Today, I buried my horse and my dog cried. Today, Serena Williams overcame herself and a valiant opponent in Svetlana Kuznetsova and won a brilliant and thrilling three-set match to put herself in a position to tie Steffi Graf's record of five Sony Ericsson Open titles. Today, Andy Roddick defeated world No. 1 and perennial monkey-on-his-back Roger Federer in a brilliant and thrilling three-set match to give himself a shot at two. He fucking did it. He beat Raja. And I saw him do it. It was a phenomenal effort. So now the newly engaged Andy has victories over the No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3 players in the world in a matter of weeks.
Love is a beautiful thing.
