Talk about the women's and men's semifinals here. I intend to be especially loquacious.

Tx. I was refreshing every 1minute thinking that will wake you whatever hotel you were snoring at...

Serena, stop the ridiculous choking on break points against her serve.

This first game of the second set should be in your column already.

Craig Hickman said...

I'm saying it again:

Serena, stop ridiculous choking on break points against her serve.

This first game should in your column already.

I am actually watching the game online and the last point to Elena is awesome play by both

Craig Hickman said...

Move your feet!

Craig Hickman said...

Elena is playing pretty well to keep it close, but Serena is letting her off the hook on a few too many big points.

If she's not careful, Elena will wear her down and take this in three as she's done in their last two big matches.

Craig Hickman said...

Serena, how about a first serve for once.

Craig Hickman said...

That's exactly what you get. Do you honestly think Elena doesn't believe she can beat you on this stage?

Stop choking and play your damn game, lady.

dapxin said...

good Q C,
Serena is giving it away slow slow and i hate ie

Craig Hickman said...

This slow giveaway has been going on for two years now. Ever since she won here two years ago. She usually recovers.

But not against this player.

Even that break point was Serena's to win had she come to net on one of those deep shots.

Elena is up in Serena's head and playing well.

dapxin said...

Its perhaps the one rider to the art of being supremely confident...

But Elena too is a grand choker...If I was rooting for her, I'd be shocked some of the points already lost by her.

Incredible tennis

Craig Hickman said...

Okay, girl. Don't think about anything. Just serve.

dapxin said...

Thank you Oracle craig.

telegram recived.

Craig Hickman said...

Those returns were stunning.

Back to deuce.

Serena, serve two bombs and get out of this game now.

Craig Hickman said...

Damnit, Serena. You had that game under control at 40-15.

Craig Hickman said...

You made her run that much and then tepidly pushed a ball long?

Geez.

dapxin said...

god! my heart beating at ???? speed as Serena went to the net there.

aaaaaaaaw!

Craig Hickman said...

Okay, Serena.

Just serve.

dapxin said...

god Craig, you can leave your sisi to the job here. sleep! :)

Craig Hickman said...

That's my girl.

Now go and win this thing.

dapxin said...

That shriek from Elena made me feel sorry for the russian chick tho.

She will be disappointed yet again....awwwwwwww.

But Serena always leaves the best for the last.

I am feeling sexy!

Craig Hickman said...

Sexy, huh?

Pamela said...

Who knew you were so harsh Craig? But as I said, happy thoughts eh? She won! Yay!

dapxin said...

Craig. Yes.

sadly, the one that must be obeyed is not here @ work...:)

I dont follow tennis to know - what was the umpire call at 3-3 2nd set for Zvon v Safina ?

she had the ball to be got and the umpire changed her mind in favour of Hawk-eye. Is that the play ? gosh! I hate technology in sports

Craig Hickman said...

Pamela,

When I watch my faves, I give them hell.
