Took the day off.

Today was another day of non-writing. It was the final match of the 2009 US Open tennis championships in New York City -- the last grand slam of the year. It turned out to be Roger Federer vs. Juan Martin Del Poltro. Rodger was trying to make history with a 6th consecutive win at the US Open. Juan Martin, the clear underdog, was playing his first grand slam final.

Early on, it looked like Roger would roll over Delpo, taking the first set and being up a break in the second set. However, Delpo broke back and won the 2nd set in a tiebreaker. It was heaving hitting and fabulous shot making for five long sets, with Del Poltro winning in the end.

I was so happy to see a new face win a grand slam. In fact, both my pics for the singles won. Kim and Delpo. A great tournament as far as I'm concerned.

Okay, after two weeks of watching tennis, I'm ready to go back to writing. Lots of things happening on the writing front, which I will get into in detail as the week progresses.
