Get well wishes to Ivo Karlovic. Word is its meningitis. In March  tennis lost a young talented  and really likable player named Mehdi Bouras. He played a few events in California and died in Miami during the tourney?

Lady lines woman Lois Goodman has recently been seen around Southern California calling lines ?

The 2013 Asics Easterbowl was a huge success. Big congrats go to Lorne Kuhle.

Quote from Max  Mirnyi on winning the dubs in Romania, “every new win is very special :) ” . If you are in Bradenton Florida you have to try Max’s  new restaurant. We hear its GREAT! It’s called “Breakpoint ” . They’ve got great pizza from a wood burning stove and so much more. Plus you never know who will be sitting at the next table.
