    Never mind. I just learned that it was on 360 but they didn't update their listing so it was showing as something else on the channel guide. That might actually be more infuriating.

    God Damn It. I should have just tuned in to every channel just in case.

    Come on Murray....I have to go get groceries...that's going to take at least an hour....stretch your match out so I don't miss Raonic Federer. I'll stick with my Federer predition...I called Nadal to win yesterday...I don't want to jinx things.

    Man, the women's draw is weak. I'm watching world #3 Halep and her shots are so soft. It's really a wasteland after Williams and Sharapova. If Genie gets the mistakes out of her game she could easily take anyone outside of the top 2 and that's even more true for Madison Keys.

    Pretty uggly Women's final into the third set at Indian Wells. Five breaks of service in a row at one point and another of 4. Jankovic should have beaten Halep by now but she choked very badly when serving for the match in the 2nd, ended up losing it 7-5.

    Fognini upsets Nadal in 3rd round of Barcelona Open

    http://www.thescore.com/atp/news/751492

    Things are looking really good for Djokovich to win his first French Open. Nadal isn't dominant on clay anymore and Federer (Novak's only real rival at this point) has no advantage over him on the surface. Novak just won the clay court Monte Carlo Masters, his third consecutive tournament win. He's on fire and I think if he carries this through the French Open, there's every reason to think he could become the first to sweep the Grand Slam in Men's single since Laver in 1969. I think we're seeing history in the making here. This has the makings of one of the all time great tennis seasons.

    Murray retires from the Italian Open which effectively means that Murray and Djokovich will not have a confrontation on clay before the French Open. Murray has emerged as this season's best clay court player at 10-0 but Djokovic will tie him with an identical 10-0 record if he takes the Italian Open.

    Djokovic cruised passed Federer in two pretty easy sets in the final after also beating Ferrer and Nishikori. Got love his chances in the French even against Murray.

    I haven't played since I was a teenager but I did enjoy it a great deal. Been meaning to take it up again.

    Djokovic up two breaks in the third and up 2 sets to none in the French Open quarters. Nadal's played better than the score would indicate. He's made Djokovic work for everything but even at his best he's not quite good enough to beat Novak anymore (is anyone?) and now the wheels are starting to fall off. In typical Novak style, he just gets stronger as the match goes on. Rafa needed to pocket the first two sets to have a chance at the upset. Pretty much over now. This is the first time Rafa had dropped the first two opening sets at the French Open and there's an outside chance that he'll fall right out of the top 10.
