For removing the "No" in Novak. Until last year, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal dominated men's tennis and Novak Djokovic was the odd-man out. But last year he broke through with one of the best seasons ever: a 43-match win streak, three Major titles and the No. 1 ranking. He also revealed his devotion to CVAC's cozy pressure chamber and said it helped his body recover after matches. The egg-shaped pod compresses muscles while simulating high-altitude conditions to boost the amount of oxygen absorbed into the blood. Unlike a player's winning racket, there hasn't been a run on the chamber.

Wimbledon. Rafael Nadal. Roger Federer. An epic match.

Rafael Nadal is a "beast" according to Mary Carillo; and he proved it last Sunday. If you read this blog with any regularity you know that I am a tennis fan. I didn’t get a chance to watch the French Open final on Sunday. And that’s too bad, because I missed an impressive display of tennis. Nadal overwhelmed the world’s number one ranked player, Roger Federer, 6 -1, 6 – 3, 6-0. Did you see the match? What do you think?
