Time‘s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World came out today, and it includes Roger Federer. (via Rachel Sklar for Eat The Press)

– Get 10% off Puma French 77 gear via the Puma website. (Here are my top picks.) Just make sure to enter the code FR77 when you check out.

– Here’s a little peek from The Independent into the life of the ATP’s most famous blogger, Dmitry Tursunov. His blog turns one this week.

– China finally gets to hang with the big boys. The Xinhua news agency reports on SEWTA CEO Larry Scott’s visit to Beijing. The tour will open a regional office there next year to help with marketing and promoting the sport.

    All this China/Asia tennis talk from the ATP and WTA makes me think they helped with a bid for the Olympics. Officials get greased. Can’t do money anymore, look at the Salt Lake City Olympic bribery scandal. I don’t know if de Villiers was still involved at the time of the Formula I race car payoff scandal but he had his foot in the deal. “You get Beijing 2008 and we get ATP/WTA tournaments.”

    You know they are going to build the facilities but wouldn’t you like a say in construction? With such a large emerging market, as they are quick to quote, you wouldn’t want them to set up their own tournaments in which you don’t own a piece of the pie? Hmm… what were the ATP/WTA brass and Scott/deV up to in July 2001?

    excerpt:

    “April 12, 2007 — For the past two years, China has protected the Sudanese government as the United States and Britain have pushed for United Nations Security Council sanctions against Sudan for the violence in Darfur.

    But in the past week, strange things have happened. A senior Chinese official, Zhai Jun, traveled to Sudan to push the Sudanese government to accept a United Nations peacekeeping force.”
