Congratulations Rafa. Finally you have completed a Career Golden Slam. Vamos! I wasn't able to watch your match because I was at work but I did check the Livescores. Happy to see you lift that trophy after doggedly fought for it in the last 3 years. Vamos!

One word: Frustration.
It was really a painful match to see. She was plagued with 36 unforced errors and 9 double faults. Some of it on crucial moments of the match like on the 2nd set 3-3. Just as I was about to say that her service game had improved, she ruined it with a double fault which eventually gave Caro a 4-3 lead. That was one expensive free point. Oh well...
There are a few positives that I would take from this match. As usual, as much as she can manage it, she doesn't want the opponent to win the match on her serve. So fiercely Pova. She really fought for it and won the game to make Caro serve it out for her win. Another was that Maria was willing to change things up a bit. She had a good net game. A statistic of 16/18 which is not what you usually see from a Sharapova game. She used whatever she got to get the points instead of just stubbornly slug it out from the baseline. She knew it will only tire her out. But the UE's and DFs cost her the match really. :(
That was the end of Maria's run for the US Open 2010. I wouldn't want to say that this was a very terrible year for her. You can say that she didn't even reach QF on Grand Slam events but was able to win and also a finalist on other tournaments. Kinda counts as a terrible year. But I'm just happy she's back playing coming back from that shoulder injury. She now had finished a full year so I guess they will work on her fitness and serve. Hopefully the shoulder will hold for more years to come.
Till next year. Vamos!

I'm so excited for Fringe to start. 21 more days to go. There are a lot of easter eggs in this picture. I did not get all of them without the help of Roco. I know Fringe will get better and better.

I guess a lot of you has heard about the internet craze paid-to-click websites. The trick to this is there are quite a large number of them out there and you will never know if they are legit or not. I have been a member to many of them. Some even ask for a membership fee of about $200 when you reached the required money. I said no way. But out of all of them Neobux is the first one I received money from. I joined last June 25, 2010. fairly a newbie I know. I guess this is good. I mean after two months, who would give $2 out of air. right?
I have heard about Neobux for a long time but I didn't mind them because they pay less. Or so I thought. At least I am not yet too late. But once you get the hang of this. I mean who would give you X amount of dollars out of air. It isn't even complicated. If you spend a few hours staring at your computer, how about taking a short visit to the Neobux site?
Sign up under me. Give it about 4 clicks a day. Try it. It doesn't hurt. You'll earn money too.
