Whatte match ....

the match played yesterday (is it y'day or today or both?) between Lleyton Hewitt & Marcos Baghdatis was a cliffhanger match. 282 Minutes sheer / pure tennis. End of it i liked Baghdatis's attitude towards the game where kept denying the ice cold Hewitt the match point some 5 times. End of it he was in tears while leaving the court at 4:34 am AST.

pleasure watching tennis ....

that too in the newly installed Set-top box at home (chennai has Conditional access system) and i was avioiding to bite the bullet to move from FreeToAir channels to paid channels ....
