Well I can't say I'm sorry Inter lost TBH But I feel your pain on Roma. I was watching extra time in that match and the penalties and I have to say they didn't deserve to lose I didn't see Lyon's game but it was Barcelona they were playing right? There's no disgrace there. Barca are a good side

What I mean by Ronaldo is one match I was watching,Ronaldo was fouled by someone and he was on the ground and he kicked him on his ankle! It was a cheap thing to do and he got away with it! I was turned off for the whole match

I'd love to sit here as a Man U fan and defend Ronaldo but the truth is I can't. His play acting sometimes is an absolute disgrace and makes me really angry. Myself and my brother and father often wonder how the coaches at Man U and Ferguson haven't hauled him up by the scruff of the neck and told him to cop himself on. He has no-one to blame but himself when he is genuinely fouled but referees book him for diving. Its a case of the boy cried wolf. It's such a shame he's like this because he's a class player and this side of his game is letting him down

COME ON UNITED!!!
I am a supporter of Liverpool too, while my sister and one of my uncle support ManU. My father supports Arsenal while my other uncle supports Chelsea. The atmosphere was very weird when we watch these four teams in action together, and Wednesday matches by far are the worst, cos the matches usually starts at around 2:30am here and I have to wake each and everyone up to watch the match. They would tease/grumble/yell/swear/repeat the scores (depending on the result of the match0 at me until they get to work. According to the others in the family, it was a torture seeing us watching matches together, we could argue over anything

Yeah I feel the exact same when I go and see football live. They do so much more than they appear to do if you're just watching it on television. A LOT of people have commented on how you can't appreciate how hard they hit the ball until you see it live. That's really awesome. Yeah it's great seeing your favourites first hand. I've seen Cristiano Ronaldo play twice and both times I've been like 'Oh my God!!! Ronaldo is in front of me' and David Beckham too so I can totally appreciate where you're coming from!!! I can't wait to go to a tennis match!

Oh I bet that's fun!!! Chelsea, Liverpool, Man U and Arsenal all in the one house!!! One of my brothers in law supports Chelsea and another supports Liverpool so as you can imagine football discussions can get quite heated in my house Still, we don't take it too far though. Just a little light piss taking. We've yet to have a MAJOR argument over footie. We all respect who the other supports.

I have the same feeling even though I was only watching an exhibition match. I was watching JohnnyMac/Borg and Fed/Blake at that time. My first thought was: the ball was fast. People keep saying on tv, everything was flatten so as to squeeze into the tv and the ball looks very slow, I didn't believe that until I saw that in person. Blake was awesome even in exhibition matches. I am sure he would be a lot more impressive in the DC tie. You are so lucky

That was the time when I enjoyed watching football most. We never have any major argument, the most heated argument is always over whether David Beckhamis hot or not- and still is. My sister is crazy over him and keeps on talking about him nonstop. It can get quite annoying I have no personal dislike over Dave, if there's any, it's all the fault of my sister. I dun see my uncles as often now, but every time I saw them, they greet me by saying "liverpool sucks"

I think I was the only female football fan ever to NOT find Beckham attractive ... and I still don't! As far as I'm concerned I'm not a fan girl when it comes to football. I take my football INCREDIBLY seriously. I can honestly say I've never fancied a footballer. I watch it to enjoy the football and not the players' legs

Me neither- but probably because I am a Liverpool fans
I only watched football occasionally now because they are now showed on a different pay TV channel than tennis, they used to be shown on the same channel.
I can only watch football in a bar with my friends or go over to my uncle's house, and I have to say, I dun recognized 70% of the players in the Premier League. But I still enjoy watching the match, even though I can't tell who is who. Many people find this strange.

He said in the WLT interview he won't play events the week before a Slam or a Masters Series like he did last year in Casa and Indy, but I see Indianapolis is at a different time now in the calendar, so maybe he will play it.
(But I wish he won't since it's the same week as Hamburg.)

I hope you'll get the "glare of doom" one day to make your G. Simon experience complete! It's part of the fun.

You've got some great stories from your weekend and you had great seats! When I'm watching tennis at home I'm jumping up and down and yelling, but when I'm at the tennis I'm very self-conscious and subdued, which helps when watching a favourite in a tight match because I don't stress out as much. I made a sign for Andy Roddick for this years AO and was holding that up, luckily I had Andy fans around me, so I didn't feel uncomfortable about it. I'm the kind of person who doesn't like to be noticed so I have to get over that to go crazy.

Do you live in the Indy area and that's your local tournament? Have you been to the US Open? I'm going over to the US Open this year, booked my accommodation today

I just read on teletext that Roger has announced Mirka is pregnant. A baby Roger on the way. I'm not the biggest Federer fan but good luck to him and Mirka
