Sorry to go off topic but wanted to post a nice interview with Rafa about his return to playing and about his injury, recovery and time off.

Hi beth, I was wondering where everyone is. Thought everyone had gone to Jamaica for Reggae Sumfest. LOL. Savannah has a very hilarious post up about Roger and the twins and Rafa and Montreal. I saw the Rafa interview.
Is everyone waiting around until Montreal/Cincy run for the men and Toronto/Cincy for the women to come around. Think now is a perfect time to discuss all aspects of tennis (as if we dont do that enough around here). A bit concerned about Graf-Sampras as have not seen him/her around since Wimbledon. Graf-Sampras if you are around, we miss your long posts man.
