To those who think our Chinese source unreliable, shame on you!

The private clinic called Klinik Bethanien where Mirka gave birth to a set of twin girls has been revealed... well, sort of...

I just want to reassure some readers again that at HCFoo's Tennis Blog, we only publish news which we believe are true.

Andy Murray passes driving test; can ditch go-kart for real car now

Andy Murray, who only started his driving lessons a couple of weeks ago, passed the test at the first attempt.
He wrote on Twitter: "Sorry for passing my driving test first time this morning. just two minor faults. Thanks to blaine at adi training for the lessons!"
During Wimbledon, Murray said driving lessons were a "relatively stressful thing to do at the end of a long training day".

But he vowed to make time after the tournament and jokingly warned people to "stay off the roads".

His new driver's license will be a relief for mum Judy and girlfriend Kim Sears who will no longer have to ferry him around.

Malaysian Open: One-way ticket to see shirtless players under the equatorial sun

Eight players already announced their commitment to join the Malaysian Open scheduled this September - (pictures in sequence) Lleyton Hewitt, Robin Soderling, David Ferrer, Fernando Gonzalez, Nikolay Davydenko, Gael Monfils, Kei Nishikori and Fernando Verdasco.

Malaysia is located near to the equator, so it's extremely hot and humid throughout the year.

Although the tournament is going to be held indoor, there's still high possibility that you'll see the players shirtless on and off court especially during practice, jogging and changovers.


Here's a preview of what you'll most likely see (I mean hot bods!) between September 26 to October 4, 2009.

If you like what you see, book your tickets now. Go to: http://malaysianopentennis.com/tickets.html

"Pamela" has surfaced, files libel suit against Richard Gasquet!

Just as he thought he could make a return to the ATP World Tour, Richard Gasquet's happiness was cut short.

"Pamela" or known as Pamela D., the woman identified by Gasquet as the source of his positive test for cocaine at Miami, has filed a libel suit against the Frenchman.

Gasquet told an anti-doping tribunal that he kissed Pamela several times at a nightclub the evening before his positive test, and any cocaine she had taken could have found his way into her system.
"Firstly, my client affirms that she never said she had taken cocaine that evening," her lawyer told Le Post.

"Secondly, Pamela D. affirms that she never told Mr. Gasquet that Francesca [her friend also present that evening] had taken it that same evening."

"Thirdly, Pamela D. affirms that she never said to Mr. Gasquet that a member of Mr. Bob Sinclair's entourage had offered cocaine the evening of March 27.

"Finally, my client affirms that she never offered false testimony in favor of Mr. Gasquet."

The lawyer added that according to Pamela, she only kissed Gasquet once and "it was not a long kiss."
According to a source, Pamela was tested negative on her hair strand, which means she's not a long term cocaine user.

All I can say now is Gasquet is in deep shit again.

Woohooo! Rafael Nadal back in training for August return!

Finally, Rafael Nadal is back in training for the first time since being sidelined by a knee injury.

Nadal has been out of action with tendinitis in his right knee since losing to Robin Soderling in the fourth round of the French Open.



We're hoping that Nadal will be fully recovered by next month to resume playing at the Montreal Masters.

Weekend winners: Jeremy Chardy, Robin Soderling, Sybille Bammer, Flavia Pennetta

Frenchman Jeremy Chardy won his first career ATP Tour title on Sunday, beating Victor Hanescu 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the Mercedes Cup final in Stuttgart, Germany.

Chardy swigged down a bottle of champagne at the victory ceremony and then took a brief spin behind the wheel of a new Mercedes E350, a prize given by the sponsor.

It was Chardy’s second career final. He finished as runner-up in Johannesburg in February.


In Bastad, Sweden, Robin Soderling beat Juan Monaco 6-3, 7-6 (4) to win the Swedish Open for his fourth ATP Tour title and first on clay.

The second-seeded Soderling became the first Swedish winner of the tournament since 2000 when his coach, Magnus Norman, won the title.


Austrian Sybille Bammer has beaten top-seeded Francesca Schiavone 7-6 (4), 6-2 to win the Prague Open in Czech Republic.

Flavia Pennetta routed Sara Errani 6-1, 6-2 to win the Palermo Open in an all-Italian final.

It was Pennetta’s seventh career title, with six of the seven having come on clay.
