No love for tennis fans here? Hehe, lots of good stuff going on the ATP right now as Nadal is about to be #1. Meanwhile, the women all seem to be injured this summer... not even worth catching til the Olympics.

Yes! Another tennis fan!


Did you watch that Murray-Djokovic match yesterday?

Nah, I missed it. I heard it was a high quality match... I suppose it would be if it went 7-6, 7-6. I'm just glad to see Novak playing well again, and of course Murray. Thought Novak would have a breakout year after winning the AO, but that hasn't happened. Can't wait for the Olympics, and more importantly, the U.S. Open. I usually attend 1 or 2 day sessions at the Open.

I played tennis in high school. I don't follow the professional ranks too much anymore outside of the slams, but I do fancy myself some PAC-10 action on the ticket every once in awhile.

Yes, it was a good match! I thought Novak would break out as well. I'm disappointed. He gets frustrated easily and starts making unforced errors.

Anyone else geeked up about the US Open? For all you Ana fans, she's playing in a few hours. Really excited to see how the men's draw shapes up. If all goes as planned Djokovic and Federer meet in the semis, and the winner takes on Nadal in the final.

Ive been watching off and on since wimbledon 04'. During the federer reign it got kind of bland but now that Nadal has finally usurped the great roger its fun to watch again. Djokovic is also an up and comer but I dont think he has what it takes to hang with the top 2 CONSISTENTLY.

I saw on my local news earlier(probably much delayed), he was down 0-1 and came back to win it 2-1.

US open organization isn't respecting Nadal too much by having him wait for the Federer-Djokovic match to end...

I am so disappointed with Roddick. I mean, I am every year, but this year its just hard to watch. He can never string together enough wins vs tough competitors. He always falters in majors.

He coudn't do it, sorry I couldn't come in before, was busy.

I already thought something was wrong when Nadal said he was already happy for getting to semi-finals, I didn't see him playing to his level, well I suppose that so many tournaments take their toll...
