French remember the Allied Invasion of Normandy in WWII
June 6, 1944…
and head to Roland Garros for the Women’s Semi-finals
Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova lived up to #2 and #3 seeds
Victoria tattooed Maria in the first set but Maria settled in and took the next two to advance
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Serena Williams rolls over Italian Sara Errani
at love and 1 – uh oh, arrivederci Sara!
And so we FINALLY get to the FINAL two
Well Sports Fans, The Red Man watched the women today and has a prediction: Serena in three sets in the Final on Saturday. He bases this prediction on the fear for Maria that she has clenched her fists so tightly throughout the tournament she won’t be able to Tweet on her new Social Channel which will in turn lead to anxiety that will affect her service game in the Final. The Red Man foresees double faults on the red clay courts for Maria. Pretty will be in her corner though and will hope that Maria’s perseverance in the face of adversity in the past lean years will win the day. The old woman Slow likes to pull for the favorite so she will Tweet for the younger Williams Sister. Should be lively at Casa de Canterbury.
Get me outta here Percy…I’m sure I’ll need my strength for the Nadal match against Djokovic tomorrow…be still my heart.
Paw Licker Annie can’t see a thing with this Comfy Cone on her head – lucky her
There’ll be a lot of cheering going on at Casa de Canterbury tonight! Better get your head under that pillow, Red. Poor Paw Licker Annie! She’ll have to stand front and centre to see anything 😉
Let the good times roll! Rafa ROCKS!! 🙂
Happy French, Happy Tennis, and God Bless America!!
Absolutely, Church Organist!! Let the good times roll!! 🙂
Has Red been out on the courts himself? Love to see him as ball boy.
You probably wouldn’t be surprised to know that Red has been out on the tennis courts with Pretty who is a real tennis player. Pretty has taken Red many times with her when she was able to take the Pack to her Monday night tennis lessons. He loved to race out onto the courts and run around and create general chaos! 🙂
Poor PL Annie! She’d probably be as confused as Ma if she could see anything anyway!!! Hope the Casa de Canterbury enjoy the rest of the Open and have plans for recovery on Sunday. 😀
A VERY WET, THIS IS THE SECOND HURRICANO IN MY SHORT LIFE Poppy and Ma
Yes, Paw Licker Annie isn’t a real fan, either, but she’s rarely in charge of the remote!
Oh No, Oh No – not another HURRICANO in Pennsylvania??!! That ain’t right, and we are hoping that will be uneventful for you and Ma!! Please keep us posted…stay dry! Paw Snaps and Twirls to you both!! 🙂
It’s just a heavy duty rainstorm. Doesn’t look like we’ll loose electricity this time around. Your Poppy is not happy about going outside to do the important duty, but Ma says I must. Why does she get to stand on the porch under the roof??? Well, I left a deposit in the cellar just to spite the old grump. 😛 Didn’t stop her from giving me a good bully stick to while away the time indoors. Maybe she’s not so cross after all!
Sending more of those virtual liver snaps to nibble on during the match!
Oh Miss Poppy we have had rain here for the past three days and ALL of us HATE going outside when it’s wet so you can just imagine how aggravated your Ma would be with FIVE dogs that avoid the outdoors, can’t you?? 🙂
So glad you won’t be without electricity – that’s when you know it’s really bad.
Hugs and kisses from The Red Man
Silly shallow-minded me; I seem to have had a blonde moment. 🙂 When you said D-Day, my first thought was Diva Day at the French Open! Turns out Mademoiselle Williams was really more than poor Miss Sharapova could handle. And speaking of too much to handle, we watched your Gamecocks handle the Tar Heels right up to the end today. Sorry about the loss, but we’ll be pulling for you tomorrow.
Oh Miss Harper Lee, I was so bummed by the Gamecocks losing that I was unable to visit the other games yesterday but will check to see how LSU did, too. I want to be sure I have the right purple and gold outfit picked out, just in case. 🙂 Yes, and Miss Williams is such a Diva that I can see how easily you could be confused about D-Day…:) I will look forward to your black and white Sunday!
LSU will be making a little trip to Omaha. There’s still hope for your Gamecocks, but just in case I am certain that your purple and gold outfit will be divine!
Congratulations on your trip to Omaha!! If the Cocks don’t make it through this year, I will keep my purple and gold outfit and wave it during the World Series!! 🙂
