Olivia's faves are Nadal and Sharapova, so... Anyway, to make it perfectly clear, I like Julia's game. More than any other game (WTA at least), of course

Didn't know that. Naive as I am I thought Julia was her fave (because of the photo)

Re: Görges' Fans Chat Thread: Volume 1

Since I figured out how to open a young coconut with a big chopping knife a month or two ago (thank goodness for the internet) I've been totally addicted to young coconuts, drinking their juice and spooning out the soft meat inside. Have you guys tried them? They are delicious. I never dared to buy them before because I didn't know what to do with them. I tried a canned version of the juice before but there was no comparison, the real thing is miles better. I opened 3 tonight, although I share the juice and meat with my parents so we get a third each. They vary in maturity, some are all juice and almost no meat, some have more meat and less juice, some are sweeter than others- all are very refreshing.

My method of opening involves trimming off the white outside part (I cut off the pointy top, not the flat part) until you can see the top part of the shell clearly. I make sure I have a round section at the top the size of a tennis ball totally exposed with the three lines intersecting. I use the corner of the chopper to hit each of the three lines, then I hit in between them. Once I get the knife in deep enough with a hit, I lever up the top and it comes off in one small round section with very little loss of juice. The hole is just big enough to put a table spoon into to get the meat out. I pour out the juice into a bowl (I try to pour from a low height and you have to do it quite smoothly and quickly- takes some practice to avoid losing juice) and then I use a spoon to get the meat out.

I'll try to make sure I get enough exercise and drink enough water.

Were you having the canned stuff or were you opening fresh young coconuts? Young coconuts have less energy stored in them.

Coconut milk is from mature coconuts and has a lot more calories than the juice from young coconuts. Young coconuts have barely any meat and the juice has very little fat.

Coconut milk is about 17% fat, but young coconuts have less than 4% fat usually. If you only drink the juice they have almost no fat but of course I eat the small amount of jelly-like meat too.

Still, I'll have to make sure to burn enough calories anyway. I'm very active so I should be able to do it.

Occasionally one of the coconuts is more mature. This means it's more difficult to open, it has less juice, and it has more meat (and the meat is drier and harder with a higher fat content as opposed to the watery and juicy meat in young coconuts). In this case I do have to take into account that I am eating more calories in that meal and I have to make up for it by eating less of something else or exercising more.

Incidentally I looked through my post there and saw that I accidentally used the word "dryer"- the electrical appliance- instead of "drier"- the comparative adjective. That's a tricky one. I noticed something seemed off when I typed it so I googled it.

The one and only Google translator, of course. I actually thought only the last one would mean "Julia Görges". The video below was also just named "괴르게스"



But I won't question what Yeji-Oh says, of course
