Rome Crisis Center, May 15

by: Peter Bodo May 15, 2012

PicGreetings, everyone. The action in Rome is well underway; among the early winners, Maria Sharapova.  I imagine the previous threads are getting pretty plugged up, so here's a new crisis center where you can continue your ongoing discussions of Rome. I took a quick look around this morning and was surprised to see that Rafael Nadal has not played yet, and unless I'm mistaken he doesn't appear to be on the schedule for today. What did he do, request a Wednesday start? I'm going to post some thoughts on Rafa a little later in the day. Enjoy the tennis and try to be kind to everyone you interact with today.
