No two tennis shots are alike

Following my first-round loss at this year's French Open, I was in the locker room icing down my elbow. The scene was fairly typical. Several players were in the training room getting massages or icing after their matches or practice. Others were getting stretched out before their day's labor. Still more players were in the small workout facility, which adjoins the locker room, getting their juices flowing by either hopping on the stationary bike, taking a run on the treadmill, using workout bands, or in the case of Paradorn Srichaphan, shadow boxing for 10 minutes (the guy looked like he could go the distance with "Marvelous" Marvin Hagler).

Finally, there was the one constant you can always count on -- Nicolas Massu standing in front of a mirror combing his Fabio-esque hair. (I swear he is auditioning to be Danielle Steel's next cover-boy).
