So, I know I have not been a good blogger and keeping up with the posts the past month. I could blame work, a nagging cold, the less-than-inspiring end of the season, but still, shame on me. But now I promise to be good and keep up. OK, at least, better. Anyhoo, so, what have I missed?
In typical Muzz fashion, Andy won Shanghai, complained the season was too long, asked for a wild card to Basel, and then pulled out with an injury. I fully expect more whinging, shorts pulling, and maybe a half-decent tennis match from him at the WTF’s before he succumbs to the pressure of playing in front of his homecrowd in London. That’s probably not entirely fair of me (he did play a great match against Rafa last year), but come on, I’m not that far off.
Tsonga and Cilic picked up titles. Jo now has a good chance of making the WTF’s and Cilic showed, well, that he’s not completely irrelevant? Too harsh? Meh…
Sod has pulled out for the rest of the season. I’m surprised by how sad I am by this news. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I will never love the guy, but he was my favorite tennis “villain,” for lack of a better word. Someone I enjoyed rooting against. Now who am I supposed to root against? Berdych? But it’s only fun to hate on someone who has an actual chance of winning. Get well soon, Sod, I’m going into withdrawal with no haterade to enjoy.
