Dmitry Tursunov is talented!!!

I just read more of Tursunov's blog, and it is very amusing. He seems more sardonic and on his own planet than Safin. Here is one example of his dark humour that few other ATP players would exhibit and some comments from posters:

Posted after Russia's 2006 Davis Cup win:
Full Name: Jaime Manrique
City, Country: New York, USA
Message: Dmitry, What did it feel like being kissed on the lips by your teammate after the Davis Cup win?
Answer: It was a mixed feeling. I was going to save that kiss for the finals if we won, but when Igor ran out onto the court after my match and I saw his golden locks fluttering through the air, “Dancing Queen” by ABBA rang in my head. It was so romantic!!! All I heard was, “Dancing quuueeeen…..” and time froze still! Our lips locked, dizziness filled my entire body and I felt like I was floating on air. I bet Mark Wahlberg knows exactly what I mean. It’s a feeling that money can’t buy, “Anybody could be that guuuuuuy…Night is young and the music’s hiiiiigh… with a bit of rock music, everything is fine…”  I could have played another five-setter after that scene, “…Only seventeeeeen… feel the beat from the tamboooouriiiineeen… Oh yeaaaaah…”

I do not think Dmitri's lustful Davis Cup kiss on Igor's lips reflects anything more than partiotic exuberance. In fact, Dmitri got Mono from Igor through Maria Kirilenko...at least this is what Dmitri says when he explains his 2007 season. Dmitri is known to suffer insomnia unless he has the "company" of farm animals for the night. This is why he lives in rural Roseville, California -- where farm animals are plenty and the police easily bribed. But let me MAKE THIS CLEAR - Dmitri always chooses FEMALE farm animals. Also, in the morning after he releases them from the handcuffs that chain them to his bed, the farm animals always say he was a "gentleman." So let's have no more salacious rumours about Dmitri

Tursunov is almost as dangerous as Safin (today) when he is at his best. Youzhny, Safin and Tursunov will vie for the singles spots in Portland. This should be an interesting Davis Cup final.

Dimitry is a funny guy, but his tennis is very raw. did anyone see the doubles tie vs germany? Youhzny is a much better dubs player, and imo dimitry's go for broke error prone game cost them that doubles match. He hit every crucial return out. He is very powerful but classically overhits.

Tursunov did manage to win the Thailand Open this week. When his game is on, he is very dangerous.
