Maria Sharapova won the Best Female Tennis Player award at the ESPYs yesterday, but that wasn't the highlight for Maria fans. When she joined boxer Floyd Mayweather to present the award for Best Game both took the opportunity to make fun of their height difference leading to this totally adorable GIF.
Maria was introduced by Drake who said, "And from tennis, or whatever, Maria Sharapova." Maria gave some sass back to ther rapper, saying "Wow. Where was my introduction?" Drake hasn't had a good run with tennis lately...
Wimbledon has been reasonably upset-free so far, (unlike last year), but I was hoping Aussie teen Nick Kyrgios would be able to pull off the upset over Richard Gasquet. Wimbledon is on pretty late in Australia so after Nick dropped the first two sets 3-6 6-7 I went to bed. Nick was playing Ok, his serve perhaps wasn't clicking as much as usual, but Gasquet just looked too solid. So imagine my surprise when I woke up, (at 2am, to watch soccer) and saw Nick pulled off the upset 10-8 in the fifth. It's a really exciting time for Aussie tennis fans who don't want to support Bernard Tomic. Nick is confident and has swagger, but he's humble and hard-working too. He takes on wildcard Jiri Vesely in the third round, who took out Gael Monfils in five sets.

Victoria Azarenka's back and winning! After her straight sets win she talked about how happy she is to be back playing and pain free. "I was just really happy to play. It's a beautiful court. It's a beautiful tournament." We are happy to have you back too, Vika... and love the return of the shorts!
