Video: Emo Andy

This is a HIGHlarious video that Andy Murray did for Red Nose Day, where he basically pokes fun at himself and how the British media portray him.

What is Red Nose Day you ask?  From the website:

Red Nose Day is a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the process. It all culminates in a night of cracking TV on the BBC with some of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment.  And the best bit? All the fun and mayhem helps to raise cash and transform lives across the UK and Africa.

The best quote from the video:  "You reckon there is any chance that we can do another one (photo) where you try and look more you.  Like, EMO."

Golden.

Messages To Japan

Although this week has been filled with tennis, it has been impossible to ignore the the catastrophic chain of events that has happened in Japan, which was recently devastated by an earthquake, subsequent tsunamis, and now is in a nuclear crisis.  Several of the tennis stars at the BNP Paribas Open have been sending their well wishes to Japan in various ways.  Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal created the video above to send their support.  In addition, Novak also placed his support in an interesting place, his knee.

Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka expressed their support after their quarter-final match today.  Caroline had her manager drive 2 hours from Indian Wells to find a Japanese flag.

I have been looking at the news, and it's just devastating to see what's going on in Japan and all the families and people affected there. We just wanted to show that we're thinking about them over there. It's tough for us to do something, but at least we thought this was the least we could do.

There has been some talk of the ATP and WTA having a joint fundraiser to raise money for the victims in Japan, and I will keep you posted.

Injury Update: Victoria Azarenka and Tommy Robredo

Photo: Reuters

Let's just say that today was not a good day for the tournament director or the ticketed fans at the BNP Paribas Open.  First, Victoria Azarenka retired from her quarter-final match against Caroline Wozniacki due to a hip injury that she sustained in the 3rd game of the opening set after stretching to return a shot.  She took a prolonged medical time out, played two more points, but then retired after consulting with her team.  She also had to withdraw from her upcoming doubles match with partner Maria Kirilenko

About 30 minutes later Tommy Robredo pulled out of his quarter-final match giving Juan Martin del Potro a walkover, due to a left abductor injury that happened during his previous match against Sam Querrey

Victoria is still slated to play in the upcoming Sony Ericsson Open later this month, but unfortunately, Robredo has pulled out of Miami due to the strain.

Caroline's next opponent will be the winner of Shuai Peng/Maria Sharapova, and Del Potro will play the winner of Rafael Nadal/Ivo Karlovic.

Novak Djokovic Does Cockpit Check For "Wingtennis" Stunt

Novak Djokovic regresses to a 8 year old in this video and does a little pretend play in the cockpit of the plane that he is supposed to do his "Wingtennis" stunt.   He always looks like he is having a great time no matter what he is doing.

To learn more about this stunt, click here.

Do you think Nole is really going to play tennis on a plane?  We'll all find out on March 21st.
