Corona Extra for ATP.

I remember reading that Djokovic had steak and red wine for meal. The next day he played a match, he felt weak. Alcohol is no good if you play strenuous sport.

Its AO time and the best Aussies use to train on brews !
I really think todays athlete is getting too concerned with nutrition and cals, not to mention some of the other performance enhancing stuff. How about a little stress relief after a good workout or victory ? Everything in moderation is my motto ;)

You need to raise the dollar from somewhere. If the AO want the name of a mediocre aussie wine all over their product then fine by me. It won't make me buy the stuff.

Who cares? The absence of such ads would certainly not make the fans stop drinking... Neither do they make them, or the players, alcoholics

There's a recent Japanese report that red wine has great conducting properties.

Interesting question and the answer is yes it is good but not in large amounts of course, a glass at diner or max 2 glasses wont do any harm, i remember professional cyclists drank red wine during the Tour de France, some every night but of course only 1 glass.

The problem with red wine is the alcohol. It tends to do the following to the body:

- Dehydrates: Similar to coffee, it's a diuretic (makes you pee more)
- Decrease reaction time and visual acuity: varies by individual
- Decrease serum testosterone: Not a good idea, especially for the ones already suffering this from use of steroid.
- Increase fat storage: For Mr. Nalbandian, it's probably ok; for others, it might affects their game significantly.

then again there are some people who get tanked off 2 glasses of wine. I bet Nadal could shotgun a bud heavy during the coin toss and be fine.

The reason tennis tournaments are put on is so that someone makes a lot of money. Advertising is a big part of that.

That is too cynical. The reason tennis tournaments are put on is because there in interest in tennis.

Former French player Amelie Mauresmo had stated on her web page that she was quite fond of wine. Not sure if she drank before/during a match though. :)

I remember when she won Australia Open, she said she had a very old red wine tucked away in the cellar at home waiting for her to celebrate her win.

"She said in a post-match interview that when she returns home to her base in Geneva, Switzerland, she will toast the win with a bottle of 1937 Château d'Yquem wine which she has been saving to celebrate her first grand slam title."

long term benefits of moderate (good) wine consumption have been highly studied...

but not during change overs!
