Thanks as always for the "Reader Props." You've always been very quick about noticing new articles! It was fun to write about Jerzy--not a household name to most people, so kept it as more of an introductory piece. Will be interesting to see if he can get a semifinal showdown with Murray--would be a dangerous match for sure. Still, Melzer is a wily veteran and may handle pressure better if it is tight.
I will be looking to post several pieces this week, so we will have to talk more as the week and stories unfold...
Addy, appreciate the prop as always. It's also nice to see some other well-written articles from a few B/R writers, so this helps the site with what I hope will be evolved quality. Do you think Nadal will defend his title or will Djokovic break through? Tsonga might be the sleeper on the bottom of the bracket.
Yes I'm doing well.
Just gearing up like everyone else for the start of the FO.
I've looked up your site a few times now - see you haven't posted since Miami.
Any news re your application or is it same old, same old?
I looked through some of the articles and the standard is really good.
Will certainly pay it more visits and make comments where necessary.
Federer through. Historically, there's being a bit of tension between Gulbis and Nadal so should be an interesting encounter.
I'm doing well and you? It has being a while.
Nadal's comeback is great news for the us all as it adds another dimension to the conversation. As for his chances at IW, assuming he gets through the Fourth round and has to play Federer, I'd give him a good chance if Federer plays like he has in the first and second sets vs. Wawrinka (the third set is just starting). I didn't get to see the Dodig match, but the lack of arch in the back is something I have also noticed with Federer for a few months now. It does look strange when he does it, and perhaps it is a compensatory ploy, but to be honest I haven't made much of it.
Really hope you are doing well. I remember you saying sometime back you were going to drift away from B/R, but I'm sure you are enjoying all of the wonder that tennis continues to deliver.
If you ever need something, let me know. You are one of the true tennis connoisseurs.
I've just being so busy the last few weeks but it's not forgotten.
I've the clips collected but the real work is the writing involved which can often take a bit of time.
Leave it with me.
Thanks for the like.
Got the "shots" thing coming. I guess we'll see how good my taste is.
