"In 2001 I flew back from a tournament in Tokyo to play in my first Davis Cup match in North Carolina. I had three stairs in my room, and I woke up in the middle of the night. I ended up falling down them because I was so tired and had no idea what time it was or where I was. I ended up being fine and just needed more rest. Getting on the right schedule and drinking enough are the most important things to do to get rid of jet lag. Staying hydrated is really key. I don't think people realize that sometimes you can't sleep because you're dehydrated. I've never taken any sleeping pills; I recover as quickly as my body allows me to." - James Blake, pro tennis player and best-selling author of 'Breaking Back: How I Lost Everything and Won Back My Life.'
