    Hahahaha - I knew this thread was coming.

    I think that last bagel set against him is going to cause a fractured vertebrae and the shingles to come back once it finally hits him what Fed did to him. :D

    ok, sorry if that was a little harsh.

    Ja, like Roddick, Baghdatis and Nadal...Blake is SO over.

    As I read the title of this thread, a very fitting song by The Smiths came on the iTunes.
    Anyone care to guess the song title?
    Hint: the lyrics are a little bit melancholy and the title begins with the word "That".

    I reckon he should retire. I mean the guy lost to Federer! He's clearly lost it. This was his moment to shine! ;)

    Well, James DID retire in the third. He was going throught the motions, but he sure wasn't playing anymore. Who can blame him? When Fed is up 2 sets, it's time to move on to other things.

    The only thing in need of retirement is this joke.

    Okay. The Smiths song I referred to is,
    That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore.

    Thought some of you hip, retro pop kids would have gotten it.
    Guess noone was in the mood for cryptic 80's trivia.

    Later,

    Sorry bud, The Smiths were always a little too depressing for me. I guess I'm not hip. :(

    Looks like game over, Fed X'd Bags and Blake, invited them to a retirement party and they never knew it, eh? Maybe Pete will come back for a few exhibitions so Roger can re-retire him too,

    Pete went to a Garden party to reminisce with his old friends
    A chance to share old memories and play tennis again
    When he got to the Garden party, they all knew his name
    No one recognized him, He didn't look the same
    But it's all right now, He learned his lesson well.
    You see, ya can't please everyone, so ya got to please yourself

    "I don't wanna sound queer or nothin', but I think The Smiths are a sweet band." These people are tennis preppies, they aren't blue collar enough to know who The Smiths are. BTW, they were offered $5 million to reunite for Coachella Festival but Johnny Marr turned it down.
