First time Federer hasn't made a QF in 10 years.
Nadal out in straights in the first round. This is a HUGE upset! Where the hell is everybody?
Nadal isn't looking too hot. It would be excellent to see Rog take him out in the quarters, if Nadal even makes it that far.
Opening day! Best two weeks of the year! I was at the tournament last year. Saw Djokovic on Centre, stayed in Kensington ,and had the time of my life. Wish I was there.
Anyone here in any of the patriotic societies (the Cincinnati, Colonial Wars, SAR, etc)? I am in the midst of preparing my application for the Colonial Wars. The dinners/balls are black tie/white tie optional. I am wondering what anyone's experiences have been. Thanks
Thought this might be an interesting discussion -- what do you all think of a player wearing tennis whites on a public court? A little history -- 'tennis whites' were and are still required at most country clubs, where lawn tennis originated in the 1880's. Up until about 1930-or-so, almost every tennis tournament required the players to wear tennis whites, because the tournaments were held at these clubs. Nowadays, Wimbledon is the last of the grand slams to be held at a...
What the hell does everyone here do with their Christening cups? You know, those silver cups with your name and other cute shit engraved on them. Mine is actually my great uncle's of the same nam. It seems kinda weird to drink out of it, as it has engravings of little kid crap all over it, but I'm sort of opposed to the whole Martha Stewart type idea of Putting Things on Display. Looking for some creative ideas.
I have my 5th great grandfather's cane. It has his name engraved on the handle, and his name is the same as mine. I get a kick out of using it every now and again. I am in my mid-twenties and dress prettly plainly most of the time. Jeans, plain shirt (t, polo, button-down), and plain tennis shoes. Sometimes I just feel like using it so I walk up to the grocery store and buy a few pieces of fruit or something, or to the coffee shop. I am very comfortable using it in these...
Hey everyone, wondering what you all think about bronze watch cases. I picked up one yesterday without really realizing it -- just thought it looked very nice and unique with a brown/burnt orange wristband. Turns out there isnt much discussion out there about them and they are almost entirely absent from the usual conversations regarding cases/bands (various golds, silvers, titanium, etc). Wrist Watch Review has been following a few models that have come out this...
Thanks. I actually realized the case is brass, not goldtone, which makes me happy -- and explains why i didnt think about it at the time. Brass is more 'rugged' looking. There arent any discussions about brass watches at all on SF.
