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.

US Open Favorites Still In

28 Aug

Despite having some stuff issues which in the media automatically means pregnancy, Maria Sharapova, cruised through the opening round of the US Open. Sharapova who is ranked third defeated Melinda Czink of Hungary, 6-2, 6-2 at Arthur Ashe Stadium. It seems like Sharapova is rebounded well after being crushed by Serena Williams at the Olympic where she lost 6-0, 6-1. Sharapova claims part of the reason she struggled against Williams was her weird stomach pains.

The other tennis champs are cruising on as well. Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray defeated Alex Bogomolov Jr., of Russsia, 6-2, 6-4, 6-1 on Monday. Roger Federer defeated Donald Young, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.

US Open favorite Serena Williams will play Tuesday against Coco Vandeweghe. Another US Open favorite Novak Djokovic, who has taken out Federer twice in the open, will play against Paolo Lorenzi Tuesday as well. Venus Williams will also take the court on Tuesday against fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Venus has been struggling so we will definitely have to see how far she makes it.

Serena is Smokin

24 Aug

Seriously Serena Williams looked amazing at her appearance the other night on Letterman. She deserves to look pretty before the US Open starts on Sunday and she has to spend her days sweaty. If you were curious her shoes are Christian Louboutins that cost $4,000. It pays to be good.

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 Is Back, Baby

5 Jul

She was never really gone in my opinion, but the Serena we all know and love came back with a vengeance Thursday.  She made her way to the Wimbledon final in record-setting fashion by serving 24 aces.  She is also the first player in her 30s to reach the final since Martina Navratilova made it there in 1990.

Serena overcame her opponent, Victoria Azarenka, in straight sets. She will face Agniezka Radwanska in the final on Saturday.  This will be the first Grand Slam final for Radwanska, and she will need all the help she can get if Serena is on her game like this.

Can we all forget about that fluke of a first-round loss in the French Open now? When Serena is on fire like she was during this match, it is fair to say that she is unstoppable.

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.

Wimbeldon: Sexist Loser & Winners

28 Jun

Wimbeldon is still going on. So here is quick break down of what happens. We will start with the loser.

LOSER

Gilles Simon– The French tennis players seems to think women don’t deserve equal prize money with men at Wimbeldon. Equal prize money has not been in place that long. Simon lost his second round match so I guess he’s jealous. He thinks that because men’s tennis is best of 5 matches(women’s is best of 3) that they should win more money.

He followed it up by saying, “I have the feeling that men’s tennis is actually more interesting than women’s tennis,” he said. “When that Shakira is singing, she is earning more money than most of the men because everyone wants to see her. That’s it.” I’m not sure that singing is a women’s domain . . .cough cough Frank Sinatra.

Maria Sharapova commented back, “”I’m sure there are a few more people that watch my matches than his, so…” And there you have it. Serena Williams added in, “”She’s[Sharapova] way hotter than he is.”Simon tried to come back by saying all male tennis players feel the same way he does. Sure they do.

I’m all for Sharapova killing Simon’s ass on the court.
