Maria and Grigor Step Out In London

The couple that wears matching outfits together... stays together? Grigor Dimitrov and Maria Sharapova were finally spotted in London together as they browsed street art and the Dover Street Market.  There were split rumours earlier this year, but it looks they came about simply because the couple like to remain private.

Catching up with Basel-Born, Marco Chiudinelli

US Open 2014 Fashion Hits and Misses

I've been moaning a lot about how boring tennis fashion has been this year to the point I didn't even bother to review Wimbledon, (they banned coloured undershorts and I gave up). So I'm grateful that the US Open is bringing it; I'd rather have ugly or wild fashions than boring, safe ones. With that in mind, let's start with Serena Williams.

Roger Federer. Michael Jordan. Marinko Matosevic. Butt-tweener. You can read more about it here.  Image via ESPN.com There's a lot of talk about the decline of American tennis and it's really boring.

US Open Day 1: Bees, Potty Mouths and Almost Upsets

Image credit: Anita Aguilar In a day of 'almost' upsets, Nick Kyrgios managed to pull one off over 32 year old veteran Mikhail Youzhny. The dangerous Aussie faced the 21st seed out on court 17, and from what I hear it was a great match, (I caught the end of the second set at 3am... and went back to sleep). After winning the first two sets, Kyrgios let his foot off the pedal...
