Great tennis today - 1st semi final went incredibly long..So good to see no one dropped to the ground like they were shot, and yet suddenly popped up and continued to play on....Nice to see athletes that use their feet, hands and brains...Nadal and Djokovic are supreme Athletes plying at an incredibly high level that should be appreciated..

I'm not a huge fan of tennis since I pretty much suck at it (unless you count launching home runs out of the seating area) but it is truly a refined sport that is soooooo much more interesting than soccer. And, the chicks that play tennis are super hawt!

Gabriela Sabatini comes to mind first and foremost:





Buck Henry is a bad influence.

That's enough cleavage to cast a shadow over parts of Cleveland..I lost my focus and forgot what the thread was about..Both men's semifinals were nail biters that went 5 sets, and beyond..I was pulling for Nadal, but it was one heckuva match that could have gone either way..

The level of tennis that is being played now is at the highest its every been. Federer possibly the greatest athlete of our era. Hes had his up and down and it was painful watching him not play at his level a few years back but he's still somehow able to be a dominate force even in his decline from peak.


This is one of those sports that I find myself watching womens tennis more. Sometimes when I watch womens tennis, I just close my eyes and turn up the volume.
