live blogging: everything but the tennis

by

TSF is up early (late?!) with you to watch the epic final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer Down Under. While we’ll be captivated by what’s sure to be high-quality tennis, we’ll be updating you with all our thoughts of apparel choices, activities in the crowd, failed Hawk Eye challenges and (one can hope) all the drama that ensues in a men’s major final.

7:31 PM, Melbourne: Could Murray look more serious walking out onto the court? We think that’s a good thing, especially since he’s been called ‘too passive’ in the big moments. And it looks like Serena has lent Roger one of her bags. Don’t you love the Fed bringing the metro to the court?! We do.

7:45 PM, Federer 1-0: The Times of London’s Neil Harman is sporting quite the sweater over the shoulders in his interview with Mary Joe. It looks looks a little more baby blue (read: “Federer”) than blue blue (read: “Murray”). Trader.

8:05 PM, Federer 3-2: These boys have seemingly already run three miles each on the court, and we’ve only played five games. It seems to be neck-and-neck in the Who-Can-Sweat-Through-Their-Shirt-First Competition. We might be in for a record in outfit changes. Don’t mind that.

8:16 PM, Federer 4-3: Chris Fowler confirms that Federer is first to change his shirt, “seven games in”. Chris must be reading TSF. Love ya and your sexy face, Fowlies.

8:44 PM, Federer 6-3, 3-2: We thought that Andy changing into the white shirt was a sign of surrender, but the Scot actually breathed a little life into his game with that last hold. We’re still waiting for a big-time fist pump, but don’t mind the camera flashes to Murray’s box over Federer’s.

9:24 PM, Federer 6-3, 6-4, 2-1: Federer has instituted the stare down. And did Chris Fowler just recite a rap written by Andy Murray? Twice?! The commentating is worse than Murray’s tennis.
