It is so hard to be a tennis fan now!

I am sad that Amelie lost
sad that Clijster did not play
sad that Justine could not defend the title healthy
happy that Jenn got a great win
sad that Venus lost
happy for Myskina
Happy for Elena (and her mom, who I have met--lovely lady).
Happy for Paola (sad for Maria; sort of)
I will be sad for any one of the remaining three SF who will not win after some great runs.

man is it ever hard to be a tennis fan these days.

I know what you mean. I feel like I'm on a Paola sugar high, what with my fave Serena losing, Paola came as an unexpected surprise. It felt good being genuinely happy for another player and in a way going out of my own comfort fandom zone. The one positive of the day even with a mix match in results is that as a fan I came away with a sense of excitement and renewal of the game that I probably wouldn't have had if my fave had stayed in and maybe won it all.
