  1. >I get a NYT News Tracker ad from your Jolly Green Newbie link, but I presume that you are referring to Mr. Djokovic who, from my point of view, possesses everything a tennis star should: a comely neck, a surprising speed (he is a giant, after all), and an articulate humility.

    But then Roger has that fantastic all-black costume, complete with tuxedo stripes along the sides of his shorts.

    Decisions, decisions…

    >I don’t know why Roger’s link isn’t working, but he’s talking about John Isner. They’re scheduled to play on Arthur Ashe stadium tomorrow.

    Personally, I will be following the Blake/Koubek match tomorrow with bated breath. Go Blake! And to keep this OT, I say Go Serena! Serena Williams was photographed last December carrying a book I published, Gideon the Cutpurse. She said she had read it on her flight to the Australian Open. Ok you writers out there–what sightings have you had of people reading your books?
