Andrea’s Top Five…of the 2011 Australian Open

Best Matches 5. Marin Cilic def. John Isner 4-6 6-2 6-7 7-6 9-7: You can basically make any joke you want when John Isner is involved in long matches nowadays. I think we should seriously consider limiting him to five tiebreak sets, but I’ll leave that up to the powers that be. While this match […]

WTF Day 6 & 7

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

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 […]
