Federer collapsed before September 11

This is my entry to Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 15. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Sheryl of Contest Fan.

I went to bed last night and never forget the things playing in my mind not because it’s September 11 today, though partially it is, but that’s because there’s so many things will happen on 9-11-11. It just so happen that there’s some important events that will unfold on the wake up of the 9/11 commemoration. But rest assured that this post is not heading that way, this is about the semi-finals of the US Open.

Anyhow, I slept without finishing the event last night after Roger Federer lost steam and give Djokovic a breather by giving Nole the third and fourth set after a great win in the first two sets. Fedex squandered his chances of adding another grand slam title and if he does, he will be the first to win six titles at Flushing Meadows. But that is history already and the road ahead of him is a lot harder since he is already 30 and there are plenty of younger resurging players out there. And since 2003, this year was Federer’s first that he hasn’t won a grand slam title since his first major at the Australian Open.

I already signed off after Djokovic won the fourth set at 6-2 yet still hoping that Federer will turn the contest over and that’s what lingers in my mind of how its gonna be. I read the news earlier this morning that indeed it was an agonizing five set loss. What’s more frustrating and disappointing is that Federer is so close to making his 24th Grand Slam final appearance when he wasted two match points on his serve at 5-3.

At first I thought history repeats itself, and it did. It all started in the quarter-final game with Tsonga who eliminated Roger Federer at Wimbledon. But this time it was a sweet revenge by the Swiss maestro and so does with Djokovic. Nole was eliminated at Roland Garros by Federer in the semi-finals, snapping his 43 straight wins and this time he avenged that loss and who is trying to win a third Grand Slam tournament in a year. The court at the Flushing Meadows was painted with white 9/11/01 to remember and commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks of the WTC.

At the end of the day, it wasn’t that bad after all because the day started with ERUF 161 Run for a cause and sure it will be a whole lot of fun and a success.

Happy Silver Anniversary ERUF people and friends and continue saving lives for years to come so that others may live.

  1. i guess it's novak's era right now. he played well and his win over roger (and rafa in the finals) was well-deserved. to win three straight games over federer when the later is already 2 games ahead of him showed his heart. hubby is a fan of roger but we had to concede that novak is the star of tennis at this time.

    thanks for participating borris. good luck and have a great day ahead!
