SHE PRETTY. Also she so either went abroad for schooling/went to an international school,she's got the rich Euro kid English accent down.

So when do we think Fed joins now?(Even though he's said he won't,but I want him to) Bepa's surely a pretty great example of what happens when a player actually gets to control their Twitter account instead of their agent....:))))))

Listen to JLS (clearly you're up on your Brit boyband knowledge)-She Makes Me Wanna,they've clearly followed the Jennifer Lopez rules of air travel :)

She could try hooking up with Isner,I'm sure he'd be more than willing...

*obligatory AWWWWWW* I always like Maria so much more in her "real" life when she's normal and kind of awkward (I mean that as a compliment),instead of shiny-hair,impossibly gorgeous and glamorous "brand Maria Sharapova".

Well,Mirka did get preggers pretty soon after the whole Crazy Eyes episode last time,so there may be some correlation there...;)

But there's no Serena,no Venus,no Kim and definitely no Jooostiine,THE WTA'S DEAD!! Um no,seriously,you know it's an awesome list when even Marion gets to legitimately qualify as awesome.You go Mensa!

Gotta be honest,I'm not sure there's much that would please me more than that last scenario (apart from the whole throwing yourself into the Seine ;)).And that's really nothing against Nole,as Rafa's said,it's more 'when' then 'if' he's going to get to no.1. But yeah,those were pretty big dick moves from Fabio,it was apparent to just about everyone that he wasn't going to be able to play the next match...and the histrionics,ugh.What is it that RG brings out in him?! And as for Nole losing momentum,nope I don't see it,if Fed gets through and keeps his standard up though I really do think he has a chance to win.

I just assumed that the subtitles on everyone are there mainly for deaf viewers, rather than the ATP worrying that people won't understand Rafa or whatever... Still think it's weird how low-key the coverage of the Nike exo was though,didn't there used to be a Nike Cup thing back in the 90's that was a semi-big deal and raised money for charity?

Wow I wasn't expecting this rollercoaster ride when I opened up the comments! The thing I find most confusing about the snide comments from certain members of the "tennis establishment" is that,especially considering the struggles that the tennis media is facing,surely they should be glad that there are people around who really care about the sport?? Bloggers like you and others clearly want to report on these events well (both with player access and mere practice court stalking ;)) ,and be able to provide a genuine insight into their inner workings.If there were a bunch of people getting credentials and repeatedly asking dickish or inane questions,then yeah,fair enough I'd understand why the veterans would be annoyed,but (from what I can tell) absolutely no one is doing that!Instead people are using the access to write even in an even better way about a sport they're passionate about...so where's the harm?Just because they're new or can never say they were courtside for Borg/McEnroe or whatever,it doesn't make their presence in the media room or their writing any less valid. So yeah,basically,don't listen to them C Note :) And as someone else said,the hits you get from USA Today articles are something many of the "real" journos could only dream of!

Okay,I admit it,I laughed when I first saw this result because it was just so absurd,but after reading that? Yeah feel totally sorry for him,he sounds like he has about a million different thoughts going through his head about how he should feel,how he should play etc and is at a total loss as to how to actually implement them.Eek.

LOVED IT. For those who don't know it,Comic Relief (and the Red Nose Day event)have a pretty amazing history,founded by Richard Curtis (as in writer/director of Four Weddings,Notting Hill,Love Actually etc,guy basically guaranteed a knighthood)in the 80s and now a part of Brit pop culture,and all for ridiculously worthy causes :) Also,if you haven't seen Outnumbered,YOU NEED TO.It's a show pretty much everyone I know is united in loving (a load of people are going to say they hate it now aren't they?),and kudos to Andy for getting involved again! Equally,this needs to be seen http://www.youtube.com/user/BBC#p/u/1/NW12S4-KB1I

Even though he does those Armani ads and everything,I still feel weirdly corrupted by Rafa sex face.He's too innocent,I want to see him with Goofy and Mickey back at Disneyland again...

Pretty tenuous link to this,but I can't understand for a second the whole Charlie Sheen thing. This is a man who has a repeated history of violence against women,is so wacked out that he loses his job and has his kids taken away from him by the police,in what way does he deserve any of the coverage and even glorification he's getting??Although luckily it seems like very few people are actually laughing *with* him... So yep,well done Jelena et al,this is the type of winning that actually deserves praise!:)

Austin seems like the right choice,huge crowds virtually guaranteed with it being Andy's hometown,Rafa hopefully being there etc (and this tie definitely deserves to be a sell-out). Only thing is that (same for San Antonio),surely Austin in July=pretty punishingly hot?I know these guys train for it and are all used to playing in Aussie heat,but don't know if it would make the USTA more tempted to play the tie indoors,instead of on grass like everyone seems to be saying? Also,nice celebration Andy.I was surprised by how subdued the team were though,all weekend they (especially Courier) were ridiculously calm...

If I had to make a list of 'tennis wishes',Nalby and Argentina finally getting to win Davis Cup would have to feature.Can't think of any other guy (who hasn't already won) who seems to want it more.

Well,her boobs are bigger and she seems really grumpy... Okay seriously,I know it's just the way she's standing/the dress,but if you told me she was pregnant before I saw the photo and I didn't know who she was,I...wouldn't dispute that. I'm a horrible person clearly,but was just the first thing I thought!Also,that would be the funniest explanation for the foot injury cover-up EVAH. ;) And,*that's* the Greenday musical set??
