the devil is in the player's box!  
What. The. Fuck. Was. That.

I can't believe I woke up at 1.30 AM to watch the Federer-Safin match Marat roll over and play dead. Federer won 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 in less than two hours.

Roger won the first set in 20 minutes. Then Marat snapped out of his zombie-like state long enough to break Roger's serve and lead 2-0. But The Fed broke right back, and at 3-3, Marat took his frustration out on his racquet, not once, but twice. He broke it the second time, and I waited for the chair umpire to issue a warning. Amazingly, he didn't. Even Marat looked surprised.

The Marat Meltdown Tally:

Screams of frustration: 2
Racquets hurled: 1 (twice)
Broken racquets: 1
Muttering to self: constant, esp. during the 3rd set

There were brief flashes of the old Marat, and there was a glimmer of hope in the third set tiebreak, but Roger was simply too good. (By the way, I didn't see the Safinettes, Marat's coterie of Slavic groupies, during the match. Or maybe they weren't in the player's box.)

In other news, Anna Wintour was watching the match (from the players' box, no less) in all her stony-faced glory. The devil woman loves Roger.



Look at that picture. It makes my skin crawl. You just know the devil woman wants to foist Roger on one of her anorexic supermodels. "Mirkaaaaa, I love the sunglasses, but you could stand to lose five pounds. Okay, twenty." Turn away, Mirka. Just turn awaaaaaaay!

I don't know if she has anything to do with Roger's Wimbledon outfit, but I have to say I'm loving the gold trim on his outfits. And his bag! His bag is lovely:



Here's the complete outfit:



And here are the shoes:



This year's theme is '4'-- as in Roger's four Wimbledon titles. It does look more K-Swiss than Nike, though, don't you think?

Juan Carlos Ferrero is through to the fourth round! He defeated James Blake in four sets. Up next, he's got  the Serb Janko Tipsarevic (the man responsible for eliminating Safin in the French Open). I should be crafting a Tipsy voodoo doll right now, but I kind of like him. He's got a pierced eyebrow and tattoos--he looks more like a rock star than a tennis player. He's only 23, and he reads Dostoevski (as opposed to Marat, who is a character straight out of Dostoevski). Hmmm. Read his post-match interview here.


Coming up: The Mosquito v. Tipsy

Srsly. I'm glad The Fed won but I just want to give Marat a good beating sometimes.
