VIDEO VAULT: Wozniacki gets worked on and over

"Life on the tennis tour isn't glamorous." Whoever said that is a fucking liar. Just watch this video from the WTA. And just to rub it in they zoom in and follow Caroline Wozniacki as stylists, including Oriflame's Jonas Wramell, brush, pull and primp at the Dane to get her ready for a baller party.

Yeah, they're right. This totally looks like work. Sorta like my job but without the hair, makeup, pretty clothes, stylists, cameras, electronica soundtrack and birds:

VIDEO VAULT: It's all fun and games at Madison Square Garden

Struggling Andy Roddick STUNNED the tennis world when he shocked Dubai champ Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (7) in the opening, er, only round at tonight's BNP Paribas Showdown at Madison Square Garden. "I feel like Jeremy Lin wanted me to win," said A-Rod afteward. No doubt.

Some other stuff happened, too, involving a dancing Maria Sharapova, Caroline Wozniacki (who lost to Shrieka 6-3, 6-4) and the Dane's boy toy, top golfer Rory McIlroy (all I have to say is "hair" and "why?"). See video.

If there was more tournaments on these courts, I think he could definitely be No. 1 in the world for the next few years.

- Andy Murray on Roger Federer's stellar play on the fast courts of Dubai

I was actually thinking about this very thing after reading that Fed won Dubai for the fifth time over the weekend. His last four titles before this one were all on indoor hard aka FAST: Rotterdam, ATP World Tour Finals in London, Paris Masters and Basel. He likes speed. Always has, always will.

But, do I think he could be the top baller over the likes of Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal over the next few years if more surfaces were quicker? Nope. Let's be real. While it's his best chance, he's not going to blow them off any surface consistently anymore, and not enough to grab the top spot. He'd be in the mix and would even sneak in another major. That's it, which is still impressive for someone at this point in their career.

But it's all just talk. We'll never know because the tourneys aren't going to all of sudden quicken up the courts. Me thinks Muzz might've had his tail tucked in between his legs a bit after this loss.
