Dear ATP Players,

Dear ATP Players,

Could you guys be a little more interesting? Please? I would love to blog about you but you guys just never do anything interesting enough to blog about. I mean can we get some drama, please? Someone, have a kid, get married, retire unexpectedly, punch a photographer in the face, anything! Why won’t any of you guys do something questionable so I can accuse you of being gay. Its one of my favorite pastimes. Just do something! I want to write about you, I really do, but you guys are going to have to help me out here.
