Rafael Nadal looking dishevelled

Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal looking dishevelled to flog men’s fragrance. 65€ a bottle?! I hope he smells good.

Only one women’s tournament this week (compared to last week’s three) but the men have two, Dubai and Delray Beach. No female young guns in action (Azarenka, Wozniacki, Cornet etc) but Venus is playing in Mexico. She’s probably under the delusion that it’s being played on grass not clay. Hope she stays after she realises the truth.

On the Baseline has a nice wrap of the last week’s Dubai shenanigans.

In Mexico, Olaru qualified but Rus lost. In Dubai Cilic won, Karlovic lost, Ferrer beat Ljubicic and Murray and Santoro won.

Andy Murray took three sets (before his opponent retired) and was perhaps still seasick after his high-sea hi-jinks. Murray and Djokovic have been working overtime promoting the tournament since no other star is showing up (does Davydenko actually have star power?). Novak Djokovic took a spin in a flight simulator: down there you can see the visa office where we ban the Israelis – not this week of course. No word on whether Andy Ram has been pressed into doing promotional work to compensate for the extra security required.
