yeah great job by the scud. anyone who can put 45 aces past a guy like agassi does a great job to me. sad about paradorn though, but he did the impossible (take a set off the a-rod) and if he had taken any of those four break points roddick gifted him in the third set the outcome may have been different. the odd thing was roddick was serving horribly during that period and a couple of games later the exact opposite was happening - paradorn was serving badly and roddick was replying well. unfortunately, roddick took the break while paradorn didn't.

as for the so-called 'russian revolution' in the women's draw, see where that went. i had the odd feeling that it would turn out the way it did because at roland garros everyone was talking about five americans being in the round of 16 and in the end only serena got through. still, it looks like a set of great women's matches to be played today, so no one's quite complaining yet.

Interesting matches today. Philippousis played great against Andre. They didn't show Roddick-Srichaphan on the U.S. network they just talked about the match. Typical. These guys talk too much.

I was so nervous during the Agassi-Philippousis match. No offense to Mark but I wanted Andre to win. Oh, well. I get so nervous watching these matches it's ridiculous. Now I'm going to go be a nervous wreck watching Jennifer and Serena.

I wanted Jennifer to beat Serena. No offense to Serena but Jennifer was definitely the underdog. I get bored with the same people winning all of the Slams.
Damn. Maybe Justine can win another Slam.

I wanted to see Jennifer win too. I thought for the majority of the match she was actually playing better than Serena. Serena made a fair few silly mistakes I thought.

I switched off the tv in the third set. It was more to do with a)I was tired and b)I didn't want to see Serena win again. Hopefully good ol' Justine will change that.

the wimbledon film looks like it's gonna be a fun, hugh grant-esque romantic comedy. can't wait for it to open, even if it does seem like standard romantic comedy fluff.

on radio wimbledon because of the rain andrew mcewan, the producer or something, is talking about the film. they can't film either because of the rain. pat cash is training paul bettany and kirsten dunst for the film!

sorta. crap british player handed wild card, falls in love with american star. guess the plot.

on to the actual tennis, i can't say i'm very happy. serena was just too good for justine today, and poor henman stumbles once again. not too many years left, tim, and i don't quite see jamie delgado or arvind parmar winning wimbledon.

Serena beat Justine.
It'd be cool if Andy won the thing--not because he's American (I don't pull for athletes to win just because they are American) but because he's never won a Slam, or even been to a final, and it sure as heck wouldn't be boring. Plus, I think he's a Slam-title level talent and it's only a matter of time anyway. This looks like it's it.

Sadly, Schalken lost to Federer today. He probably had to much suffering from his foot injury. And Federer in good form is tough to beat. Oh well, at least he reached the QF for a second year in a row. So well done Schalken! You deserve a rest and good luck at the US Open.

As for the ladies: USA - Belgium, 2-0. 'Nuff said.

C ya!

Marty (who did hope Clijsters would have won, but saw her falter in the 2nd set)
