day 1278 – roger surgesĀ 

no regrets staying up until 4:45am just so i can witness federer win another australian open. much of the day was spent being a nerd doing my assignment, reading articles i enjoyed. the promotion test went smoothly and nothing particular went wrong, but somehow i’m feeling strangely bad about myself. the feeling of dissatisfaction of not being good enough and unworthiness is expanding in my head. i’m losing faith in myself and losing grip on what i want to achieve. hopefully that changes when i wake up tomorrow for a fresh start to the week

day 911 – federer action

image

staying up later than late to watch federer in semifinal action. it was painstakingly difficult to watch federer go through the first two sets. it’s a rarity to see him thrown off his game, where he had some unfederer hacks. i guess he also has a knack of making the game of tennis look so effortless. he fell in a deep hole from the very beginning but i am glad he pulled out his tricks and put together a good third set. i would’ve been beyond disappointed if it was a straight set match. nonetheless federer still had a dominant aussie open

day 907 – aussie open

so jelly my friend is catching all the australian open live. i wish one day i will be able go to watch live grand slam matches especially at us open. it was my goal to watch roddick play in person, but he retired much too soon to my dismay. now i will rest that hope on a live federer match one day. i guess in the meantime i’ll settle with watching federer play his quarterfinals match tomorrow night

day 399 – prime time us open

tuning in at home to catch some second week us open action. so happy for kei nishikori who is playing best tennis of his life and making it to the semis. the djokovic and murray match had an intense first set but murray just wasn’t able to keep up with djokovic after the second. feeling really excited for Federer’s quarterfinal match tomorrow night

andy roddick forever my fave

happy birthday to my all time favourite tennis player. no matter what, he always gave his all and gave lots for his diehard fans to be proud of. i only wish he didn’t retire premature from the tennis tour so i would have the opportunity to watch him play live and potentially get his autograph. had my hopes up when he announced he would like to return to play in this year’s us open only to have my dream crushed by atp unwritten rules. nonetheless, retirement was his decision to make and as long as he is happy, i am happy for him
