I tried to watch the final. Really, I did. But Sam Querrey's hang-dog attitude turned me right off, so the action on ESPN was background noise rather than focus.
I used to like Robby Ginepri. Really, I did. But he often exhibits no fight and can evaporate in a match quicker than gasoline. A win is a win. It's been a long time between drinks.
I'm not in love with Nikolay Davydenko as a few of our readers are, but it's nice to see him win another title. Too bad he did it in an event I disregarded.
So as not to get into any more trouble, the less said about the world No. 1 the better.
