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:

US Open 2013: Fashion Hits and Misses

The US Open is generally considered the Grand Slam where players can truly let loose when it comes to fashion. The glittering New York skyline has inspired many patterns and sparkles, while New Yorkers have a reputation for being open-minded and creative. It's probably my favourite fashion slam, and despite style queen Maria Sharapova giving it a miss this year, there's still plenty of exciting outfits to lust and laugh over.

Venus Williams Shows Off Her Moves

AP

Got to love a girl not afraid to shake what she's got! Venus did exactly that during a break at her exhibition match at the Rogers Cup in Toronto. As for who she's dancing with? That colourful bloke is Spandy Andy, a rather interesting looking Canadian entertainer. Enjoy!

Highlights from the French Open 2013 Day 1 & 2

DAY 1

Lleyton Hewitt never fails to bring a good show, and that he did yesterday against Frenchman Gilles Simon.  Not only did it go to 5 sets, but Rusty came back from 5-0 in the 5th to bring it to 5-5, but it ended up being all too much for the former #1 and Gilles prevailed 7-5 in the 5th.  And the sweetest part?  Gilles gave his flowers to his mother, (it was Mothers' day in France), apologizing for the rollercoaster he put her through during this match.

Video: Movie Trailer of "Venus and Serena"

No matter what you think of the Williams sisters, their rise to the top of the tennis world is one of the most intriguing stories in sports.  Now, in a new documentary titled, "Venus and Serena" you will be relive their journey from unlikely prodigies living in Compton to future Tennis Hall of Fame Inductees.  The movie debuts on iTunes on April 4th, and in theaters on May 10th.  I can't wait to see it!  What about you?  Enjoy!

Venus and Serena Williams Cover The New York Times Magazine

Serena and Venus Williams are currently on the cover of The New York Times Magazine (OMG those bodies!!!) and there is an amazing interview inside that focuses on the sisterly pair.  This is my favorite part (about Venus):

Because she’s usually frowning and scowling on court, or squinting and chewing the inside of her mouth, or looking bummed in the changeover chair — or finally at the end sometimes grinning and laughing maniacally — it’s easy to find yourself unprepared for her sheer prettiness, as witnessed when she’s more or less at ease, 6-foot-1 in pale designer jeans, quietly flashing the smile that made her at one time the richest woman in sports (before Maria Sharapova came along).

Venus Williams is back to her winning ways

by JAMES HENRY

CINCINNATI – Venus Williams is winning. And it sure feels good. 

“I didn’t realize I was going to be that excited when I won,” she said after defeating current U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur to advance from the quarterfinals at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

“I’d like to think that this is only the beginning for me of more semifinals. Of course, I’m going to stay focused and try to make it to a final match, as well. 

“So, for me, I’d like to take it a lot further. I haven’t played a lot since 2010, so this is awesome for me already.”

Williams, who won the U.S. Open in 2000 and 2001, withdrew from the second round of last year’s event, announcing she had been diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, a disorder that causes fatigue and joint pain.

Now, the seven-time Grand Slam singles champion is back to her winning ways.
