Danai finds a better racket

Danai and mum-to-be Charinporn.

Congratulations to Thai tennis ace Danai udomchoke who expects his first child with his wife charinporn in February.



He is on top of the world to hear such news as he thought all along that it would be difficult as his wife has a blocked Fallopian tube.

It has been three years since his marriage. Now his wife has conceived and Danai is very excited.

His wife says the tennis ace is very protective of her. "Before I had to carry my suitcase if we travelled together, but now he doesn't allow me to carry any weight, not even a few dishes."

Danai has also laid out a grand plan for the baby's career even before he knows the sex of the child. He says he hopes his child will pursue a golf career as the sport allows people to play for a long time.

"I don't want my kid to play taekwando or boxing as the sport will only allow you to compete once every four years in a major competition like the Olympics, but golf can be played for competition all year round," he says. How about tennis? He thought about it, but realised one can play golf until he/she ages.

Certainly, in term of money and prizes golf has more to offer too. Well, father knows best.

Got Gangnam?

Britney Spears has become the most recent global star to capture the "Gangnam Style" craze, following Robbie Williams and Katy Perry. On Wednesday, she tweeted the link to the South Korean's hit song and said: "I am LOVING this video - so fun! Thinking that I should possibly learn the choreography. Anybody wanna teach me?! Haha."

Perhaps Britney need not go to learn with Psy, who composed the song and choreographed the dance. She could try covering it like Thai singer Cutto Lipa, who is having a viral hit on YouTube with his "Psy- Gangnam Style parody". He made it with a group called Sua Ronghai, also featuring Kodey, Eddy and Natty. The title is "Gumnan Style" (gumnan means a village head in Thai).
