US Open Day 2: Yawn

29 Aug

So there were no exciting upsets on Day 2 of the US Open. There was also not much excitement at all. Players defeated opponents quickly and efficiently. Defending champion Novak Djokovic killed his opponent Italian Paolo Lorenzi 6-1, 6-0, 6-1. The match lasted all of 73 minutes and was pretty much an ass whooping.

Then Serena Williams defeated fellow American Coco Vandeweghe 6-1, 6-1. At this point it kind of seems like Serena could win in her sleep. Her sister Venus Williams on the other hand has been struggling. Venus has been trying to push past her autoimmune disease but fell short in the past. Venus did manage to defeat fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-3, 6-1.

So no close matches yet. Maybe there will be some excitement on Day 3 with Maria Sharapova and Andy Murray.

GOOD BLACK NEWS

Serena Williams demolished Russia’s Maria Sharapova 6-0 6-1 to grab Olympic tennis singles gold on Saturday, becoming the first player in the sport to win all four grand slams and an Olympic title in both singles and doubles.  Having completed the career “golden slam”, the unstoppable American, who dropped just 17 games in her six Olympics singles matches, is now making plans away from tennis.  “I’ve won everything. Now I can go to Disneyworld,” said the 30-year old, laughing.

Serena Wins Wimbledon

7 Jul

Serena Williams just won her 5th Wimbledon title on Saturday. She took out first-time finalist Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7. 6-2. That poor Polish girl didn’t stand a chance against Williams’ aces. She had 102 aces in the tournament and 4 in one game. That’s amazing considered she just recovered from foot surgery. This is Williams’ 14th major title.

The fun is not over for Williams who will be competing with Venus later today in the doubles final. We will be watching.

Serena Still in It

3 Jul

Serena Williams is moving on the Wimbledon semifinal after beating defending champion Petra Kvitova, 6-3, 7-5.  This is the eight time Williams has gone to the semifinals at Wimbledon. I think the feeling never gets old though judging by the look on her face. Next up Williams will face either second-ranked Victoria Azarenka or Tamira Paszek of Austria. I think to be truly good at tennis you must have a complicated foreign name.

Very exciting.

Sharapova Gone : (

2 Jul

Wimbledon is turning out a lot of upsets this year. First we save favorite and super hottie Rafael Nadal upset last week by Lukas Rosol. Now Maria Sharapova has fallen to 15th Ranked German, Sabine Lisicki. Sharapova lost 6-4, 6-3. It is sad to see her go because she was trying to become the first woman since Serena Williams in 2002 to win the French Open and Wimbledon in the same year.

Sharapova just won the French Open which completed her career Grand Slam. Serena Williams is still in it and has yet to play her 4th round. She will take on defending champion Petra Kvitova next.
