Blogging live from the AIG Open


Now No.2 seed Tommy Robredo from Spain is on court against American Vince Spadea

Blogging live from the AIG Open


Local favourite Takao Suzuki just brought the house down with a victory against Waske & will play World No.1 Roger Federer in the next round tomorrow.

AIG Open Update

Federer is through and will play Wesley Moodie tomorrow (Thursday) at 12:30.
Local hopes are carried by Takao Suzuki, who pulled off a shock against Paradorn Srichaphan. If he can get past the limited Alexander Waske, it would set up the dream quarter-final: against Roger Federer.
However my favourite, Andy Murray, went out to former champion, Jiri Novak. At least I have Tim Henman to cheer on; he is also in action tomorrow.

AIG Open 2006

Today Roger Federer kicks off his campaign at the AIG Japan Open Tennis Championships in Ariake, Tokyo. The Number 1 seed is on court at 13:30 and shouldn’t have too many problems against the Serbian qualifier Viktor Troicki.
I’m hoping to get to some of the games, especially as two Brits are in action: Tim Henman, who won his opening match yesterday, and rising star Andy Murray, the only player (other than World No.2 Rafael Nadal) to have beaten Federer this year. The venue, 有明テニスの森 (Ariake Tennis Forest Park) is just next to my apartment building, so I have no excuses for not going along to cheer them on.

Go here for the latest scores and order of play.

No Longer an Outpost.

Cafe do Craque Propels Tachikawa City into the Limelight – Okay, that is a blatant lie.

F1 > soccer/metric football. That’s right, futbol will always be second fiddle to the one true sport; F1. No use arguing, that’s the way it is. Now, thanks to Cafe do Craque, i’ll hopefully find others who share my love – No heckling from the peanut gallery! Anyway, Cafe do Craque gets my money on July 16th for the French Grand Prix.

Cafe do Craque: Menu Highlights:

  • ペペロンチーネ :: たっぷりニンニクと唐辛子の定番パスタ
  • ペンネアラビアータ :: 長時間煮込んだピリ辛ソースをペンネにからめました
  • レッドカレー :: ココナッツミルクたっぷりのカレー。この辛さはやみつき。
    決め手はターメリックの香りです
  • コロナ エクストラ
  • ロングアイランドアイスティー !!!!!!!!!!

The drinks menu is long.

Cafe do Craque: Schedule.

Okay, okay they show more metric football than F1, but that still doesn’t make soccer > F1. /me is in denial. Oh, and, if you live in or around Tachikawa and would like to join me on July 16th, let me know.
