    So proud =)

    I’m really liking this HC season so far…

    And am I crazy to think that Johny could beat Tomas today???

      Um … it’s Tomas, so no 🙂

        AND HE DID IT!!!! Wins over Berdie AND JoJo this week????? HAPPINESS. Seriously…that’s some awesome awesome stuff. Though that’s enough now. Roddick needs to win the tourney, so unfortunately I will have to root against my super-sized love tomorrow.

        ALSO, apparently there was a cake. Just found a picture and for some reason thought it was super important to tell you IMMEDIATELY.

        mmmmm, cake.

          WHAT? That cake is a paltry excuse for a cake … I feel as if they could have done something way better. aka WAY LARGER.

          Cake isn’t cake if it’s not ginormous and full of delicious fatty goodness.

            I still think it’s better thank Lleyton’s cake, which literally looks like halfway through the match the tournament was like “oh crap, this could be his 500th win” and sent the ballboys to buy some betty crocker mix from the deli….

            And I will constantly think it’s 2001-2003 and Hewitt is Roddick’s main rival and everything Roddick does has to be better than what Hewitt does. I don’t let go easily/
