A pusher. Clearly he saw nothing of the match or he is delusional.

For me, Raonic did not crack his forehand as he did playing against Fish or whoever else it was he played (it's all a blur now) But, Harrison was death on those second serves even when they came in at 117 or thereabouts. It was startling. Amazing what a pusher can achieve. I like it that Harrison is so fast. I love those speedsters. But, they were saying he is 6'1" I find that hard to believe. He looks smaller to me. I think the game is going toward the big men, and I think someone like Ryan will have to work very hard indeed to get to the top. But, both have a lot ahead of them. I hope they both do well.
Gu I mostly don't pay attention to in GM. Harrison really played well yesterday at the net but he also made a lot of thoughtless approaches. His most impressive part was ROS like you said. I think he will find it hard to put it all together on a consistent basis. Raonic has and probably will have it easier if the serve continues to work for him plus he has the better head it seems like. But who knows It was a fun and high quality match especially in the first set.

Roddick had some good things to say

Quote:
Q. Did you have a chance to see the Harrison/Raonic match? Any sort of response on the match?
ANDY RODDICK: That third set was a microcosm of exciting things to come from both of them. I was really proud of Ryan. We've talked a lot the last couple of weeks about him kind of staying the course and not losing his composure too much. I hope he learns that lesson quicker than I did.
He certainly did today. The kid is like a sponge. You see a lot of the stuff that we've been talking about, and he's doing it. We talked about it three days ago. That's a good thing.
The other thing, with Raonic, kid's down two breaks, he brings it back and comes within a point of bringing it back. That's a big thing. More impressive is he loses 6-4 in the third, he's still down there getting a massage, doing the proper things regardless of if he lost.
I noticed that. I thought that was pretty impressive. So I liked the match. I like their attitudes and how they go about their business better.

Metis, I suggest that we name the association Soccer Haters United. (SHU) As short for shoo or shut up. Either will do. PLUS the word "soccer" infuriates them.

Oh, and as I'm about to put Skippy peanut butter on my pathetic piece of rye toast, I see that Skippy has done a recall for salmonella.

Sweet. Perfect.

Yeah right, I believe you.

I am so tired. So very tired. I almost cried when I saw the schedule. Should I forego seeing DelPo this morning and save myself for tonight? Also, I have to take warm clothing with me and if I don't get there early, the trudge to my car to get the warm things will be long, long, long.
Go watch Del Potro, then have lunch, then take a nap in your car, then Malisse doubles, then Rafito and RogiGOAT.
Quote:
And that stupid Paul Hanley had to call for the trainer and that took HOURS. And then he played just the same.
I see. That's why they lost. Lucky one Rafa.

Good thing you didn't see it after eating it.

Time for a visit to that breakfast place with the long menu.

Yeah right, I believe you.
I was trying to spare you, but the first reaction was "What?" as in "I must have misunderstood what you said." and then when I explained I had a friend (yeah, I stretched things a bit there) who thought he was adorable and worthy, she looked at me as if I were crazy, and said "Really?" And then she said she didn't think so.

I mean he's got a doofus quality that i can appreciate, and, of course, personality trumps looks, but just on a purely physical level, I looked and looked for something. Didn't find it.

That's like saying take a nap in an oven! Think how hot a car is that is parked out in 90 degree heat.

Uh He had the treatment after he lost the first set and then he won the second -- so, no.

Football brainwashes people and leads to a distorted view of life and reality:
