Roger smart scheduling 10 commandments

1. Don't let agents or full time coaches bother you with their own priorities and keep control of the agenda
2. Focus on big tournaments and prepare them accordingly
3. Put the pressure on your Davis Cup team by skipping some 1st rounds in order to push them to develop other players
4. Exaggerate injuries before big titles to defend like US Open or Masters Cup, they will be your legacy
5. Take time in advance to explain your schedule and withdrawals, people will forgive you more easily
6. Hire your girlfriend as a PA, you'll make your priorities hers
7. Play a few smaller tournaments with good appearance fee, they are still a better training than exhibitions with singers
8. Focus on injury prevention in your fitness preparation
9. Set your objectives clearly at the begining of the season, people will understand better if you skip tournaments that are not related to these objectives
10. Be always nice and available with the press, they are your ambassadors

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

It is a worry if she starts swimming in the sea and you have a match on low - lying terrain

I forgot this one but it is key, and Marat should think about that...

He doesn't like skinny girls because there's nothing to eat.
