French Open: Update

Celebrate while you can Andy. Rafa awaits!

It's going to be a hell of a semi-final round. Well, almost...

Roger Federer vs. Novak Djokovic
Andy Murray vs. Rafael Nadal

That last part is where the almost fits in. There's no way...barring Rafa breaking his leg and bleeding to death from a compound fracture...that Murray will win. No. Way. In. Hell. That. Murray. Will. Win.

Also, expecting Novak to send the former God of Tennis Federer to his early retirement, we can look forward to a Rafa - Novak final.

Roger hasn't reached a final in over 16 MONTHS. Not since he married and had kids. Sorry, Merka. You are now the Yoko Ono of tennis. Or maybe it's the babies. They are Yokobabies. We guess it's hard for a guy who won every tennis tournament ever to be all ready to go like he used to when he has adorable baby twin girls on his mind. Therefore, Yokobabies. The end of a legend.

Meanwhile, Novak is gunning for several things (from the AP wire):

- The 24-year-old Serb is 41-0 in 2011, and a win over Federer would allow Djokovic to tie John McEnroe's record for best start to a season in the Open era, 42-0 in 1984

- Add in two victories for Serbia against France in the Davis Cup final in December, and Djokovic's winning streak stands at 43 overall, three shy of Guillermo Vilas' mark of 46 in a row in 1977.

- Djokovic is seeking to reach his first final in Paris; if he were to win the title, he'd be the first man since Jim Courier in 1992 to win the Australian Open and French Open in the same year.

- If he beats Federer, Djokovic will be assured of rising to No. 1 in the ATP rankings for the first time, no matter what happens in the Nadal-Murray semifinal or in Sunday's championship match.


On the women's side - IN THE BEST NEWS EVER...Li Na has sent That Bitch Sharapova HOME. We are currently celebrating Li Na as our hero for the day.

Good Riddance, Maria, you bitch.

Look for the men's semi finals tomorrow - they should be awesome!
