Final Four


   I finally felt decent enough to come to work today, but ended up missing the second semifinal Down Under. Not happy with the result, but here's hoping Nole gets some major revenge! Less excited about the women's final. Victoria Azarenka is the epitome of everything that's wrong with women's tennis -- the grunting, the choking, the fake injury timeouts (did you SEE that?) -- but every time I root for Li Na she falls apart, a la Kim Clijsters/Lindsay Davenport vs. a Williams throughout the aughts ...

So true. I can't root for her... especially now she's dating something called Redfoo? LMFAO in deed.

Go Li Na. She stepped up her game against Sharapova and she seems like a very likable person. Go get that second slam! 3:30am EST you say... sigh.

I didn't think Li Na had a chance against Sharapova but she was impressive in that match. Gives me hope that she's mentally tough enough to plow through the finals and take out Vika. While I didn't like her that much to begin with the whole Redfoo thing is just disturbing so I totally agree with Peter on that!

I was happy to see Fed's match go to 5 sets. I had hoped he would have pulled it out, but alas, it was not to be. Go Team Nole.
