Blondizgd saidYou should be glad anyone responds to your posts.
Now tell me - is Serena still in the competition?
So let's see now - how many early exists have we had:
It was tough to be in the stands and watch her play so badly today. Your earlier comment about her "deficiency" may be right; something sure is. No question, though, that Cornet played her best, and good for her. But if Serena had played even mediocre instead of bad, Cornet would be out, and we'd be looking forward to another Serena match next week.
On other fronts, both Rafa and Novak struggled but then kicked butt, yet Rog just plain kicked butt. WTH is going on over here?
Hope you guys are enjoying the drama. Major upsets live can be fun.
Fed still has a lot of game in him and he looked great today. I look forward to him getting some revenge back on Robredo for that US Open fluke win.
Nadal recovered nicely. I think were headed for an actually very competitive Nadal/Federer Semi.
I see the big 4 getting through and Djoker>Murray in the the other Semi. (assuming there is no shoulder issue from here on out)
Can't disagree with enjoying the exciting tennis, but when you see a truly great player faltering, it's more sad than exciting. Again, if Serena had been on her best game or even a mediocre game, and if Cornet had played gangbusters at that level and out-played her, THAT would have been excitement and worthy.
Federer definitely has a lot of game in him, but not at the level of winning grand slams. Won't mind the Novak-Murray match at all, if it comes to be, which we agree likely will. THAT will be tennis. Novak says his shoulder is fine; but we'll see. If he only HAD one shoulder, he would likely still beat that pussy Murray, last year's flash in the pan notwithstanding!
