Friday Funnies – US Open Edition

Alright, I know I kind of retired Friday Funnies (and it’s technically not even Friday in my timezone anymore), but there’s been a lot of great videos coming out of the US Open over the last two weeks and I wanted to collect them all in one play for your enjoyment. Now, if you’ve been […]

Roland Garros Quarterfinals Preview – The Men

Rafael Nadal (1) vs. Robin Soderling (5) Robin Soderling remains the only person ever to have beaten Rafa at Roland Garros. He’s beaten the defending champion two years running en route to the final.

Day 1 Update: The Short Version

So Day 1 of the Australian Open went mostly as expected. It was a day of domination on Rod Laver. Maria Sharapova was first up, winning quite easily over Tamarine Tanasugarn and looking in good form.

Serbia Wins 2010 Davis Cup

I’m really happy for Serbia, I am. But at the same time, I’m absolutely devastated for France.

Andrea’s Top Five…of the 2010 US Open

Best Matches 5. Kim Clijsters d. Venus Williams – These two have some serious history at the US Open, but Kim’s got a pretty tight hold over Venus. In 2005, Kim won a three set quarterfinal against Venus before storming on to win her first major title. Last year, these two played what I consider […]

A Weekend of Tweets

I know a lot of people still don’t like to use twitter. I was very reluctant to join, but it’s become an excellent source of information about tennis players. I’ve got some followers now, but not nearly as many as read A Change of Ends. I think some of my observations from this weekend are […]

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. […]
