You can't have your cake and eat it. Or can you?
When i saw the OOP for the night matches i was disappointed. Andy on Hisense but i had no ticket. Rafa V Haas on rod laver and I had a ticket. Gasquet/Gonzo on MCA with just a ground pass required.
I knew the Gasquet match would be the best but I wanted more cake. with Rafa starting later I decided to see if i could get a ticket for the andy match. To my surprise there was loads left. Picked one up easy at 5:30 and was thinking to myself, "You can have your cake and eat it". just needed the womens match on Rod laver to last a while and I could watch Andy and then Rafa.
While watching Andy destroy Melzer I saw the scores of the womens match and all was going to plan. Gasquet was 2 sets up and thinking to myself cool, i have made the right choice here. Gorging myself on the best cake available. Then Gonzo started to come back. After the Andy match I headed over to Rod Laver to finish off my cakes. Watching the Rafa match i kept seeing the scores of the Gonzo match and knew i'd chosen the wrong pieces of cake. Rafa was winning easy, I was tired and knew Rafa would finish it off so i left. I was full but I had chosen the wrong cake today and i knew it from the off.
So perhaps you can have your cake and eat it but is it the right slice of cake.
This was gjr reporting semi live from the Australian Open.
Am very envious of you being able to have lots of cake...... only crumbs to be had here.....
