Over and Out

Well, it’s been pretty lively around here these past few posts. Many thanks to the Elders, and everyone else who posted comments on Rogael Naderer and the great, aborning rivalry.

To tell you the truth, I got so wrapped up in posting the past few days that I haven’t been on top of the news; I probably need to find a better balance that allows me more time to better cherry pick the stream of news sources flowing through here.

I haven’t mentioned Nadia Petrova’s big win over Justine DoubleH, although that performance was certainly worthy of a post on its own. I think I’ll include my thoughts on Petrova in a post early next week on one of the best tournaments I’ve ever covered: the Orange Bowl of 1998 (clue: check the picture of Roger Federer in the “Houston, We Have Lift Off” post comes from).

Look for a Guillermo Vilas post as well, as we await what seems like the inevitable destruction of his clay-court winning streak record the next time Rafael Nadal lifts a racquet.

Little son Luke has been suffering terribly from some bizarre viral cough, and on top of that I need to take him to a speech/language pathologist for a school mandated evaluation today. Cowboy Luke is tough, but I think I need to take him to get another car for his Thomas and Friends train set after this testing today (a laughing coal car, perhaps, or maybe the red engine, Mavis), and spend a good part of tomorrow with the lad.

Have a great weekend everyone!
