Do people sometimes get “lucky” and become wealthy or famous with little effort? Of course. A lottery is won by someone every time it is run. Look at the odds though. That just shows how big the mental game is at the top level. I go as far to say as its 75% of tennis in the top 50. Yes Wawrinka can suddenly become Stanimal(even then do you really think there is nothing you can do to beat him? If Djokovic was so strong mentally he would have found a way to stay in there and maybe even come back.), but there really isn any difference in skill once you get to the top 50..
DENIAL: Chief executive Garry CookGet Manchester City FC updates directly to your inboxSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribing!Manchester City have pledged a full and frank investigation into the origin of a highly embarrassing email which appeared to mock the seriously ill mother of Nedum Onuoha.The Blues reacted after the revelation that Dr Anthonia Onuoha, who also acts as the defender’s agent, had received a message which came from chief executive Garry Cook’s email address.It appeared to be intended for football administration officer Brian Marwood.Dr Onuoha is reported to have notified Marwood and Cook in October that she had been “ravaged by cancer and ongoing chemotherapy”.She received a message two weeks later, which she believes was from Cook.It said: “Brian, Ravaged with it!! I don’t know how you sleep at night. You used to be such a nice man when I worked with you at Nike. G.”City claim that an investigation was launched at the time, as Cook denied sending the email and alleged his account had been hacked when he was on holiday in South Africa.He is reputed to have said a member of his staff had sent the email as a joke.Blues chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak will head the City inquiry, which will focus on Cook and Marwood.Both men are currently on holiday and the decision to hold a “board led review” of the matter came after lengthy discussions with al Mubarak and other members of the board.”I would like to think it’s as Garry Cook says, that he has not been involved and someone has got into his emails.”I can’t imagine it’s something that Garry, in his position as head of a football club, would do, reacting to an email like that.”If Garry says he isn’t personally involved, we would all like to think that’s the truth, and the end of the matter.”He has done a fantastic job over the last 18 months.
Tucking four kids into bed that night, I silently congratulated myself on a good weekend. I’d come to Disney to shoot a pilot TV show for Family Fun. We’d spent two days on set and then the rest of the time had been the kids’ reward: combing the parks for Disney character autographs for the twins and thrill seeking rides for the older two.
