It All Happened On Thursday At The U.S. Open


Court 4 is packed full even before the #1 seeds Huber and Raymond step on. It’s an astonishing sight. Maybe the women do deserve equal prize money, Janko and Gilles. The American duo defeat Daniilidou and Dellacqua.

Feliciano Lopez is still one of my favorite players to watch.

Sorana Cirstea Biofile


Tennis Inspirations: “Steffi Graf. I saw her on TV and I told my parents I wanted to be like her. And my dad (Mihai). He always believed in me and he was always encouraging me, even when I have tough times. Because of him I am on my way here.”

First Tennis Memory: “My wood racquet. I started with a wood racquet when I was like four.”

When he first came onto the ATP Tour, Donald Young said that Roger Federer welcomed him by saying, “Federer came up to me actually, in the locker room, gave me a handshake and said ‘Hello, keep up the good work.’”

Now, Young is in a far different realm – he’s desperately trying to

Marion Bartoli and her father/coach Walter think outside the box. Some might say FAR outside the box.

Her training techniques have been called “unorthodox” by court observers in the past,

Another Open is upon us and Opening Day is always a little like Christmas morning–not that I celebrate Christmas, but I live in America–waking up to find the great presents awaiting our perusal.

Novak Djokovic brings this kid on the court during practice on Armstrong. Can you imagine how thrilled this kid, about ten years old, must feel? Imagine how many times he will tell this story to his friends and how much this will inspire him?
