BNP Paribas NYC Taste of Tennis was last night. The event pairs up top NYC Chefs with tennis players and together they "showcase their culinary skills."
Entries in Kim Clijsters (37)
NY Times Magazine has outdone itself. Currently on their website, they have an article about the power- game in women's tennis titled, "Women Who Hit Hard." With the article, they have also posted on their website a series of slow-motion videos of the top womens players hitting balls while glammed out. The end result? Amazing. See for yourself.
Kim Clijsters rallied today and defeated Maria Sharapova in Cincinnati 2-6, 7-6 (4),6-2 Both rain and injury were factors in the match. The rain started towards the end of the 2nd set when Clijsters seemed to get her mojo back, denying Sharapova three match points.
The end of the 2009 season was undoubtedly a long one. There were too many injuries, too much complaining about the length of the season, and most importantly there was too little of Rafael Nadal doing what he usually does.......win. But, it's a new year, and it seems that 2010 has the recipe for some exciting tennis.
Women's tennis is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Per tennishead.net, the Belgian press is reporting that Justine Henin is going to announce her return to professional tennis, and believe me, women's tennis needs her.
I've been waiting for a great US Open Men's Championship, and tonight we got one! It has been 10 years since the last 5 setter, but this one went the distance as twenty year old Juan Martin del Potro came back two sets to one and defeated Roger Federer 3-6, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-2 to win his first Grand Slam title. It was an amazing feat: Federer has won the last 5 US Open Men's Titles, and no one has ever beaten Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer in the same tournament.
