Waiting for the big match tonight between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the final of the Australian Open Tennis Championship. This will be played at a reasonable time in Melbourne but rather late for us on the West Coast of North America. I stayed up for the William sisters final at midnight last night. I was disappointed that Venus lost but Serena certainly deserved her win. Exciting times
the next morning – WHAT A MATCH! – it went down to the wire in 5 sets. My hero emerged victorious. Spoiler alert – Roger was the worthy winner. Rafael Nadal didn’t deserve to lose, but he did. Tightly fought all the way.
I could hardly put down my knitting as the match seesawed back and forth. I thought that the woman sitting behind Roger’s wife was knitting also but when I got a better look I decided what I thought might be knitting was a set of worry beads. My current knitting shown on the right below is quite uninteresting compared with the tennis.
p.s. Katerina couldn’t bear the excitement and meowed to go out halfway through the 5th set.
