Haiku Friday #24 - Tennis Time Again

After a slow start
Fish came back and won the first
set ... Nalbandian

has his work cut out,
though he plays well from behind
Fish is on his game!

Tommy Haas pulled out
Roger Federer has the
day to relax now.

Women play tonight!
Semi-final matches should
be exciting as

Russians play against
one another ... as do Serbs.
All these players ROCK!

Addendum after the fact:
For any 'tennis fans' out there who
missed the rest of the Pacific Life Open Competition,
I continued to 'ku and post photos about tennis
at Small Reflections on
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday
and when the Sony Ericsson Tournament (in Miami)
begins on Saturday, I'll probably be
writing about it too ;--)

You've put a smile on my face--I know nothing about tennis, but I do know joy when I see it...

Karen – I’m always happy to generate a smile (and/or laughter) because both are ‘healthy’ responses. Yup … joy is right!

The Fish-Nalbandian match was tense to the very end with Nalbandian taking the 2nd set in a tie-break after Mardy failed to convert a few ‘break points’ in several games … something that often causes Fish to lose his concentration and the match. The 3rd set was ‘exciting’ and went to a tie-break as well (something Nalbandian is better at than Fish) … but Mardy was victorious and will play Roger Federer in the Semi-Finals! This is all the more nifty since all the other Americans (especially Roddick and Blake who many thought might be in the ‘finals’ this year) are out of the running.

I hope you’re having a wonderful Easter weekend!
