Eight is a wonderful number.

Hooray! He did it! May I add that I am extremely proud of Rafa, I was just a little worried there that I was going to be *too* proud.

My favorite parts of the tournament:
1. Low-five, by far.
2. Baghdatis' set point in the tiebreak against Hewitt. Congratulations are due him, btw, for the semis run and the top ten breakthrough.
3. Federer-Ancic.
4. Roche's rubber band-biting in the final.
5. Federer's jacket. Hey, I like it, especially the...

Federer is God. It would be fabulous if he could win against his hardest draw ever without dropping a set. Best match ever today against Ancic.

Baghdatis into the semis, hooray! Of course, I think Hewitt has for a second time failed to lose to the eventual champion, but very happy for Baghdatis. Apparently he had never won an ATP match on grass before this tournament, and he's having another great run at a slam. That was a superb backhand return winner he ripped off Hewitt's first...

First...Fabrice, I didn't know he pulled an injury timeout on you right before you served! Forgive me! I totally support your refusal to shake his hand.

Tommy, great fight. The only unforgivable moment was the first point of the tiebreak when you were standing right in front of a ball in position to make an easy volley, probably a winner, and you left it, thinking it was going long. Coward. One more point in a tiebreak where you ended up with four set points could spell the...

Round 2

Okay, time to arrange a little lobotomy. Rafa Nadal has mental toughness to spare, and transplanting a small amount of that would make a world of difference to the brain of him who shall not be named, but who was nicknamed by a commentator Chernobyl S***n.

Now, Rafa, congratulations for pulling it off, and I'm proud of you, and I'm really looking forward to seeing you play Agassi on Saturday. I will, however, be cheering for Andre. In the first place you have plenty of chances to...
