Cheering for Roger

Today I got faced by another annual distraction during the exams: the Australian Open. Regular readers have probably already noticed my uncoditional love for Roger Federer so it was not really surprising that a couple of hours ago, I was not to be found studying, but in front of the television screen, jumping on the couch and loudly cheering for Roger. (I like to call that my 'lunch break')

Roger found a tough opponent in the Italian Andreas Seppi, yet he managed to finish his match in three sets (6-1 7-6 7-5). Victory for Swiss class! (by the way, have a look at his beautiful new outfit!)

Some other things I noticed on the first day of playing:
* most games were quite predictable in their outcomes, no big favourites were sent home
* among the subtop, Marat Safin, Philipp Kohlschreiber and Caroline Wozniacki made a great impression
* our Belgian players won and lost: Xavier Malisse and Kirsten Flipkens made it to the next round, whereas Yanina Wickmayer may pack her bags
Who's playing tomorrow? Andy Murray, Lleyton Hewitt, Fernando Gonzales, Rafael Nadal, Ernests Gulbis, Christophe Rochus and Steve Darcis (from Belgium), Serena and Venus Williams, Agnieszka Radwanska, Elena Dementieva and many more.


  1. Oh Rog is a yummy creature! What a nice distraction!

  2. Indeed, you won't hear me complain! ;)
