Yep that sounds about right, They get exactly the same amount of prize money as the men, they play the best of three sets, as to the best of 5 sets for the men, plus they get the heat break!!! They want the same as the ATP but not willing to go through what the men do....

I try and book a night flight, preferebly a seat toward the rear of the aircraft but not too far back , because of turbulance, and of course away fron the crib seats, along with that, a couple of beers , my headphones and a good movie or book...

good to watch, Football, but a good game of football where the stakes are high, eg an EPL game or a champions league match, also Tennis ATP, not WTA, has to be on a blue court eg the US open series Australian open etc, can't see the ball properly on the dirt..As for the most boring, cricket and curling.

Personally I have no problem with it, each to their own, but what really does it , is when they have so much of the UV protective clothing on , on a sticky summers day and they say "ATSUI NEHH!!! C'mon Really!!!

He actually trained at the famous Bolliteri academy in florida , where just a few of the other pros have been trained, sharapova , Agassi , courier, just to name a few, he got mentally stronger because he dealt with the real surroundings and training of what it' like to be a tennis pro, plus he is extremely talented and has a great mental game,and received the appropriate guidance.'(winning mentality) If you have the no#1 ranked player and his or her hitting partner ranked #101 having a rally, or doing some warm up drills, you will not see any difference on terms of their respective level, but take that into a competition or major tournament the whole game changes. at this pro level 80% mental 20% physical...That's why in the last 10 years only wawrinka and delpotro have won a slam except the big 4..

How about service stations, where there is a real service, changing the ashtrays, garbage, wiping the windows, you don't even have to get out of the car, and they assist you in merging back into the traffic. When I went back to Australia recently I filled up, then I had to line up for about 5 minutes obviously after filling up myself, whilst the people in front of me were not only paying for the gas ,but also food too..Yes Japan is the land of the convenient and customer..

@Pukey2 you don't get to no# 4 or 5 in the world without beating the top 5 at some stage, which he has done , let alone the top 15, at the moment he has 2 titles and runner up in Acapulco thius year, not bad for for so early in the season.
