Fashion finds at the French Open

   May 27, 2014 6:26 am    0

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…

Tales from the couch

   January 9, 2014 4:59 am    0

Whenever anyone is sick and confined to a couch, there’s the possibility of delirium. Well here I am. Armed with newspapers, magazines, the Internet and TV, I’ve learned some really important info and some totally ridiculous hooey. Good news: Janet Yellen, 67, became the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve — taking over the helm…

Fashion Friday — exercise wear that rocks

After watching many hours of the U.S. Open tennis tournament, it’s clear that gray and pink and red and blue combos are in — for men and women in sports outfits. First the good stuff: Sloane Stephens in UnderArmour looked great. There she is at left. I liked her outfit The USA Today article on the…

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…

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

   January 20, 2013 6:34 am    0

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…

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

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

   September 2, 2012 1:45 pm    0

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…

Yesterday was Williams day at Wimbledon. Serena Williams won the ladies singles title — her fifth Wimbledon. She defeated Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2. Hours later, she teamed with her sister Venus — who also has five Wimbledon singles titles — to win their fifth Wimbledon ladies doubles title against Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka, 7-5, 6-4….

Williams sisters out at French Open — early

   May 31, 2012 7:27 am    0

Even if you’re not a tennis fan, you’ve probably heard of Venus Williams and Serena Williams, two women who pretty much changed the face of professional tennis more than 10 years ago. And they are American women who pretty much learned the game on public courts in Compton, outside of Los Angeles. For the first…
