Haha, so that is what you guys call yourself these days? Good to know! Oh man, I am SO much better since the last time I've come on here. I've really bulked up and can hit my forehand and backhand so hard and consistently. I plan on serving and volleying to shock my opponents at the qualies.

Wow what...how did she get to the net...? BANG!

But, yeah, I've missed talking to you guys though!

Not those never ending legs i hope

Seriously, when are they going to work out how to host tennis videos online in the USA? Your fans here are impatient for a fix of your game...

And then there was the football match, I actually hoped Denmark would win but no...too bad
Yeah, LeMans was ... it was just so unfair , Tom's night stint was amaze. *curses the scot* ...

As for footie, well, I'd like to start with some Bendtner bashing, but then Leif is gonna come after me again. So .. I shall only say this once: Only one playing among all 16 teams was stupid enough to agree to earn a little extra with some pirate advertising.

Bendtner played really well... We need a better midfield soonest though... Kvist isn't the man yet. As for undies, what in they had had Calvin Klein written on them? Nothing wrong with sticking it to the man if the man is Plattini and his accountants.

Alan has gotten worriyngly accident-prone in the last 16 months. You can tell the veterans were feeling the heat from the younger crews and with this being Capello's last Le Mans, I guess Alan wanted it just a bit too much.

Stupid move all around, Porsche curves aint the spot for such a risky lapping maneuver, and certainly not with less than three hours on the clock.

Interestingly, Tom had an offer from Toyota but declined (I guess it's okay to reveal that since he basically hinted at it in the Danish press anyways). Too bad, TMG is an excellent bunch of guys and I'm sure he could have helped them tremendously but I guess he feels he's too old for a change of scenery

I've just been training everyday and bring good news. I am playing in the US Open Qualies this Saturday in Mason. I will be playing where the Cincy Open takes place. Awesome courts! I also have a summer job as a tennis assistant. I teach little kids to adults and it's a blast. A bit more tiring than actually playing but it's so much fun.

Anyway, I will make a mental note to come in here more often to chat with you guys; especially with all this great grass-court tennis on TV - thank goodness!

In today's last game Caro landed three 2nd serves and won all those points. She also landed five 1st serves and lost all those points.

Unfortunately,the supposed jinx from playing a grass tune-up didn't seem to affect Paszek much today,did it?(sigh...)

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

Italy in the final ... who'd thought (not me) ... but they were the better team on the night.

British commentators with all their statistics are one of my pet peeves. No other country is so obsessed with statistics. .. 'Uh back in 1970, Germany won all their group games to then lose to Italy in the SF. Could this be an omen for tonight's game' ... to then go on and on and on about other matches played 30, 40, 50 years ago

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen

The match was lost for Germany the moment Löw decided on his starting lineup. Taking out the players who were brilliant against Greece (Reus, Schürle) and replacing them with struggling players like Kroos & Podolski killed the match before it even started.

It was obvious that Reus was the best of the German side the moment he came on in the second half. As long as Bayern players get special treatment, this team will not win any titles. All of Bayern's supposedly top players sucked today, Gomez had exactly 0 chances, Schweinsteiger was too bad to even put it into words.

The match could have easily ended 5-0, 2-1 is a flattering result.
