I kid, of course. One thing all pro sports players understand and sympathize with is a defeat like Murray suffered yesterday. Particularly Federer, as he’s fresh off one of his own. They should meet up for a little commiserating party, although that sounds terribly sad, and neither of them seems particularly inclined. Too stoic to participate in a pity session. In the best way. I think the way both of them handled their defeats was graceful, and that’s behavior you

Stupid Robredo crushed my…Federer’s dreams of an 18th grand slam title. For that, he can go and lose in the next round. I wished him nothing but good things until he beat Federer. No, there is no need to point out my hypocrisy and say that I obviously did not wish good things for him as I wanted Federer to beat him. I’m not trying to hear that. As I was saying, I wished nothing but good things for Robredo

Hey Schiavone, don’t feel bad. I’m certain you had no idea that the warm up attire for last night’s match was quite so formal. I hope that Serena’s next opponents will take note so that they won’t have to face the same embarrassment you no doubt faced as you looked across the net and witnessed Serena going through her warm-up routine while dressed in a formal jacket. THANK YOU FOR THE PICTURE, USA TODAY!! OK, I can’t even with that

The semifinals for both women and men were very exciting, but the finals were anticlimactic. I’m ok with Murray winning, I guess, if only to give the home crowd what they’ve been waiting for patiently for so long. If we’re honest, I think we have to give a fair amount of the credit to a fantastic semifinal performance from del Potro who really weakened Djokovic for the final. I wanted desperately to see del Potro make it to the final though

My family and I wasted a good ten minutes watching a dude named Joey Chestnut slam down 69 nasty-ass hot dogs dripped in water because apparently this is a thing. And apparently America watches this. I know we certainly did. And I’m aghast by a couple of things. He has a coach. HE HAS A COACH, PEOPLE. What does this “coach” do? I’m pretty sure I could coach someone for this event. Dude? Eat. There. I’ve coached you. Wait, that’s

So I already disliked Bartoli, probably unfairly, but after she ended Sloane’s run, you can bet I am actively rooting against her regardless of her opponent in this and all future tournaments. Come on Flipkens!! Truthfully, I just don’t like her style of play. I really liked Seles, but it wasn’t because of her two-hand forehand and backhand. I liked her style of play and her sportsmanship. I cannot say the same for Bartoli. And I have to wonder why
