Are you planning on staying up late tonight to watch a tennis match? It’s very important that you both stay up and keep your television on throughout the entire event, turning the volume up especially loud during commercials. I watch tennis throughout the night, trolling the internet for replays, until the wee hours of tomorrow. But that’s me. I understand that staying up late can be taxing on old souls. For those of you with a penchant for early rest and deep sleep (for the weak), there is an new an interesting Wall Street Journal article on tennis stepping into late night. I personally enjoy switching between Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel (Leno is dead to me. Long live Conan!!!), finally resting my eyes on trivia of Jeopardy and my ears on the gentle voice of Alex Trebek. But I will glad hand that over to the ruler of Valhalla (Who is Odin?) and switch it up to watch the Swiss five-time US Open winner (Who is Roger Federer?).
As the crusty sleep forms around my eyes, I will dream about Swiss cheeses, Swiss chocolates, Swiss railcars, Swiss mountains, and of course, Swiss tennis players.
Happy watching tonight.
