however, spit at his opponent, punch him in the locker room, take a 20-minute pouting break, or call any of the officials an "abortion." For this, the press lauded Q for his increased maturity and restraint from his early rebel years. They branded him a model citizen of the game, an ambassador for all that was good about the sport. Move over Arthur Ashe!

Q managed to hold to take the set to 2-4. Q made a spectacular volley off of a low blistering backhand drive-down-the-line by Z. The volley flew crosscourt and landed two inches inside the baseline. This one was channeled from even further than Mars, perhaps Pluto or Neptune! I will not go so far as to say that it was channeled from Uranus. That would just be a bad idea. The crowd went wild on this point! After all, they were cheering for the aging legend. No one wanted to see another young Belgian phenom come up and dominate the game.

Z held again. The placement of his serves was stellar! Q thought he was anticipating pretty well, but he still couldn't handle them, pushing them long or wide. 5-2. Then Q managed to hold to bring the game to 5-3. He was doing this solely with variety on the serve. Z began to get a bit frustrated as he dumped several of Q's slower serves into the net, expecting something with more pace. His frustration was short-lived, however, because he held easily to win the set, 6-3. Q had been unable to get that early break back.

Q and Z then embarked on a second set. The quality was higher here, and there were some fantastic exchanges at the net. But just when it looked like they might be able to forge another classic duel, they got kicked off the court by some uppity kids. Those kids sucked though. You could tell from their warm-up. That was encouraging. The score stood with Q leading 3-2 on serve in the second. This journalist could describe the points of the second set in detail, but in fact he would much rather stop writing this tedious account and prepare a chicken sandwich. With cheese, and possibly a condiment of some kind. What a luxurious life the tennis elite lead!

Last of the moon-and-volley specialists.

This has honestly been the best thread ever!

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Yet again outstanding

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

I take it you made it back to Montreal safely, Nick... hope you had a fantastic time in NY! Then again if you were hanging out with Matt I'm sure you had a great time

But we need to know - is he as funny in person as he is on here?

Well... *take the paper where Matt wrote every places we went*

DAY 1 : Port authority (because I went to NY in bus), Times Square, Herald Square, Caroll Gardens (Brooklyn), Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Bridge, a little bit of downtown, Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, West Village (Greenwich), Washington Square Park, "Noho", The 1st classic tennis match, drink a belgian beers . Then we ate some Thai food and after the that we went in a mexican bar (drink some strawberry margaritas). After the that, we wanted to go to the Empire States Building for seeing NY during the night. But we changed our mind as there was rain.

DAY 2 : Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center (Upper West Side), Strawberry Fields, Central Park, 5th Ave, Trump Tower, F.A.O. Schwartz, 53nd Street to United Nations, United Nations, 42nd St. (Grand Central Station, Chrysler Building), 5th Ave. NY Public Library, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Little Brazil, Greenwhich village for eating some mexican foods, a small concert and beers at Peculier Pub.

DAY 3 : The 2nd classic match. Then I went to Wall Street, City Hall, New York Stock Exchange, Liberty Plazza Park, Trinity Church, Ground Zero, Chamber of commerce of the state of NY, Staten Island Ferry. And I saw the statue of liberty but I didn't go in the island where she is.

I think that's all.
