Tennis Anyone?

Carlos is a huge tennis fan. One of his default TV channels is the Tennis Channel. He is planning a trip for us to Austin to the Davis Cup the weekend of July 9th. (We're going on the cheap: Staying with my cousin, driving instead of flying, and so on).

He's such a fan of tennis that he even bought a $50 Wimbledon towel a couple of years ago.

Our friend Julie sent him this link to someone "who recreated the 2008 Wimbledon final between Nadal and Federer in paper form. The video flips back and forth between two hands holding notebook pages that show where the ball was hit and what the score was. Combined with actual player/game noises and crowd cheering, it’s such a clever final product."

It's fascinating. I've watched it a few times and can't figure out how the people know which pages to turn to in such a short amount of time.
