In their latest installment, ATP World Tour Uncovered takes us into the life and game of John Isner. He talks about how difficult it is to play his good friend Sam Querrey, his love for tourneys on American soil, and how his coach Craig Boynton has taken his game to new levels. (And on a side note, his lisp is too cute!) Enjoy!
A little video of Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko and Vera Zvonareva arrving at the Pattaya Open. Maria and Ana look casually cute, but Vera looked like she was paying tribute to 80's fashion with her faded denim outfit + denim bag. All she needs are leg warmers and feathered bangs to complete the look. Enjoy!

I'm not sure what exactly happened here, but in the semi-finals of the Movistar Open, words were apparantly exchanged over the net between Fabio Fognini and Tommy Robredo. After Robredo defeated Fognini, he refused to shake his hand, and then Fognini called Robredo a "piece of shit." The crowd was clearly in Fognini's corner as they booed Robredo off the court. The best part.....they meet at the Brazil Open next week in the first round. Drama.
While playing doubles for her Fed Cup team, Caroline Wozniacki was accidentally hit in the face by a service return. Ouch! After icing her eye she returned to the court only to lose the match and ultimately the tie, which now forces Denmark into a relegation playoff to stay in World Group I. Double Ouch!
She later tweeted about it:
Got a pretty hard ball in my face today in the doubles, hopefully i will not have a black eye tomorrow!
Serena and Kim were concerned:
She let them know she was ok, and then she tweeted the video of the incident. Clearly she's a good sport.
Jelena Jankovic recently and unknowingly ended up on an advertisement for a Swiss Sperm bank. The caption reads "Make a donation here." (I hope I don't need to explain how the picture and the caption relate.)
Apparently the sperm bank didn't even know it was Jelena and have since taken the adverts down. No word on whether she gets free turkey basters for life.
