I was watching Venus and Serena Williams defeat the Russians Kleybanova and Makarova in the doubles quarter-finals at the US Open, and was intrigued by the large heart necklace that Serena was wearing. There have been many displays of flashy jewelry during the Open. View some of them here.........
Melanie Oudin. The newest star on the circuit with the colorful sneakers and All-American spunk. She might have lost today to Caroline Wozniacki, but, by this virtual unknown reaching the quarter-finals at the US Open, she single handedly re-invigorated women's tennis, which lately has been lackluster at best. Thank you for the ride Melanie, and here's to many more. We Believe!!
In a surprise upset, Andy Murray, number 2 seed and one of the favorites to win the US Open this year, was ousted in 3 sets by 16th-seeded Croat Marin Cilic 7-5, 6-2, 6-2. Number 3 seed Rafael Nadal won his match over Frenchman Gael Monfils in 4 sets. With Murray's early departure, Rafa will regain his position as number 2 in the world! Go Rafa!!
Maybe it's just because I am a tennis maniac, but this commercial gets me every time. It truly captures everything there is to love about tennis. Call me a sucker, call me a sap, but I love it! Does anyone else feel the same?
Who couldn't love this guy! After defeating Radek Stepanek in straight sets, Novak Djokovic entertains the crowd with his impersonations and with a quick match up with the one-and-only Johnny Mac. He definitely knows how to play up the crowd! See him at his best. Enjoy!
