  1. 40 Quick Hits from this year's US Open

    (sorry, but I just couldn't stretch it to 50. You need three days to do that. Anyway, here's some quick hits and impressions from my trip to the Open):

    1. Virginia Ruano Pascual might very well have the finest body I have ever seen on a woman 34 or older. And she puts most 24 year olds to shame as well.

    2. Robby Ginepri just doesn’t seem to want it bad enough

    3. The first player I spotted this year was Shahar Pe’er. Second was Tommy Haas. No, it was not ...

  2. Plea to Nikolay Davydenko

    Kolya,

    You have an unbelievable game--a unique style that is, in my opinion, the most entertaining in the game. Watching you take the title in Miami by dismantling Rafa in the final led me to believe that it was going to be a great year for you.
    But then you got nervous after going up two sets on Ljubicic at the French. That sucked . Getting nervous doesn't help. take a page out of Rafa's book and try and always be positive and upbeat. I think it will serve you well. You only ...

    #9. Paszek’s women’s doubles loss to the powerhouses of Ditty and Gullickson. It was a horrible experience. And Mariana Alves’ stupid overrule calling one of Tamira’s second serves “out” didn’t help matters any.

While standing in the men’s bathroom line by Court 13 before heading into Ashe for the Sunday night session, the guy in front of me became completely uncorked because he had to stand in line. His wife, who was less than earnest in being sympathetic, became completely dumbfounded when he pointed out, “But you weren’t the one who bought the tickets!”

    #9. Wandering accidentally into the Bremond/Garbin match, we decide to root for Severine ferociously. And her box kept looking at ...

  5. Bad news for them. Good news for me!

    So I recently found out that I have a better chance at making the team this year than I thought. Last year only ONE guy graduated, and I know that we have at least one freshman coming who is amazing (he dominated a pretty good player on our team this summer at an Open tournament something like 1 and 2). I figured that I probably wouldn't have a much of a chance of making the Spring cut, but that I would make it past Fall tryouts and have a fun few months on the team.
