OK so once a-fucking-gain Australia has not been very good to me/us, or rather it was good to me up until the semi finals then it went a bit wrong
First things first, Rafa was not there so this slam doesn’t actually count
COME BACK SOON BB
So in terms of the other members of the Armada, Daveed did very well and continuing with his excellent form, no? I thought his five setter against Almagro was a little random but fighting to win from two sets down is mighty impressive. He’s in his 30s now you know ;)
Delpo not much to say to you, honey bear. Strange match.
Belgian Daveed, at least he got through qualifying, excited to see him back on clay soon
CLAY IS BACK SOON
Roger was beautiful and stunning and absolutely flawless, which is not a rare occurrence. His serve was A+, backhand better than I’ve seen it recently and forehand was A+. Hair was A+++.
the real champions of this grand slam were Roger’s SHOES
Andy nice try
What a dull final that was, no? long rallies followed by an error, occasionally some nice tennis. We need some Spanish fire to spice things up a bit.
At least there was no shirt rip.
slam in conclusion: some fun then some pain
ROLAND GARROS IS NEXT bring it on
Now I’ve calmed down about the football,
Roger. Roger Federer. I was almost crying by the end of the first few games due to the sheer beauty of this man’s game on grass. He’s like Nadal on clay, nothing phases him and he is in complete control. My hopes for a Fedal final have now be resurrected, providing Rafa doesn’t randomly fuck anything up. But I trust him.
The two people I care most about in this half played each other today so Roger is basically the only one left that I actively support- Fabio was his usual fabulous self and played some excellent tennis today, it was so good to see him on Centre Court. Until next time, Fognini.
Nadal is last on Centre so I’ll be home in time to catch it. Straight sets, please be quicker off the mark :c
Goffin is playing first on Court 18 so I’ll miss it ;____; I really, really hope he puts up a serious fight and gets into the third round.
VAMOS AND ALLEZ
Obvious start would be Rafael’s antics on Centre Court this afternoon. Scared the shit out of me, as I’m sure you can all guess, the first 4 games. I mean, we all know he usually takes a while to settle into matches but THAT was just terrifying. He was missing forehands he would never, ever miss normally and it scared me, to see him so uncomfortable. It was painful to see him clearly distressed, both at his own game and Thomaz’s excellent forehands and serving. Still, I never had any doubt he’d win it and he got through it 7-6(7-0) 6-2 6-3. Hoping his next match will be easier.
Fallen completely in love with David Goffin. Loved him dearly at Roland Garros, even when he took a set off Roger, and he’s been flawless once again on grass. Super proud this is only his first time at Wimbledon, through to the second round <3 It was an excellent match, Tomic being sloppy at times, but once Daveed relaxed he took complete control. Seriously, watch out for this guy this year.
Delpo got through! Watched the last two sets of Andy Murray’s match, he looks in comfortable shape and I’m very glad he doesn’t seem to be bothered by any injuries, his back looks ok.
Ferru didn’t get to finish his match so I’ll catch the end of that tomorrow.
Roger plays Fognini tomorrow, which I’m super excited about because it’s the first match in quite a while I’ve seen where I adore both players. Unfortunately I won’t be around for it but will make sure I record it! Expecting straight sets.
VAMOS AND ALLEZ as always
