Hi Poet, I'm poking you. Wake up buddy!
The US Open is already here, so NOW is the time to come make your picks in the US Open Bracket Challenge sponsored by Avery Tennis.
Little known facts:
1. It's free.
2. It's fun.
3. The Grand Prize is a new Avery M3 Control racquet.
4. Do I need any more reasons?
5. It's more fun to follow the tourney when you have points at stake.
6. Bragging rights.
7. OK, I'm all out...
Hi Poet, I saw your post in the "chat" where you said you were bored... has the chat replaced the Forum. I'm trying to get the Forum rolling again (like it was during the AO.) Post something in there for me because I need it.
Guess this is old news, I spent the first week in Oz at the second week of the Open. Just got back as I went all over. Very Exciting. Had front row seats directly over the player's entrance. I sent 15 or so images in. Best match was the men's final, looked like Jo-Wilfred really might do it after the dramatic first set win. Man, these guys hit hard. Tsonga has considerable clay court experience so the French should be smoking. If he faces up with Nadal there, that is going to be a barn burner. I can hardly wait.
By the way, the men's final will be at 3:30 am ET saturday morning, or 12:30 am for you.. on ESPN 2. I don't know why they didn't have that written in, maybe they just forgot to add that. But during the semi-final matches they tell you it will be live so ya. Good thing I was leaning to Djokovic, I knew he would probably win! Federer was just hitting too hard, the ball would come back to Djokovic almost instantly, and Djokovic was just taking his time, following through and just hitting the ball perfectly.
Although, I only saw like 8 minutes of the match.. I stayed up until 3:28 and somehow passed out, woke up during the second set, and passed out forever.
