Hi everyone! Weekend finally here! Still have to work but only a few hours each day. Hope to catch up on more tennis. Shockers...rafa nearly ousted, fed ousted. And haas is in the semis in san jose! Looks like the erstwhile pair of Nalby and Nadal are on a collision course for the final. NalFATian will get Rafa this time. (btw, I think NalFATian is a tongue in cheek endearing kind of nickname for a guy we all kinda like here...even his blow up in England last year can't tarnish his image with true tennis aficionados)
Nole and ferrer sat this week out...very smart for them. Murray too.
The WTA is playing true to form ths week. And Serena is no. 1 again!!!
rafa most likely would have lost today had he not dropped doubles lurker.
he needs to bring that knee along slowly now and not try to play 7-8 matches in 4 days.
and the most important thing is keeping his focus for the singles which he did not have in chile.
and its clear that doubles is proving to be a huge liability for him. it is taking away from his singles game which needs major work right now.
i dont know why he does not learn from nole and roger.
