Playing through the pain …

During the 6th inning of Mets vs Miami Marlins, one of the commentators said that one of the older player had said to a younger one (I’m only half watching, multi tasking, as usual) that if you want to be a super star, not just a good ball player, you’ve to play through pains.

It’s so true.

We were 0-2 to start off but played well to win the set, retired in the second set. The new tennis ball and two older one, the contrast.

Women’s final

Pliskova is pretty and seems effortless where Kerber is like, Cinderella, hard working and that’s it. She won an award for being the nicest girl on tour.

Peking duck any one?


  • 有栈桥画面更丰满、立体[呲牙]
  • 夕阳居中,水面有栈桥,线条比较丰富,画面感强,远近的层次比3饱满的多

Getting up early to work. Face the spider by the entrance again, and some evidence of the ducks and gooses – someone is more diligent than I’m -:). Most friends rated the top one @ 7am over the third one below. A similar one from last week.

A very humid day, temp is at 70+ but sweat streaming down my little braids. 6-4 and 6-7. What do you do when the players in your group never opens a can of balls and has bad line calls consistently?

Have you tried today?

imageHere is the video. Another blink moment. This is the last shot Kerber hit to the baseline and won the semi final match. Caroline Wozniacki has challenger but chose not to use it. Everyone is wondering why didn’t Caroline challenge it? No one will hand you a victory unless you try. You’ll have to earn it.

I watched part of Wozniacki’s and Kerber’ interview. No one asked about the last point.

Michael Chang @ US Open

It’s kinda of painful to watch him 痛苦的表情. It’s just a game. Everyone on Nishikori’s team is wearing the same t shirt, with multiple logos. Not that this is unshared of, but it kind of an eyesore, very 俗气. The team leaped up after Nishikori took the second set at 4. Here is 30 min youtube of him looking back at his career.
