    It's Rookwood pottery, which is a regional treasure and pretty collectible. Rookwood tile is in a lot of period Arts and Craft homes. Intent: Perfect. Design: Grandma.

    The trophy is pretty yet vapid, just like Grigor.

    And Halep lost! Let's bring out the dancing bananas.



    Also, I'm beginning to enjoy watching Cahill suffer, not to the level I enjoy watching Mirka suffer, but still.

    I think the trophy can also come in quite handy for storing Grandma's ashes.

    Rumor on twitter had it that Halep called for him in set 2 but he refused to come.

    He's had a pretty crap couple of seasons, so I'm sure it's a big deal to break through that.

    He walked away from her before and she begged him to come back.

    When I saw him putting her through her paces during a practice at the US Open a couple of years ago he was working hard to try and get her to come in more, to be comfortable at the net. She reacted like Superman to kryptonite.

    Don't forget Simona is small compared to other players and she is never going to be able to trade shots with big hitters like she tried to do yesterday.

    I think she needs to do what Murray did and see a sports psychologist.

    Halep is small, but so was Justine Henin and she won 7 slams anyway despite Serena and everything. So Ti-Amie has a point, better psychology could mitigate her height limitations.
