At 25, Rosol is at the traditional make-or-break age for a tennis player - not a bad time to have your best-ever Slam result. Rosol went through qualifying to reach the main draw and took out Melzer in the second round. Chela, even at 30, is never a good draw on clay. Rosol did well to take a set off of him.

With company coming next week, it's been a big cleaning day at our house. Our home looks tons better AND we have the rest of the weekend to relax. We're hoping to get out for a hike but thunderstorms are predicted for the rest of the weekend. Just what we need - more water. (It's been a very wet spring in Vermont.)
