Look, my journal's working again. Would have liked it last week when everything was happening. Quick recap, then.

(Spamming GM with the Tarpisex was the most fun I've had in a long time.)
(Sasha was incredibly sweet and protective of Marat.)
(I went to bed at 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning and woke up at 3:30 to follow the final action, even without coverage.)
(I was so sure Marat would win the fifth rubber, and I wanted...

Once again I was left without words by Federer. That backhand down the line was utterly gorgeous. He said Nadal warmed it up for him... Pointwise, he now leads Nadal by 3900 points, which is more than the number 1 player has had total at some points.

I was going through the rankings on the ATP site, and I noticed that for the earliest date they give, Jan. 10, 2000, some of the players are ranked virtually the same 7 years later. There are probably some more, but these are the ones that jumped out at me.

Code:
        1-10-00         11-13-06
Haas      11               11
Hewitt    21               20
Hrbaty    23               21
Safin     24               26 (25 Race)
Grosjean  27

Shanghai time zone killing me. If it weren't the last of the year, I wouldn't do it. 3 am last night, and I had so much trouble keeping my eyes open that I simply could not watch the Blake/Nalbandian--I mean had it been Safin, I'd have done it if it killed me, but it wasn't so I went back to sleep. A couple hours asleep, a couple awake, a couple asleep, a couple awake...didn't feel properly awake until this evening. At least the final will be ~ midnight (T-1 hr 45), so I should be able to just to...

Roger/Rafa tomorrow! The quality of the match will most likely suck, but Roger needs to start evening out that head-to-head. And I am definitely getting up at 3 am for it. Will probably stay up for Blake/Nalbandian too.

Roger wins at life, btw: 15-0 in TMC RR.
