VENUS WILLIAMS AND LUCIE SAFAROVA REACH THE SEMIS OF THE MADRID OPEN

Venus Williams and Lucie Safarova are the first semifinalists in Madrid. Lucie Safarova is getting the reputation of “giant killer” having beaten numerous top ten players in the past few weeks.

Venus Williams will be the world number 2 when the new rankings come out next week and that means the Williams’  sisters are No.1 and 2 on the WTA Tour rankings. This hasn’t happened since 2003.

Venus Williams beat Sam Stosur 6-3, 6-3 while Lucie Safarova beat Nadia Petrova 6-1, 1-6, 6-4.

Our photographer Ralf Reinecke is currently in Madrid and captured  shots of Venus Williams and Lucie Safarova.

SIZZLING SHARAPOVA ATTENDS MEMPHIS DRAW

After the failed Aussie Open 2010 campaign, Maria Sharapova is back on the courts and this time she is in Memphis.  I am wondering if her self confidence is back up. Getting routed so early in Australia can’t be good for it.  If she hasn’t lost any self confidence then hey, she might very well win the Memphis tournament. Ofcourse she has to get past by US Open 2010 revelation, Melanie Oudin. Oudin did some good business last week in Paris. I am seriously hoping to see some good tennis from both in Memphis.

Anyway, I got a whole bunch of contacts on my Facebook and one of them is Maria Sharapova.  She uploaded a few photos of herself attending the Memphis draw.  Enjoy the pics, they are certainly exclusive!

Justine Needs To Comeback, For Her Own Sake

The Belgian media have recently been speculating that former world No. 1 Justine Henin is preparing for a return to professional tennis at the beginning of next year. Henin, who will compete in an exhibition in Dubai this December, has denied the rumors through her former coach, Carlos Rodriguez.

However, based on her recent forays into the workforce outside of tennis via acting, singing, and as a television presenter, we hope she hasn’t truly quit her day job.
