Wow, if she wants a boyfriend, he'll need to be gay.

Seriously though, that's worse than even Marit Bjoergen.

A subject of this website has mentioned that the "human body has evolved." Apparently you aren't aware that Darwin predicted millions of years of evolution would be compressed into a few decades on the cusp and into the 21st century?

That is a great blog.

Nice to be reminded that some sports are worse off than cycling.

How is tennis a sh!t sport?

You realize 99% of people would rather watch ice melt than watch cycling?

This reminds me of a famous Andy Roddick quote:

“When we were 10, I had to literally run around in the shower to get wet; I was this big,” Roddick said, bringing his hands close together. “She was bench-pressing dump trucks already at that time.”

Williams was quick to rebut that one Monday. “Andy’s always exaggerating,” she said. “I was so small for my age. He was small, too. But he just got jealous, because my body was more fit and that my biceps are probably still bigger than his.


:D Although it's hard to imagine that Serena was on steroids at age 11.

lol. If Ricco was a tennis player anyone who suggested he had doped would be sent to a mental institute as a conspiracy theorist.

It looked liked del potro could get into this group after beating federer in the US open a couple of years back but he hasnt been the same since his injury. I find the early round matches of tournaments with one of them big four playing so predictable and one sided that i dont really start watching it till the quarters or semis onwards.


I agree. In the mens game its boring until the last 16 when there is maybe a hope, and I just dont watch till then.

As for the womens game, well Henin unfortunately has gone and while she doesnt have much of a career left, Schiavonni is great to watch.

Let's hope that David is reincarnated one more time. Great guy, great mind, great writer. Life cut too short. RIP my friend.
