    Tennis update for Midget
    So she proved once again that she's not just a pretty face. And she walked away with US$ 1.7 million in prize money. She's got the looks, she's got the style and she's got the game. That's more than enough reasons to hate Shara. But how can you hate a girl who comes up with this at a press conference following her US Open triumph? -

    "I believe, at the end of the day, personally, my life is not about a banana."

    ;-)


    As for the guys, tonight there will be a dream final clash between Federer and Roddick. Roddick, himself a champion in New York in 2003, is rumoured to be romantically involved with Shara. Thus the joke: "Doing another Grand Slam winner is like winning another Grand Slam". Both Shara and Roddick refuse to talk about their private lives though, so I can't really blame people for coming up with corny jokes. I hope Roddick wins tonight.

    Speaking of tennis jokes, there is a good reason why I love tennis press conferences. Enjoy!

    Q: Why do you think you didn’t win today?
    Rafael Nadal: Because I lost.

    Q: I wasn’t here the other night but you lost that set 6 Love to…
    Amelie Mauresmo: I don’t know what you are talking about.
    Q: People who I was sitting with were saying, “Oh, gosh, it’s the same old Mauresmo.” I know that’s insulting.
    Amelie Mauresmo: I still don’t know what you are talking about.

    Q: You’re pretty good friends with James. Do you guys really do anything in between tournaments, anything that’s extreme? I know Andy likes to go skydiving.
    Mardy Fish: Yeah, we don’t do that.

    Q: Who would win a boxing match between you and Nadal?
    Roger Federer: We’re not physical, the tennis players. We don’t like to touch each other.

    Q: Do you feel relief that playing Agassi is not going to happen?
    Andy Roddick: Obviously you want to play against your idols, but then again you don’t want to be the guy who shot Bambi.

    Q: Can you describe what you felt in the locker room?
    Andy Roddick: Was that before or after you guys knocked down the door to get in?

    Q:
    You look pretty happy.
    Andy Roddick:
    I am happy.
    Q:
    How is it a different way of playing?
    Andy Roddick:
    You guys are the analysts, you tell me.
    Q:
    You’re the player. We like to hear it from the horse’s mouth.
    Andy Roddick:
    That’s all right. Go buy a horse.

      Ok, this one was funny, but only cause of the press conference jokes.

      My cousins were THERE. They watched the ladies finals over THERE.

      I saw their pics today and I envied them SO MUCH. I wish I was there with them!

      Yes, QC...the press conferences were funny...and the Roddick/Federer match had some brilliant tennis ....I watched the Federer interview on CNN, too...and he seems to be a nice guy...I always use that as a yardstick for future support...If someone's an ass****, or grunts too loudly on the shot, then I shout for the other guy/gal...

      What else? ...Oh, yes... You were right a while ago, I do like tennis ...at least I used to before the serve and volley power game came in ... I preferred to watch the women after that ...

      '...you don’t want to be the guy who shot Bambi.'...lol...
