The BIG Split

It has been announced yesterday that former tennis player, Chris Evert has parted ways with Australian Golfer, Greg Norman after just 15 months of married life together.

chris-evert-greg-norman-062808A statement from both stated that they still want to be friends and support each other and their families.  The popular couple were most recently spotted at the US Open and also the British Open.

Nothing much to say here, although i didn’t really see that coming but oh well.  Life shall go on.

What are your thoughts on the split?  Will we see another tennis player and golfer split soon?

Masha Love; Dedicated to Hermi_Freak :)

As i watched the live stream of the Masha/Kleybs match i was talking to this one girl on the free chat on the side and i was telling her about my tennis blog.  I sent her the link and she said, “Why no Masha love?” So, i agreed if she served out the match *5-2 I would make an article entitled Masha Love dedicated to Hermi_freak! 🙂

mashalove9Masha played a solid match today after the first set where she regrouped to take the next two sets 6-2 6-2 🙂

mashalove7Her full service motion is back and it was there mostly all of the time. It came at crucial moments and did a number of aces.

kleybs

Kleybs did was owning Masha for the first set then the momentum switched cos the crowd wanted to see a third set 🙂

mashalove1Well done Maria, You deserved it!

mashalove2She will meet Iveta Benesova in the quarterfinals 🙂

No matches were played today as heavy rainfall drenched the courts.  I think this will teach the players a lesson as to stop saying they don’t need a frickening roof.

I got up at 4am to watch it to be pissed off and waited till 6 for 30minute updates.  I was ecstatic the night before as i was briefly looking at was on my free to air channels (don’ t have fox 😦 boo) to see the tennis.  They kept showing live cross backs to Flushing Meadows and Ashe looked like a swimming pool (literally)

us5So yer. It is screwed up and they kept on saying they may play the Gonzo/Rafa match until they decided it was never going to stop so here are todays drenched and blow dryed out photos. Lol.

The players practiced on indoor courts as the rain kept on coming.

Coolness in Cincy

Awesome things happened in Cincy as well as Montreal so here goes:

  • Kim made her return FINALLY!
  • Ana Rere and Vee got out woo!
  • And other awesome stuff too!

Dinara Safina Defeated Kim Clijsters 6-2   7-5

 

YAY fro dina and NOOOOOOOOOOOO for Kim.  I have so enjoyed watching her and her comeback it has been awesome! 

kim1

 So it was an All Safina first set until Kim re grouped and made a small comeback.  Dina’s shit serve got the best of her and Kim raced to a 4-2 lead!  But Dina broke back.  I think it was because of Dina’s pace of the ball and strength and placement of shots that got Kim today.

dinara2

Will be an interesting match next time they meet when Kim will have re grouped and know her weaknesses and target them!
