LOL I like him and agree that he is cute and funny, but I wouldn't call him "hot". Now Rafa and Blake are HOT HOT HOT.

1) Serena's "lucky shots" interview :tape:
2) The amazing 27-shot rally with rapid fire exchanges at the net between Justine and Venus at 5-5 in the 1st set of their semifinal.
3)Venus - Jelena and Justine - Venus matches :yeah:
4) "Black Sunday" (Sharapova, Petrova, Hingis, Vaidisova, Patty and Kirilenko all losing on the same day) :help:
5) Novak Djokovic impersonating Sharapova and Nadal :lol:
6) Tatiana Golovin got "rolled over" by Asaha Rolle.
7) "Match of the Year" - Djokovic vs Radek
8) Mattek's leopard outfit :spit:
9) Roddick and Justin Gimelstop's "moment of insanity" during their match (What I understand is that Gimelstop was about to serve where he saw navy personels walking into the stadium. He stopped serving, and the umpire warned him for time wasting - he argued that he was "respecting them for their service to America". He then continued his serve... and ended up with a DF. Roddick shouted to him that his "waiting" was all for nothing, and Gimelstop replied back [something]).
10) ... and of course, Justine winning her "lucky" 7th slam ;)

I agree with a lot of what people are saying, but I would also add the Blake-Santoro match. I love Santoro, not such a big fan of Blake, but it was a brilliant match, great contrast of styles, and it's always good to see a player win their first 5-setter, particularly since it has been something of a chip on Blake's shoulder. Tennis was the winner :yeah:

I'm not enjoying all the Nole hating on the WTA boards, it makes me upset! I didn't actually get to watch any play, only listen, But I very much enjoyed Jelena's press interviews. Justine beating both Williams' was awesome too.

And from a ATP point of view, Haas beating Blake was fab, even though I love them both.

If I am not mistaken it was saturday :shrug:

The matches were played at 11am New York time. My country is 12 hours ahead of New York, so it would be 11pm Sat.

By the time the 1st match had concluded (Sharapova vs Aga), it was about 12 something in the morning (my time). All other matches were also played in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

Therefore, I refer it as "Black Sunday" instead of "Black Saturday" :kiss:
