I know better than to stand up when Arnaud's playing, though.

I watched some of her match up close, then I sat up high in court 4 for Arnaud-Juanqui and was able to look over at her match from there (she was on court 6)

Court 4 is one of my favourites because of all the other courts you can look over at.

That is why I hate having to set my VCR to record while I'm at work, I always wind up with a block of some useless program or match in the middle of good matches on my tapes...

Why they don't check their facts and transform those that they think could make sell more paper when modified even if it's illegal and immoral?
I hate them! And i get angry when i hear the commentators pronouce a name wrong or stupid things like that!... I won't anymore...
Word!
In the US, they always make him sound like something he's not. Like he's an awful spoiled kid who can't play or whatever. They dramatize everything, from his reputation in France to the incident during the USO last year (e.g. that NY Times article). The saddest thing is, they're supposed to be professionals and they don't have a friggin' clue what they're talking about.

I took some close up pictures of Eric while Richard was practicing he looked kinda angry...it is taking me a while to crop my pictures down so I can post them, though. I've never tried to post pics online before.

Re: ~*~ Hardcourt Season: US Open ~*~

I am a bit sad seeing he was close to win this match (and I couldn't watch it ) but anyway he did a great tournament. I hope he will recover well from his injury and come back stronger for the indoor season. He can be confident for the future. He showed great mental and physical progresses. He can be proud of him!
Congrats Richard !!!
