Lindsay and Juan José watch the Andy Murray – Julien Benneteau round of 16 match in Cincinnati. Hijinks ensue.
A verdict on the Jerzy Janowicz-Julien Benneteau first round match at the Rogers Cup.
One of these days he is going to kill me.

This means that the first week of Grand Slams for me are usually filled with heart-ache, tears, and multiple therapy sessions. My hopes typically lie with 250s, which means my angst never gets an off-week.
Last week Amy shared her five wishes for the 2013 tennis season. I mostly agreed with hers, but I have a few wishes of my own:
