By now you’ve probably seen the multitude of photos floating around the internet and/or Caro’s Instagram and while they are incredible in their own right, the real story is just how long it took to make that all happen.

I happened on this absolutely adorable video of Rafa riding around Melbourne for Kia's Open Drive, talking about his love of cooking ("go for fishing and then cook a fish") and his dislike of the dark ("if it not for going to party, I like the day better"). He was put to the test with a few balance tasks with ping pong balls and dice and while he didn't do so well (as if any of...
Ana Ivanovic is no stranger to the covers of some of the world’s most popular magazines and her recent turn as MOST FITNESS magazine’s January 2016 cover girl was yet another in a long list of beautiful photo shoots and inspiring articles.

I just happened on Serena’s November Wired cover while in New York City and set a reminder to check out the article when I got home. It was brief but quite motivating and certainly inspiring. I love that Serena likes to use her tremendous reach to try to make a difference in the world. You go girl! You can read the article here.

There was an enthusiastic group of fans cheering on each of the players and no shortage of smart phones taking pictures.
We sat down with Lucie following her 1st round win at the 2015 Connecticut Open and it didn't take long before the laughter ensued. She was both thoughtul and comical with her answers but I really wish there was video proof of her last karaoke adventure! Check out her answers below and enjoy!
by JAMES HENRY CINCINNATI – Once again, Novak Djokovic is on the edge of history. He is just one win away from claiming his first pottery vase trophy at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

by JAMES HENRY CINCINNATI – Ever had one of those days? Well, “pull a Serena” and turn it around. In her quarterfinal showdown against Ana Ivanovic at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, a rematch of last year’s final, that’s just what Serena Williams did. The defending champion dropped the first set and then fell behind 3-4. But she rallied to break Ivanovic’s...

But a right wrist injury prevented...
