Various Disconnected Thoughts, Some About Tennis

RR here -

Andreas Beck looks almost exactly like Leo DiCaprio at 16 in "What;s Eating Gilbert Grape" - except that he's 6'2".

We were just discussing, Monaco has various princes, but no king/queen? Why is that? I have no idea - if anyone has the details, please elaborate.

I think our 4 cats really like the clay court season, because, clay courts are basically giant litter boxes. They are all watching...

P and I went to our very first baseball game ever, just last night, the Mets in their stadium. Myself I spent most of the time trying to find someone to talk to about tennis. We do like all the Dominican baseball dudes - we spend a lot of time in the DR.

We are watching Nadal and Murray - oh wow they just showed Danny Hanny in the audience! She lives in MC I think - er don't think it's a "dating" thing. Yikes, we just saw her in Sports Illustrated! It caused strife in our household....

Djokovic-Wawrinka was a pretty great match. This one is interesting but possibly will not be so tight. Nadal and Murray have quite a rivalry shaping up, but I don't know if it will be close on clay. I am very, very interested to see if Rafa can maintain his dominance on clay this season. As everyone says, he really is just getting better. But it can't go on forever!!! He is human! We shall see...

UPDATE: Wow, that was a fantastic match. The second half of that 2nd set, especially the tiebreak - really great. Murray really cranked it up, and yet... Nadal was like, gravity. Pulling him back to earth... very nice. Looking forward t the final tomorrow.

RR out
