I played tennis in high school, but I've been unfaithful. I am, however, watching it at work when we have it on the TV. I saw Federer almost get upset by an unranked player, which was admittedly awesome.

The Roddick game where he lost to Kohlshreiber was one of the best matches I ever saw.

I was watching the Hewitt game earlier, and it looked like he was going to lose. Not only was he tired from playing until 4am the previous night but the guy he was playing had a HUGE serve, and was hanging tough.

im a tennis person. kinda upset that Roddick is out already. i really like federer and dont really like nadal. even though you have to respect his game. i would very much like to see djokovic play federer in the finals. tho im not sure that is possible. havent seen the bracket yet. ive only seen a couple games so far this year.

Why so many Serbians in the semi-finals, I wonder...

"i really like federer and dont really like nadal. even though you have to respect his game."

Nadal's knees won't last him past age 26, I predict. His is not the best game style for hard court (destroys the knees) or grass (ball doesn't bounce enough). I prefer people whose actual greatness involves the way they hit the ball. Sprinting and agility are only part of the game.

hahaha Nadal is out! there was much rejoice. shame that the federer vs djokovic will be live in the middle of the night for us living in the states. as big of a federer fan as i am, i really like djokovic as well. he's a great tennis player and does some really funny impressions of the other tennis players.

<sigh> I'm so pathetic. I thought this thread was about ballots.

And then Djokovic takes Federer out in 3...???

Very exciting... I'm pulling for Tsonga, though the Serbian is most likely.

Oh, I love Tsonga. [Smile]

(Australian's love the underdog)

I think he has a chance though - his serve is so powerful, as are his shots.

(We will be away this weekend, with no tv. [Frown] )
