A man today said that he missed the tennis in a way, as there was nothing decent on the television during the day.
The man is not thought to be a big tennis fan. It's just that he hates all the crap that they show on television. "I hate all the crap that they show on the television" he said.
The tennis made the man's life a bit more interesting. Strangers would engage in conversation about Murray's chances, about Federer's genius, and about Dementieva's knickers. People who hadn't spoken to each other in years were now united in their admiration of Andy Roddick and the Williams sisters.
But it did not last. Life for the man is back to normal. For another year.
