Wimbledon Recap: Day 3

Just as we were celebrating Victoria Azarenka's return to winning, she loses. Her three set loss to Bojana Jovanovski was a reminder of just how hard top players work day in and day out to get the wins expected of them. Spend a few months off due to an injury and the setbacks are enormous. Vika came off court "pissed off" (her own words) that she'd lost and somewhat impatient to get back to her best.
                        
"I have to be [hard on myself]," Azarenka said. "I have to be realistic. I cannot sit here and say it's all great, because there's no moving forward from there. I'm going to be hard on myself just because I want to be better. ... I want to go back to practice like tomorrow, maybe even today. That's it... Im ready to work."
          
It's a good thing - compare her determined attitude to that of Sloane Stephens complacency and it explains why one of them is a Grand Slam winner and the other is fading out.

Venus Williams and Tomas Berdych Get Naked

ESPN Mag's 2014 Body Issue is almost out and last night they released pictures of none other than Venus Williams and Tomas Berdych. The feature includes quotes from both stars... but I think we all are just interested in what these two look like without their kit on. And let me tell you, both of them look pretty damn fine. Check out the nude shots after the cut (NSFW). ESPN's Body Issue comes out July 11.

RG '14 Fashion Hits and Misses

I'm a little late on this but that turned out to be not such a bad thing. Originally, I had big plans to sing praises about Venus Williams's dress while tearing into her sister Serena's choice, but that wasn't to be. I won't review anyone already out of the tournament and lo and behold, both of them along with Li Na and Stan Wawrinka will be spared my fashion critiques due to their early losses. I'm sure that's a real silver lining for them. It allows me to review some new people, although we will start with the men who are so far largely unscathed.

Novak Djokovic's clothing sponsor Uniqlo are known for their basics and so far they've really lived up to that reputation in the tennis world. Everything here is pretty, er, basic, but it's an improvement on the black/red/white look we have seen too much of. I like the baby blue on Djokovic and paired with the crisp white it contrasts nicely against the clay. Djokovic loses points for a lack of originality, but it's a nice outfit all the same.

Cooling Down With Tomas Berdych

Image from Tomas's Facebook Page

We caught up with Tomas Berdych after his match with John Isner at the Sony Open. Enjoy!

What is the biggest misconception people have about you?
Well, I don’t know what it is right now.  I used to remember when I start my social media specially Twitter, they thought I was pretty boring.  I don’t do anything on the court.  Then when I tried to win my matches, I sometimes argue with umpire, as everybody else do, and then that was all they saw.  Nothing special with this guy.  But that’s my job, that’s what I need to do on court, to stay focused and try to play my best.  Off court, I can show more of my personality which is different.  Now they can see it [on Twitter].

What is the last gift you received?
Hard to say.  I want to think of something special.  Well, I will see my girlfriend for the first time in four weeks.  So, that’s going to be the best gift I can get.

What is the last gift you gave?
I have something for my girlfriend. (Laughs)

If I could visit your hometown, where should I visit?
It’s not my hometown but I would say go to Prague. You will like it.  It’s a beautiful city.  I also live in Monaco which is like a small town almost the size of this tournament.  That’s worth a visit as well.

How do you spend your time in Miami outside of the tennis?
It’s a beautiful city with nice weather.  But I’m here to keep winning and want to want to stick with that and try to do my best.

Why did you join the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL)? (He is on Team Singapore with Andre Agassi, Patrick Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, Serena Williams, Bruno Soares, Daniela Hantuchova, and Nick Krygios.)
The attraction of something new coming up, just to try, you know I like to try different stuff. I think this is a very ambitious project and to be part of that is great.  It’s going to be a lot of new experiences and lots of fun.  To be with a team like Andre and Pat Rafter is something different.  I am not saying it’s boring but these guys [ATP players] you see them every week. I’m not complaining about it.  We are in the best tennis era ever but it’s nice to see these other guys and chat with them.

Australian Open Day 1 Roundup

Venus Williams was in a knock-down, drag-out fight with the #22 seed Ekaterina Makarova (the woman who took out her sis Serena in the 4th round in 2012).  She battled fiercely, but in the end she made one too many errors and was knocked out the Australian Open in 3 sets.  Here is the *slightly* silver lining.......the consensus on her dress (via Twitter) was two thumbs WAY up and we will get to see more of it because she is still in the doubles draw with Serena.

On the flip side, Tomas Berdych started his AO campaign with a fairly easy 3 set win, but even with the win, all people could talk about was his H&M kit. I thought he would be wearing some of his signature gear from his collection but instead we got this:

H&M Launches Tomas Berdych Collection

Tomas Berdych has been rocking his H&M apparel all season, and here is a peak at his new collection!  The collection is reasonably priced with pieces from $5.95 up to $34.95 and you can never go wrong with the palette of black and gray.  The only thing I don't like is that the gray shirt has a big "B" on it, which can be weird if your name beings with a different letter, like R.

Berdych making his own music at the Western & Southern Open

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Tennis is physical, but it also is a mental game. And that’s not easy when you’re competing in a high-stakes Masters 1000 match and a Katy Perry song is playing on the stadium sound system.

“It’s very tough,” said Tomáš Berdych. “You’re there. You try to be really focused on every single point. You try to heard the ball bounce and to be really, really in that match – and then all of a sudden you start to listen to music and songs and talking and introducing and whatever.

“It’s really hard, you know what I mean. It’s tough for both of us, of course. But someone’s able to deal with it better. Someone’s not. Also depends on the day, which mood, however you feel.”
