Roger Federer has never retired during a match on the ATP tour

Swiss tennis player Roger Federer practices practices at the Rod Laver Arena ahead of the Australian Open Tennis Tournament in Melbourne, Australia, 10 January 2011. The tournament runs from January 16 until 29. EPA/JULIAN SMITH AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND OUT  |

Dr. Chiro has pointed out that Roger Federer has only pulled out of a tournament twice…. once he was already in the event…

But… Drumroll ….. Roger has never quit on a match. Ever!!

Dr. Chiro also made an interesting statement. He said that Roger’s game relies on speed, flexibility, intuition, ingenuity, and imagination….. Please read his current story with his observations on the men’s seeds going into the Australian Open… Very insightful.

We hope you are enjoying the aloha that Shubert has been supplying. Nathan’s blogs are super. Reyes’ newsletters will be daily during the two weeks of the Oz Open….. the “10s Whenever” Newsletters.

We are all wondering what’s up with Andy Roddick and his silly hair. The color. The style. The look. One staffer said he looked like a cabbage patch doll. All I know is he is on edge. He seemed testy and grumpy during a recent press conference. Poor Andy. We hope it’s a joke. It looks like a Squirrel is on his head…..

I have been reading a tweet here and there. On @bgnation, (Brad Gilbert). He said hotels are charging for wi-fi in the rooms. Wow. As much as $25 a day. Double wow! That’s sad to charge for a service like that. After all isn’t the hotel business the service industry? Aren’t tennis events?

There was a Global Chick siting in Australia. There was also an Auzzie Chick siting. 10sballs.com needs those chicks. Why? Because we don’t cover the chicks enough. I think it’s not fifty / fifty on the site ?

The Tennis Channel looks to be planning a good amount of televised coverage.

The WTA has a new patch the ladies are wearing. They so insult their sponsor. The patch is poorly designed. The biggest most prominent part of the patch should say SONY Ericsson. In big letters not WTA…..
