    Alright, at least you have a sense of humor.

    So you went from loving Nadal to hating him. In other words, he didn't return any of your crazed calls. :)

    I wonder... Do you have a new favorite player? And if so, do you plan on stalking him too?

    Lets be honest here: If I'm going to stalk a player, it'd probably be someone like Kirilenko or Ivavovic. However, at age 50 with three high school kids, I'm guessing that wouldn't go over too well. :)

    Three kids? No wonder Nadal didn't return your calls. :)

    Yeah, one off to college soon and one off to a ballet company soon. That leaves only one left (the one planning for med school). Busy house here :)

    OK man, you sound like a cool guy and a family man to boot. If I ever annoy you take things with a grain of salt. :)

    We'll see how Nadal fares in ACAPULCO. It will show a better measure of where his game is at, against higher seeded opponents particularly against Ferrer (if he ever meets him in the Finsals that is)

    Glad he's back. A healthy Nadal makes for two good SF's.

    Otherwise, we're all waiting to see where Murray gets placed in the draw to see whether Federer or Djokovic got the bye into the finals...assuming Ferrer makes it to the semis, of course.
