1000061_10151550530367753_1846783606_nI can’t think of one personally. Sharapova is such a priss, a tool, a ridiculously annoying player. I mean there’s been Nastase in my lifetime, Leconte, Johnny Mac, Evert, Connors, Seles, and now Kyrgios, but have any been half as annoying as Maria?! I don’t think so.

cc

Nick Kyrgios is taking a lot of heat for his court behavior and the tanking of the one game vs. Gasquet, out of frustration.

Vika Must Be Stopped!

10599615_914432971905000_1894919509221900455_nI don’t want anyone to take this the wrong way, but me, an avowed women’s tennis disliker, is into this Quarters match between Serena and Vika. You know a rivalry and it’s players have reached star, even superstar status, when the two players are known by their first names or nick names. Basically, the only rivalry in women’s tennis today is between Williams and Azarenka. And this match today, after Williams came back after a questionable lines and umpire decision at the French to beat Vika in three sets, is a real good one.

ivo

Ivo Karlovic scored one of the biggest wins of his career today at Wimbledon, taking down the two time Wimbledon semifinalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 76 46 76 76.

The 36 year old who is the No. 23 seed, is the oldest man to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals since fellow Croat Niki Pilic in 1976.

You have to admire Karlovic, his career came out of nowhere. Back in 2003, his first year on the ATP Tour, he made the third round at Wimbledon and the US Open. One might have thought Karlovic was a fluke and would fade away but he’s won 278 career singles matches including six singles titles and two more in doubles.
