Do you ever do anything except complain (oh and sadistically revel in other people's pain)?

I think he occassionally does the things he listed.

I love Nadal's blog. Very down to earth and doesn't talk constantly about how awesome he is, which is nice.

It's a Grand Slam and he's defending champion. It's obvious right now it's going to be all about the tennis for him this two weeks. I think he comes across as really down to earth. And he was nice to Kim. And mentioned Arantxa Sanchez Vicario and quite frankly there can never be enough Arantxa mentions. I like his blog :)

I like Nadal's blog. It's about tennis, and basically tells us what his average day is like. I think it's interesting, and he manages to include mentions of all his tennis player friends.

The blog is not exactly humorous, but one can't expect Tursunov-like effort from Nadal or anyone else during the French Open or any tourney.

i think its very sweet and honest. Life as a tennis player isnt all that glamorous at times, and nadal is trying to show that by telling his day-to-day routines. Its interesting to see how he uses his time, and hear about all the press he does. Others may find it dull, but i think its very interesting... and his humour is cute too.

So tomorrow, I obviously won't wake up in Paris.

I'll bet you're the ghost writer for Andy's blog. :lol:


Personally, I'm enjoying Rafa's blog but I wish he would tell us a few more specifics to his day. For instance, instead of telling us that he went downstairs for breakfast, I'd like to know what exactly he ate. I can't be the only one curious to know what the King of Clay eats for breakfast and where all that energy comes from.

Am I the only one not looking for every player to have a Tursunov-like blog??... The only thing I want out of a player's blog is for them to tell about their day in whatever style is true to how they are... It's fine if the players want to joke around or get readers to laugh, but that's not the purpose of the blogs... :)

You can't possibly have Tursunov-like blogs through dictation. For example, there would be too few exclamation points.

You are definitely not.

:yeah:

Tursunov's blog was nice, but it's one of those supposed to appear once in a lifetime, if his style became a trend among other ATP bloggers, it would be bad, bad!!!! :yawn:

Well, he has. Witness: "I had my usual breakfast of cereal with milk and bread and butter this morning but no cola cao, which for those of you who don't know is a chocolate drink that everyone in Spain has for breakfast. A lot of you have been asking why I haven't been drinking cola cao and the reason is because I can't get it here in Paris," and "I ate some fried gambas with rice and some grilled fish (loup in French)," and "Also, people have asked me about my diet. I don't have a special diet but obviously I have to take care with what I eat. I eat pasta, meat and pizza. One thing I don't like is tomato. Even with pasta I prefer to have it without tomato. Also, I don't like cheese. Some people tell me I will like it when I get older but for the moment I don't like it."

Is very hard for me writing a good blog through means of transcriptionist. The English is not my maternal tongue. I speak English since 3 years. Often I finds myself very exhausting after tough match, and blog effort is not my body. I add photos, which is the creative part of post, no? Is not like Tursunov had muchas fotos on his blogging? And I no have time for gossiping because am true contender at these tournament. Tursunov have no media obligatoriations, and have much free time for to write inane blog full of many exclaming points. Real champions not having time for such wastings of the time. But must have to say that write blog one of best experiences in the life of me.

Isn't there something hilariously ironic about him talking about eating pizza followed directly by him stating his dislike for both tomatoes and cheese?

oh I digress, I wouldn't want to deflect from the whining that this thread was intended to propagate :lol:

That's what I said! Then it turned out that other posters agreed with him, but I stand by my assertion that without any tomato sauce *or* cheese it's not pizza! It may be good, but I can't call it pizza.

So, maybe you should read it :)

It must be me and Rafa the only 2 in the world who do find that Tursonov's blog was a little inane. Well maybe not inane since inanity (inaness???) lacks opinions and basically means VANILLA and Tursonov had a few things to say. But at the same time...

Andy's blog would be funny

Waken up in Paris.
Not Texas mind you.
They speak French hear so I don't like it as much.
Mojo was not in Notre Dame or on top of the Eyeful Tower. :sad:

Honestly, call me naive but I wanted to hear Nadal talk about the banana incident on his blog. Other than that I can't see anything wrong with it. And I really love how he gives recognition to the people who work with him behind the scenes.
