Australian Open Day 2: Broken Hearts and Tattered Flags

by Kait O'Callahan

Before I set off on my recap of day two, I’d like to share my ‘goal’ for the Open. My brother and I saw 46 live matches at the AO 2011. This year we plan to hit 50. We do not have to see matches in their entirety; nine games or one set is enough. Of course, if a match is good, we will see it out. This goal motivates us to see matches we would normally avoid, and spend less time watching TV. It is also a lot of fun. We started day two off on Show Court 3.

Sabine Lisicki’s abdominal strain is still an issue. Not only could she not buy a first serve in her opening match today, but her little known opponent, Stephanie Voegele, pushes her through three tight sets. Lisicki’s powerful game is streaky but far more dangerous than her opponent’s. She survives to reach the third round, but only just.

Like many other females, I have a soft spot for Ernests Gulbis.  The Latvian man with striking cheekbones and quick wit has captured the hearts of many worldwide, and then proceeded to break them all. It’s business as usual for Gulbis against Michael Llodra. Gulbis is battling the wind, the crowd, his game, and his opponent. Things get tense when Llodra complains repetitively about the time Gulbis is taking - Gulbis allows himself to get distracted, and never recovers. I busy myself in studying the watch on the woman in front of me - it’s a Rolex. An accreditation pass hangs around her neck, and I peer further to try and catch which career change might afford me a Rolex. Turns out she’s a tennis player’s mother. My eyes catch the sneakers of the girl sitting next to me.  It’s Shahar Peer, and she’s talking enthusiastically with her mother about something to do with Wozniacki, Jankovic, and Schiavone. Whatever the language is, at the moment I wish to understand it.

Twitpic of the Week Runner Up: Dmitry Tursunov 

I have so many questions when looking at this picture:

1.  Why does Dima have on pink (denim?) shorts?

2.  Why is Dima shirtless when he clearly isn't on the tennis court?

3.  What IS that little furry thing he has in a death grip?

But really, the best thing about this photo was the caption:

Can we all say a collective, "Awwwwwwwww!"

I wonder what Dima did this time.  (Click to picture to see his expression.)

My Boys

Let me preface this by saying that I don't claim to know Grigor Dimitrov and Dmitry Tursunov so they really aren't "my boys" as in my personal buddies (but I would be ok with that), but they have definitely become "my boys" when it comes to who I root for when I watch tennis.

Because tennis is an individual sport, there is usually something about a player that connects with you on a personal level, in addition to how they play the game, that makes you a fan.  For example, my sister says that she loves Jo-Wilfried Tsonga because he is "joyous" when he plays tennis.  (She also thinks he's hot).

US Open Day 1 & 2: Highlights and Lowlights

You Talkin' To Me?Day 1 Catch Up:

Grigor Dimitrov's kiss seen 'Round The World' or maybe just in Louis Armstrong Stadium.  I'll admit, I'm a little jealous of Monfils.

Venus Williams wore a mullet.  Seriously.

Day 2 Highlights and Lowlights:

Highlight:  There were lots of besties out supporting each other today including:  Xavier Malisse watching Steve Darcis win a 5 set battle against Dimitry Tusunov, Alexandr Dolgopolov watching friend and countryman Sergei Bubka who also happens to be the boyfriend of Victoria Azarenka, and Pico's team watching countryman Maximo Gonzalez take on Stanislas Wawrinka.  Maximo had the Argentinians fired up after he took the first set, but eventually Stan prevailed in four 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3.
