1. Zombie Alert
The blank stare, the sunken cheeks, the bags under the eyes. What really happened up on that mountain, Marat?
2. Retirement Alert
I hate to say it, but can Fabrice hold on in singles much longer? It pains me to see him work his magic and still lose in the first round. Perhaps it’s time to retire to the the home for doubles specialists.
3. Stylist Alert
Roger, I think you should go with size L instead of M. And ditch the concrete colored shorts.
4. Fugly Alert
That Adidas orange belongs in the Tang factory, not on cuties like Ancic and Safin.
5. Comeback Alert
Kiefer, Ferrero, Ancic, Nalbandian (and does Murray count?) – one of these slumping guys is going to make a statement here.
6. Eating Crow Alert
Davis Cup tickets sold out in 30 minutes. 3 days, 12,000-seat capacity. I guess Oregon is a tennis hot bed after all.
7. Rubbing it in Alert
Juan Monaco bumped off seeded player Tommy Haas in straight sets!!! I hope he can keep up his focus.
