The U.S. is playing Brazil in the Confederations Cup final, and you are at Wimbledon...what's a sportswriting girl to do??? Answer: Head into town and look for a pub.
That's what I did yesterday, and found a small collection of US fans watching the match at a place called The Common Room. Brad Gilbert was in there, watching intently.
Couldn't believe my eyes when the US led 2-0...and then Brazil became Brazil...still, no shame in beating Egypt and Spain and losing to Brazil in a hard-fought final. Landon Donovan, Tim Howard, Clint Dempsey, Oguchi Onyewu, Jay DeMerit looked like big-time players all week...entire team surely gained confidence heading into runup to World Cup...now, they have to QUALIFY!
OK, back to yellow fuzzy balls...Roger Federer and Serena Williams on court.
