Gorgeous Goerges Wins In Stuttgart

Yesterday Julia Goerges upset World Number 1 Caroline Wozniacki to win the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix 7-6 (3) 6-3 in Stuttgart, Germany. With this win her ranking will climb to a career high of 27, joining fellow German Andrea Petkovic in the top 30.

And of course, you can't win a tournament with the word Porsche in it without getting a dope car.  

The video below shows highlights from the final, with the best point of the match starting around the 1:50 mark.  You should also check out Julia's father in the video, who wins the award for the most animated "tennis dad" (in a good way)  I've ever seen.  They could have left the camera on him the whole time and I would have been thoroughly entertained.  Enjoy!

Photos: Rafa Balancing The Beast

It seems like with every title, Rafael Nadal is rewriting the history books.   Today he defeated David Ferrer, 6-2, 6-4 to claim the Barcelona crown, and with this win he is the first player in the Open Era to win 2 tournaments at least 6 times. (He won his 7th straight Monte Carlo title last week).  Maybe we should just start calling him King Rafa and be done with it.

Donald Young's Twitter Oops

Updated on Monday, April 25, 2011 at 10:29AM by Registered Commenter[OnTheGoTennis]

I don't know why he tweeted this so I won't speculate, but, I will say that unless you want the whole Twitterverse to weigh in on your personal woes, then you should probably step away from the keyboard, because it will, and it did:

I really thought that he was joking when @footfault tweeted this:

Clearly he was not.  But no worries, she was fine, she just needed a little cheering up from her team after she lost the match:

See!  Good as new.

One String Short Of A Racket

During her match against Sam Stosur, Vera Zvonareva went through not one, not two, not even three, but NINE rackets due to broken strings.  At one point she had to play with her coach's Babolat racket because she ran out.  I don't know where the fault lies:  Prince, Gamma, Bepa, but she needs to figure it out, stat.

One Bepa fan in a tennis forum gave an interesting perspective, maybe she's punished so many rackets in her career, that they've decided to punish her back.......

I'll go with it.

Sam won the match 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 and below in her post-match presser at around the 50 second mark, she talks about the racket breakage.

Sam will play Julia Goerges in the semifinals on Saturday.

What Your Car Says About You, WTA Style

Andrea Petkovic:  I'm smart, sporty, and fun. 

Caroline Wozniacki:  I am elegant and like to have dinner with princes and fly in private jets (as C. Note would put it a #humblebrag)

 

Serena Williams:  I'm glamourous, glittery, and STURDY, get out of my way.

Francesca Schiavone:  I don't care, leave me alone I'm playing.  Vrrrrooooommmm.... Honk Honk!

(of course none of these women said these things, except in my head)
