Tough. Luck.

Sammy Querrey is out till the end of the season.  He was sitting on a glass table after his practice sesh in his hotel room and fell through while putting his shoes on.   He cut his right forearm and had to be rushed to hospital and have emergency surgery.

But seriously, wtf do you expect when you sit on glass.  That is too bad for the US OPEN SERIES Champ as he has had a really good year having won two titles.

Waiting…..

US2

It started raining/drizzling after the Rafa/Gonzo match.  But apparently, they are drying off the courts now but it is still a very light drizzle so hopefully the women’s first semi final will be able to get underway.

Venus goes organic with her 100% organic Cotton shirt!

100%organiccotton

 

I want one, Who wants one?

Q & A With Vee:

USOpen.org: What was your inspiration for the design of the shirt? How did you come up with it?

Venus Williams: The inspiration was just trying to find the connection between tennis and green. So the inspiration behind the shirt was kind of a tennis fruit tree. That kind of met the two connections and the messaging behind it — if you love the planet and you love people, you will do your best to conserve. That is where it all ties in.

USOpen.org: With your design and tennis talent, it seems you were a natural fit for this project. What was your reaction to hearing about it?

Venus Williams: I love a design challenge. There was not a lot of time, and I was actually heading to a tournament, so it took me about a week to really get my ideas together between the matches. I was in Stanford, Calif., part of the Olympus US Open Series, and just before I flew out there I got the call, ‘Let’s do a t-shirt.’ It was exciting, and I was very relieved when all of the designs got done.

USOpen.org: How did you feel when you saw the finished shirt?

Venus Williams: Of course, I was happy to see it in completion. It was kind of hard to decide quickly on designs and colors. I like to sit on things, but that is not always possible.

USOpen.org: Why is it so important to be promoting the Green Initiatives at the US Open?

Venus Williams: This is a huge tournament. It is the biggest sporting event in the United States. What better opportunity to let people know and let people be more aware that the top athletes are concerned about the environment and they should be, too!

A Play Date To Remember

Sorry for it being so small :)

Sorry for it being so small 🙂

Jesse Levine, Robert Kendrick, Ryan Sweeting and Ross Hutchins got a tour of the famous playboy mansion near Holmby Hills in LA.  Their tour guide was May 2006  cover girl Alison Waite.  So what did they do?

  • visiting gardens
  • visiting the tennis courts (like they haven’t seen enough)
  • took photos with birds in the zoo
  • played pinball in the games room
