Whoo! Amid all this gloomy Habs stuff, I’m very happy to say that Roger is doing JUST what I wanted him to do. He’s made it to the finals once again (7th straight!) with minimal stress. I’ve been a little underwhelmed by Wimbly this year if only because Roger was behaving like Good Roger instead of like Sick Roger for the most part. But Wimbly semi-finals are special because I first got into tennis during Nadal’s semi-final match last year against…. Schuttler I think. Anyway, it’s great to see Roger back in another final =)
Also in really good news, there will be no Andy Murray in the finals. Nope. Andy Roddick smashed him in 4 sets (and two tight tie-breaks). Still not sure if it was because Roddick has been playing some of his best tennis in a long time or if it was because Muz wasn’t up to par. Maybe a mix of both? I think all the pressure was getting to Muz.
Roger: “Aww, alright, fine. But just one, okay?”
Meanwhile… Roddick finishes a tight 4 set win over Muz only to find out that he will be playing Roger.
