So I just returned from dropping my mothers off at the airport to check the scores and see that defending champion Andy Roddick lost in the first round of Beijing to qualifier Lukasz Kubot in straight sets. And no, Juan Martin del Potro's first round upset to Edouard Roger-Vasselin at the Japan Open wasn't exactly consolation.
RF is fatigued.
The other Andy is injured.
Serena Williams will regain the No. 1 ranking next week? Interesting. Let's see if the ITF will suspend her anyway.
Somebody, please, tell me what the hay has been going on in tennis. I haven't been able to pay much attention at all.
