The Australian Open 2008 - Day 6

Greetings Readers

"Come on!!"

Epic - since "the battle" early morning our time (Mountain Time Zone) and very, very early morning for the match that concluded Day 6 of the Australian Open. 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, 6-7, 6-3.

I am not going to describe the match since that match was the match of the tournament, so far. More so for the Aussie for the Australians. One of my favorite tennis guys to watch. And Hewitt was playing Baghdatis. Baghdatis is pictured in front and left on today's blog with Hewitt in the background fuzzy. This was when he was leaving the court for the final time in the Australian Open 2008. Hewitt was not gloating and saw the decimation of his playing upon his opponent in Melbourne Park.

I started to tear up seeing from this point on. I knew that Marcos was emotionally spent and I would be doing the same thing. Especially when this tennis match concluded about 4:45 AM (Melbourne Time).

The final scene was Baghdatis walking up the steps to the locker room with his hands in face trying to keep the cameras probably from seeing him crying and broadcasting to the world.

Two players, most notable for their play/personally at the Australian Open for years battled out for almost 5 hours and unfortunately, only one could stand and be held as a winner.

"Come On!"

Now, it snowed last night and it looks like that we got about 2 to 3 inches accumulation here in the southern part of Denver.

until the next time
