FASHION FIX: Victoria Azarenka loses to Venus Williams but wins in Nike

Last night we were treated to an all out battle of WTA titans when former top lady ballers Venus Williams and Victoria Azarenka faced off in the Stanford second round. There was much anticipation for this match up and it didn't disappoint. They both hit stinging groundies and created acute angles as they ran each other to all parts of the court. The pair had played three times...

Will the U.S. Open Series mark a return to form for Andy Murray and Victoria Azarenka?

Andy Murray and Victoria Azarenka aren’t as different as it might seem from the outside. They both own two majors, and won one title in 2012 and another in 2013 (the U.S. Open and Wimbledon for Murray and two Australian Open championships for Azarenka). Both of them prefer the firm footing of a hard court. They can be, eh, vocal when playing - he to his baller box and she to basically...

Wimbledon early-round notes: get ready for routs

Now that we’re well into the action at Wimbledon, it’s time to look at the draws, make some predictions, and draw some conclusions. Outside of the tippy-top of women’s tennis, and sometimes inside that tippy-top, uncertainty and unpredictability reign supreme. Take the bottom half of the women’s draw at Wimbledon. Four of the top ten seeds are already out, and three of them...

WIMBLEDON: Serena takes a seat, Gulbis and Azarenka fall, and a wolverine meets a bull

No, you're not seeing things. Serena Williams didn't decide to spontaneously crowd surf during her doubles match with sister, Venus, today at Wimbledon, or take a mid-match breather in the stands. She was running hard after a ball and couldn't stop her momentum. ReRe was fine, a little embarrassed maybe, but not hurt. I can't speak for the fan who caught her, though...

An Upbeat Azarenka and a Grumpy Jankovic Fall in Eastbourne

By Tumaini Carayol (June 17, 2014) EASTBOURNE, ENGLAND – Whatever mood Jelena Jankovic was in, it was not a good mood. For one, she was standing on, in her view, the worst surface known to mankind.
