I consider Roger Federer the greatest of all time but he’s “over the hump”. He doesn’t have the consistency that we’re used to seeing and seems to spray his shots wide more these days. I don’t expect him to win majors anymore but I expect him to get into the quarters in most if not all the tournaments that he enters. And yet he’s surprising me with his second place ranking in the world and currently in the thick of it with Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.
Novak is an unbreakable wall and yet somehow Roger managed to eke out a tie break from him. If this quality of play keeps up this could end up being one of the all time great matches of this tournament.
Thank goodness I was in the frame of mind to watch it. It’s been a restless few weeks.
I finished Batman: Arkham Knight. I liked it and I’m considering going back to mop up the remaining content to see what the Riddler has in store for me.
I finally checked out Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. It’s easily the best playing Metal Gear Solid to date but hearing the voice of Kiefer Sutherland instead of David Hayter was weird. I didn’t spend the time to replay or explore as I usually do. I didn’t even play as stealthy. I wrapped up this “prologue” within an hour and came away optimistic for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain later this year.
Then I played The Stanley Parable for an hour or so. With that, I couldn’t help but replay it several times to soak up the different paths and endings. What a novel game!
