when the olympic games ticket ballot opened, i only applied for the tennis and the swimming finals. unfortunately i didn't get any swimming tickets, but i did get three lots of tennis! i ended up selling two lots back to the olympics as i didn't want to take three days off work to just see tennis, so i kept the centre court tickets and went with a friend.
we certainly had an action packed day with serena williams up first. man, oh man, does this lady have a powerful serve. she completely pummeled poor zvonareva.
djokovic vs hewitt
hewitt played really well in the first set and djokovic was looking like he was struggling, but then he came back in the second set to completely dominate and then hewitt was the slow mover on court. amazing to see the world number one in action!
i left my friend at centre court since she wanted to see the and murray vs marcos baghdatis match, but as i'd already seen murray play at wimbledon, i was ALL about trying to get onto court 18 to see THE KING ROGER FEDERER. have i mentioned i love roger federer? no? well i certainly am now. switzerland's biggest dreamboat, fo sho.
look at his perfect hair!
ugh. such perfection. such elegance. i should stop. he and his doubles partner stanislas wawinka lost to the israeli team, but roger is such a fine player to watch. i really wanted to see one of his singles matches, but i'm so grateful i got to see him play at all!
