I'm watching John on TC. I'm sure this match is not live, but nevertheless.

Heard the announcers in the Lopez Kubot match natter on about time between points. Lopez got a dubious time violation, and that led to a long long discussion about the new rule and having a shot clock. So you have to be "in the service motion" for the clock to stop. What does that mean? Well, apparently, you can throw the ball and catch it and you will be in the service motion and not have the clock running, but if you bounce the ball and lose the ball as occasionally happens, that will not stop the clock.

So, let's say you have a player like Enqvist who never bounced the ball but just went up and down with his arms a couple of times before he served the ball. Is he always in the service motion as soon as he steps to the line? If you throw up the ball and catch it, does the clock start over or is there some way to have a carry over?

Why is it better to serve fast? That's always my question. Stefie Graf serves so fast that one might argue she rushed her opponents as a deliberate tactic. These announcers claimed that Nole and Rafa's match at the AO would have been ONE HOUR shorter if they had both observed the time limits. Considering that at best (or worst) on the average they each went over by a couple seconds on each point, would that really add up to one hour?

Also, I think if they are going to be super strict on the time limit, they should give 30 seconds between points.

Are you talking about my beloved Fred Stolle?

They showed a non-USA match earlier today.

And I was posting from my laptop actually. Now from phone, just in case I misspell something.

Application To Russia submitted if they accept m dates I will be there from 4th July to 31st. And I chose the following departments by order of preference: Emergency Medicine, Gynaecology/Obstretrics, Internal Medicine (General), Gastroenterology.

I couldn't choose psychiatry because I don't speak the language.

Sorry about your beloved Fred Stolle. But yes, I don't like that kind of voice.

They showed another match? I don't know. Must check the schedule more closely. Anyway, I have to leave soon for a NY dinner in Jr.'s BFF's home. We usually had Christmas dinner but they were in Austin.

A daughter of a work friend of mine chose emergency medicine because she could set her own hours and have plenty time off to do other things.

Edit: Lee, you were right! I thought that match they showed was Hopman, but it was Doha. Sorry. There is a whole in my brain.

^ Good luck with your exam

Watched Nole for the first time today, he did look a bit rusty today against Tomic, but Bernard showed some great stuff, he deserved the win fully. The doubles match was very entertaining, the lot of them were having fun out there which is always good to see.

Tomic is the best among the youngsters with rooms to improve. But Nole looked lethargic to me. He was not moving well and ended up pushed around by Tomic. And his timing is quite off. I watched his single match only as it started at 2:35am my time.
