Nadal is a lot of fun to watch. Is it just me or does he flex his "left" bicep every time he wins a point? He actually puts the racket into his right hand so he can fist pump his left bicep. Why, you ask? His left bicep is huge compared to his right one (being left handed). You would think that having such a variance would offset his balance. I guess not.

In other news: I'm playing in my first club tennis tournatment in a few hours!! I hope I win!!

tennis players often put their racket in their non dominant hand after a point, it gives the muscles in the lower arm a chance to rest. So he may be doing that, then just flexing, which defeats the purpose of resting that arm, but that would explain why he switches.


As for Nadal beating federer on clay, red clay takes great players and turns them into nothing sometimes. I personally hate the Red stuff it messes with my footwork. But Playing tennis on clay is only a worthy metric of performance, on clay.

I love watching tennis, I'm really excited for the tournament! I think Andy's a little hottie, but in reality I'd like Safin to win, although Federer will be tough to beat.

One less threat for Federer. Safin is one of the only 3 players to beat him this year. That's very impressive of Federer. Out of 67 games, he lost only 3.

Safin, he truly does betray his gift with his head, and now this.

federers record on hard court is ridiculous there is no way he's not the clear favorite.

not saying it's my own opinion, but the fact that serena williams' match was delayed a few minutes because her ear-ring broke doesn't quite help with those out there who refuse to take women's sports seriously.

That was a shocker! Roddick didn't play bad though Muller was just on fire. I'm a huge Agassi fan, always have been. I'd love to see him win another major before he's done. Especially the US Open where he is and always will be the fan favorite as long as he keeps playing. Agassi is still a machine at 35 years old but Federer is simply awesome.
