The Roundup – This Week in Tennis

I am officially the worst tennis blogger ever. It’s been close to a month since I last posted anything and far longer since I’ve been consistently updating. For those of you who don’t know, I spent a few weeks in Europe, moved to New York City, and just started a new job. Life has been […]

Wimbledon Reflections: Day 4

After what could only be considered an unfortunate day, I knew I could count on Wimbledon to cheer me up, or at least provide me with some entertainment. I used my lunch hour to sit out in the pouring rain at Rockefeller Plaza in NYC, where HSBC has set up a Wimbledon village of sorts. […]

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.

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 […]

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?

WTF Day 5

It’s nearly 3am and I’m pretty exhausted so I’m planning on keeping tonight’s entry short.
