Entries in Serena Williams (119)
Wimbledon has been reasonably upset-free so far, (unlike last year), but I was hoping Aussie teen Nick Kyrgios would be able to pull off the upset over Richard Gasquet. Wimbledon is on pretty late in Australia so after Nick dropped the first two sets 3-6 6-7 I went to bed. Nick was playing Ok, his serve perhaps wasn't clicking as much as usual, but Gasquet just looked too solid. So imagine my surprise when I woke up, (at 2am, to watch soccer) and saw Nick pulled off the upset 10-8 in the fifth. It's a really exciting time for Aussie tennis fans who don't want to support Bernard Tomic. Nick is confident and has swagger, but he's humble and hard-working too. He takes on wildcard Jiri Vesely in the third round, who took out Gael Monfils in five sets.
Serena Williams doesn't seem so fussed she lost second round of the French Open... she's hit the beach in Miami instead. And just to make sure we haven't forgotten about her while we are all watching Paris, she's made her selfies as sexy as possible. Check out her amazing leopard print swimsuit and her ...interesting gym photo after the jump, (NSFW).
Serena Williams suffered her worst ever defeat at Grand Slam level in terms of games won and it was the earliest exit for a defending champion since 2005. Her vanquisher was Garbine Muguruza, who is having a great year after winning her first ever WTA title in Hobart and reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open. Serena admitted nothing was working for her on-court, but gave full credit to her opponent. She even joked that her outfit was to blame. “I am never going to wear green in Paris again.” This comment confused me a bit... surely that dress is yellow??!!
Caroline Wozniacki finally broke her silence, (and updated her profile picture) when she tweeted about her break-up with Rory McIlroy.
It's a hard time for me right now.Thanks for all the sweet messages!Happy I support Liverpool right now because I know I'll never walk alone— Caroline Wozniacki (@CaroWozniacki) May 22, 2014
Serena Williams responded with her own tweet, letting her know she has Caro's back. It's nice to see such friendship on the WTA, I've always thought reports of bitchiness were exaggerated.
A big congrats is in order to Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic for their Miami titles. This is the last big hard court tournament for a while as we move onto clay. Djokovic will hope his win over Rafael Nadal is a sign of things to come.
I've always liked the photos the Sony Open takes of their champions. I fondly remember Andy Murray running with seagulls along the beach a few years back. Serena looks gorgeous, but Novak really took his photoshoot to the next level. Nice undies, Nole! Enjoy.
