My New Year wish of healing for Nadal

ATP World Tour Finals - Day Six

If Nadal lived in the US, his parents’ divorce would have been plastered across the front page of gossip magazines everywhere. Speculations about the real cause of the divorce would have been rife, and lovers would have been invented for both parties, with quotes being attributed to unnamed ‘close personal friends’ and ‘insiders’, to avoid lawsuits.

Right now, men's tennis is all kinds of awesome

Barclays ATP World Tour Finals - Media Day

I have been on such a high. My high started with the released photo of the group of men finalists all dressed in suits. Some of them looked as if they had never put on a suit before and couldn’t wait to wrench it off their bodies and go back to being sweaty. Others looked as if they were born to be dressed by Anna Wintour. Either way, they all looked all kinds of awesome, a… Continue

The London draw, in haiku

Andy Murray Promotes Barclays ATP World Tour Finals At O2

Group A

(1) Roger Federer

Twin motives remind

The king, that win, draw, or lose,

Love still waits at home.

(4) Andy Murray

Irked by the sense

Of being discounted, eclipsed

London is his chance.

Serena vs. Andre: A tale of dueling memoirs

Andre Agassi Book Signing Las Vegas

...Like Serena, Andre has been doing the rounds promoting this book. Like Serena he has been hopping from one continent to another, submitting to interviews and fan-filled book signings. Except that unlike Serena, Andre is a thoughtful and self-revelatory interview subject. Here is a report written by Elaine “Lainey” Lui, a Special Correspondent for Canadian TV who… Continue

The Super-Sebian versus the French Clown

ATP Masters Series Paris - Day Six

...Monfils’ passive and lame-brained approach to tennis will not work against Djokovic tomorrow. In fact, I did not expect it to work today against Stepanek. I am still stunned that it did. Indeed, after watching Djokovic blow Nadal off the court, I left home and went to play tennis myself, confident that I would come home to the news of a Djokovic vs. Stepanek finals. I have… Continue

Can Philippoussis find happiness with a Cougar?

Aussie Millions Celebrity Challenge

...When Mark Philippoussis embarrassed himself and all of tennis by appearing on a reality show looking for a woman, I could barely watch for shame. He had the choice of “Cougars” or “Kittens”. Most of the women had that sheen of desperation one comes to expect of women who go on reality shows to find fame, I mean a mate. Mark seemed wooden, lost, vapid. Even Flava Flav… Continue

Who does Oudin mean by “some people”?

Italy v USA - Fed Cup World Group Final Day Two

The US just lost the Fed Cup title to Italy. The US would more than likely have won the Fed Cup title if either of the Williams sisters had played. The US would definitely have won the Fed Cup title if both of the sisters had played. The US needs the Williams sisters. That is the plain truth.

What’s behind Serena’s Fed Cup withdrawal?

Sony Ericsson Championships - Doha 2009 - Day Six

Barely a week ago, The International Tennis Federation (ITF) confirmed Serena as part of the team representing the US in the upcoming Federation Cup finals match. I was more than a bit surprised because Serena has not played Fed Cup all year. But the decision seemed in keeping with her thrust to close out 2009 in a spectacular fashion. (She must still be pissed over losing at… Continue
