Roger's Cup Week

   It was a busy but fun week of tennis at the Rexall Centre at York University. Only one day of rained out matches and the final winner was Jo-Wilfred Tsonga. This was the result I had hoped for but, unfortunately, his opponent in the final was Roger Federer, another favourite of mine. It was a spectacular match but Jo-Willie was definitely the better player, winning in two sets. Attendance was up this year with several sold out sessions as most of the top players were present, so it was pretty hectic at the entrance, scanning all these tickets.

   After the final on Sunday all the volunteers were treated to a "thank-you" party. By then I was pretty exhausted (too many long sessions and too much sun) so I left quite early. The party was just getting started but I had eaten and drunk my fill so I headed home for an early night.

   Judy and the kids were over for a swim on Monday and today was tennis in the morning (after a rainy start) then Judy and I had afternoon tea at The Marleigh in Unionville. No need for much dinner tonight!
