Roger Falls Again

I realize that there probably aren't a lot of other passionate tennis watchers out there but I like to pop in with my tennis news every now and then (not bore you to death over what they are wearing, etc... constantly). However, I am so surprised at Roger's demise since the French Open! He lost to USA's James Blake at the Olympics in the quarter finals which is good for Blake and the USA. It's the first time Blake has defeated Federer in nine career meetings. Perhaps he is saving his energy for the US Open? Serena Williams also lost.

I'm a tennis fan too but haven't been following the Olympics. Yes, its surprising about Federer isn't it? It will be interesting to see how he performs in the Open.

Nooo! But he's so cute! I mean, talented. Talented.

Another tennis fan here. I wouldn't hang out at a blog that was all about tennis, but I would love it if you posted some tennis bits in here. You should check out some vintage tennis accoutrements. That would be a fun post.

I haven't come across many "all tennis" blogs that I find very interesting. There is one but I can't remember the name!
