To be honest, I am quite disappointed with the recently concluded French Open. WIth that I am referring to both the Men’s and Women’s Finals. I felt that the quality of play was more worthy of a QuarterFinal match-up. I would have hated paying so much yet not getting back as much in terms of the match quality. The Semis between Djokovic and Nadal should’ve been the Finals really.
But…it was still a good tournament nevertheless. Could’ve been better…Really could have.
Also, I was disappointed that Djoko lost to Nadal. I mean, he was really close to beating him. I mean, I think of all players, Djoko is the only one who has it in him to beat Nadal. Not even Fed has a fighting chance. Murray is well…not even in contention here la. The top 3 comprising of Nadal, Fed and Djoko are still the formidable force.
Then again, all is not lost. We still have one more big tourney, in the name of Wimbey, to feast our eyes one more time (that is, if you didn’t get enough of tennis with RG). I simply love the summer months of May and June. Simply marvelous. Would have been better if I was living in Europe. hehehhe…but, that is not to happen of course.
So…onward to Wimbledon! The place where everybody wants to win.
You know, it’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog…or, any blog. I’ve just been so so busy. Just attending to my daughter’s one and a million activities is good enough to keep this ol lady company.
My friend asked me the other day if I was following Roland Garros. Of course I am! Do you even need to ask? hahahha…No seriously, I have been following. I just don’t sit through every single match but selecting as i go along because, as you know, not all matches are fun to watch. Especially on clay. Matches can be horribly boring tedious and a serious waste of time.
I did catch the Tsonga/Fed match though. Who didn’t? But, I was disappointed. Not because Federer lost but because there wasn’t much from him adnd you could tell he wasn’t trying as hard as he could. Saving for Wimbledon I believe.
I hope for more on Friday with Nole and Rafa. They are the best at the moment.
Wanna place bets on who will lift the trophy? buying silver or gold?
With the recently concluded Rome tennis masters, Rafa again shut everyone up about his clay crown. I mean, I know, we all know that he was and will always be the Ruler of Dirt but when he took 7 months off for his ‘injury’, we were kind of skeptical on whether he’d be playing like his old self again.
Well, last week was the answer wasn’t it? He completely outplayed Federer. Although some say that the GOAT gave him the match but I kinda doubt that. I am sure Fed would have wanted to scare him just a little before RG.
Speaking of RG, I cannot believe that I am still not going to RG. What’s up with that? Must grill ze hubby.
I am secretly hoping that on my 40th birthday, I’d get center court tix at RG instead of some cheap novation launchpad. So, pray for me ok?
And…the winner is….none other than Djokovic. I was hoping Nadal will whop Nole’s ass on clay. But, I guess not eh. With Rafa playing with so much caution, all Djokovic had to do was capitalize on that. Nadal wasn’t running as much as he used to. The knees? I would think so. It will not do Nadal any favours by hurting them some more. He could very well find himself on crutches for the rest of his life.
Also, the big question : Where was Federer when all of this was happnening? He must be pretty pleased at being catapoulted back to No.2 without having to lift his racquet. Must be ecstatic eh?
Whatever it is, I can say it with certainty that Fed and Nadal will be out there hunting Nole down. Just mark my words! *evil grin*
I am absolutely in love with this season’s The Voice. Gone are 2 judges which I feel weren’t as good. Usher and Shakira brings in a little more substance to the show. While I should be looking at new kitchen appliance packages for my really old kitchen, instead, I spent 4 hours watching The Voice. OK..maybe not 4 (was 3 hours, I think). Still…I thought it was awesome and I can’t wait for the battle rounds.I think American Idol is going to go bankrupt. hehhehe..
Exhausting day today. I swear, I am too old for busy weekends. Trust me. I am WAY too old.
