Fashion finds at the French Open

By | May 27, 2014 6:26 am | 0 Comments

It’s French Open tennis time, and in addition to seeing great tennis — it’s the place to see what’s in style for the summer workout season. Venus Williams looked cute in her own artsy tennis dress design, but so far I’m more a fan of Belinda Bencic’s color combo. She and other tennis stars are rocking the orange and…

U.S. Open Tennis shockers

Spain’s Tommy Robredo’s three-set upset of  Roger Federer, owner of five U.S. Open titles, was hard to watch. The scores were 7-6, 6-3, 6-4. This closes out a year in which Federer has not made it into a single final of a major tournament for the first time since 2002. Rafael Nadal got a scare…

U.S. Open tennis fashionable and fabulous

I love the U.S. Open tennis tournament. First the fashions. It appears purple and pink are the colors that are popping up everywhere on the tennis dresses, but not so much on the shoes — on the women’s side. The men have some purple and pink going on in the shoe department though. The tennis…

Women over 30, 40 make mark at Wimbledon

By | July 1, 2013 5:02 am | 0 Comments

When 42 year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm hit the court at Wimbledon, by most media accounts, she didn’t give 31-year-old Serena Williams much of a match, but she made her mark. Date-Krumm raced around the court like a youngster, won the hearts of people watching and stole Serena’s serve from her once. Date-Krumm lost 6-2, 6-0, but…

American women winning at Wimbledon

American men may be gone from Wimbledon (sadly earlier than in 101 years), but the American women are doing just fine, thank-you. Here’s who’s left: Serena Williams — I don’t think anyone can beat her, and kudos to her. At 31, she’s playing better than ever. And speaking of age, Serena’s next opponent is Kimiko…

Au-some tennis at Aussie Open — Djokovic, Sharapova et al

By | January 20, 2013 6:34 am | 0 Comments

It’s early morning tennis time! You don’t have to be a tennis fan to appreciate the talents of Maria Sharapova, Novak Djokovic and more at the 2013 Australian Open. I won’t spoil anything for anyone, but some great matches take place overnight. Serbian Djokovic is playing this morning in a real nail-biter. Last year, he played in the…

Getting kicks at the U.S. Open is a colorful pastime this year. Retiring Andy Roddick wore shoes that appeared to be wrapped in the American flag and the Babolat Propulse 3 Stars & Stripes are flying off the shelves. He wore them for the Olympics. See a couple styles from $109 to $124 right here….

U.S. Open who’s in and who’s out 09-04-12

By | September 4, 2012 1:37 pm | 0 Comments

The Williams sisters, pretty much unbeatable in major doubles’ competitions,  met their match Sunday at the hands of Russian players Maria Kirilenko and  Nadia Petrova. Venus suffers from  Sjögren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disease, and it clearly affects her play at times. I feel awful for her — she tries so hard. Victoria Azarenka takes on Samantha Stosur, and the…

U.S. Open Tennis — who wins, who retires

By | September 2, 2012 1:45 pm | 0 Comments

It’s an odd year when nearly 31-year-old Serena Williams starts interviews with “I’m not retiring.” But who can blame her when 29-year-old Kim Clijsters announced last week that she would retire from singles after the U.S. Open. Not 24 hours later, 30-year-old Andy Roddick added that it was his swan song as well. He plays…
