Singer Brandy Plays A Little Tennis With Jelena Jankovic

Photo:  Sony Ericsson Open

Grammy-award singer Brandy Norwood showed her tennis moves against Jelena Jankovic the No. 7th ranked women's tennis player in the world. Brandy was able to hang in there with Jankovic and displayed a pretty impressive backhand for an amateur. Jankovic's mom said Brandy's tennis was a million times better than Jelena's singing - so that's a good thing.  After their set, Brandy and Jelena posed for pictures and signed autographs for fans. Prior to the evening session, Brandy made another appearance, this time on stadium court, performing the coin toss before Novak Djokovic's victory match over Denis Istomin. Brandy will return to the Sony Ericsson Open on Saturday, March 26 to perform the National Anthem prior to Rafael Nadal's match.

Photos: Winning vs. Losing

Above is what it looks like to be undefeated in 2011.  Compare to below, which is what is looks like to lose 9 straight sets in a row.  Andy needs some of that Nole swagger to rub off on him.  Stat.

Sony Ericsson Open Bucket List: 1 Down 4 To Go

Color me exhausted.  I worked from 5pm to 4am, hopped on my flight at 6 am and have been up since.  I got to the grounds of the Sony Ericsson Open a little after noon, and since getting here have pretty much stayed around the Stadium Court and the media center, (although Grandstand was probably the place to be). This is partly because there were good matches here too, but mostly because I was tired and overwhelmed.

ATP World Tour Allstars Take on Fort Lauderdale Strikers To Raise Money For Japan

THIS is why I love this sport. 

Recently there have been a number of devastating events that have happened around the world, from the earthquake in Haiti last year, to the floods in Queensland in early January; and every time something like this happens, tennis players from all over the world take notice and then collectively organize events to try and bring support to the affected areas.  Yesterday was no different when many of the top players from the ATP played a charity soccer match against the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to raise money for Japan which has been devastated by an earthquake, tsunamis, and now is dealing with a nuclear crisis.  The Allstars lost 5-2, but it was a lot of fun to watch, and should also remind us that we can all make a difference, no matter how small, to help those in need. 

Here are some photos from the soccer/football match:

Kei Nishikori, Felicano Lopez and Novak Djokovic standing for the Japanese National Anthem.

Andy Murray scored one of the 2 goals for the ATP Allstars.

Whoops!

Marcos Baghdatis scored the other goal on a penalty kick.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga looks a bit pained.

The Spanish Press called Feliciano Lopez the "Messi" of the team.  I was impressed.

Hot and sweaty post-match.

On Friday, March 25, the WTA, ATP World Tour, Sony Ericsson Open and global tennis family will join forces to help raise money for Japan disaster relief. Prior to the start of Friday’s evening session, players from both the WTA and ATP World Tour will participate in an on-court presentation and walk through the stands on Stadium Court collecting donations. Money collected will go to the Red Cross.
