    Fan, I have a sick feeling that JC might not make it. 3rd set and JC is still trailing 3-5.

    I'm dissapointed, JC lost to that guy! Not only that but my favorite tennis player, Serena Williams, is not playing that well! Her scoreline so far is 4-6, 6-2. I hope she can make it, come on Serena!

    Serena finally won her match 4-6, 6-2, 6-4. I saw that match, it was great to watch and the level of tennis was high. I don't know why but the french crowd were booing Serena like crazy, even the commentator's were saying that's just stupid and rude. The french crowd also booed Jennifer Capriati during her last match.

    I also watch the women's and want Serena to win.

    My dermatologist has a daughter who is representing the USA in the French Open, Julie Ditty. Too cool!

    That's cool Texi.


    The level of support in this grandslam is alike a Davis Cup match. Certain times, it borders on annoyance when people are screaming and booing when it's not necessary.

    Now the men's and women's defending champions are out of the competition.

    That was also hurting the defending champion, JC Ferrero. He only decided to play on Monday. I'm still pretty shocked at the loss, albiet it was expected.

    There are so many injuries going around. Andy, Juan Carlos and Apparently Guillermo Coria all have some injury while on the womens tour, Serena, Justine, Venus, Amelie, Kim and Jennifer have all spent more than a few months off this year through injury!

    Anyway, Lindsay Davenport, Carlos Moya, Guillermo and Amelie are all through to the fourth round. Did anyone see Marat Safin's match yesterday? He got penalized for dropping his shorts after a long point!

    Thought I would post my thoughts in here. Though I can never find when Tennis is on, I check on their website with the results. I basically only watch Womens because it is quicker and more interesting. I cheer more for the underdogs. I like Amelie Mauresmo, Chandra Rubin(where is she?), Paola Suarez, Virginia Ruano Pascual (the last two are my favorite doubles team), and Ai Sugiyama.
