Quote of the Day: Marat Safin dumps Novak Djokovic

"He's the one who has to win matches. For me, nobody expects anything."
~ Marat Safin

Probably this is the best news ever. Thank you Safinator! I've never really been a fan of Djokovic. With him out of the 2008 Championships, there's now a high possibility for us to see Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to go head-to-head again in the Wimbledon final.

It's great to see Marat Safin, the former world no. 1, gaining back his confidence again. Perhaps his little sister, Dinara Safina inspires him to make a strong come back?

Who has bigger arms than Rafael Nadal?

Rafael Nadal is well known for his big biceps. But do you know which female player has bigger arms than him?

Eva Hrdinov has it and it's a bit scary. Well, it's not only because it looks awful but it reminds me about my very huge fat arms.

For the past week, I did not have time to blog due to adjusting my working life in the KL city, for the first time. All these while, it's always in PJ, in my comfort zone. So, now I have to wake up really early in the morning to beat the traffic and reach home late at night to avoid the traffic.

So, to kill time after work, I've decided it's best for me to go to gym and get rid of my fats. While getting my card for the free 10 trial sessions at Menara SPK yesterday, I saw Robb Chew of Nuffnang who is registering for the first time too. I said hi and he's very friendly too. This morning, I went for my first session of weight training and saw him again.

Now I'm very tired from the RPM class in the evening. So that's all folks, goodnight!

Rafael Nadal secret girlfriend revealed

Bad news for all Rafael Nadal's female fans.

Actually this isn't new but finally Uncle Toni revealed that Nadal is dating Xisca, a stunning dark-haired girl he once went to school with.

Twenty-year-old Maria Francisca Perello, who comes from Nadal’s home town in Majorca, has been dating the player for three years (if some of you still haven't know).

But Xisca keeps away from the spotlight and rarely watches her boyfriend play, partly because she does not wish to distract him.

Uncle Toni said, "I guess a lot of girls will be upset to know the truth."
"My nephew always maintained he was single. It was a well-kept secret but actually his girlfriend is waiting for him in Majorca."
Described by friends as ‘an intelligent girl from a good local family’, Xisca is about to take her important exams in business at university in Majorca’s capital, Palma.

Her cousin Maria Perello Limones said, "She is a straightforward, no-nonsense girl not interested in glamour and fame."

"You won’t see her rolling out of a nightclub or laden down with designer bags after a shopping spree."

That is just as well, because despite his wealth and fame, Nadal is a simple hometown boy who likes relaxing on the beach, fishing and sharing long meals with his family.

He still lives with his parents and sister in their luxury apartment. Friend Pedro Hernadez explains, "Raf and Xisca are both very shy and ordinary people who like to live simply."
"They are not at all interested in a celebrity lifestyle. They get together when the tournaments are over. That’s how Raf winds down."
When back home in Manacor, an unfashionable industrial town in the heart of Majorca, Nadal and Xisca while away the days at the beach in nearby Porto Cristo. They also spend a lot of time with each other’s families and Xisca is very close to Nadal’s grandmother.

Earlier this year it was suggested that Nadal was infatuated with Danish tennis sensation Caroline Wozniacki, 18.
But the relationship has been denied by both Nadal and Wozniacki.

Indeed, his grandfather, also Rafael, confirmed, "I saw him and Xisca just before he flew to London and they looked great together."

Wimbledon starts today!

5 Wimbledon trophies in a row and aiming for another one this year for Roger Federer?

I'd say, Rafael Nadal must be really bored being the runner up in the last two years.

Wimbledon starts today and every one do watch out! Nadal is aiming to be the #1 here. At least subconsciously, he is already working on it!
