    Rince, I have a Place du Teatre at home too. Does it depict a girl with a red top carrying a green bag and signed by AMO???

    But hopefully it'll be longer than the womens' final which lasted for a meagre 59 mins (0-6, 3-6)!!
    Go Roger!

    Womens' matches are frequently a joke. Hard to believe that they get the same prize money despite playing shorter matches.


    Well done to Nadal, who won the epic 5-setter. Easily the highest quality tennis match I have ever seen.

    Sigh, It is sad to see Federer choke time after time against Nadal . Must be psychological

    I was amazed (both in the semi-final and the final) by Nadal's ability to scramble balls back from really difficult positions and hit them somewhere where he was completely back in the point.

    I'll post a photo sometime soon, but I don't think so.

    Definitely not the same artist I'd say. Images of sketches attached.

    Venus v Serena Wimbledon final *yawn*

    Was interested to hear that they were seeded 2 and 3. I thought that 2 and 3 were in the same half of the draw, meeting in the semi's with the other semi being 1 v 4 assuming the seeds get through that far.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    I really hope Federer does his usual job of crushing Roddick. I really hate that guy, he constantly demeans the umpires and linespeople and he should be fined for it, since they can't insult him back.
    Avatar is a game I played at a party and finished by castling queenside for checkmate, and has a pleasing degree of symmetry.
