Waiting…..

It started raining/drizzling after the Rafa/Gonzo match.  But apparently, they are drying off the courts now but it is still a very light drizzle so hopefully the women’s first semi final will be able to get underway.

Meanwhile, Kim-C uploaded a few photos from her website, kimclijsters.be <<If you wanna check them all out.

US5That’s how long it took Rafa to demolish Gonzo in their rain interrupted match from Thursday.  They finally took to the court with the match at a 2nd set tiebreak.

US4

Rafa won all of the points to go to a two set lead.  He went to a 2-0 lead before Fernando took a time out and got his ankle/foot strapped.

us7

It didn’t help.

us8

Gonzo lost the third set 6-0 and Rafa set up a semi final berth with Elf tomorrow.  Rafael was solid. Gonzalez was, crap.  So many unforced errors lost him the match. I guess he was going for too much.

Vamos Rafa…..

No matches were played today as heavy rainfall drenched the courts.  I think this will teach the players a lesson as to stop saying they don’t need a frickening roof.

I got up at 4am to watch it to be pissed off and waited till 6 for 30minute updates.  I was ecstatic the night before as i was briefly looking at was on my free to air channels (don’ t have fox 😦 boo) to see the tennis.  They kept showing live cross backs to Flushing Meadows and Ashe looked like a swimming pool (literally)

us5So yer. It is screwed up and they kept on saying they may play the Gonzo/Rafa match until they decided it was never going to stop so here are todays drenched and blow dryed out photos. Lol.

The players practiced on indoor courts as the rain kept on coming.
