Holiday Greetings From the Federer Family

Roger Federer wishes everyone a happy holiday and posted a long awaited, updated family photo in his Facebook Fan Page today.

Although we still have no idea which baby is Myla Rose or Charlene Riva, you can actually see that there's a significant difference between the 5-month old twin sisters.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all tennis fans and friends a Merry X'mas and Happy New Year!

Cookies, Anyone?

We all know Rafa loves cookies. In this picture, he was spotted eating cookies in Indian Wells.

More cookies supply (and cash) for Rafael Nadal next year.

Recently, Nadal has been unveiled as the ambassador for Quely, a company that manufactures biscuits and chocolate.

Nadal was at his sponsor's cookie factory in Inca yesterday for a field trip.

Maria Kirilenko Swims With Dolphins

Sania Mirza, Zheng Jie, Maria Kirilenko and Elena Dementieva were at the Dolphins and Sea Lions Show at Sunway Pyramid last weekend.

But looks likes Kirilenko is the only tennis babe who gets into the water.

By the way, these are some rare photos I stole from the organiser's Facebook photo page *evil grin* (credit to Mr Blackberry).


At the end of their trip, they were each given a cuddly dolphin plush stuffed toy as souvenir.

Glam Slam: Great showdown but pathetic turnout

Thanks to Astro SuperSport CH811, I get to watch The Glam Slam - Showdown of Champions in the comfort of my home. It would be great if it's shown on HD though.

Although I did not watch the two-day event from the stadium, I'm glad I attended the meet-the-fans session on Friday.

The Russian babes Elena Dementieva and Maria Kirilenko defeated Asian girls Sania Mirza and Zheng Jie in a 3-0 win at the Melawati Stadium yesterday.

Dementieva/Kirilenko had won the doubles on Saturday beating Mirza/Zheng 6-4, 5-7, 10-8 to give Russia the lead in the exho match.

In the first singles yesterday, Kirilenko was stretched to three sets before defeating Zheng Jie 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 in two hours and 10 minutes!

Dementieva completed Russian domination by downing Mirza 6-4, 7-6 (7-0).

Overall, I think the exho match is worth watching because the players took their games seriously. It was like watching a real tournament.


However, the attendance was pathetic (lack of publicity, the organiser failed to use social media to promote the event) and so was the official website (it was down during matches and not up to date).

If the organiser is serious in having another event next year, please stop syiok sendiri or might as well just scrap the event and stop wasting the people's money.

Rendy Lu Yen-hsun back in Taiwan for X'mas celebration

Just a little update on our boy, Asia's no.1 Rendy Lu Yen-hsun.

Rendy has just completed his off season training in Kenya last Saturday.

He should be back in Taipei by now to celebrate X'mas with his family and friends.

Chennai Open will be Rendy's first tournament next year.

We hope he'll bounce back and achieve better rankings in 2010 after a setback in the second half of this year due to flu.
