Mmmm, Women’s Tennis

September 2, 2009

With all the coverage of women’s tennis on television, I can’t help but watch it from time to time. Minus the tennis part, of course. To be honest, I watch it more for the ‘sights and sounds’ of the game. Yeah, you know what i’m talking about. And sometimes, I tune in just to hear the sounds. Yep, women’s tennis is awesome like that. Except when Venus Williams is playing.


Serena Williams to Serve Up Awesome Book

September 16, 2008

A memoir by one of tennis’ better players Serena Williams will be hitting bookstands in 2009. And judging by the way every celebrity athlete’s, musician’s and actor’s success story goes (or at least the ones interesting enough to get published), the premise of the Serena bio will sound a lot like the following… Serena Williams grew up in a large family in the ghettos of some ghetto city in America. While all the other school kids were doing drugs and making babies and listening to 2 Live Crew, Serena found solace in the game of tennis. But a black girl playing a white girl’s game didn’t come without its share of adversity. Serena battled through the mean inner-city streets and overcame some form of racism at the tennis club to become what she is today… Ten billion times more attractive than her sister Venus… If I’m way off, I will buy a copy and pretend to read it.

Roger Federer Wins 985,877th Tournament but Pretends it’s his First

September 8, 2008

The best tennis player in the world Roger Federer won yet another tennis tournament tonight – this time the U.S. Open for the fifth time in a row – by beating opponent Andy Murray in straight sets. After Andy put the ball in the net for the final play, Roger pumped his fists, dropped to his knees, rolled around the ground, lay flat on his back, and held his head in disbelief. Jesus!! For someone who’s won every tennis event in the last thousand years, you’d think he would at least pour champagne all over himself, do a Lambau leap in the stands and tear off his shirt like he was headlining Wrestlemania… but maybe he didn’t want to overdo it.
