Who will next receive the "Power of The Blog"

Week 1 - Ivan Ljubicic blogs for the ATP in Chennai and takes the title

Week 2 - James Blake does the ATP blog from Sydney takes the title there

Do you think the other players are fighting now to be the recipient of the "Blogger Magic" for the Oz Open? Who should be the next lucky player chosen?

Re: Who will next receive the "Power of The Blog"

i assume they might give the "power of the blog" to someone who they think will make it through the 1st week of the AO...
i could be wrong though!

i can't wait for the rest of the blogs this year, it's a great idea

I'd like to see them give it to Moya. His English is good enough.
Even Lord Carlos could use some extra power.

Not sure how the players do the blog thing but some of Ljubo's Sunday edition was a replica of some of what he said in his post - match interview.

But otherwise I think it is a great idea...Ljubo is the best blogger I think so far...very interesting read

My guess is that they contact the fellow who actually types in the blog to discuss what events should be in it. Then the ghost writer writes a first draft, sends it to the player for him to read and suggest some final corrections and adjustments, mainly to make sure he/she didn't make any blatant mistake, and finally posts it at the ATP site.

Come to think of it, this would actually take more of the player's time than if they just wrote the blog by themselves.

Anyway, so far it's been excellent.

From Margy: "I'd like to see them give it to Moya. His English is good enough.

[sorry, don't know how to do the 'quote message in reply' thingy yet ...]

Si, si ... what a great idea Margy ... yes, give it to Carlos!! He's had one day only last year, & had to pull out altogether after that Sydney final injury disaster in 2004!

btw, I was pleased that James won in Sydney this year ... had the Moya/Blake match happened, I would be sort of cheering for them both

Re: Who will next receive the "Power of The Blog"

Pretty sure Justin will be writing his SI blog during the AO (well, at least one entry anyway...).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Who will next receive the "Power of The Blog"

This thing that we speak of, "blogging" is actually quite silly, atleast in my personal opinion and with regard to professional athletes that have far superior obligations to fulfill. How or why producing nothing short of a diary would serve beneficial to a person of that caliber is beyond me.

I do it, sure. Then again, my actions aren't reflective to numerous other parties lives ... atleast I don't think so.
