An encounter with a tennis gigolo

High angle view of a snake charmer playing the flute, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

It all started quite innocently. I went to the pro shop to buy some stuff. Because I had paid for the weekend of tennis, I was entitled to a sweet discount at the pro shop. So I’m there minding my own business, picking out tops, skorts and other pretty but practical outfits (not made of black lace, ha ha), when an Indian instructor came in and asked one of the instructors I… Continue

Imitating the pros: Knowing what to copy

 Former world number one Pete Sampras plays in an exhibition match at the SAP Open in San Jose

One of the most wonderful aspects of a Slam is the tremendous opportunities that amateur tennis players get to study the games of the pros. We can all learn a lot about how to play tennis from watching those who exceed in the sport. But it’s important to know exactly what you are copying. And more importantly, you need to make sure what is right for your… Continue

Venus’ panties vs. the Catsuit

US Open

...Venus Williams seems to have a proclivity for exhibitionism on the tennis court. It’s a character feature that seems inconsistent with the otherwise conservative, buttoned-down, lips-sealed, Jehovah-praising demeanor for which she is characteristically known. Venus’ private life does not show up in the gossip magazines. She normally comes as across as so… Continue

Tweeting on Tennis…or not


...Now to Serena. Of the sisters, she is by far the more prolific tweeter. She also wins any popularity contest hands down, with almost three times the followers to her sister Venus. But of the 40 tweets posted by Serena between May 16th @ 4:32pm and May 23rd @ 10:15am (my time), not a single one references tennis. She talks a lot about her spread for Harper’s Bazaar, about… Continue

Clay bunnies come out to play!

2010 French Open Roland Garros

This is probably my favorite time of year. I’m hedging only because I am a woman inclined to throw herself into passions and I can already imagine myself making the same claim at the start of the US Open. And yet I am not being a dilettante or dishonest in this claim. I truly love this time of year...

Aravane Rezai: Big Babe potential?


Well something had to snap me out of my stupor. I’ve been having the hardest time finding inspiration in tennis. I never thought that would ever happen to me. After all, I am too obsessed with the sport, too addicted to the game. And then one by one the Big Babes started getting injured, or pregnant, or side-lined by interests other than tennis. And the next thing I know, I had… Continue
