Montreal semis

Yeah, we all pretty much knew Federer would get past Stepanek, but at least he got a test in the first set.

But the match I was waiting for, Nadal/Djokovic, did not disappoint. What a GREAT match! I didn't think it was possible, but Djokovic out-Nadaled...Nadal! Plus, he was able to exploit Nadal's relatively weak serve (for hardcourts), and a break in each set got him the win and a date with Federer tomorrow. Nadal also had 8 break points, and he couldn't convert any of them. That is VERY unusual.

But, this is very good for men's tennis. We need another face in the mix, someone who can step up and threaten the stranglehold that Federer and Nadal have on the rest of the entire men's tour.

just got back in town, time for some major site updating

and i just saw Bhupathi and Vizner won - amazing. 4 and 4 in the final.I'm sure you've heard by now, though.

disappointed to see Bjork/Max team continues to struggle - routine loss to Erlich and Ram. Terrible.

Cincy tomorrow, get pumped.
