So who's gonna curse first?

I am waiting for CBS Sportsline to show the high-res photos... but maybe I should have lunch :P
Fuck! Why did it have to be Lucie as early as the 3rd?!?!?! I even liked the outfit this year...

*********************************************

Ok, I've had lunch (which at this hour is almost dinner) and I'm watching the Hamburg final to cheer me up... LOL. Still no high-res photos up on Sportsline. I've read Amélie's interview and she says she still has problems with adductors (which she injured training in Rome as I reported here) and that she's impatient to get back to best form.

*yawn* so the mess of a year I was talking about here seems to get even messier... *sobs*

I was thinking of watching the Hamburg final too. I'm sure the US network coverage of RG today (yes, tape-delayed) will show only Sharapova.

As for RG and Mauresmo--I think I put my brain in "park" regarding that. I think my brain thought she'd lose early or go all the way. So today--well. It happened. She's 27, she's coming back from surgery, perhaps she's injured.

Ah hell. My dvd of the Hamburg final is blank. The awards ceremony (on another disc) is fine, but the match disc is blank. *grumble*

You can dowload it on eMule. The quality is great, the file is about 2Gbs. I would send it to you, but I don't think it's faster than downloading it on eMule.

Ok, on to the bagel set now... *licks lips* ;)

Nadl said...

you like to quote yourself lately, huh?

marija said...

did anyone see her lady during rg?

Bumsby said...

@nadl: I'm a reasercher, I'm used to quoting... I quote everyone, sometimes myself, too ;)

@Marija: I was wondering if anyone saw her, too... but I think the rumors about them splitting were false. Amé still wears the necklace and the ring. (Btw is your name Dutch? I ask because of the "ij")

Bumsby said...

(Btw I wanted to quote my injury report in particular because a lot of people didn't believe me and thought it was just a rumor)

Nadl said...

well i just wanted to say that :P

btw i won't make a blog entry at my blog until amelie stops joking, so never again probably *haha*

Bumsby said...

What do you mean "stops joking"? *thinks*

Nadl said...

well she was 3:0 up in BOTH sets.. and if safarova makes the next 6 games (in the first) i think that's kinda joking! and i'm sick of it

Bumsby said...

Perhaps you mean "choking"? *tape*

Nadl said...

yeah whateva :p

Bumsby said...

I thought you suddenly didn't like that fact that she was funny LOL (because she jokes a lot, too, besides choking LOL)

Nadl said...

oh sorry for my typo! but i can't stand her chokes anymore.. everytime the same :/

marija said...

my name is serbian. and “serbia” is srbija in original. So we have that “ij”.
i also don't believe they split i was just wondering where that woman is ;-)

Bumsby said...

She's probably where she was last year... but don't forget Eurosport is careful in showing her (of course) and we didn't see much of her last year as well. If I remember well she was sitting far from "the gang" and we only saw her in a Getty image.

Spank said...

Bumsqueak says: My name is potito which in the original is potato, it has no gender unless it is grown in stoney soil..

j/k

I was just about to say what a lovely name "Serbian" is but then I realised what you meant.. *head>desk*

I think it's time for me to go to bed :D

Bumsby said...

You can name someone "Serbian" I think... we have "Italia" and "Francia" as first names in Italy. I know it's crazy and rare, but we really do LOL So the British could have "Serbian" :P

Spank said...

The british equivalent is "scum" or "yob"..scum is my first name.

Spanky "shut up" Scum in full :D

Nadl said...

where's the "smith" spanky?

BARBIE said...

I don't know whether I should say it or not, I mean, is it appropriate to say this here, I don't know *shrugs*

But here in India, they were showing that Mary de Villepin was watching Amelie's match against Lucie *tape*

I recognised her as soon as she was shown and the commentators also said that she is Mary de Villepin, daughter of the ex-Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin :p

Bumsby said...

Are you kidding?!?!? I'm waiting for someone to upload the match... this deserves another post hehehe ;)

Thanks for the news!

BARBIE said...

I am not kidding Bums, I just said what I saw

Now the main thing is that whether you will see the same things in the match what I saw, I mean, it can be different in differnt countries because I didn't see it in Eurosport because Eurosport is not broadcasted in India

So, you may not see it *shrugs*

Spank said...

The French tv channel that the BBC get their coverage from never showed this!!!
They have been scrupulious not to show anything other than Loic in her matches.

Her good friend Mary Pierce was there the other day watching Amelie's match and they never showed her!
If it wasn't for Nadl's photo I'd never have known Mary was there in Paris!

Quote Barbie:"I don't know whether I should say it or not, I mean, is it appropriate to say this here, I don't know *shrugs*

Barbie...pull yourself together.. look who you are talking to..
we've just been kicked off a tennis forum for our smutty and inappropriate discussions of Amelie's private life..We Demand More SMUT! :D

Quote Barbie: I recognised her as soon as she was shown and the commentators also said that she is Mary de Villepin, daughter of the ex-Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin :p

You are such a fan! :D *hugs*
Never mind the quality of play or the outfit, lets get down to the really important details about Amelie!! :D ;)

Spank said...

I want Indian tennis tv coverage from now on! :)
What channel is it please, Barbie?

Bumsby said...

LMAO @Spank's criteria for recognizing a true fan ROFL

I think Eurosport will show her all the time as I'm sure G has put a million dollar price on her head which she can't wait to see on a silver plate :P

Poor Marie!!! Help her!!! US Army I know you hate France and all but she's a human being... please help avoid her cruel fate as G's victim *scared*

BARBIE said...

See, that means the coverage differs from country to country

Spank didn't see it, I mean, BBC never showed it that Mary Pierce was there, which was shown here, she was there in the first match when Amelie played Laura Granville on Suzanne Lenglen court

BARBIE said...

And about recognising de Villepin, it's because I have seen her photos many times and with every intimate details, that's why I recognised her as soon as she was shown *grins*

BARBIE said...

It's a regional channel, Spank *smiles*

Spank said...

..and isn't the UK part of the commonwealth empire? As soon to be owned by India Inc?! :D
If it's regional and the UK is a region of India Inc. then I should be able to get it here too :)

Bumsby said...

*Spanky longing for the good old times when the Brits had the Indians at their beck and call*

... LOL

BARBIE said...

Spanky, this time if the Brits want to make India under their command, it's me standing between the Brits and my motherland *armed*

Spank said...

No, you are not getting the joke :D
The UK will shortly be owned by India (corporate) :) The tables will be turned :D

BARBIE said...

I understood Spank ;)
