    I have to say something a little about the men's final because it deserves to be talked about, seriously, lol. :P

    Did you watch the match, Marija? I know you're a women's tennis fan. But well, I have to say this was the best final I have seen in my entire life. It was the longest match in the open era in terms of games. It was truly heartbreaking to see Andy Roddick lose, he cried in the end. He was very disappointed. He should have won that second set holding 5 set points. And the match could go a lot longer if he get to serve first in that final set and was not standing under the sun while Federer stood under the shade. Federer admit his luck also helped him win today. It's not like Andy is young anymore as he is almost the same age as Federer, I hope he'll win the U.S. Open and Wimbledon next year.

    This final owns any of the final ever played since I started watching tennis. It was so great, I would pay 20,000 pounds to watch it. :P

    I was enjoying my Sunday out of the city, but I came back towards the end of the match, and I couldn't believe the score! I can only imagine how it feels to lose a match after such a long fight.
