Holy crap! That was close!

I missed the first two sets of Federer's match vs. Jose (Chucho) Acasuso (that's his glorious self above, pictured in better times) at the French Open today due to an over-confident sleep. I had no business being over-confident, it turns out. Roger nearly lost the first set, but scraped through in the first set tiebreak (saving about 4 set points, I guess), then proceeded to lose the second set and go down 1 game to 5 in the third. I'm pretty sure the blood drained from my face when I turned the TV on!

What happened? I don't really know...from the time I turned the match on until Roger finally wrapped it up in the 4th, I thought he was playing pretty well. I do think Chucho choked trying to serve out the third (twice), but I also think some of that was due to a lot of pressure from Roger. I think the sleeping giant had at least partially awoke in time. Roger won 7-6, 5-7, 7-6, 6-2 in four sets.

I must say that I feel pretty sorry for Chuch - that's gotta hurt. But somebody has got to lose in order for my Roger to win, I always say!

Whew. Don't do that in the next round please, Roger. And enjoy the beach, Chuch!

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I approve of young women cavorting on the beach in bikinis.

Love the alliteration "chucho choked". And all I can about that photo is that I'm seriously going for that George Michael beard look if that's all it takes.

LOL, you two.
