Upsets and Drama

I have been glued to the French Open this weekend. However, I have been watching The Tennis Channel all morning and via ESPN Radio I heard that Rafael Nadal lost to Robin Söderling a few minutes ago. The Tennis Channel was and is showing a match between Davydenko and Verdasco. How do you like that? I guess when they had a shift change right in the middle of Andy Murray versus Marin Čilić and McEnroe left, he probably left to go cover Nadal’s match, which will probably be shown later today on NBC. I am bummed that Nadal lost and bummed that I didn’t get to see it live.

The Tennis Channel is also streaming live on the internet and the video is high quality, but I wanted to see the top seeds’ matches.

Not only did Rafa lose today, but Ana Ivanović lost to the weirdly screaming Victoria Azarenka from Belarus.

Yesterday, Serena Williams was involved in some tennis drama when she hit a ball at her opponent, Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, and the ball hit Sanchez’s arm. The umpire didn’t see it. As a professional, Sanchez should have admitted it and lost the point. She didn’t. Serena won the match anyway.
