Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Today I went to the Qatar Open tennis tournament. Watched Andy Murray (world #11) take down a Belgian player 6-0 6-2, then I looked at the schedule to see what other games were playing and relaized that one of my favourite players was at the tournament:

Daniel Nestor! The most successful Canadian tennis player of all time!

Coincidentally Nestor's match was a doubles match against Andy Murray, so I watched Murray play twice in one day. Now doubles tennis is a whole different game from singles so my money was on Nestor for sure. And he didn't dissappoint - despite Nestor never being a great singles player (his highest singles rank was #59 waaaaay back in 1999) his team quickly dispatched Murray's team 6-3 6-0.

Nestor has won the Qatar doubles title twice before, hopefully he'll make it a third this year.

I think we know each other well enough to use "tu".
