Why such a long delay?
Were the players late or the organizers drop the ball?

That certainly explains the score line, the players took turn to take a nap.

Agreed. It's gotten better over the years.

Bogota is divided in zones, each one of them with a "local" mayor. In this case, The "Teusaquillo" mayor blocked the access to the coliseum, arguing the event lacked a permission. The organizers said he was wrong and acussed the guy of wanting attention. The organizers were the same for The Federer/tsonga event and last year everything was fine This time, gates should have been opened at 4 p.m., the gonzo/giraldo match was scheduled for 6 p.m. and the ladies for 8 p.m. However, The gates were opened finally at 8 p.m. so you can imagine the anger of most people. Actually Pova an Ana were very, very professional. Last year i went to the same venue for the Roger/Tsonga Exho and it was perfect. 15000 souls chanting "Roger, Roger" . Made me feel so proud of my country. This time i wasn't there, thank god, 'coz i'd have been

That was bad.
Kudos to Maria and Ana for being so accommodating.
I am not so sure that players will jump at the chance next year.
They're probably going to ask for re-assurance that event will start on time.

Re: BOGOTA EXO: A.Ivanovic def. M.Sharapova 6-1 1-6 12-10

She's back!!!!11!!!!!1!!!!1!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Did Cronin label Ana as a Top 5 favorite for the AO after the exho ended?

With that said, Maria's tweet was gracious and professional.

No that photo doesn't "capture what happened out there" but no surprise that you would choose that particular photo.



Maria stayed and interacted with and entertained the crowd more than Ana did, actually.
