Staying Up for the Australian Open

Man, I slept about 2 hours last night because I was up watching the Federer v. Tsonga quarterfinal match at the Australian Open. Hatin’ that time difference. Kudos to Federer for pulling that tight match out.

Federer won the the 2010 Australian Open over Andy Murray in straight sets last night (or early morning). That’s his 16th slam and he doesn’t show any signs of letting up at 28 years old. I love how 2/3 weeks ago people were saying it’s wide open and that there are 5-8 guys who could win. Actually that’s true, which just makes it so much more amazing that at the end, it’s still Roger. At 28, he’s still beating the young guns and winning slams. It’s just amazing, this guy is the most dominant athlete of the last decade.

Australian Open 2010

The AO is killing me. Some of the best matches are played at night at the AO which means they start at 3:30 AM here. It’s crazy, I am not getting a lot of sleep these days. Last night I wanted to watch the Murray/Nadal match but barely made it through the first set. So I went to bed but boy what a shocker this morning.
