That potentially makes the outcome in Rome that much more important. Right now Nadal probably has a slight edge over Djokovic but if Novak can win in Rome, especially if he defeats Nadal, that should give him a boost heading into Roland Garros. I'm not really a fan of Djokovic but it would be interesting if he managed to capture all four slams and I am always rooting for anyone but Nadal to win there.

I agree. I'm always rooting for Federer anytime anywhere though.

Please don't say the "f" word. I still haven't recovered from last years French Open final, in particular the first set.

They had 7 breaks in the final set?! That's almost WTA-like.

Yep, that definitely was a winnable match for Fed.

It was dissapointing in that the story didn't focus much on the monster and focused on the kids instead. I was under the impression that it was going to focus on the monster. It was still very good though.
Sentimental is the word I would use... Another way of putting it would be glitz to push a message agenda.

So any thoughts on Drive?

Somewhat of an odd post to bump. Did you just see this movie?

I think it was a bit different.

I was pretty surprised to see Nadal lose from up a double break in the 3rd set (5-2) to his pidgeon (13-0).

I am puzzled and intrigued by the last two posts.

There's a bird that flirts with Jimmie, used to be PetraNo1 or something, and now is known as I.Luv.Kvitty

Aww, that's sweet. A Caro fan and a Petra fan coming together? Miracles do happen!

I have to ask, is there any barking involved?
