Serena Williams is cruising through the US Open, having reached the quarterfinals of the tournament. The tennis star has won the event the last two years, and faces Italy’s Flavia Pennetta next. If CBS is lucky, she’ll face Caroline Wozniacki in the Finals.
Thats however, not the real story of the day. Check out Miss Williams gun show she displayed in front of crowd.
Maybe it’s the camera angle on the picture below, but geez, her right arms looks twice the size of her left. Just Sayin’.
Caroline Wozniacki defeated Aliaksandra Sasnovich (6-3, 6-4) in the second round of the U.S. Open today. During the match, Wozniacki’s racket got caught in her hair. It looked painful, but she still tried to return Sasnovich’s volley. She failed, but she tried.
Roger Federer hit this crazy, between his legs shot that had eyes for Marinko Matosevic tush during their U.S. Open match Tuesday night in New York. The point was already over and Matosevic had his back to him but its still fun to watch.
Michael Jordan, who happened to be in the crowd, seemed to enjoy it.
Wow, its been awhile since I’ve posted anything tennis related, but I came across this gem and had to pass it on to you folks.
During the U.S. Open today, Kimiko Date-Krumm took on Venus Williams. The first set went well for the 43-year-old Date-Krumm, as she won 6-2. However, things got a bit worse after that. Not only did she lose the second set, but a bee (wasp?) decided to swarm around the tennis player which halted play. As a person who hates insects of all sorts, I can completely relate with her in this situation. I have been caught flailing like a baby, and screaming like a girl a time or two. Fortunately the ball kids came to the rescue and play resumed following the insect delay.
Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-4 in a hard-fought, captivating five-set classic to earn the 2014 Wimbledon Championship on Sunday. The top-seeded Serb and fourth-seeded Swiss went back and forth for three hours and 56 minutes, trading punches and counterpunches like two prizefighters in their prime.
This is Djokovic’s 7th overall Grand Slam title.
Serena Williams and Venus Williams withdrew from the Wimbledon women’s doubles competition today after Serena was unfit to get through the first set. Serena Williams came out for warm-ups and was visibly disoriented. This continued through the short match as she could barely bounce the ball and didn’t get a single serve into play against opponents Kristina Barrois and Stefanie Voegele. The match was called with the Williams sisters down 3-0.
She was checked out by doctors multiple times and was allowed to continue despite being visibly… messed up. It was such a strange sight that announcers even wondered if something would turn up in a drug test. On Saturday she was eliminated from the Women’s tournament by France’s Alize Cornet (1-6, 6-3, 6-4).
Apparently, Serena is suffering from a “viral illness.”
