Nadal vs Djokovic match tomorrow - alarm will be set and coffee maker programmed before I go to bed tonight.
HOPEFULLY . . . . Tropical Storm Andrea won't interfere with my viewing plans and knock out my satellite feed!
Four plus hours for Nadal and Djokovic today - with about an hour of that being just the 5th set. Love 'em both, but I'm totally stoked for the outcome.
As long as I have been watching tennis - and my first love was Jimmy Connors - I had totally forgotten about that touching the net thing. How long as it been since they actually had to enforce that?!?!?!
Woo hoo! Found FO live on NBC. Saw highlights from Nadal match am watching Tsonga-Ferrer (and hoping not to get caught at work!)
Looks like Spain will be well-represented at the French Open finale this year. Still wrapping my head around Tsonga losing to Ferrer.
I cannot foresee a situation where Rafa will NOT have trophy number eight on the shelf after Sunday's match.
Oh yeah! This is what I'm talking about. History was made today!!!
I'm so pleased for Rafa. I don't dislike Federer or Djokovich, but I always find myself pulling for Nadal. Maybe it's because he appears so real and appreciative of the place he's made for himself. He doesn't present himself with an over-inflated ego. If it's phony, then he's got a place for himself as an actor when he retires from tennis.
I am thrilled that Rafa won today! 8 FO! Great job. I agree, he seems like a real nice guy. Very family oriented, not off jet setting and hanging out at the clubs. He has kept the same staff around him and I remember he lived at home for the longest time.
