    Fish coming back!

    How will he do in his return at Indian Wells, where he has had some good past results? http://espn.go.com/tennis/story/_/id/8996695/mardy-fish-hopes-play-full-schedule-return I'm happy to see his return after being benched. Such a good ball striker and forecourt player.

    Racket Demo deal: 4 rackets for $1.50.

    I just ordered a demo on 4 rackets for a grand total of $1.50. The low price is due to a $10 shipping credit for demoing the new Dunlop Aerogel, which seems like a nice frame. I also got a Prince O3 HyTour, Head MicroGel ExPro, and a Head Fxp Pres Midplus. Sweet deal.

    Tennis in Tahoe City over July 1-July 5?

    It would be quite fun!! Anybody going to be there? I would guess somebody from the boards will be there because it seems like half of the Bay area and half of Sacramento goes there for the big holiday. Me thinks there might even be post tennis wakeboarding and-or moutain biking opportunities!

    Roddick or Rusedski? Santoro or Monfils?

    Who is going to win. I'm going with Roddick and Santoro. Roddick's serve is just as good, ground game better, movement better, and he'll have that little extra clay moment to hit passing shots. I don't believe Rusedski can keep up his clay form, i mean come on, Rusedski on clay...

    Go GUGA!!!

    Potential path for Costa Do Sauipe: Ghem (should win)/Horna (tough)/Volandri (tough)/Gaudio (very tough)/Ferrero (or maybe Massu). Two or Three wins would be a very good result but i'm rooting for him to take the title!!!!!
