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. Getty ImagesThis...

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. I'm guessing Cici Bellis was pretty bored of that storyline too, because the 15-year-old American took out 12th-seeded Dominika Cibulkova in three sets today. Bellis won...

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...

It's kind of cringe-worthy, kind of funny. And kind of awkward to be confronted with Nick's crotch for such a long time!! Not that I'm complaining...
