    The Indian Wells-Miami Losers Lounge Is Open

    for business!

    Oh the joy - played just right, you could spend almost a month in here. And given the names that you will have to choose from on Day 1 (have you looked at qualies?) for the Pacific Life Open, there's a good chance many people will be looking for a stool starting Wednesday.

    We'll have a few days of live coverage from the Indian Wells Tennis Garden starting this coming weekend, so be sure to stop by often.

    Wozniacki and Errani bandwagaons are nervous.

    I was looking through the 2007 PLO@IW (BTW, all credit to our Scotty for the ingenious shorthand for The Pacific Life Open at Indian Wells), and it seems that Wozniacki was also among the two most popular picks for Day 1 in 2007, if you believe in omens.

    Then again, if we believed in omens, Tatiana Golovin would never be picked again in an SP.

    Dry is too busy celebrating Rika trip back to Japan.

    The Jukebox from hell is here
    Just put in a quarter and play any song you think is horrible.

    We also have a fully stocked bar, so you may get as drunk as you want. If you haven't noticed, we've done some renovating

    That bar looks too nice for most of this crowd.

    Ms. Pironkova has requested Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" and to be played on the jukebox for Moose.

    "You must not know 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me..."


    Destiny's Child's "Survivor" was also considered but deemed too good for the Jukebox since it featured more than just Ms. Knowles

    Pironkova's father's name is Kiril, which I am wondering if it might be a Bulgarian derivation of my own first name.

    Not that her father and me sharing a name is going to spare her from being tripped as she walks out onto the court for her 2nd round match on Friday.

    It isn't.

    Awesome! I am going to be the first person in this year. I'll just order a cold beverage and curl up on the couch for the next two weeks.

    Sorry, no. Karl/Charles is teutonic/Norse, Cyril/Kyril is of Greek origin.

    The Slavic equivalent for your name is Karol, although I don't think it's used in Bulgaria. But the word for "king" in a lot of Slavic countries is derived from it, so you can technically claim to have given a name to Evgeny Korolev

    And the derivation of Domachowska? I'm thinking it's Polish for "I suck at this game".
