I suppose this is what I guess for reveling in the rain delays; the skies have more-or-less cleared (although the long range forecast isn't good for the next few days)and - bingo - we are now looking at 71 singles matches scheduled just for today. Same old story, pay now or pay later. Can you overdose on tennis? I'm sure Tim, Daylily, Bob, Matt, Mici, Ms. Rubin, Hank et al will try their darndest. Here, kids, first one's free. . .a

Anyway, you all will want to talk to each other while I get caught up and try to see some tennis here, so take it away. Isn't it great to see the players hitting balls again?
