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 batting lines 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. ;

Each match-up featured one of the top four seeds. In each case, the higher seeded woman advanced to Thursday's semifinals. Three of the matches were routes as Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Elena Dementieva continued their romps through the tournament. None of these three were really tested in their matches which was a little surprising since Serena was up against Victoria Azarenka who has emerged as the most exciting new star of 2009.

Federer vs Roddick in the finals is at least intriguing right

If I had bet on every sporting event in which I just knew in my gut what the outcome was going to be, ;I would be even more broke than I am now. ; We all know that Roddick is 2-15 against Federer lifetime and that Roger is playing some tennis right now that ;could be better than I have ever seen him play. ; That is why sports are so entertaining! ; Especially those decided by one game or match as opposed to a "best of" series. ; On any day, at any time, there is an opportunity for an upset. ; That's why the Confederation Cup final was even slightly exciting to me. ; I knew Brazil had a much ;better team, but on ;any given day..... ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; I knew that the Patriots were going to ;clobber the Giants and finish a historic season ;19-0. ; I knew that Tyson was ;going to knock out Buster Douglas and continue his tear through ;anyone who got in his way. ; And without a doubt, I KNEW that my Florida Gators were going to destroy a Michigan team that had lost to a division II ;school ;earlier in the year. ; ; And Sunday... ; ;I will be ;watching a cheering for the American Andy Roddick, even though I KNOW ;that Federer is going to win.............................. ;
