Feeling stuffy?

Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Serena has apparently partnered up with Vicks and NyQuil…here are some tips for you! ;)

In addition to taking Vicks NyQuil Sinus and DayQuil Sinus, the following are some of Serena’s favorite tips(1) to help maintain healthy sinuses:

* Use a natural saline spray several times daily to keep the sinuses moist

* Don’t drink iced drinks, as they can aggravate sinus problems

* Get plenty of rest, key to being at your best

* When possible, exercise outdoors to increase your circulation and clear sinus passages

* Make sure you are getting enough moisture in your bedroom at night and remember to close the windows — problems occur when the sinuses dry out, use a humidifier if necessary

* Take plenty of hot showers and inhale steam into the sinus passages

I’m not dead…

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

I finally finished school (well, one grade is still out, but I think I passed) and my taxes and a whole bunch of other projects that took me away from this. Look for new news coming soon! Apologies for all the missed content.

Blake ready to replace Roddick

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

One of these tournaments, Blake might find his game again.

James Blake is ready to be the No. 1 singles player for the United States in next week’s Davis Cup quarterfinal against Spain after Andy Roddick strained his left hamstring.

“It’s an injury that could be tricky. We hope he’s OK,” Blake said Thursday in a conference call. “If we have him, we like our chances. If we don’t have him, we’re lucky enough to live in a country that has exceptional depth.

“I feel confident going on the court as the No. 1 and having Mardy Fish as the No. 2, or even Sam Querry or Robby Ginepri.”

Courier rips Nadal

Sunday, April 1st, 2007
Jim Courier is passionate about tennis and passionate about the Davis Cup.

Courier is also angry.

He read that Rafael Nadal will not play for Spain in next weekend’s Davis Cup quarterfinal against the United States at Joel Coliseum - and, oh boy.

“That’s a bunch of bull,” Courier said.

That’s also a common occurrence in Davis Cup play these days.

And that’s what upsets Courier and others with similar passion.

Nadal cited a nagging foot injury as the reason that he’ll be back in Spain instead of in Winston-Salem when singles play starts Friday. But Nadal continued playing at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla., after making the announcement, reaching the quarterfinals.

Skeptics, including Courier, remain convinced that Nadal had other reasons for pulling out.

“The facts are that Nadal is not playing in Winston-Salem for schedule reasons,” Courier said. “What he’s saying is not legitimate. There’s no question in my mind that he just wants to go home and get ready for the clay, and that’s unfortunate, and terrible for the fans who have sold that arena out and are wanting to see him battle our team. But that’s the reality of the situation.”
