But if I don't get tickets in the ballot, Barcelona will be my back up as my boss is going to South Africa during the Valencia tournament. Though I am job hunting and maybe I will have a new position by then so Valencia could be put back on the table. *fingers crossed*
Good luck with whatever choice you make or whatever tennis you can see at this time.

Valencia, well it might not be the prettiest place around, but you are not there for the sightseeing, but there are plenty of places to go at nightand to eat and the atmosphere is a bit more down to earth than say Madrid or Barcelona and the tennis is your main goal.

Barcelona is not a bad back up and is probably a better event than Rome for example, as there are less claycourt clowns playing there and it has good traditions and as for the city, there is enough to keep you occupied.

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".

About the ear piercing, it's a bit tricky. It is a custom here to pierce girls' ears soon after birth. Sometimes when they are one day old. I had mine pierced when I was 8. There were no guns then and it was done the traditional way, a nedle and a thread. I got to keep the thread until the wound was healed. Jess, it was an ordeal, not the piercig itself, but the wound until it healed. One of my worst experiences as a kid. So, I did it to my daughter when she was a day old. It took 2 days and she was OK. As she was growing up, she always snatcher her earrings and threw them. She lost 2 diamond ones . At 5, she told me she doesn't want to wear earrings so we took them off. Now she's 8, her piercing is clogged and she wants to wear her earrings again but is so scared it's going to hurt to declog the piercing.

Anyway, congrats for Novak. Great tourney for him.

Re: The 'thank f**k that crap Australian Open is over' chat thread

I had absolutely no problems with my pierced ears. Got the first set at age 13 when one would use earrings and everynight just screw them a little tighter. Using Alcohol and antibiotic ointment no pain, no infection. And then one kept the same earrings in for 3 months; again just taking care of the hole with the above regimen.
At age 21 I got a second pair of holes using " a gun" that shot the earring into the spot. Not painful at all and again for a week just used alcohol etc. Sam wants one now but we have said when he is 13. I love an earring on a guy

Oh Adam.

You're a cutie - you'll find someone else.

And just think for the bright side - you're now available for when Carla dumps Guille.

Enjoy being single. I know that I do. No headaches. Relationships can be a pain, and you have no freedom to do what you want. Now you can go out and have a bit of fun. And not have to worry about keeping someone else happy. You're young...enjoy it while you can and play the field as they say. Eventually you'll be married, and won't be able to do anything fun.

I've never really been through a breakup as such but you seem to be handling it quite well.

I didn't talk much to Lynn last night as I was already talking to Julio and then Paul wanted to chat too.
