it is quite an enjoyable match. Monfil's forehand is on. Marat has hit some interesting overheads. (it's the only part of his game which is on)

They are both injured lots and in both cases much of it is self inflicted.

Nice backhand Marat

Safin has hit some spectacular winners in this game, I hope it's a sign of things to come in the next set.

I'm enjoying it.

Monfils doesn't really have an injury, he has a disease. He will most likely grow out of this in time. It's called Osgood-Schlatter disease.. Only about 10% of the time does it carry over into adulthood.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

From a female ( ) perspective, what do you think about the use of these terms?
Hi there again, Manu!

Well this is a rather difficult, if not an *embarrassing* subject for me.
Apparently I am what a lot of folks call a 'Tomboy' - a rather male-like female. I can well recognize a lot of the description - I HAVE a brain for maths & statistics; YES I can read maps pretty well, thankyouverymuch indeed; and NO I never understood the dynamics of 'Girl Friendships' all too well. Fussing about make-up, which Dolce&Gabbana-bag to buy, which Manolo Blanik-shoes??? Goodheavens, please use your brains for a Better Cause, eh.

No wonder 95% of my friends are GUYS. Well at least they understand my taste of music a lot better as well. Speaking about the majority, of course, please don't accuse me of being a fem-hater, because I am not. I just merely wonder why so many girls so easily manage to get themselves stuck in deplorable situations, in stead of enjoying the Party that is Life as they truly should allow themselves.

So in all, I can't really comment on those terms, as they sound like terms used by inhabitants of a different planet to me. Not joking here.

You know what I am? Perfectly expressed by Deep Purple on this particular vid:

Glen I really do think you're missing out. Safin up a break now in the 2nd set after a fab return winner.

And wth is up with Samburger? Can't complain though, I quite like Petzchner.

Querrey is about to go out.

In Safin Monfils I think whoever wins this game might win the match.

And Safin won the game. Some awesome points in there - especially that last backhand volley.

Looks like MonClown is OUT. Good riddance, never liked the guy to be honest.
VAMOS, Marat!
