It is on in #Canada! Tennis Fans Be Aware!!
I knew today was going to be a special day for tennis because it is Roger Federer's birthday, and he is playing David Ferrer...That is the night match...HOURS FROM NOW. I've already watched the Williams sister's matches and Sharapova's main squeeze is in the middle of a battle which could make Roger's match end tomorrow, after midnight!!! So I'm a little excited. I don't think I'm the only one. Venus Williams is into the semi final. From what I've heard in the ESPN3/WTA broadcast she hasn't played this tournament before. She's playing like she is new to the game. Her loss of the first set was largely due to her appreciation of Carla Suarez Navarro's back hand. Carla was hitting it like no one else and she had Venus playing her game trying to imitate her incredible slice backhand...word to Venus...you have a two handed backhand!! Venus woke up and started to play her own game again. Grace, power, strategy. Excitement!
