Et deux...

Today was one of those days to remind me of why sports is aggrevating and unfair, as the better player lost to his tiredness, from winning a title on Saturday.  And stupid Murray was able to come back from two sets down to beat Gasquet (you remember him, from failed a drugs test for cocaine and blamed it on kissing a girl called Pamela) despite not playing as well and muttering to himself in that moody/crazy manner of his. I also blame him for the fact that I wasted four hours today doing very little.
Elena Baltacha also lost (to the 8th seed), didnt see it though as we were in Murray central, apparently she put up quite the old fighteroo in the second set but still lost 6-0, 7-5.  And Katie O'brien is our remaining women in the draw, and she plays tomorrow.  So does Dinara Safina- ontvontvontvontv- must be?
Jelana Jankovic played today and won, but the 'live stream' had ended before her match started...of course if she's not Andy Murray then shes no good for TV.  Andy Roddick and Nadal on tomorrow, I think Nadal will monopolise the media coverage but I also think his match will be nice and quick (well not nice for his opponent but I dont even know his name so I dont care, Ill wait until tomorrow to humanise him).

Another piece of French Open news is that they are thinking of moving from Roland Garros in Paris so they can expand- they only have 20 acres now poor babies (ok US Open has 35, and Wimby and Oz has 50 apparently).  John LLoyd says you have to move on, or change or something...which seems like a weak reason for a 600 million Euro project...

Roll on the morrow...
