WTF Final Thoughts, Almost

What did I learn from the 2010 WTF? You can’t manufacture drama. Matches between the two best players in the world always have a certain dramatic flair, particularly when the two best players have one of the most famous tennis rivalries of all time, but the media hype around this match was astounding, not to […]

Hilarity Ensues

So, I saw that someone posted this gem on twitter earlier this week and couldn’t help but share. What have we learned? Before we go any further, I should note that the most advanced photo editing software I own is Paint. You’ve been warned, so proceed with caution. In a movie about his life, Novak […]

WTF Finals

So I’ve managed to borrow a computer to write this and have planted myself firmly in front of the TV for today. At the moment I’m watching a repeat of yesterday’s semifinals, which means some pretty great tennis. As I expected, Nadal and Federer emerged as victors and will play each other in today’s final. […]

WTF Day 6 & 7

I’m visiting home for Thanksgiving and for some reason, my computer and my parents’ wifi don’t get along. All week, I’ve had a couple of brief windows to use the internet, which has hampered both my ability to write about tennis and find spectacular shopping deals. Anyway, I wasn’t able to write a preview for […]

WTF Day 5

It’s nearly 3am and I’m pretty exhausted so I’m planning on keeping tonight’s entry short. Today or Yesterday, I’m not really sure anymore, Day 4, one thing I expected happened and one thing I definitely didn’t expect happened. First, Rafael Nadal beat Novak Djokovic, winning both of his round robin matches so far. I honestly […]

WTF Day 3

Unfortunately I spent most of my day at the airport (thank you AirTran,) which meant I did not get the opportunity to watch any of the WTF matches, but I did follow my twitter very closely. I honestly thought I would be reporting some very surprising news tonight, as Andy Roddick was up a set […]

WTF Day 1

Tomorrow marks the start of the 2010 World Tour Finals in at the O2. The only time I’ve missed living in London more than now was during Wimbledon. Somehow I chose the six months that did not include two of the best tennis tournaments in the world. Anyway, Group B is in action, which means […]

The Calm Before the Final Storm

Hi guys. So, I haven’t completely fallen off the face of the earth, but close to it. Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching and apparently that means tons of exams for this college senior. Luckily, this ridiculous workload coincides with some downtime in the tennis world. Anyway, things are heating up again next week and I’ll be […]

Last Week, In Photos

So, Roger Federer played his first tournament since the US Open in Shanghai, and didn’t look a bit rusty. He made the final. Oh yeah, and they gave him a pretty spectacular entrance. Check out this photo, fog and all. The only way this could’ve been better is if they lowered him onto Center Court […]
