… you'll ever need

Hey! Where did the mountains go?

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – If you think it looked bad inside the stadium for the end of the Flavia Pennetta – Sloane Stephens match, it was an awful lot worse outside.

There are actually mountains in the background of the pic above – etched sharply against the sky every single day we’ve been here.

At this moment, they were gone.

Kevin Anderson was out there, trying to warm up for his match with Federer in this.

If he was wearing contacts, he has eyeballs full of sand and contacts right now.


And then, a little later on, it was as though nothing ever happened – although my black rental Fiat is probably sand-coloured right now.
