Tell me fellow book worms, did this edition of the ATPs “Favorite Things” depress you at all? Because besides a Dan Brown novel every now and then, most of our favorite tennis players don’t read anything but draw sheets (no, wait, that’s what their coaches are for.) At least the Eastern Europeans are keeping literature alive on tour (Ljubicic, Andreev and I could form a book club!):
Notice that Andy Murray went all Victoria Beckham on us. He could have lied and said he’d read his own autobiography! And I’m really starting to wonder about Gilles Simon – his favorite food is McDonald’s and he doesn’t read books. Next he’s going to say his favorite music is smooth jazz (oh wait, it is!)
I’m going to go sit in a corner and read now. If you’re interested in that book club, Ljuby, I’m reading The Painted Veil right now. . ..
