X Marks the Spot

Never thought I'd live to see the day again, but take a look at this. Xavier Malisse, one of the biggest underachievers of his generation, beats the number 3 of the world. Well done, X-man.

(And just my luck that this match was moved from Center Court to a court with no cameras.)

A Cover Story

Apparently the Aegon Classic in Birmingham expected a long hot summer this year. But instead, it rained quite a bit and they weren't prepared

...The problem was that the ground staff had been lumbered with the same covers that they used last year, even though the playing area has been expanded by at least a yard at each end...

...problems were further compounded by a broken-down water clearing device, which reduced the Priory Club to handing out towels and asking the staff to jump up and down on them. In an era when Wimbledon has a retractable roof, this felt like something from the stone age...

Cup Final

A bit off topic, but today my team AA Gent is playing the Belgian Cup Final. We're living our best season in half a century, after taking second place last week by beating archrivals Club Brugge 6-2 and thereby claiming the second CL ticket. And today we are the big favorites to win the Cup Final against non-archrivals Cercle Brugge. Two years ago we lost the Cup Final to Anderlecht after leading 2-1, then two of our ex-players scored two more goals for Anderlecht.
I was there then and we lost. I'm not going tonight so we will definitely win !

First really decent week on the tennis in a very long time. It seems like the new 'system' is finally kicking off.

One Million Dollars...

That's what one account backed Federer for during his loss against Gulbis. The score was 6-2 2-2, the odds 1.05, 1.06. As you may have heard, Fed lost that match. Someone isn't happy today...

Congratulations on Your Forthcoming Marriage, Sania

Indian rightwing nationalist protestors burn an effigy of tennis player Sania Mirza in Mumbai on March 31, 2010. The Indian tennis star confirmed March 30 she will marry Pakistani cricket star Shoaib Malik, forming a unique union bridging the two nations' bitter sporting and political divide.

It's nice when everyone in your country supports you.

Andy Murray is Not English. He's Not Even British

At least according to the BBC:

...British interest in the Sony Ericsson Open is over after Elena Baltacha was beaten 6-1 6-3 by Belgian Yanina Wickmayer in the second round in Miami...

That's what you get for not playing Davis Cup, Andy.
The question now remains, if he's not British, what is he ? Finnish ? Anyway, any country that wants him, can pick him up at their local McDonald's Drive-Thru.
