Don’t expect me to return phone calls or answer many emails before Sunday evening. I am deep into the U S Open tennis tournament. Watched Roger Federer win a nail-biting 5-setter last night. It was great to watch him dig deep and pull it out. He’s likely to do the same thing tomorrow night – hopefully not a 5-setter.
Tonite it’s Rafa Nadal’s turn, up against Mardy Fish, who is playing better than he has ever played in his life. Mardy is part of the crew that came up all at the same time – Andy Roddick, James Blake, and a couple more who have already faded. All moving into their later twenties now. So I think Rafa will win, and Mardy may fade back into the woodwork. But he will have had one heckuva run, just prior to his wedding later this month.
These are the quarterfinals, with the semis looming. If Andy Roddick comes through tomorrow, he and Roger will play on Saturday. Right now, Andy Murray is leading Juan Del Potro, so the other semi is likely to be Rafa versus the British Andy.
Like I said – I’ll get back to you Sunday evening!
