    I'm really torn about who to root for in the Final. I love Novak -- he's probably my favorite contemporary tennis player -- but I always feel bad for Murray, and I think I always will. :(

    the announcers just said that 100 million of her countrymen are watching li na play for the title. imagine 100 million of your countrymen watching you do anything, lol.

    she had a panic attack and couldn't breathe. it seems like everyone thinks she should have just gone out there anyway and dramatically collapsed on the court or something.

    Crap. Murray needs to turn this around.

    This is all Wawrinka's fault.

    Oh well. Djokovic is the best player at the moment. These two will have many more battles ahead.

    I really thought it was going to be a fantastic match. And then it wasn't. I'd really like to see Djokovic gunning for Nadal at Roland Garros. Someone needs to beat Nadal in a final at the French before Nadal gets so old and weak-kneed that it's a completely hollow victory.

    Nadal will be ready. He'll never be the clay wizard he was in 2008, when he wiped out Roger Federer by giving up just four games in three sets, but he's still the best clay court player in the world. The margin has diminished, though, and this could be Djokovic's chance to get his career Slam.

    i'm watching nadal play in the round of 16 at the vtr open. he looks pretty good, if not exactly in top form. it's just nice to see him on the court.

    nadal crushed federer yesterday in the final of the italian open. he appears to be rounding into form just in time for the french, which starts sunday.

    It's great to see both of them in a final, but Nadal just rolled over Federer. Clearly, Nadal's lower seeding at Roland-Garros isn't going to make the slightest bit of difference to Nadal. It's just going to be bad for other top seeds who meet him earlier.

    he's seeded fourth so none of the top three would face him before the semis. pretty much business as usual.

    My girlfriend Ana Ivanovic won her first round match, barely.
