Wimbledon final Zvonareva-S.Williams

2 07 2010

Serena Williams in the final of Wimbledon is about as expected as anyone ever, just like maybe Martina Navratilova in her hey-day or Steffi. Vera Z. on the other hand is a huge surprise. I have always thought she has major potential. Great groundstrokes,good service, great feel for the ball, moves well .Except mentally it just never came together .Until this fortnight at Wimbledon that is. Her being there tomorrow on Centre Court is about as big of a surprise as  my fav Francesca Schiavone was at Roland Garros, really out of the blue, but both capable players. I like Vera a lot and seen her play often too, in Stanford, the U.S Open en Charleston and she is so entertaining to watch. Her opponent yesterday Pironkova played a great first set winning 6-3, but then it was over and she made too many mistakes. Zvonareva played super solid again like against Kimmie and won the last 2 sets 6-3 6-2. Serena made an end to the fairytale of young Czech Kvitova winning 7-6 6-2. Kvitova played a great first set though and shows there is much for her in store in the future. I think Serena will win tomorrow but if Vera keeps her nerves under control it might be a tight match.

Other news yesterday showed that the fall Justine Henin suffered against Kim in the quarter-final was a lot worse than first expected. She tore something in her elbow and it out for 2 months meaning she also misses the U.S Open and the Battle of the Belgians next week. This was gonna be the tennis match with the most spectators in history and now she is being replaced by Serena Williams and will be called Battle of the World. Hope and think people will still show up and hope Justine heals quickly. I love seeing her play.Serena WilliamsZvonareva-Dementieva in Charleston





Gossip, Capriati overdose ,Melrose place star in trouble. Mel Gibson

29 06 2010

I heard the sad news yesterday that former tennis star Jennifer Capriati ended up in the hospital after an overdose. The former olympic gold medalist and 3 time Grand slam winner used too many prescription drugs according to her family. She has had her bouts with depression and suicidal thought and was busted for shoplifting and smoking pot in the past. She recently dated a famous porn star and had not played tennis since 2005 because of an injury. Hope she will be fine soon.

Amy Locane played Sandy in the original Melrose Place and was my favorite until she got ousted and was replaced by Jo. She was arrested in New Jersey yesterday for second-degree vehicular homicide. Not good. She crashed into the side of another car as it was trying to turn in a driveway and killed a passenger, the driver is still in critical condition. Amy had been drinking way too much and might be going to jail for 10 years. Sad.

Mel Gibson’s true colors are shining trough again. He got a restraining order against her to make her shut up about some alleged abuse on his account. Media reported that he punched her in the face so hard that she lost some teeth. What a way to treat your wife of a little over a year and the mother of your kid. Whether this is true or not Gibson is a nasty vile man.

NeNe Leakes, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is getting a divorce after 12 years of marriage. They had a bad year with her son being busted with pot and rumors of an affair of NeNe with an NFL player. Now sources say he might be giving out some juicy details about NeNe’s past. I like Nene so I feel sorry for her.

Bristol Palin had her acting debut in Secret Life of Teenage Mothers and she proved not to be as good in faking it as her horrible mother. This is some truly shiteous acting.





Roland Garros day 3

26 05 2010

Henin, Sharapova, Hantuchova, Wickmayer and Bartoli were easy winners in their first rounds at Roland Garros. One match certainly was the highlight of the day and not because the level was so high, but it sure was dramatic. Kimiko Date Krumm, the 40-year old veteran from Japan beat last year’s finalist Dinara Safina in three sets. The first set was a quick 5-0 for Safina who on the set 6-3.In the second set Safina lead 2-0, but it went downhill from there. Safina has been seriously injured for the start of the year and came back only weeks ago but hitting so many errors is a shame. She even lead 4-2 in the third eventually losing 6-3 4-6 5-7. In the last game Safina hit 4 unforced errors in a row against a Date who injured herself on her calve and could barely walk. This Date comeback is getting better and better though, she plays so extremely smart. A nice counter-balance to the tons of ball-bashers on tour right now.





Australian Open Day 9

26 01 2010

Playing 2 matches in a row on a high level was more then Nadia Petrova could take, today against Justine Henin she played not too good at all. Henin played not at her best either so even though the latch lacked great rallies it was nerve-wracking. Henin won with 7-5 7-6 and is in the semi-finals at Melbourne again in her second tournament back!! Amazing stuff. She will play China’s Jie Zheng in the semi final. Zheng beat Maria Kirilenko 6-1 6-3. Kirilenko was injured and tired from playing singles, doubles and mixed ,but Zheng played great and I would not be super surprised if she beats Henin. Rooting for Henin though, also because Zheng is known as a spoiled bitch.
