Shoot That Poison Arrow Through My Heart

Like millions of New Yorkers, I like to read the newspaper on the way to work while riding the subway.



This morning, I saw something in the sports section that shocked me, confused me, disgusted me, intrigued me—nearly every verb you can think of but make me happy: A loonng story on the U.S. archery team deciding to stand by its embattled coach. The coach, Kisik Lee, is under fire for the team not winning a medal in Beijing and his controversial takes on training and his religious… Continue

My first stab at tennis.

I found a tennis racket at Good Will for only $2.50, and I bought a can of balls at Walgreen's. So I headed over to the Golden Gate courts, where there's a couple of practice walls.



At the wall I noticed that too often, I hit the balls over the fence. I kept at it for a while, and though it was fun, someone started practicing next to me and since I have so little control over the ball, I decided to leave him in peace.



The next morning I met with one of my new partners,… Continue

ATP Screenning at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin

Last weekend we had this screening in Berlin. We screened all qualified players of the Masters Cup in Shanghai on two walls at Checkpoint Charlie. It was really fun to work with these heavy-duty projectors and see the results on the wall.



For example Roger Federer (in front you see the historic border between FRG and DDR - the sign on the right side says: "You are leaving the american sector!"):



We showed him the pictures and he… Continue

Murray on first win in Shanghai



Apart from the second set, which was kind of weird, the rest of it looked pretty controlled domination.



Yeah. I hit the ball well for most of the match. I just didn't serve well in the second set. I had a chance to break him right at the start of the second - If I'd done that, then maybe second set would have been a different story. But, yeah, I played well.



Given it's your first experience of this event, how did… Continue

Murray for Shanghai



I think Andy Murray is the favourite for the Masters Cup and rightly so as he must be the in form player and with Federer in his group I can see him meeting him in the final. He is playing so well and I think next year he could go very far hopefully winning his first GS in Australia on the hard courts and challenging for the number 1… Continue

Roddick Renegs on Nude Tennis Offer!

Couldn't you just see Andy joking with the crowd at a charity auction, and saying that for the "right price" he's give the lessons on the auction block in the buff? That's so Andy. But when the woman who won pressed him, even Andy had to backtrack.
