Rain poured down today in Monte Carlo but apparently it couldn't delay the inevitable. For me, a non-Fed fan, there are certain things I can count on. One of those things used to be that I didn't have to pay attention to one half of the bracket because I could count on Fed, much to my chagrin, of blitzing his way into the finals. With his recent, uh, troubles, I downgraded that to ok, you don't have to pay attention until the semis. But here we are, heading into the quarterfinals of Monte Carlo and Fed is gone.
Maybe it's my weird perspective as a non-Fed Fan that I just don't see what all the hoopla is over the loss. Fed's worst surface, four days after he got married, against a guy who has only been improving the last month and considers clay his best surface. Chalk it up to a surprising, but not shocking result. Said the always adorable Stanley, "I am a bit embarrassed to celebrate it."
Anyway, enjoy the honeymoon in Monte Carlo, Vavrinecs. I hear there's some wonderful shopping.
