It's exams over here, so I'm not teaching. You should've seen me walking around in the school with my eyes glued to my mobile phone

Blake had nothing to lose... and he lost.
and this is just the past 2 days.

Re: Dina's 'Let's Take One Step Further This Time 'Round' AO 2010 Campaign

why? she does serve out many sets and matches if she has no body problems. i do not think this is a big problem.

and coin toss - first serving problem... if she can hold her own, she has 5-4 at the end of the set, and the opponent has to serve to stay in the set. Or if her opponent broke her and leads 5-4, the opponent is who have to serve it out. Either way, the pressure is on the opponent shoulder.
The problem is, she is really sleepy/rusty in the first couple of games, and she can lose first games easily. adrenaline needs time to flow...

You're wrong on the booby issue,Norby;breasts are overrated....Small-breasted foxes,like Dina,are.

....But I totally agree with you on the tennis stuff.These underdogs are always saying,"I have nothing to lose,no reason to be anxious,blah,blah,blah..."---and then they choke.

It would be such a shock to everyone if Dinara won the AO right after injury rehab;even the stupidest haters couldn't say TOO much when she had to overcome such a hurdle

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

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

True but during her matches it's always a surprise for me

OOOoooh, RLA for Dina! And yes, it's at a perfect time. Rather nervous too.
