I have been in the hospital for the past 5 days, including the 4th, with a bad infection in my shoulder. I'm all better now, ready to post all the past week's results in the wide world of wheelchair sports.

- Wheelchair Tennis - French Open - Satoshi Saida (JPN) crushed world #1 Michael Jeremiasz (FR) on the Frenchman's home turf 6-2, 6-3. Esther Vergeer (NED) continued her amazing unbeaten streak, dominating Florence Gravellier (FR) 6-1,6,2

The Frenchies did well for themselves, getting an athlete into both the Men's and Women's finals. It's just to bad they couldn't close the door. Meanwhile, David Wagner (USA), world's #1 quad beat Giuseppi Polidori (ITA) 6-2, 6-1 and won his third title in '06.
