    Default Any tennis fans here?

    Nadal vs. Federer for another Grand Slam championship.

    Best individual rivalry in the history of sports.

    Hell yeah, I love the Aussie because it starts at 12:30 West Coast time. Usually there's nothing to watch when I'm up late at night. I even got to watch the sun rise after that long-ass Nadal/Verdasco semifinal.

    And wow...those were some amazing forehands by Nadal to hold serve at 5-5 in the 3rd.

    Yes, although I haven't watched much lately.

    Other than the continuous never-ending match that goes on in my head.

    Damn. I usually watch tennis. Can't believe I missed it, I guess that's what happens when you don't have a sibling around to remind you of these things.

    I'm actually kind of bummed out. I usually catch at least some of these things, especially grand slams (usually follow at least elimination rounds)!
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    One thing I noticed about Federer today, his focus when the matches go long definitely wanes a bit. He misses shots, gets caught in bad spots. I wonder if it's physical or mental. In all of these matches between them, Nadal hits big shot after big shot going into the later rounds. He always has just a little something left, whether it's mental or physical.

    They're a joy to watch. Federer, with his mechanical precision and lethality, to Nadal's pure power and athleticism, they're awesome to watch.
