It has been a while since I last wrote a blog entry for TennisGrandstand. I have been on vacations and what good is a vacation if you take your laptop with workstuff with you? It’s just not a vacation. Did you go on vacations? If so, how was the weather? I hope a lot less rainy than mine was.
Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy make it official
Caroline Wozniacki has been struggling for quite a while now. She hasn’t won a tournament since April and her performances at the French Open and Wimbledon weren’t exactly, to put it mildly, of high quality. Then the US Open series started and two second round losses at the Cincinnati Open and the Rogers Cup versus Roberta Vinci and America’s upcoming talent Christina McHale followed in quick succession. But this week everything seems to be good. Caroline Wozniacki made to the finals of New Haven and won in straight sets versus Czech Petra Cetkovska 6-4 , 6-1.
Rory McIlroy confirmed that Caro and him are dating by telling the press that you can “refer to her as my girlfriend now.”
Ana Ivanovic arrives in New York and shows off US Open attire
Has anyone kept up with Ana Ivanovic lately? She is making quantum leaps since she hired coach Nigel Sears. And it is as I have been saying for years now: Girl’s got game! Just got to have the right coach to put the finishing touches on her style. Just like myself, Ana is excited for the US Open 2011.
It’s always great to be back in New York and go to some of my favourite restaurants here. Practice has been going well this week – let’s just hope the weather holds up. Now that the draw is out, the excitement is even greater…
And I am not just excited because I think Ana can survive the first week but also because I like her US Open dress. For more information you can always take a look at Ana Ivanovic’ official Facebook Page.
Bondi Bands: Because I hate it when sweat gets in my eyes!
Don’t you just hate it when you are playing a sport intensely and sweat gets in your eyes. You spend more time whiping the sweat off your forehead instead of actually doing what you are supposed to do: Play the sports! That’s why I started to use Bondi Bands. Bondi Band is awesome athletic headwear for men, women and children. The headband that has no slip and no drip.
