Comings and Goings

Roland Garros Update:

Of the top 32 men entered in the tournament, 13 are already gone. The highest seeds who lost after three rounds are #6 Da-veed Nalbandian of Argentina, who lost to 21 year-old French wildcard Jeremy Chardy after winning the first two sets (Chardy won 3-6, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-2) and #7 James Blake, went down to 19 year-old Latvian Ernests Gulbis in four sets.

On the women's side, 12 of the 32 seeds are gone as of this writing. Must be a bad time to be the sixth seed, as #6 Anna Chakvetadze also lost in the 2nd round to Estonian Kaia Kanepi in straight sets. The big surprise of the tournament (well, so far...) is former champ and 5th seed Serena Williams going out in the third round after losing to Slovenian Katarina Srebotnik, again, in straight sets.

Turning out to be an interesting tournament, this RG is.

Ok, now that we've gotten that out of the way, let me just give out my yearly moment of remembrance of Jeff Buckley's passing.

And welcome the newest addition to the family. My 1-day old niece! She's my brother's first baby:

She's adorable.
