    Awesome Shoot Out.

    Absolutely great semifinal match between Milos Raonic and Ryan Harrison at SAP12 this afternoon. High level tennis.

    Shoot-out by young guns. Both came out really tense.

    Raonic elected to receive and got blitzed ending in 142 mph serve, so he gave Harrison back a 144 mph in the next game. Reached 150 mph later in match.

    Harrison seemed to have a slight edge in the first set IMHO, then Raonic pulled out the tiebreak and seemed to serve better after that as he relaxed and pulled away. (I posted this in the wrong place and then deleted. Sorry! Still learning your rules.)

    Hardest thing in tennis is controlling ones emotions and staying focused from one point to another. There was another guy who was labeled as "boring" for the longest time, he's got 14 grand slams to his name.

    that was so terrible scarey in wimby last year ... his career flashed before MY eyes, and all i could see were riddler Q-marks. Sooooooooo happy he's made in back this far :mrgreen:

    Me too! I liked it when he wore the headband for a while last year, but now that he's got a more flattering haircut ... guess he doesn't need it.

    mox nix ... IOW , "das macht nichts - 'this/that doesn't matter' :twisted:
