Fashion Update – Nike for the US Open

I guess I’m a little late to the party, but I previewed the Adidas outfits so I think it’s only fair that I take a crack at the Nike team. On the whole, I have to give the edge to Nike. None  of their players look like clowns that might give small children nightmares and […]

Roland Garros Quarterfinal Preview – The Women

Sventlana Kuznetsova (13) vs. Marion Bartoli (11) Svetlana Kuznetsova won this title in 2009 and yet somehow everyone seemed to have written her out of the equation this year. She’s only 25 and still has the skills it takes to win a Slam. The women’s field is wide open so it seems almost ridiculous to […]

Indian Wells Photos

As today comes to a close, so does the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Novak Djokovic and Caroline Wozniacki hoisted the trophies and will continue on to Miami to try for the Indian Wells/Key Biscayne double. This was the first year I made the trek out to Indian Wells, and I couldn’t be happier […]

I Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Have a Camera

Because I make Maria Sharapova look like this, and that’s just wrong.

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 […]

Everything Was Going According to Plan…

As open as the WTA draw seems to be, the ATP draw appeared to be equally as closed. Federer and Nadal have had a near stranglehold on Grand Slam titles for 6 or 7 years now and we’re pretty used to seeing Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray hanging around well into the second week. As […]

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. While she had an easy time of it yesterday, I still have my doubts about her abilities against better […]

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 […]

Too Adorable

I’m a sucker for a cute dog. Turns out tennis players love their dogs just as much as everyone else and lots of players even tweet photos of their pups. Andy Murray has taken things to a whole new level, creating a whole new twitter account just for his dog Maggie. It kills me to […]

Maria Sharapova: Four Times a Champion?

Two weeks ago, I wrote an article for TennisGrandstand about which current players I believe will win more Grand Slams. Maria Sharapova is a three time Grand Slam winner, having won Wimbledon in 2004, the US Open in 2006, and the Australian Open in 2008. Plus, she’s only 23. She’s for sure going to win […]
