On the move

On the move, going to Atlanta loving the fact that Venus Williams is back on form and that Federer is king of the world.

Dear Funmi,

I also love the fact that Venus is back!

However, I wanted Rafael "Hotter-tahn-Fire" Nadal. In my books, he is Rafael "His-Royal-Handsomeness" Nadal!!!

Have fun in Atlanta o!!

The Williams sisters are an inspiration to everyone out there who has a dream, fights the odds to achieve it, holds on to the people they love even when it might often be easier to walk away, never forgets the day the shit hit them in the face, chooses to be or not to be part of the establishment, and refuses to apologise for being fat-black-poor-female-imperfect-disabled-religious-whatever.
As for Federer, erm...
Fums - should we watch out for you on CNN or something?

Really happy that Venus is back in form! As for Federer, did not really want him to win. Meeeen that guy has made guys like Safin, Hewit, Davydenko and Roddick regret being in the same generation with him!

@ anonymous 1, l feel you about rafeal jare that is one nice cupcake but federer l suspect going to be one of the greatest from this era pity he isint better eye candy but hey cant have it all can you?

@nigeria politricks, got my mail? still kicking myself for not being able to hook up with you.

@ anonymous 2. Of course they are full blooded Nigerians! Venus looks kinda ogbomosho like me doesnt she?;-) and l swear that the great good and luscious serena must be from the niger delta. Ewu claimer! Those gals are a total inspiration and the rock to boot. wonder though how many serenas and venus nigeria could have produced? Not only would they not be discovered, not have turnaments to hone their skills but will also have be harrased and cursed into repressing their personality and sensuality. Whilst we are on this topic, do you know that about 18 out of the players at the recent under 20 world cup in toronto were Nigerians playing for other countries?
