It’s only the fourth round! I wasn’t even ready to start watching this damn tournament. Not to mention that I apparently no longer have the Tennis Channel due to switching to Verizon FiOS. And Nadal is out already? The guy who has NEVER LOST at Roland Garros just lost to ROBIN SODERLING — who the fuck is that? I woke up and he was down 2 sets to 1 and then I could barely stand watching the 4th set due to the disgustingly terrible justin.tv stream. ARGH. Nadal got DEMOLISHED in that deciding tiebreak. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!?! This has to be one of the greatest upsets of all-time. Across all sports. Holy shit.

So I guess this is Federer’s chance to win, right? I can’t imagine the waterworks if Andy Murray continues his dominance over Fed and beats him in the final. Federer would drown in a pool of his own tears and clay. What would be even more incredible would be if Andy RODDICK beat Federer in the quarterfinals. Hahah, that was a good one. No really, if that happened I’d think a hole had ripped in the space-time continuum.

I still can’t believe that just happened, but it only serves to illuminate the amazingness of Federer the last 5 years. The guy makes the semifinals every. single. time. And usually the finals.
