Just imagine if Nadal came back from his sore back to win the match in 5? T.H.A.T would have been a big big blow to his image because it would have meant it was his throwing-his-opponent-off tactic yet again. As it is people were already commenting about him always taking some sort of injury time-out when he gets under the gun. Presumably to stop, think or revise plan of attack. Whatever. His taking MTOs are a common sight whenever he’s down a set, a point or simply just down. Funny, he hardly does that with Fed. OK, well he did…just a little bit to wrap his palm.
His MTOs are like, me telling you I play the baritone horn. I might or might not play. Just like Nadal…He might or might not have had that back pain.
OF course he didn’t!
It was merely some spasm and he’s off to Argentina. TOld you…the act of Nadal.
Who would’ve thought that, of all people, it will be Stan Wawrinka who emerges as the Australian Open 2014 champion. Did you? I certainly didn’t (expect him to win). I was actually rooting for Delpo but, I should’ve known better as he is one player who’s prone to being injured and all. The other person whom I thought would win it was Nole and he certainly disappoint. I mean, not to take anything away from Stan (he played great!) but still? It is Djokovic we’re talking about and yet, he was beaten…fair and square.
Of course, all those who bought the Friday night tickets to watch the legendary match-up between Federer and Nadal must have been disappointed after an hour or so of play. I would have been if I paid mega bucks on a Friday night anticipating a 5 hour match. Instead, I got solid exchange for about an hour. Everything went downhill after that. Truly very disappointing indeed.
Stan, on the other hand, was a welcome change. He deserved everything that he got. Nadal completely faltered and froze in the end. I felt it was a strategic move by the Feds. Keeping low profile, letting Stan take the glory. Keep the rest guessing and second guessing. Pretty clever I must say. We’ll see how the rest of the year pans out. Can’t wait.
One more sleep and we are on our way to the first Grand Slam of the year. Yes, the very first and are we excited? I am more excited to see the outfits actually…hehehe
I wonder if this will be DelPo’s year. He really deserves a 2nd GS. Also, he’s shly hot and lanky. I think if he was a tad bit shorter, he’ll look even more hot? hotter? hahahha…ok, all these latin americans can honestly do some serious damage to one’s marriage…LOL
Anyway, the main action will come in only at the 2nd week. The first week is usually warm ups for the top players. For the lesser known players, the first week is relatively nerve wrecking. So bad that some even had to check in for oxycontin rehab. No kidding! But, that’s how it is when you play pro tennis. And, that’s how it is when you cannot hack life.
This year, I had quite a fruitful year. I had lots of pressies. OK, actually last year was my most fruitful and I never thought I would top it this year but surprisingly, I did! hehhehe
Let me tell you what I received (with a whole lot of lurvvveee) :
Pandora (surely, nothing can top that!)
Victoria Secret lip gloss
and plenty of chocolates
See what I mean? Lots right? heheheh
Next year, on my wish list will be from the Reeds mikimoto selection
Yes, Fed and his wife will be having their 3rd child. If they are Chinese, I would say that the pregnancy comes in pretty timely as next year is the Year of the Horse. The Horse symbolizes strength, power and is a very hardworking animal. So, the Chinese believes that those who are born in the year of the Horse, will embody all those fine qualities..ssp if you have a son. Maybe the Feds believe in the chinese zodiac philosophy. In fact, I was joking with the hubs that perhaps it will be a good idea to try for another baby next year? A son? Make my MIL jump up with Glee?
Over me dead ovaries.
