Sorry for the lack of postings—I've been celebrating the TTA? birthday! : )
But seriously, I, like millions of others, have been totally engrossed in the Big W, and today offered up some great results. How about that Tommy Haas? He's actually had a dominant grass-court season this year after having never really done too much on it in his career. I thought Marin Cilic was going to come through in that quarter, but Haas got him early on in one of the matches of the tournament.
It doesn't get any easier for Tommy Boy, seeing as he only has to play THE man, Roger Federer next in the semis. Fed got through Ivo Karlovic, who had been blasting dudes off the court, easily enough. He and Haas should have a decent match next.
But the match I've been waiting for all tournament should overshadow theirs when Andys Murray and Roddick go at it. They've both gone through some battles to get to this point: Murray in that classic against Stan Wawrinka in the fourth round and Roddick's five-setter against Lleyton Hewitt today. Anyway, I'm pulling for Andy to win! Seriously, though, whichever one did come through would make for a great story and I'm just hoping for an entertaining match (but if Roddick were to win, I wouldn't think it was the worst thing in the world)!
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.
