So this doubles combo of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic? Not impressing me one bit so far.

The Canadian kids are awesome.

So apparently, all I need to do is bitch a little and they start playing a little better ...

Novak just cannot volley for the life of him. What the fuck? :facepalm:

Let us know what you're wearing so that we can try to spot you on TV.

We are going tomorrow evening ... planning on wearing red and yellow for Spain.

I've been watching the US open fairly closely. Nadal's serve looks very impressive, but his overall game gets changed so much with this surface and his need to not wear down his body. But I'd say as he moves along he's fine tuning his approach.

His match last night was so much fun to watch for an early round match. The guy really wants this major. And even though he has to work out how to play without extending each point, and be able to swing through on the backhand without letting the lighter balls fly away on him, he's still impossible to break. Down 5-1 in a tiebreak and then he takes the next 6 points. Yowch.

that 5-1 comeback was something special, even against a pretty weak rival. He abosolutely destroyed him.

Wozniacki is delicious. I suddenly noticed that she looks like she could be Nadal's twin sister. Now I can't get that out of my head. It can't be unseen.

HAHA. nice work LX.

anyone see that youtube video of the fight that broke out in the stands between some old couple and a 20something dude? I'd post it, but i can't access youtube. Anyway, it was pretty awkward and made me uncomfortable.
