I love Marat and everything, but that is just embarrassing. I know tennis towels more dedicated to the tour than Safin.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

I've been without power since Friday morning (at a cafe right now), so I haven't spoken to my Hawaiian boy. Not sure who may or may not have left the island on Friday (but he definitely should have if he wants to start preparing for Kooyong).

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: Andy needs sunscreen (for the Aussie Summer season). First stop: Hawaii

Doesn't matter what the tube says, it's what the ingredient list on the back says. Last time I looked at FoE Sunscreen, it did not contain titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, or avobenzone in the active ingredients.

I have power back! And thankfully, as bad as it was in So Cal, it seems you got a little bit less of a smackdown than we did, which is good. The next two storms are supposed to be much wimpier, then I think we get a day or two of sunshine. Gas heating is a wonderful thing!

Gotcha

Yeah it wasn't nearly as bad here as they were saying, I mean it rained two nights in a row heavily but not at all yesterday and not at all right now. So that's good I guess for the burn areas. Glad you have your power back!

Raina, your guess is as good as ours

Re: Andy needs sunscreen (for the Aussie Summer season). First stop: Hawaii

If it really happened
At last count, Roger Federer, Marat Safin, Ivan Ljubicic, Fernando Gonzalez and the Williams women had landed
in Melbourne. Maria Sharapova is believed to be arriving today and her good friend (but absolutely not boyfriend) Andy Roddick was expected last night.

Re: Andy needs sunscreen (for the Aussie Summer season). First stop: Hawaii

AR.com says Andy should have arrived in Australia this past weekend. Play starts in just 2 days at Kooyong, so I hope he's there...since it will probably take a day or so to get over the jetlag. Ok, just don't get injured Andy...

Re: Andy needs sunscreen (for the Aussie Summer season). First stop: Hawaii

a DAY to get over that kind of jetlag? I doubt that!!

Anyway, Roger and Haas have pulled out of Kooyong, Davydenko is one of the replacements.

Fee, it might be soon time for the bong title

It'd be his chance to beat Roger.
