Australian pro Samuel Groth probably won't be watching the Seven Samurai on the plane, Chanelle Scheepers gets her first taste of heaven and Mardy Fish goes on the ride of his life. Here's this week's best from the the tennis Twitterverse.

Tweet of the Week: There are quite a few fake player accounts on Twitter (all used for humor purposes, of course), but none are as good as @PseudoFed. Here's his tweet after making the Dubai final:

1. When in Rome: Fish's stay in Dubai was short-lived, but at least he got the one souvenir that everyone needs when they visit the Middle East: a picture with a camel. https://twitter.com/#!/MardyFish/status/174541919031009280
