Game Point: Stimulus dollars, comebacks and a packed house

Game Point is Busted Racquet's roundup of facts, figures and links about the tennis world.

Love -- I'd say interest in the first round at the Qatar ATP Open is strong to quite strong.

15 -- Nadia Petrova looked thrilled when she saw her draw at the Brisbane Invitational (hilarious pic courtesy Forty Deuce). As a reward for earning the No. 2 seed in the season-opening tournament, Petrova got to play Justine Henin in her return to tennis. The seven-time Grand Slam champion easily disptached Petrova in straight sets, 7-5, 7-5.

30 -- Andy Roddick also won in his 2010 debut. It also looks like he was finally able to get some proper-fitting clothes for the occasion.

40 -- Was this TMZ post about Derek Jeter playing tennis more about the tennis or the chance to show the Yankees shortstop without a shirt? Me thinks it's more from column B than column A.

Game --In case you were worried that the government wasn't spending stimulus dollars in the right way: The city of Bozeman, MT spent nearly $50,000 of its $621,000 in stimulus money to replace old tennis courts. Democrats and Republicans are busy pointing fingers at who's to blame, as if spring for new rubber surfacing needs an explanation.
