A very artsy video in which Roger Federer poses for Mario Testino for Credit Suisse. Federer, as always, looks very elegant. Enjoy!
Let’s Move! is an initiative created by Michelle Obama to combat the problem of obesity in children. The USTA recently collaborated with the campaign and created this PSA to promote tennis as one way for children to stay active and live healthier lifestyles.
Maybe Andre can come back to the US Open as a ballboy, he's pretty good at it! Enjoy!
Photographers at Davis Cup practice caught Rafael Nadal sharing an intimate moment with his tennis ball. I hope Xisca doesn't mind.....

Don't worry, I am not going to bore you with Greek mythology, (even though I personally enjoy it). Instead I am going to give you the story in pictures of Stanislas Wawrinka's Homer Simpson Odyssey. I'm not really sure how it started or why, but at the beginning of the year Stan began taking a little figurine of Homer Simpson around with him everywhere and has been snapping pictures of him on the ATP tour. It's Stan's life through Homer's eyes, and it's really cute and very funny. Here are some pictures:
Ok, first off, my title isn't that great. I know it, I couldn't think of anything else, I'm moving on...
Third Time: Novak Djokovic won the Dubai Duty Free Championships in straight sets over Roger Federer, 6-3, 6-3. He has now won this title for the 3rd time in a row, joining Roger as the only other man to complete the hat trick. He is 12 - 0 in 2011, and I really think he has a great shot at winning at least another Major this year if he continues this form.
Second Time: David Ferrer won the Mexican Open for the 2nd year in a row defeating compatriot Nicolas Almagro in 7-6 (5), 6-7 (2), 6-2. This is Ferrer's 2nd ATP title this year.

Not in a long time: Vera Zvonareva hadn't won a title in over a year until this weekend when she defeated number 1 Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-4 at the Qatar Ladie's Open. This is her 11th WTA title.
And last but not least...
I can comfortably say that Juan Martin del Potro is officially back. Today he won his first ATP title since 2009, taking out Janko Tipsaravic at the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships 6-4, 6-4. I'll be honest, I was rooting for Tipsy to win this because it would have been his first ATP title and also because my title would have been better: First Time, Second Time, Third Time, and Not in a Long Time. Oh well. It's good to see Delpo back. Although he doesn't seem so happy in this picture.
I completely forgot Gisela Dulko! (Sorry girl). She won her 4th WTA title at the Mexican Open. Doesn't she look cute in her sombrero!!
Rafael Nadal recently shot a Banesto commercial while at home in Mallorca. It was shot in Manacor's Plaza de Sa Bassa right in front of his family's townhouse and Rafa's grandfather can be seen chatting out the window at the 20 second mark. Enjoy!
Here are the player party videos for the Dubai Duty Free Championships. The women's video is definitely better because there are some interviews, as well as Petko on a camel and Aga getting a tattoo. The one good thing about the men's video? Nole dancing.
