    It's 7 minutes to 10 (21:53) local time and Roger Federer is about to take to the courts to face Juan Martin del Potro in the US Open finals.

    But I've got to work tomorrow

    Should I or, shouldn't I?

    P.S. It's now 21:55 HELP!

    P.P.S You did see this magic shot, didn't you!

    I'm not one for watching grown men playing bat and ball on the television, but that was impressive!

    It's just like rounders, but with flatter rackets, isn't it?!

    like rounders, but with flatter rackets,
    "Some of the bases may be sprinkled with vinegar for blind players to smell where they are going."
    Presumably the rackets are used to sieve the sour grapes?

    That's why I never watch Tennis "live".
    I record it (Rogers PVR in Canada) and
    wait until the match is over and then Play it, with
    FF through commercials.
