Hmmm. If we can get Marat to the third round *crosses fingers* and then we can get him throooouuuugh the third round *crosses toes* we may be good to go. Please don't let anything go wrong!

So, Marat and Roger meet again. I've decided to cheer for Marat, since it's an exhibition. I want Roger to do the Grand Slam this year, so I will be cheering for him at the AO. Marat looked in better form yesterday, but Nalbandian withdrew with an injury, so that must have helped. Still suspect Roger will win.

Middle of the night ramblings

Posted 01-06-2007 at 12:55 PM by atheneglaukopis
Decided to stay up all night just because I've been sleeping in too late and I have an 11 am class Monday and possibly a friend coming to visit Sunday, and you know it's bad when an 11 am class is devastatingly early.

Quote:
"Last year he lost (to Rafael Nadal) in the semifinals and this year he lost to the same player in the final. So we can see a definite improvement in his game," Roche noted.
I'm sorry, but I just don't see the logic. He lost to the same player. I see no reason to believe he wouldn't have lost in the semis to him this year had they played then. What this shows me is that Nadal improved between...

Vacation

Vacation is finally getting to see Federer vs. Suzuki at Tokyo, which Mediazone didn't have live because they stopped doing live coverage partway through the year, and finally getting to read Sir Gawain in Middle English because it dawned on me partway through another text in Middle English that now I can read Middle English.

Wow, some excellent net play on both sides.
