Whats next for Andy Roddick

Roger Federer collected his record-breaking 15th Grand Slam title today in a spectacular Wimbledon final that will not be easily forgotten by any of us who saw it. Major congratulations to the man who most pundits feel comfortable calling the Greatest Tennis Player of All Time.

On the downside, Sunday's four and a half hour final will be hard for Andy Roddick to forget also. Roddick, a major underdog who had lost to Federer 18 times in 20 meetings, looked poised to pull off the huge upset. He took the first set. He had four set points in the second that he failed to convert. He took the fourth set which launched a thrilling fifth set that would contain 30 games. Throughout, Roddick had been rock solid on his serve, never allowing Federer to break him...until the very last game of the match. It was a heartbreaker for a man who had worked so hard to get to that point.

Iran competes in 2009 Fed Cup click here see photos below

; ;
;Iranian women competed in tennis for the first time since 1972, 7 years prior to the revolution.They played a tie with Hong Kong at a neutral site in Australia. Since Iranian law requires all women to be covered from head to toe in public, the players wore their hijab on the courts where the temperature was near 100 degrees fahrenheit. If I wore a sweatsuit on a 100 degree day I'd be sweating befoe I even started playing. They lost bad.

Hong Kong defeated Iran 3-0 in Australia.

R1 Z Yang (HKG) def S TABATABAEI (IRI) 6-0 6-0

R2 L Zhand (HKG) def G Torkaman (IRI) 6-0 6-0

R3 P Sher/ H Wu (HKG) def M Najarian/ S Tabatabaei (IRI) 6-2 7-5

;The media commened the Iranian effort and made them feel how it was an honor and historical day for their country . I say you gotta be in it to win it. They should have put up a better fight. And I love the players name tabataba. If Jamaica had a bobsled team, Iran should have a womens tennis team. For the recored, this wasn't the most lobsided win in womens tennis. In 1999, Israel beat Iceland 6-0 6-0, 6-0 6-0, and 6-0 6-0. That's what you call a can of ass wippin'. In ; tennis terms, Iceland got hexabagled. Israel put 'em on ice. (See pictures below)

Grumblings of a Senseless Insomniac Breaking Down Wimbledon

There's been a less-than-pleasant bed bug infestation at the humble chateau de Bisbee/Duah. It began, as these things so often do, as a minor disturbance, a hole in the screen we thought, undoubtedly allowing in some pesky mosquitos. My negligence to nip the problem at the bud resulted in the realization of great bed bug civilizations, though, and a few nights ago I was roundly bludgeoned into a schizophrenic mess. I've remained this way since, basically-- sleeping on the living room floor while visions of human-sized arthropods and Hanley Ramirez dance through my head...

Anyway, forgive me if I write in a somewhat more-scatterbrained-than-usual fashion today. I've gotten enough sleep over the past three nights to be legally admitted into an asylum. This being said, here are some thoughts that, God-willing, might have something to do with tennis. ;
