9 07 2010

A world record was broken yesterday during a tennis exhibition in Belgium. Kim Clijsters beat Serena Williams 6-2 6-3, while 35681 viewers watched in the King Boudewijn Stadium in Brussels. The match was umpired by Martina Navratilova.The previous record was set in 1973 between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs ,30472. Originally Henin was to play Clijsters, but she injured her elbow at Wimbledon. Serena had a foot problem so was not running optimal either, Fran Schiavone was there as a back-up. Also proves people love to watch women’s tennis.

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





Gay news, DWTS gay marriage, Navratilova breast cancer, gay marriage Iceland, bomb threat gay bar Zurich

At this week’s Dancing with the Stars Dutch Louis van Amstel danced with Niecy Nash a waltz with the theme of an interracial couple in the 60’s who could not marry. Louis told the TV audience that for gays that still is the same way and that everybody should be able to get married. According to Elisabeth Hasselbitch at The View the show should have not featured comments about gay marriage. Uhmmm?? Why not, it is a dance show for heaven’s sake with all the glitter and glamour.

Tennis super star Martina Navratilova told media yesterday that she has breast cancer. The 53-year-old 9-time Wimbledon champion is expected to make a full recovery but was upset about not being able to have full control of her life and body. I love Martina and wish good luck.

There will likely be gay marriage in Iceland in June. The tiny country of 320.000 already have domestic partnerships since 1996 and an openly lesbian prime minister and will now have full equality soon. Scandinavian countries rock when it comes to equal rights.

A gay nightclub in Zurich, Switzerland had to be evacuated on Easter sunday for a possible bomb threat. The threat was specifically made against the gay Jack Company party and police cleared the space for an hour before letting partygoers continue





Great Gossip today; grossest story in months, Real Housewives drama and Martina Navratilova’s girlfriend’s freaky past

27 08 2009

British train-wreck Kerry Katona is back in the news, not just because she was arrested and in jail for alleged assault on a man and criminal damage this week but with a really barf-inducing story. Hope you did not just eat!! According to her  step-sister her nose is rotting away. In the Daily Mail she says last year she saw her sister pulling out a piece of her septum with a tweezer that looked like the fatty piece of bacon. Kerry told her rotten black stuff built up inside as well and she has to remove it every few weeks. The hole is now through both sides so she can put the end of her glasses through it. Yuck, yuck!!!

Tennis star Martina Navratilova has a new girlfriend and that woman has a very interesting past. The woman, Julia, is a former Miss Soviet Union(the last one). In 2005 Julia’s ex lover was murdered by his then girlfriend  Cecile Brossard while having s&m-sex. Julia and the man previously had a baby that died after 5 months of internal injuries. That was just days after Julia hired a Bulgarian nanny who mysteriously disappeared shortly after that. Cecile Brossard called Julia back in 2004 saying she knew what happened to the baby. Wow, this story is like a Agatha Christie book. Hope she and Martina can make each other happy though.

A lot of Real Housewives of Orange County drama this week.  Gretchen who claimed at the reunion show that her sugar daddy(or grandpa) Jeff had not left her millions of dollars has lied a little. He left her $2.5 million!!!  And Jeff”s other multiple ex- wives or fuming that she got so much. Gretchen now is dating Jo’s ex Slade Smiley. Meanwhile 2 housewives lost their homes. I reported earlier that leather handbag face Lynne Curtis was close to losing her house and she did. apparently her marriage is about over as well now. And my favorite housewife Tamra’s house has been going on short sale meaning the bank must agree to take less then the amount borrowed for the house. According to sources Tamra and family lived above their means for years, her being a part-time Realtor and her husband Simon a car salesman. Luckily Bravo is there right now to film it all!!!





Gossip

Sarah Jessica Parker’s twins were born, 2 girls, named Marion and Tabitha. I like the first name and hate the second. Did they name her after the woman from Bravo’s Tabitha’ salon make-over?? Hope she turns out a little better looking then her.

Ricky Martin now denies having said his heart could belong to a man or a woman. Please, girl, we all now the truth, it;s just to a man!! Who is he fooling??

Martina Navratilova is going through another messy break up and divorce. She forcibly removed longtime partner Tony Layton from their shared residence and denied Layton access to her belongings. Apparently it promises to be a messy divorce. I hope it will be all OK for Martina. I met her once and she seems like a great lady.
