not behind a computer today. Been keeping an eye on the scoreboard all day. Didn't get to see Serena lose so I have no idea how she played. And since this is French open, no chance of seeing a replay . I was just hoping the numbers would change but no. :) :)

Let's head to Wimbledon for the elusive #24.
In Skan, I still have my ATP crew intact after Khashanov took out some dude today. Still alive. :)

and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

Cancelled tennis channel half a century ago. Hated it. They would show old ATP matches when tournaments were going on LIVE. I packed and left.
If this were Aussie Open, I'd be watching all the replays right now. Serena lost because I was not watching. lol lol lol

Physically, she looks good. She is her mom's type so she'll never fit in Venus' clothes. She's got to shed the rust and she'll be alright. Have not seen the match stats, but from the scoreboard, Serena had so many opportunity to break. I don't know if Kenin was serving like the old Serena or Serena's couldn't read her serve. It seemed like Serena was cursed with the break points.

Next Wimbledon.
She's still my uWP. Kenin and Brengle can win one here and there and that's fine with me. That''s the way it works sometimes in tennis. It's life. You win big ones, you lose big ones.

Let's go try again on the green grass. #24 is what we are looking for.
Baby Olympia came one year too early and stopped the momentum, otherwise, #24 would already be here. But baby is bigger than any slam, so it's all good.
Go, Compton Princess !!!!!!!!!!

"[If someone had told me I'd come this far] I would have thought they were lying, because I wouldn't expect to have gotten only to the third round," she said.
no no no no. As the French say, non non non non.
You have always said you don't go to tournament if you don't think you can win it.
So stop the PR B.S already.
"I'm definitely feeling short on matches and just getting in the swing of things," she added. "I don't really like playing out points when I practise.

"I have some time on my hands, so maybe I'll jump in and get a wildcard on one of these grass-court events and see what happens."
Alright !!
Let's get ready for Wimbledon!!!

Zverev gives me precious Skan points: I am the only one who selected him, so I catch up a lot.

Zverev and Barty are my wild-cards that need to go all the way for me. Next for Zverev is Djokovic. That will be tough....
