Angry Bird and Kookie Monster didn't make the cut haha. :P


I never got why Serena was called ReRe.

Ostrich has the Angry Bird right where she wants her leading 3-1! You knew it was bad news for the Angry Bird when Ostrich let out her signature squeal in the first game.

Ostrich wins the first set 6-1, loses the second 3-6.

Carlos said...

Over-slelpt thanks for the recap, Caps.

OSTRICH OSTRICH OSTRICH OSTRICH OSTRICH OSTRICH!!

Saw this message on ESPN3:

Wimbledon Update - Due to rights, the Maria Sharapova-Sabine Lisicki match will not be streamed live. The replay will be be available after 8pm ET.

Wow, what a shocker. Its not on ESPN2 nor NBC either. If I recall correctly, they changed this at the last minute. It was on the schedule of ESPN3 earlier.

Anyway, through other avenues the match is live in lower quality.

Thanks to that I missed the first four games Booooooooooooooo!

Carlos said...

Divapova isn't playing well but she still spanked Licki Bean in the first set.

Carlos said...

Lisicki is wilting. Her serve isn't there, her shots tentative, and she looks overwhelmed. Divapova leads 3-0 in the second set.

Carlos said...

That was a cake walk for Divapova.

BTW I noticed her shoulder is getting tired.
