Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Ivanisevic 'to retire soon'
01 September 2003

Former Wimbledon champion Goran Ivanisevic is planning to announce his retirement in the near future, according to his agent. Ivanisevic, who turns 32 on 13 September, returned to the ATP Tour in February after undergoing left shoulder surgery last year.

But the Croatian suffered another blow when an elbow injury limited him to only three tournaments.

"He is going to retire soon. He's thinking about it more and more these days," Ivanisevic's agent Gerard Tsobanian said at the US Open on Sunday.

"He is still suffering from an elbow injury and does not want to opt for surgery."

Ivanisevic failed to win a match during his brief comeback and was a pale shadow of the player who won Wimbledon as a wild card in 2001 after being a runner-up in 1992, 1994 and 1998.

He has won 22 ATP singles titles during his career and rose to second in the world rankings in July 1994.

News of his impending retirement follows the exits of Pete Sampras and Michael Chang.

Ferreira to retire at end of 2004
13 October 2003

South Africa's Wayne Ferreira is planning to retire at the end of 2004.

"The end of next year will be it for me," the 32-year-old said after a first-round victory over Croatian Ivan Ljubicic at the Madrid Masters on Monday.

"I have the goal of doing the grand slams and there's the possibility of getting back to the Olympics one more time. Then I think it's time to put my time and effort into my family so I think I'll give it one more year."

Ferreira, who turned professional in 1989, said he would like to stay on in the sport in some capacity and hinted at a possible future career as a coach.

"I'd like to help," he said. "Tennis has been my life since I was a kid. It's all I know and I'm good at it so I figure if I'm good at it I can give back to it."

"And lastly, it was great once again to savour the atmosphere of playing in my favourite event. Although it may be getting harder with each passing year to achieve my goal of winning this event it won’t stop me trying."
-Tim Henman on Wimbledon

Good Luck to: Malisse, Hewitt, Roddick, Blake, Fish, Vliegen, Gaudio, Bryan & Bryan, Oliver, Ginepri, Labadze, Berdych, Tipsarevic, Kendrick.


People I miss: Henman, Safin, Oliver.
