Happy Easter (and yet another Tennis Update)

Women's final match
Kuznetsova played well, but
not aggressively

so Ivanovic
won the match in just two sets!
Now I shall watch Fish

play against the Serb,
Djokovic ... and hope it is
an exciting match!

When somebody wins,
I'll return to add a bit
more to this Haiku.

(5:15 PM addendum after the match)

Mardy Fish looked flat
in the first set after ten
hours on the courts

winning matches with
other players who were ranked
well above him ... yet

in the second set
just when Fish looked down and out
Mardy raised his game

surprising us all
once again! In a third set
Fish gave it his all

but the Serb did too.
Djokovic is champion
of this tournament!

Thought for Today
"What makes something special is not what you have to gain, but what you feel there is to lose." Andre Agassi

In case you missed these ...
there's more 'tennis' info in this week's T-13,
Friday's Haikus (here & here) and in
Saturday's post that also contains
some Easter fun!
Check them out

I love the cartoon! I haven't been watching tennis lately since it's March and that means March Madness! I'll get back into it soon enough though! Thanks for keeping us updated!

Roger – Thanks … the tennis was most entertaining this week!

Lucy – I thought it was funny when I came across it elsewhere and couldn’t resist passing it along. Yes, tennis can be exciting to watch!

Sonya – Hmmm … March Madness. I’ve heard the term, am unfamiliar with it’s meaning, but I assume it’s a ‘distraction’ and/or drain on your time … and THAT I do understand.

Nicole – Fortunately … ‘time off’ is the ‘normal state of being’ for me in retirement, but somehow life is BUSY indeed!

Karen – Thanks … and ditto ;--)

With my sister ‘on the road’ … my Easter was ‘low-key’ … spent mostly at home watching tennis as is evident in today’s post. Molly, however, did get me outside for some exercise and interaction with neighbors … and it was a gorgeous Spring day here at the beach in So Cal. My sister and I did have a pleasant ‘chat’ on the cell phone. I appreciate all of you sharing a bit of your Easter weekend stopping by Small Reflections. May you have a wonderful week!
Hugs and blessings,
