Report from the US Open

08-27-2005, 08:45 AM
Check out my blog for my report from Thurs. and Fri. qualies, including multiple French player sightings, watching all of the top 5 guys practice, a crazed fan getting in Julien Benneteau's head in a bizarre recall of Guga's match with Tursunov in '03, and my meetings with infamous MTF members. And all of this was free...

Thank you for the reports! :worship: Awesome! ;)
What was Gasquet telling to his mom? :lol:
Good to know that Novak Djokovik looked in shape. And Guga too! :D

Thanks for the report.....

Dick Norman topless :scared: :crying2:

How did Murray's injury look against Lapentti? Was he struggling with his shoulder?

Thanks so much for your detailed reports - I wish I could have been there for the Guga/Calleri practice.

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed it. I don't speak French, all I know is Richard started his conversation with "Mama" and went from there, that is how I know he called his mom...

Dick Norman :hearts: yeah he is not the type that should go shirtless.

Honestly I didn't really know about the injury to Murray till after, he wasnt like sitting there rubbing his shoulder or anything. His form did drop from the first to the second set, which may have partly been due to the shoulder bothering him...was this from the car crash he was in?

If the photos are too big, use a resizer to save them at lower quality. Well, and resize them, of course. But if they are really high quality you have to make them quite small for them to fit. So if you lower the quality on the photo, you can keep them a decent size and still post them... you also can't notice that you lowered the quality, unless you go to the extremes :p

I don't know how you do this with most programs, but I use something called infranview and just save most photos at "90%", and that solves most problems after cropping.

09-06-2005, 05:28 PM
Okay, I didn't think of lowering the quality. I'm gonna try that out tonight, then, I'll download the irfranview program and use that.

It's easy enough to use. If you have any more questions about it, I can field them, but I doubt you will :p
