the US Open

well it's grand slam time.

I don't usually watch this one because of time zones, although my week long vacation this year just about coincides with the men's and women's final days so I'll at least be watching that.

Hello,

Saw the first set of Verkerk - Bogomolov last night. It was a close call (tiebreak), but I thought it wouldn't be too difficult for Verkerk. This morning I heard I was wrong. Verkerk won in the 5th set after Bogomolov had to give up.

BTW, I haven't seen the Sampras show/announcement. Another great player leaves the circuit. Luckily he retires on a high (more or less, after his US Open title last year he hasn't played anymore). But on Wimbledon he only lost 1 match between 1994 and 2000 (or so) - from Krajicek in 1996 who went on to win Wimbledon that year. He was really an impressive player.

C ya!

Marty

Hello,

I just saw the match between (Todd) Martin and Martin (Verkerk). Of course I was hoping for the Dutchman to win, but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. It was a fair and even game, but in the end Todd Martin had just that little bit extra: 6-3 6-4 6-7 7-6. You played well Martin, good luck with your next match!

C ya!

Marty



P.S. I have to add that Todd Martin already looks old (even though he's only 34/35 or so)

I haven't watched any of the tennis yet but I hope to see some this weekend, maybe a night match. Pete's baby is cute. I missed that ceremony. Phooey!

He's looked that way for quite a while.

Happy birthday Roddick.

I don't want Lleyton to win either

because he's up against the mighty Paradorn Srichaphan

Come on Paradorn, all of Asia is rooting for you!

I saw Federer play James Blake this morning. Damn, when he's on song that man is unbeatable.

I'd like to see Lleyton win, although he's had a pretty shit year so far. I'm already quite sick of hearing Andy Roddick hyped up beyond belief. As far as many of the commentators are concerned, he's already got this competition sewn up...

Capriati is playing Dementiva now (who would be so much better if she would just improve her SERVE, for the love of god).

At least it was nice to hear John McEnroe state that the 'Next Pete Sampras' is Federer (although doubtful that he'll win as many slams, but he has the talent).

Gee, and here I was thinking Wimbledon was the 'rain' tournament.
