Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

Wimbledon Underway!

That was fast (French Open nodding).

#5 seed and French Open Champion Rafael Nadal already lost in the first round today in straight sets. Coincidentally, the women’s #5 seed was also beaten in straight sets.

#2 Andy Murray and #3 Roger Federer, last year’s final two with Roger winning in that dramatic home court match for Murray (http://voices.yahoo.com/i-wept-andy-murray-11545592.html), each advanced in straight sets today, too.

Snarf picks:

Men’s – Andy Murray

Women’s – Serena Williams

UPDATE: Second round shocker: Federer & Maria Sharapova OUT

  • Good Luck, Murray Often, tennis is overlooked on this site, because, let’s face it: outside of Andy Murray & the Williams sisters, no one has any personality. Both Serena and Andy keep making recent finals and falling just short. I had a feeling this could be their tournament going in, and now with Federer and Jokester eliminated and [...]
  • The Collapse of Serena Truly a tragedy. Our American woman deserved the Grand Slam, holding them all in the same year, but instead she’ll settle for 3 of the 4 in a remarkable 2015 campaign. I mean WTF? Is it that weird religion she belongs to, suppressing her emotions ’til they blow on the big stage? She looked so uncharacteristically rattled against Venus, [...]
  • Thank You, Williams Sisters Venus pushed her talented younger sister to the emotional limit tonight in front of a big quarterfinal crowd. Thank you, girls, for giving us so many shows over the last couple decades. It’s honestly mind blowing that they’re still at it. Congratulations to Serena on her quest for the ultimate Grand Slam – I imagine [...]
  • Congratulations to Andy Murray on Incredible Australian Run The Jokester loves it down under, for some reason, it’s his fifth title there. If it wasn’t for Andy, though, no one would have been watching. Murray’s presence in the Open was the only reason I paid attention. He even reminded me how much I like watching Serena and the women. All the other men [...]
  • Serena Williams Is Australian Open Champion Williams took down Maria Sharapova (6-3), (7-6) to win the first major championship of the tennis season. It is her sixth Australian Open title. Serena dominated the opening set, breaking the poor tiny twig of a white girl three times. That serve. Sharapova did battle back in the second set, though, and neither woman could break [...]

    ………………….. good picks for the Finals Winners…. but don’t be surprised if a lower seed makes the finals in both the Women’s and Men’s……………early seeds falling might signal leftover fatigue from the French Open…..and open the door for some good old fashioned five set tennis and beyond!

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
