Tennis Season 2015

Still disappointed about the US Open. :(

When I woke up and checked the results for Serena's semi, I was so shocked.

The men's final a few days later was on a Monday morning over here and started like right when I was supposed to start work. When I went for my lunch break, Fed was down 2-5 in the forth and Mole was serving for the match. I thought it was over but then Fed broke and held and then was on the verge of breaking again. I was glued to the live scores on my phone and having a quiet meltdown so my coworkers wouldn't judge me. :lol: But then Mole held and took out the match and I was depressed for the rest of the day. :lol: :(

Aaah well, fingers crossed for the Aus Open! I'm hoping to make plans to go this year. :D Anyone been to a grand slam before? Any advice? I'm thinking of probably going the first few days. I just need to see Federer and Serena play in real life once in my life. I don't even care if it's an unexciting match against flop players.

I'd love to go to a grand slam but sadly don't have the money.

I have the perfect chance to see my two all time favourite players (Maybe play each other) Andy Murray and Lleyton Hewitt at the Davis Cup in Glasgow. Sadly I didn't get tickets. I may be able to get one somehow...

I'm going to the Davis Cup tomorrow in my country. Not really the biggest matches, but it's our first chance ( :oops:) to get into the final since the installation of the current system (1981). I think the winner of the Davis Cup 2015 is certainly in the other semifinal lol. Hopefully you'll be able to get a ticket! Seems like an awesome semifinal.

I'm going to Roland Garros next year, also one of the first few days.

That was amazing! I can't believe I seen my two tennis heroes - Andy Murray and Lleyton Hewitt. The match had everything and it went to five sets. There were hints of classic Hewitt throughout too. I couldn't be happier! :D

Andy managed to do the thing practically on his own.

Well done VENUS!
I am actually so overjoyed for her (even though it wasn't a straight win).
Really proud she is gonna be back in the top 20 firmly!

I'm so glad Jelena beat Venus, she has positive score with her now

And what the hell is Novak doing to Murray, against #2. :o

I would agree.. but also kudos to my love, Roger. He had an amazing season.. and wouldnt it be for Novak, he would have cleaned some GS titles and Masters Events. anyway, Roger had a great season too.

I am really sad for Juan Martin Del Potro.. he wanted to comeback this season but due to injuries, he couldn't. Del Potro is a natural top 5 player. I pray for him to return in 2016.

Good season for Novak but that win against Kevin Anderson during Wimbledon still runs in my mind as a lucky injustice.
