Whoever said tennis was a great family bonding experience never shared a room with my husband and daughter. Trust me. It’s not.

It’s not just a story about the favorites @AustralianOpen, there will surely be a couple Cinderellas too http://www.tennisspin.net/2013/01/australian-open-preview-cinderella.html …

Here is an excerpt from this article:

January 12, 2013

Australian Open Preview: Cinderella Stories

A couple players come to Melbourne at career highs, others at recent lows. Some of the favorites may be vulnerable, and a couple just out of seeding territory might just be ready to pounce. And while upsets could happen anywhere, being classified as a real Cinderella will need a combination of luck, timing and talent. So this year I’ll be scanning the draws for some potential spoilers and pick a pair of players who, if everything goes their way, might just find themselves fighting for a semifinal spot.

THE TSONGA WIT – Twitter picture from Tsonga who recently ran into a fire hydrant while jogging and had to get stitches..



As reported in Tennis World, after taking home an Olympic bronze in tennis, Juan Martín del Potro recently visited Mayo Clinic surgeon Dr. Richard Berger and posted a picture with an update for fans on his Facebook page. He thanked Dr. Berger for seeing him on a Sunday and ruling out injury to ligaments and tendons, before prescribing treatment and rest for a few days.


The Argentine tennis star said Dr. Berger believes he will be able to play at the U.S. Open and that he will see Dr. Berger again after the tournament.



Agnieszka Radwanska went on a shopping trip to Outlet City Metzingen before the tournament.

It’s a Wig


Maria Sharapova with short hair? Sharapova posted pictures on her Twitter account of her with short hair.  The reesults? 8,000 comments and 32,000 Likes.  On the “Busted Racquet ” Blog (Yahoo Sports), Chris Chase explained “Maria Sharapova fooled us all. Two days after posting pictures of a new, short haircut on Facebook, the tennis star revealed that they were a fake. She revealed Wednesday that she was wearing a wig in the two photos that caused an international uproar.”

For the record, Sharapova turned 25 on Friday.

It’s been a while since we did a top tennis tweets of the week.  Some of these come from SI’s Cortney Nguyen and her “Beyond the Baseline ” blog.  (CLICK HERE FOR HER WEEKLY TWEET POSTING).  I recommend her blog.  It is great reading.

This is what Sharapova said to Alisa Kleybanova former top 20 player who was diagnosted with Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer in July.  Kleybnova posted on her WTA website page in February “treatments were successful, my doctors are happy with my health and I’m feeling great!”

Rafa’s got a brand new bag

Rafael Nadal debuted a new tennis bag (on account of forgetting his regular one). It has wheels … and its own Twitter account.

Nadal’s trolley bag kills me. Looks like he’s navigating ohare, heading to Cedar Rapids for the big trade show.

Need a new alarm song. Mine is currently Hold On by Wilson Phillips. Who’d have thought you could get sick of Wilson Phillips?

On the subject of famous people… Blue Ivy is a good name for a child?Is it even a pretty plant?Despite the fact that’s its a parasite?

Irene and tennis – Story 2


Hurricane Irene – Ultimate Party Crasher

Written by: Staff on 27th August 2011
From “10sBalls.com”

Pictured: Sabine Lisicki

Well, she has already caused the cancellation of Arthur Ashe Kids Day which is seen as the Official kick-off to the US Open by kids and Adults. It’s a chance for the players to let loose a little bit before it’s all business. Not only were fans robbed but so were the players. And not just of participating in this event but because of “Miss Irene” the players can’t practice on the courts they will be playing on to get a feel for it.

Some players are stocking up to ride out the Hurricane while others are still wondering how they will even get to NY. Sabine Lisicki is having a great week by getting to a Final but her worry is how she will get to NY. Aravane Rezai, Lisicki’s opponent in the Final today in Dallas, is also in the main draw of the US Open. Rezai doesn’t have an active Twitter but I wouldn’t doubt that she is as concerned as Lisicki.

Below is a rundown of the tweets from players around Twitter about this pesky party crasher.

@TipsarevicJanko: Early practice before…well…that Irene chick hits us…

@Feliciano_Lopez: Mi amiga IRENE esta a punto de llegar..x si acaso entreno 8.30am..que sueño tengo..nunca habia visto NY tan vacio.

(My friend Irene is about to get here… I might practice at 8:30… I’m soo sleepy… I’ve never seen NY so empty.)

@picomonaco: Flushing m . Sorry ! Esperando a irene.. Abriganos jesus !

(Waiting on Irene… Jesus protect us)

@MisaKrajicek: Seeing the seriousness of #HurricaneIrene coming towards NYC, there will be no practise for me today or tomorrow #usopen

@MardyFish: Bring it Irene! http://img.ly/7LGm

@JuanIChela: Hoy cuando pase Irene voy a sacar la cabeza por la ventana asi me queda el peinado del pibe Valderrama

(When Irene passes by today I will stick me head out the window, so that i can have hair like Valderrama)

@JuanIChela: Por favor a la gente encargada de ponerle nombre a los huracanes al proximo ponganle Isabeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel

(Please, whoever names the hurricanes please name the next one Isabel)

@JuanIChela: Me voy a atar en el poste de la red como en la pelicula twister a ver que onda

(I’m going to tie myself to the phone post, just like in the movie twister, i wonder how it feels)

@JuanIChela: Podemos aprovechar y grabar la 2da parte de Irene y yo y mi otro yo

(We should take the opportunity to film the second part of the movie – “Irene y yo y mi otro yo”

)@EVesnina001: Early hit this morning,rain at the end of practice,so dark outside,will try to leave in few minutes back to my room,which is on 30floor!Oops

@gidulko: Tenis de 7.45am a 9.15…gimnacio y ahora al hotel, se puso muy feo el cielo en n.y ! A quedarse adentro y mirar a Irene por la ventana

(Played tennis from 7:45 to 9:1… went to the gym now back to the hotel, the sky turned really ugly here in NY! Time to stay inside and to watch Irene pass by through the hotel window)

@SvetlanaK27: Im not sure how big the huracain will be!but i m sure that shops sold tons of food!

@nastia_pav: Machine with me either!shame all the shops are closed!(Joke)what can I do instead?!any alternatives?:P

@ivokarlovic: Gym at #usopen looks like refuge camp. I had to step over 4 Argentines, 3 Franchies and couple of unidentified players to get to dumbbells

@andreapetkovic: This is my home for the next days. Never mind the half naked women above, I’ll change it to something more appropriate. http://yfrog.com/kghy5ruj

@andreapetkovic: …. like half naked men for example.

@M_Granollers: cierran el club hoy a las 5 hasta el lunes,yo ya estoy en el hotel,por si acaso el huracan se adelanta..

(They are closing the club until 5 on Monday, i;m at the hotel already just incase the storm creeps up faster than expected)

@LDavenport76: Hoping everyone on the east coast and my friends/colleagues in NYC will be ok through Irene.

@MirzaSania: Driving around Manhattan..looking for food for the next 2 days..Irene is not even here and its already being a pain in the neck!

@shaharpeer: Got up at 6am to practice! had a practice from 7:45-10:00 and guess what happened at 10:02?? RAIN!!! im sssooo lucky :-)
