Roland Garros Quarterfinals Preview – The Men

Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Robin Soderling (5) Robin Soderling remains the only person ever to have beaten Rafa at Roland Garros. He’s beaten the defending champion two years running en route to the final.

Thank You Twitter

WTF Day 6 & 7

I’m visiting home for Thanksgiving and for some reason, my computer and my parents’ wifi don’t get along. All week, I’ve had a couple of brief windows to use the internet, which has hampered both my ability to write about tennis and find spectacular shopping deals.

Today or Yesterday, I’m not really sure anymore, Day 4, one thing I expected happened and one thing I definitely didn’t expect happened. First, Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic, winning both of his round robin matches so far. I honestly […]
