Star Is Born

    Victoria Duval became the talk of the U.S. Open in New York on Tuesday, when she scored the biggest upset of the tennis tournament by upsetting 11th-seeded Samantha Stosur, a former Open champ. Already, speculation is brewing about whether the 17-year-old Haitian-American is the next rising star on the competitive women’s circuit.

Sweet 16 Comes With French Kiss

Serena Williams is 43-2 in matches this year, winning her last 31. Maria Sharapova knows the routine. The French Open was Williams’ 16th Major. Critics still debate whether she’s the greatest of all time in women’s tennis. Duh.

A Star Is Born

    The look on Sloane Stephens’ face immediately after she upset Serena Williams in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open Tuesday night was priceless. So was her game.
    Though Serena had a tough time navigating the rough waters with a back injury, something she said she injured before the match and tweaked in the 2nd set, give the 19-year-old Stephens credit. She had to survive some rocky moments in the match herself, particularly early on to prevail 3-6, 7-5, 6-4.
    Stephens will meet No. 1 Victoria Azarenka tonight with the winner earning a trip to the final. No 1 is giving her chance to win against Azarenka. Regardless, Stephens has added her name to the tennis landscape.

Getting To The Good Part

While many are predicting a Maria Sharapova-Serena Williams clash for the title, the Australian Open has more drama before we reach that point. Thank Sloan Stephens for that since she will meet her mentor Serena in tomorrow’s quarterfinals. Sharapova advanced to the semis with a win over Ekaterina Makarova. On the other side of the bracket, we believe Sloan is in over her head, but we like her refreshing approach. She didn’t shy away from wanting to play Serena last night when asked by the talking heads on ESPN.

It’s Her Racket

    My favorite tennis tournament kicked off tonight with Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova and Venus Williams all prevailing in their 1st-round matches at the Australian Open. Of course Serena is the favorite on the women’s side. And unless someone has an answer for her, she will probably have her way and capture another title. We’re betting on it. But before we crown homegirl plenty of matches are to be played.
    The tournament continues through Jan. 26. ESPN and the Tennis Channel are broadcasting coverage.

Singing Her Praises

I love the 1st 2 lines: “I liked Venus better. Not that you had to pick one, in a John vs. Paul sort of way.”
Serena Williams is playing her best tennis. She smoking the opposition at the U.S. Open like Marley smoked trees. Writer Brian Phillips pens a good read about Serena’s current play and how she and Venus were perceived when they 1st rocked the lilly-white tennis world. As much as I like it, I wonder what if a black writer had written something similar and the outrage it would have produced.
