In between yelps of "What the hell if Roger Federer doing?" and "What the hell is Andy Murray doing??!!" I found myself on the edge of my seat for a match featuring two players I simply can't make myself like all that much.
But what's not to like about scintillating tennis between two players, one struggling physically, the other struggling mentally, who make remarkable plays by sheer force of will even when one of them doesn't have to win?
Hat's off to both of them.
And I noticed the tennis talkaratti have kicked Novak Djokovic to the curb. Now Andy Murray is the heir apparent to the top spot.
And Gilles Simon has advanced to the semifinals, also on his first try. Nice work if you can get it.
