Осень опять надевается с рукавов,
Электризует волосы - ворот узок.
Мальчик мой, я надеюсь, что ты здоров
И бережёшься слишком больших нагрузок.
Мир кладёт тебе в книги душистых слов,
А в динамики - новых музык.
Город после лета стоит худым,
Зябким, как в семь утра после вечеринки.
Ничего не движется, даже дым.
Только птицы под небом плавают, как чаинки,
И прохожий смеется паром, уже седым.

Tursunov stirs L.A. tennis

The Russian player enlivens the star-depleted tournament with post-victory mentions of walnuts, Streisand and voodoo.
By Lisa Dillman, Times Staff Writer
July 17, 2007

Early days of one-week tennis events are often a lot like following a baseball team playing out the string in August.

Or at least until Dmitry Tursunov strolls into the interview room.

The Moscow-born, Northern California-based Tursunov enlivened the proceedings at UCLA last year, reaching his first ATP tour final before losing to Tommy Haas in the Countrywide Classic.

Though slowed by an injured left wrist earlier this year, he didn't disappoint in his first appearance back in Los Angeles. The fifth-seeded Tursunov was efficient in his 6-1, 6-4 victory against Danai Udomchoke of Thailand in the opening round and will next play Vincent Spadea or Thiago Alves of Brazil.

Tursunov versus Spadea could be fascinating. Blogger against the rapper/author.

Spadea was his own best salesman for his co-written book "Break Point" last summer, and Tursunov gained a bit of underground fame with his blogging insights at tour life.

So, if Tursunov is the higher-ranked player, who is the better writer, Spadea or Tursunov?

"Writer or rapper?" Tursunov said.

Good question, that.

"I don't know," he said. "I've never seen him write. But he does have a book. We're both considered class clowns, but don't know who is the bigger one," Tursunov said.

Tursunov said he backed off on his blogging — though third-seeded Marat Safin, who pulled out a 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (2) victory later on Monday, could have been a full-time subject.

Tursunov's mind has been occupied elsewhere. The 24-year-old suffered the injury, to his wrist tendon, in January, and didn't really hit stride until reaching the semifinals in back-to-back grass-court events, at Queen's Club and Nottingham in June.

"I tried lot of therapy, little voodoo … don't write that down," he said. "People think that what I say is true — like my Barbra Streisand addiction, walnut shell collection."

Yes, it was probably the first time voodoo, Streisand and walnut shells have been used in the same quote. He did deliver some pertinent observations on developing interest in the sport.

"They have to promote it more and put it more on TV," he said. "You have poker 24 hours a day and rock-paper-scissors competition. So I think people want to see that more than they want to see tennis…. Players [need to] put forth a little more effort to promote it any way they can.

"You don't have to walk out there and beat your chest and scream, 'Tennis is the best sport ever.' But I think you could be more friendly with the fans and do a little bit more to make the fans want to come back again."
