FED WON. BARELY.
I am sick of posting about being cold and how cold it is and how cold it will be in a few weeks and how much I want to get away ( ahem, was I not just in Mexico?) It is Winter Carnival week here in MN. The Celebration of Winter.
Today I am celebrating that the sun is out, yes it is cold, but whatever. And you locals reading I do know and admit it isnt NEARLY as cold as it WAS when i was in Mexico. So my need to HTFU isnt maxxed out. Really.
Roger won. He lost the first 2 sets. He was NOT playing well. He had more unforced errors in the first two sets than Rafa did in his entire match yesterday against Tommy Haas.
A true champion figures out how to win even when he is having a bad day and his opponent is "treeing." ( If you dont know that term, then...it means you are ...well...in the trees...I dont know, it means you are playing out of your head)
A true champion figures out how to be ok with playing like crap and gets past the "this is not about me looking bad, this is about me getting thru this match..." clawing his way. So I think i will make it thru winter. Just get thru it. A wise coach told me that champions are made in the winter. I just wish i could do my "champion" training... then put on shorts and sandals...and I still have my down jacket on. Inside.
