Mmm this is a good math, two players I really enjoy, but I happen to be a little sleepy and my mind is wandering...
I think they should let the grass grow during the tournament. Add another dimension to the game - grass getting a little long... a dandelion here or there - "oh that shot really skidded of that dandelion..."
It would be like how so many athletes stop shaving during a championship run. Exept, it would be the ground, not their faces. Which is good. Tennis players don't do that, like especially the hockey guys do. Like a bunch of lumbrjacks by the Stanley Cup. If Federer say, decided not to shave till he lost on grass, or Nadal on clay, they would have long, flowing beards. Though neither one is very hairy.
Anyway, just having some thoughts. Great match, fun to be on the grass. TIght in the 3rd set right now, on serve, both guys playing nice tennis. What's gonna happen?
