    A quiet day at work and I got to thinking about Hewitt and his "raw meat" on court persona. The link to food establish my brain linked Hewitt to his hero Rocky Balbao and the famous raw eggs for breakfast scene. I can see Hewitt into that one. Federer is an easy one as it would just be muesli with milk and yoghurt courtesy of Juliet. Roddick I have down as a waffle / pancakes and syrup sort of guy. Safin I reckon doesn't do breakfast, he's still out partying and might just get to McDonald's in time to get a Big Breakfast before 11am, or possibly a greasy kebab on the way home from the nightclub. Henman would be at his bowl of Frosties (they're gggggreeattt!) with a cheeky round of brown toast and thick cut olde marmalade if he was really letting rip. Agassi would be fruit and nuts. Steffi would have to hold the banana peel while he took the banana out (no not that banana) otherwise it would be unlucky. All the family would have to be in the same seats around the table before he started and he would only sip repeatedly from his tea cup and go a bit potty trying to look for a top to put on it in between sips. Coria would have lots of vitamin pills to take .... Anyone else ...?

    I know Federer isnt a big fan of dieting. He tries to eat healthy, but he also likes to treat himself to good food. Especially when not in Switzerland he likes to try different foods. I am not sure he has a meal he eats every breakfast.

    I hear Coria doesn't eat anything.

    Instead, he drinks the blood of the innocent...

    I'm no "Pro", but I take daily lessons with a coach (aspiring Open Tennis Champ) and I have Oatmeal, with wheat germ, and flaxmeal. To that I add, raisins/currants, blueberries, or strawberry, or banana.

  21. Chances are good that Serena has a danishes and donuts for breakfast.
    Hantuchova - 1/2 stick of celery, plain with water or gatorade.
    Nadal- a few cc's of uncle Tony's mystery steroid concoction in the nalgas.
    Safin- some ho still hangin' around from last night.
    Navratilova-oatmeal, fresh squeezed oj, yogurt and who knows, maybe some fish.

    I'd figure Roddick used to be a leftover pizza for breakfast kind of guy...
