Oh, that's right! :)

This is interesting:


I don't blame Nadal. It'd be annoying see your main rival's mug all over the place. Well Rafa, the best way to change that is by winning the US Open this year.

But anyway, according to the comment below, it might be a misrepresentation of what Rafa said which wouldn't be surprising since it's the NY Post. I hope he did say it though, a bit of cattiness is always a good thing.

OMG - Princess Rafa!

Sorry, Elena! I tuned in at 3-0 in the final set, and now it's 3-2! I must be a jinx.

And she had 2 match points and is now down 2 - 5 in the tiebreak. Le sigh. :(

I just can't warm up to Stosur :(

me neither, although Elena was hardly charming tonight, cheering all of Sam's untimely UE's.

Sam is through in a 3rd set tiebreak. well, well, well...

BTW, how nice to see the vile Andy Murray go down. Thank you Stan Wawrinka. The longer Murray goes without winning a major that much more pressure will be on him in future events.

Geez....most of my faves have crashed out of the torunament already.

I had to leave halfway through the second set of the Murray-Wawrinka match, when Murray looked in command. He lost. :(

Then (not having cable to watch the night matches), I was following the score of Dementieva-Stosur and finally went to bed when Elena was up 3-0 in the third. And she lost. Boo! I like Sam but was kind of hoped Elena would take the whole tourney. :(

Happy Labor Day from NYC!!!! :cheer2:

Absolutely stunning weather today, perfect for tennis!

Great match-ups today, definitely gonna start off here with Dickie Gasket vs. Monfils!!!

Fish vs. Djok! :40beers:

Bryan Bros finish the afternoon! :biggrinbo

LOVE Monfil's shorts! Black and white checker pattern......would look great with a bright white seersucker shirt and black leather flipflops. ;)

It's kind of funny when Murray loses in a grand slam because the tennis "experts" have as of late always been picking him to win the Australian Open/Wimbledon/US Open.

09-06-2010, 05:26 PM
Monfils takes the first set, Dickie fights to get back on serve in the second!

09-06-2010, 05:35 PM
Oh, Svetlana :wall:

09-06-2010, 05:57 PM
CBS is jinxing Gasquet. He got back into the second set while the news break was on, and as soon as they returned Monfils took it!!! Boo. :(

09-06-2010, 06:03 PM
That net thingamajigee they hang in the middle of the court seems to be getting into Dickie's way today. :(

Cibulkova @ Match Point! :wideeyes: Now at Deuce....

Sveta breaks and they are back on serve.

My attendance this year might prove to be the kiss of death for the dudes I've seen: AndyRoo out, Dickie 2 sets down :wall: Sorry, Djok fans. :shuffle:

09-06-2010, 06:23 PM
Cibulkova takes out Sveta in 2 sets. Wow.

Sigh, saw Sveta live, too.......

Fergus, you big jinx!

09-06-2010, 06:29 PM
Fergus, you big jinx!

I'm going into hiding for next year's tourny, a Cheney-esque "secure location"..... :slinkaway

Hang on a sec, Dickie up a break in the third! A ray of light! :lol:

Scratch that: Monfils now gonna serve for the match.

Monfils wins 5 games in a row and wins MP with an ace!

(((Dickie))) :(

Hang on a sec, Dickie up a break in the third! A ray of light! :lol:
And proceeds to mess it up in a way that only he can. :wall:
