Follow the Bouncing Ball
I headed down to the Shark Tank this evening for the second night of the last ever SAP Open Tennis tournament in San Jose. I was concerned about being late, but apparently the day session had run very long, so even though I was about 45 minutes late, they were only just introducing the players for the first match.( Good seats, then better onesCollapse )
Verdasco seemed to be trying hard, but Symczek was on fire, making shots and getting lucky a couple of times — I saw a serve hit the line and go careening off randomly, for instance — and the underdog will find himself in the Top 100 next Monday, as he defeated Verdasco 6-3, 6-3.
That's a great start to my tennis week. The only problem is getting enough sleep to do this and also get my Day Jobbe done. Current Mood: happy
