Have not written for a few days due to social commitments and late nights (of tennis). The past few days have been unbelievable…the most notable being yesterday where Mats’ fellow Swede, Robin Soderling, defeated Goliath in convincing fashion. It is worthy to note, that this is the first time a player has defeated defending Champions in back-to-back years at Roland Garros (Nadal last year) since Mats had in 1984 and 1985 where he defeated Yannick Noah and Lendl respectively (thanks to Greg Sharko from tennis channel for that bit of information). Robin was hitting the ball so hard and looked such at ease. Good luck to him!
On other notes, filmed a three minute spot for Game Set and Mats which aired last night! Lorenzo Fonzeworthy was the alter ego. Dlouhy and Paes keep cruising as they defeated the Polish team of Frystenberg and Matkowski 6-1, 6-3 and are now in the Semi-finals. Good luck to them as well! Mats and I have also been discussing of how to create the ulimate WOW experience here at the French. We are in the process of putting together a dream getaway, so if anyone is interested please shoot us an email. Bright sunny skies today should be a great day for tennis! Nadal plays in two hours!
