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 […]

Stuff Happened This Week, Kind Of

I haven’t had all that much to write about lately. I know the women’s Year End Championships are going on this week in Doha and I am keeping tabs on it, but still, things haven’t exactly been exciting. If you’ve got any questions about Doha, check out my Decoding Doha article at TennisGrandstand. Doha Semifinals […]

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.

Rain Can’t Keep Andy Murray Down

During the second rain delay in today’s Toronto final, both Federer and Murray seemed to be ready to play through the miniscule amount of precipitation.

It’s Friday

You know what that means, it’s quarter finals day in Toronto. I feel like I just left the lovely city and all the big names were still confined to the practice courts instead of the stadiums, but that was already a week ago. A number of favorites have passed us by and we’re into the […]

So Canada and America Are Actually Different?

Ok, so I think I’ve officially started this post 10 times in my attempt to be witty; however, the exhaustion has set in and I’m pretty sure that my attempts at humor have only been funny to me. I think I’ll just keep it simple and give you guys a general recap of my weekend. […]
