Rendy Lu Yen-hsun rocks Andy Roddick's world

Sorry for not updating this blog for awhile.

Instead of staying up late at night for World Cup, I caught up with tennis. After all, it's Rendy Lu Yen-hsun's important match against Andy Roddick, last year's Wimbledon finalist, in round 4.

Congrats to Rendy who sent Andy Roddick packing with an impressive 4-6, 7-6 (7/3), 7-6 (7/4), 6-7 (5/7), 9-7 win!

The unseeded Rendy become the first Taiwanese to make the last eight of a Grand Slam.

Currenly ranked 82nd in the world, he also became the first Asian man to make the last eight at the Wimbledon since Japan's Shuzo Masuoka back in 1995!

Rendy will now face Novak Djokovic, the third seed, in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Hopefully Rendy will take advantage of this opportunity as Djokovic is said to be unfit due to illness.
