I'm biasedly thrilled that Lu just took the first set (though victory is far from certain) because I support Lu on the basis that he's Taiwanese. 50% of my excitement is due to that. The other 50% is due to a combination of Verdasco behaving like a brat and the fucking Madrid crowd being sore losers. The scant applause that Lu received for some brilliant shots is downright embarrassing. Maybe they should just accept the fact that Fernando Verdasco simply ISN'T THAT GOOD.
Also, I am shocked to hear the poor umpires scoring in Spanish. When did that happen? When did Madrid pull a Paris? Fuck this shit. You fucking score in ENGLISH because tennis is an INTERNATIONAL BLOODY SPORT. At this rate, I'm gonna petition Shanghai and Beijing to start scoring in Chinese and we'll see how they bloody like it.
