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 […]

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, […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Murray took down Tomas Berdych in four sets to win the semi-final match. There was some bad blood in the air already, for Andy’s old coach is now with Berdych. The first set was a battle that ended in a tiebreaker. Berdych ultimately won, then talked some shit to my boy as they crossed at […]
While Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer both made early Australian Open exits, Andy Murray is playing some of his best tennis. Murray just made it into the Semis after beating his Quarterfinal opponent in straight sets. Our boy probably needed a year to come down after the incredible high of winning Wimbledon. I think this is a […]
Andy Murray beat Gaël Monfils in the French Open Quarterfinals to advance to the semis.
Murray will play Gaël Monfils
My gift to you:
The Men’s matches begin Thursday at 11:00 AM then 7:00 PM. #1 Jokester plays Russia’s best #21 MikHail Youzhny, a 31-year old. #3 Murray plays #9 Stanislas Wawrinka, Roger Federer’s Swiss double’s partner. #4 Spain’s David Ferrer and #8 Frenchmen Richard Gasquet will square off, too. #2 Rafael Nadal has won his last two tournaments, […]
Andy Murray doesn’t make it easy every time. That’s just not his style. Back in front of his hometown crowd, Murray dropped the first two sets today 4-6, 3-6 before rallying to win the final three 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Our boy still has that brace on his ankle, so if that is causing him some pain this […]

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 […]
