Red face 2008 Australian Open. Sunscreen required, 4th round tickets optional...

Yeah, I know we usually have a Kooyong/Bong title, but we can do that next week. This week, Andy is in Hawaii (Kona region), and he needs sunscreen while he works out and gets tuned up. Hopefully, he's using the right products and applying it liberally before he gets dressed. When we say we want him to wear more colors, we don't mean a lobster red skintone.

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.

Trying not to start off wrong in Kooyong.

Not many years left near your peak Andy! 2008 will be a telling year. They sped up the court surfaces that Aussie too, it should play more like Decoturf. Lets go Andy in Melbourne!

Actually the people who are playing on it are saying it's not actually faster, just lower-bouncing and is more consistent throughout weather conditions. Mardy and some others are complaining it's slow, actually.

Similarly I guess. Maybe the AO surface will speed up a bit after people practice on it and some of the roughness from the new surface goes away.... But it shouldn't be an injury monster like Rebound Ace at least

Fee LOL

Love this and for the new season.

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

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

Wow..time for tennis again, is it?

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear
