Players with a fear of flying

I got back last week from a vacation. We went by airplane and I hate flying. I find it really scary. Everytime I fly I say to myself it's the last time, next time I take the train.

Then I realised that tennis players fly every week. Good thing I'm not a pro beacuse that would be a problem... I know there are some footballplayers with a fear of flying and take car/boat/train etc as often as possible to go to another country.

What about tennisplayers? Are there any players that you know of that have a fear of flying? That would be really hard.

Mutis and Haehnel.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

I didnt like it at the start but you get used to it. Some people even like flying. I think Rafa hates flying cos he likes to crawl in the dirt.

Ivan Navarro

I was surprised to hear because there was`a period in 2007 when he seemed to be playing on a different continent each week
