Oh, so that was the dream -- like an announcement.

I think Djoko has the ability to beat Nadal at RG, also that Nadal has the ability to beat Djoko. Depends on the conditions.

I always hate this so and so at his best beats so and so at his best stuff. The point is to not let the opponent play at his best. For instance, GMers moaning about how could Nadal play so well against Berdych and struggle against Ferrer. Does no one stop to think that Ferrer actually troubles Nadal and Berdych does not? Rafa can play at his best against Berdych, but not always against Ferrer,

And I know I'm probably the only one, but this distance between Jelena and Nole worries me. I wonder if that is responsible for his lack of concentration at times, I mean not just that she is not present, but that there is trouble between them that they are trying to work through, these personal things have a way of showing up on the court.

I have another follower on twitter. No idea who it is. He only follows 16 people, Weird. Also I barely tweet and have hardly any followers other than pseudo Serena or whatever the name is.

Do yourself a favour and try to cook as often as possible instead of eating instant meals. There's tons of really simple recipes online (or just ask here )

And as you say, making things yourself is normally better. Unless you really mess up! Which I've done many times.

Do your dreams usually come true? I think the other half actually will have two random semifinalists It is really stupid that they didn't change the top seeds now that the draw is actually here...

Fed was very nice to me, but you know -- boringl. I dropped by the practice court that was apparently private and Fed was happy to see me, he had a present for me there in a fairly large box with a ribbon and a bow, I thanked him and left him there at the practice court and went into the house or condo or something near by. Mirka and another woman were there and I set the box down and started talking to them. We were having a good time, and then I woke up.

When I told this dream to a friend who is a fed fan, she said, "I wonder what was in the box!" That made me laugh so hard. All the strange things in the dream and she just wanted to know about the present!

You think there's trouble in paradise? I really hope everything is okay between them

Jelena is in Paris with Nole. Whenever Jelena was not around Nole, she was working on his Foundation.

Wow, a lot of information and insight in just a few paragraphs of writing. I like your account of kneading the bread, because I can relate to that feeling where a child becomes obsessed with completing something that wouldn't be so important.

I should really practice more, and I think I'll do so in the summer.

Let me tell you a little secret. Nobody likes doing the dishes.

I think I will make a conscious effort to cook more, now that I think about it and have you telling me this. Thanks.

I think they are. Jelena is not like most WAGs enjoys following her man around. From her tweets, she really enjoys doing the works for the Foundation. And Nole did most of the promo and guy's stuff when she was not around. They spent more times together than their earlier days. I think they have the right balance. Yes, Nole focus better when she's around but may be that's the result of they prefer more time to themselves when she's with him.

Everyone I know owns a dishwasher, at least those who cook often

Enjoy your cooking experience and let us know how it goes Or share some easy recipes, because I really need some new ones

You sound like you're an expert.

HA as if. Pasta is really the only dish I can cook well.

I wish I could cook more but parents never allow me to cook evening meals... .

The big character in the middle is "love" and the smaller one on the top right is "pray" And the partially blocked one on the top left is "Idemo"

I believe some twitter answered his question already.

For me it's Pasta with a creamy cheese sauce and Bacon, I would also count Steak and Chips as it's my favourite meal, but it doesn't take a culinary genius to figure out how to cook that!
