Well, any thoughts I had about Roger Federer skipping the Olympics to focus on the U.S. Open should be disregarded at this point. I was worried he wouldn't be rested enough to make a decent run. I guess that point's moot now as he just lost to Ivo Karlovic. I guess the odds of all the tiebreaks with Dr. Ivo was going to catch up with him eventually.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
