Mornin.' Am I the only one who assumed that the Power Horse World Team Cup competition, now underway in Dusseldorf was - rather bizarrely - sponsored by an American company that manufactures log splitters, pressure-washers, and other gear for the hard working- or playing - man (or woman)?

But no, for those of you who need to know, Power Horse is an Austrian conceived made energy drink, albeit with a decidedly "American" marketing tone and strategy - as the website says, "Power Horse - take it on!"

Whether you're watching/following the WTC in Dusseldorf, where the Americans are getting their fannies tanned (an appropriate punishment for having taken the last few weeks off), or Nice, where John Isner has at least advanced to the second round, feel free to express your opinion, vent your frustration, or wrote glowingly about the heroics of your favorites here. Enjoy the tennis. I'll be back with some thoughts on the French Open and Rafael Nadal later.

P.S. - Is there a better first name for a player than "Go" as in Go Soeda, of Japan, pictured above?
