Video: Squirrel Takes Center Stage at the US Open

All the excitement of the tennis at the US Open is driving fans nuts!  So much so that a squirrell ended up taking center stage during a match between Sabine Lisicki and Vera Dushevina.  (Get it? Squirell..nuts?)

Bad joke aside, no one can deny the fancy footwork on that little guy.  He must have given Sabine some tips as she took the match 6-2. 7-6 (3). 

Enjoy!

IMG Players' Party At Crown 

On the eve of the Australian Open, IMG hosted their annual bash for players and local celebrities alike. While strict schedules meant most players were unable to stop for a chat, all of them dressed up to the nines for the event and posed for photos on the red carpet. French restaurant, Breezes, was transformed into a Chinese-themed party with drinks flowing and a gourmet barbeque on offer. 

Ryan Harrison was the first to arrive and although I would have preferred it if he had tucked in his shirt, he still looked pretty damn handsome.

Sabine Lisicki featured in the Nike Campaign "Play"

Sabine Lisicki is featured in a new Nike Campaign in Vogue UK called "Play."   The campaign is to show the world the "softer side" of Nike and is styled by Leith Clark.  I absolutely love the contrast of the goth lipstick with Sabine's pale skin and nude dress.

Quick Q & A With Sabine Lisicki

Sabine Lisicki sat down with me after her 2nd round win at the Sony Ericsson Open.  When she realized that she was going to be videotaped she stopped being as giggly as she was in a previous interview, but after a few questions she began to open up and flash that brilliant smile.

Players always have a tendency to tell me that their most embarrassing moment is on YouTube.  This time, I chose not to post it, but I'm sure you can find it if you are so inclined.   She is such a nice person! 

Make sure you turn up the volume!  Enjoy!

Australian Open Day 4: Dark Horses and Bronzed Bodies

Fans brave the sweltering sun during the Australian Openby Kait O'Callahan

We’re here to see Stephanie Dubois lose. It isn’t nice, but we’re still bitter about Vesnina. Angelique Kerber stands strong, her thighs rippling, her blonde hair twisted into a tight bun. It doesn’t take a world traveller to guess her nationality. Her team yell encouragement at her in harsh German and she responds just as loudly. Dubois plays more aggressively than in her first round, but the match is still on Kerber’s racket. She takes it in straights, not without a struggle. She screams, pumps her fist, and finally allows herself a smile.

I expect some pretty poor tennis when we head over to Marcel Granollers and Frederico Gil - they’re not exactly household names. But Gil surprises me. He hits a strong backhand and moves well. There’s a big crowd, which is credit to how busy the Open is today. Our seats are quickly taken when we move on.

The difference between Asian and Australian culture is as exposed by the Westerners’ bronzed bodies when we take to Court 8. The fans of Japanese player Tatsuma Ito cover their arms, legs, and faces as they shield themselves from the harsh sun. The rest of us slather on sunscreen and hope it won’t halt our tan. I know whose idea of beauty is safer. Ito is fighting hard, but cult favourite Nicolas Mahut is starting to pull ahead. He will eventually seal a place in the next round against Novak Djokovic.

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.
