RG Round of 16 update...

First group of eight in the Round of 16 has been set:
-Gulbis (#80 ranking) vs  Llodra (#41 ranking) *le snore*
-Mathieu (#18 seed) vs Djokovic (#3 seed) (allez Mathieu...hope the French fans openly cheer for you!!!)
-Chardy (a wildcard, not even ranked in top 100!!!) vs Almagro (#19 seed) (anyone wanna bet on how long this one may last???)
-Verdasco (#22 seed) vs Nadal (#2 seed) (I'm pretty sure you know where my alliance is!)

3 French players (the fan favourites, no doubt) and 3 Spaniards VAMOS!!! Now comes the long wait for tomorrow's schedule of play. *hums...taps fingers on desk...* I suppose I can tune to the Venus/Flavia or Jelena/Dominka match while I wait since I have nothing to do here at work today. Only two more hours then I'm off for a week of rest and relaxation...or rather, a one week, nerve-wracking Roland Garros vigil.

EDIT: Note to self: do not ever say that you have 'nothing to do' at work. KARMA in the form of 16 USA transfer/tryouts. :-(

On the good side, I was able to see Flavia DEFEAT Venus. Both the Williams sisters are out!!! :-)

Awesome! Can I presume that you are not a Williams fan either?

Nope, not a fan. They are drama queens and camera-hogs. I prefer Jankovic (too bad she lost!) and am happy to Safina make it to the final.
