Well, thank goodness.
At last, Roger Federer has come to his sense and listened to my advice.
All year I've been muttering that he should get a coach so that he can win more Grand Slams.
And, now he's gone me one better.
Not only did he get a coach, but he got Jose Higueras, a clay court specialist, and immediately, it payed off.
Federer won the Estoril Open on clay in Portugal this weekend, and heads now to Monte Carlo, Rome and Hamburg before tackling Roland Garros where Rafael Nadal has won the final..is it 3 or 4 years straight? - now.
Now if only Tiger will listen to me about his swing....

Corrections Canada has much to answer for.
But it will never be held accountable for its consistently dreadful managment of its repsonsibilities.
A dangerous offender, killer and rapist has now escaped and is on the lam.
He walked away from Ferndale MINIMUM SECURITY prison.
What was this man doing in a MINIMUM SECURITY prison?
Did someone with their wooly-headed social worker vest on decide that Blane was now a nice guy?
Now, Corrections Canada is preparing for No Smoking in prisons, even outdoors. Good luck.
I have a suggestion.
Just let all the smokers in the prisons stand outside the main gates. I'm sure that'll be ok....

Farm workers can get in line behind children, the elderly, addicts and the homeless when it comes to attention and cocern in this province.
This is a Power Province and our Premier has his own addiction - power. he is interested in powerful men, men who make the earth move with ther money. Builders and buyers.
Immigrant, elderly, women farm workers, up at 4, at work at 6, 17 to a rickety van with no seat belts, this is supposed to be os some interest to Mr. Raise-a-Reader, Mr. Children's Hospital Foundation?
Where is the foto-op?
In the Vaisakhi Parade, he can play Mr. Dress Up.
But for the farm workers, he would actually have to enact legislation that protects these poor souls and then spend public money on inspectors that police the laws.
Remember that 3 days after the highway "accident" (waiting to happen) last year, the same farm was sheparding the same workers in the same dangerous way into crowded vans.
Nothing changes when nobody cares.
And nobody cares when political advantage is the sole motivator.
