    So, I'm still sat here waiting for Jay to get back.

    I've been bumming around the Internet trying to resist coming on here and typing utter balls just to pass the time and then I found this:

    Davydenko fined for "lack of effort"
    Eurosport - Fri, 26 Oct 16:03:00 2007

    World number four Nikolay Davydenko has been fined $2,000 for not trying hard enough during his shock defeat by Croatian qualifier Marin Cilic at the St Petersburg Open.

    It really amused me. Especially when he made the valid point "How does he know what I was trying to do?". I can't count the times where I've tried hard to do something and people have assumed it was easy and asked me to do better. Never during a major tennis tournament though. And I've most definately never been fined $2,000 for it.

    I'm off to search for more amusing headlines from the day.
