Okay,I sent the inquiry to a major tennis fanatic but,be warned: Just because they speak Portuguese doesn't mean that Brasileras are any more punctual than other Latinos...so we might have to wait a couple days for the answer....Will let you know in this same thread

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Rio Olympics Update for 'backhandsmash' and other interested fans: The only thing the authorities have decided is that the surface will be HARDCOURT--the type and speed have yet to be determined...and no answer on WHEN,precisely,they'll decide

HC is good. She might have been knocked by then though.


Rory, don't do it!

Ummmm....I don't see the homely Rory as a Rafa Marquez-type who might cause a woman to lose all her self control.If she does well at her upcoming tournaments,then we'll know pretty clearly that she has maintained her equilibrium

Man, following Caro on Twitter can make one feel guilty...

I´ve just been reading her tweet on how she's been running, playing tennis and is hitting the gym now only to play more tennis later. And meanwhile, I´ve been sitting on my ass all day only getting up to get fresh coffee

Mind you, I´ve been working pretty much all day... but still, I feel like a lazy bum now

I don't feel the least bit bad about that. Soon enough you will have plenty of opportunities to watch Caroline play. Caroline probably ought to take advantage of every break that she gets.

We had a rare heavy rainfall last night....After nailing a roach with insecticide,I swept it out the front door with high hopes that it landed on its back so that it could slowly drown as its mouth filled up with rain
