I went on vacation, and now I find myself not so motivated. Unfortunately, I found this article after my vacation instead of before I left for Maui. I actually was catching up on my blog reading and was perusing Literanista when I stumbled upon a link to the article.
A friend of mine is in NYC visiting family and he was able to go see Rafa beat González today at the U.S. Open. Due to all of the rain, this match was a continuation from the night before last! They are now finally getting a few more matches in late!
