Beefy, I've grown to love you even when you accused me of making clones of myself to make Henin win that top player game thingy :wideeyes:.
Well, in my defense, naming them "Jomena" and "Not Jimena" wasn't a very good stab at remaining incognito. :saint:

psst, maybe not you, and certainly not as many as were in that were in those gymnastics elimination games, but i'm sure that there were some clones in that silly thing

As a big Venus fan I'm fearing a Na Li upset tonight in the QF match.:eek: I'm not so sure the Williams' sisters will be playing each other here.

Henin vs Zheng in the semis. Basically a free pass for Henin to the final.

Hmmm, I'm not so sure about that. Jie Zheng is a very good player. Remember she was a wimbledon semi-finalist 2 years ago and has also made the 4th rd at the French Open. While I'm not picking an upset I do think Zheng has a shot at Henin.

Andy lost? That's actually quite sad. He's been playing well. This was a great opportunity for him.

Murray up two sets and a break on Nadal. Hmm. Not particularly happy about that one.

ETA: Rafa retired? What's wrong with him?

A knee injury - not sure if it's the same issue as last year but it doesn't bode well for him going forwards IMHO!!

Rafa :wuzrobbed

He retired with a knee injury

Marin :cheer: Please beat Andy M. again! :saint:

Oh and if Na Li wins tonight she will become the first Chinese woman to reach top 10. If she loses, Stosur will reach top 10.

Oh Andrew :(

Well, I suppose it was a good thing to grow up in a Mets house. I learned at an early age that watching sporting events might lead to a bit of your soul dying.

Blergh! Rafa and Rodd out in the same night. :mad: Well, Andy did well for a one-armed man. And Rafa ... well, this is pretty much the patchwork of the remainder of his career. Brilliancy sprinkled with mid-match pain and withdrawals and long and short layoffs due to injury. I'll take what I can get, though.

Rooting for Murray now. Might have rooted for Cilic, but he really wouldn't have been in these semis if not for Andy's shoulder disability.

The Williams sisters and Bryan brothers each into their semis. Keep on practicing for your Williams/Bryan v Williams/Bryan London 2012 OGM match, kids!

Can anyone stop Federer or Serena now?

Davydenko is out of form and will probably get slammed tonight, inspite of his good recent record vs Roger. Djokovic is mostly owned by Federer in slams apart from the Aussie 2 years ago. Murray has lost his last 2 meetings with Federer in best of 3 and is less likely to pull it off vs Federer in a best of 5, and Cilic or Tsonga would really be a monstrous surprise.

As for the women Azarenka was slammed by Serena when they last played at Wimbledon. Li Na is too inconsistent to reach a slam final IMO, and Venus hasnt really done this well on rebound ace in a long time and rarely beats Serena these days. The main threat is probably Henin, but she doesnt look that good so far.

It seems almost inevitable what we are in store for now but I guess that is why they play the matches.

Were you married to Plushenko's first wife too? ;)

That first set of Roddick/Cilic was soooo tense, it was actually uncomfortable to watch.

But if my AndyRoo has to boogie, I'm glad that Cilic advanced. Kids got a good game and a level-head.

If Novak wins tonight he's up to #2 in the world which means he will likely blow it again. :P

And if Fed goes out to Davydenko and Novak wins the torney then Novak becomes #1!!!!

I was going to say it anyway, but now that I know the consequences I'll say it louder:

Go Tsonga! :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:
