This will probably be more of a random doodle....nothing much to report.

My training has been pretty steady....some days better than others but that's the way it is getting back to things after an injury. It´s kind of like starting over, and seeing how things go day by day. Also a bit frustrating on the tennis part because some days you feel pretty good and push yourself, only to find your arm feeling sore the next day and having to take it easy again. When you're injured it only makes the thought of being healthy so much more important. I'm not sure I will be ready to play in Rome...which kills me to say because I love that city and the stadium there is one of my favorites to play in. I think another week of training is going to do me a lot better than rushing to play when I'm not quite there yet.

I gotta tell you in the last few weeks I have gotten to appreciate what my career has brought me more than any other time since I won Wimbe. I don't quite know how to describe it but it feels like I have had a steady life for the last few weeks. I go to what I call a dream job everyday, I have my positive days, I have the moody ones when I don't feel like getting out of bed. I have some meetings here and there.....get to work on a few exciting projects. I go to the beach if I feel like it, or call up my friends if I'm bored and need a little retail pick-me-up. Or I'll invite them over, order pizza and watch a movie. I'm positive my friends can't wait for me to get out of town because when I'm around they don't seem to get much work done!

Few random notes:

The gym I work out at is a little hole in the wall type of place where you usually see the same people regularly....mainly athletes. This past week I've seen this new couple come in about two times now.....the wife comes in wearing Chanel goggle size glasses and decides to use the elliptical machine with them on. No more does five minutes pass by does she get off and starts talking to the husband. He asks her how she feels and she says 'sweaty' in a disgusted way. Ummm yeah, last time I checked you're not supposed to feel sweaty at a gym.

I went to a UPS office the other day and some guy came in asking if they could send out a letter using Fed Ex.....brilliant!

My birthday card of the year goes to Eric. He got me a card that said ' the middle age is when you're too young to hit golf balls and too old to rush to the net (obviously a card for someone turning 50) and then below he wrote 'Thank God you're not there yet.' Typical Eric!!

Just heard that Kimmy is retiring! I wish her nothing but the best in her new chapter of life. She is a truly genuine person with a huge heart...not to mention someone with amazing accomplishments on court. Sending you lot's of hug's Kim!!

I'm so excited about the b-ball play-offs! Very bummed Miami is out, but Cleveland's my next fave....besides the fact that I've missed every one of their games because I'm usually training around that time....I'm with them in spirit. And Steve Nash is one of the best competitors out there....get's the job done and doesn't care about anything else...great role model!

Alright I'm getting quite bored with having to report about my home life which means that's it's time for my body to get it's act together!! Which means I better go ice my shoulder. (I'm so lazy when it comes to ice) Bye! Maria

I love Maria. But PLEASE play Rome. She has nothing to defend, so good time to get some much needed points for the number one.

Whatever, if she's hurt, I guess she shouldn't. :sad:

Nice entry by Masha. I think if she doesn`t feel comfortable, then i don`t think she should play in Rome. I know a lot of folks are wanting to see her there, but it would be too much of a long term risk for her health wise IMO.

Nice words, Mash. :)

She really liked Kim...as did most I think.

Yes, and she basically just said she isn't playing Rome. It's been a long time, that I'd rather she came back whenever she feels ready. At this point, even if that means grass court season, then so be it. Seems the injury is still bothering her. Better to return fully recovered.
