Last year was when I really got into this whole Tennis Craze! Especially with the US Open. But it all started with Wimbledon 2010 and the fact that it was always on in the NYC apartment where I lived with my Jewish host family. Then Vera Zvonareva made it into the finals. See now, here is the benefit of being from a different country – You can still cheer and support your country’s player, and do the same thing about the players from the country where you live now. And when they play each other, well it’s a win-win situation!
Of course I wanted Sharapova to win something during the US Open, but alas. Maybe this year! At least she is one of the most fashionable players out there. And this matters just as much as how well you play!
Just look at how cute her dresses are!
I believe she wore this one last year during the US Open
I think out of all tennis players out there Sharapova is my fave! I like Kurnikova too, and I am super excited to see her as one of the trainers on the next season of the Biggest Loser. Of course I am sad to see Jillian go, but Anna will rock that ranch I am sure!
A few years ago I was on the plane sitting next to Yaroslava Shvedova, who plays for Kazakhstan. She wasn’t as famous as she is now, but it was still amazing to talk to a famous person! She was super easy going, and fun! Of course an over night flight from NYC to Moscow is not a good time to get to know someone, but I still remember that conversation. It’s not often that you meet nice people on the planes these days!
Anyways, I am super excited for US Open 2011! I hope Sam is too! Last year he kept making fun of all the grunts and other noises the players were making!
Sweet Friday and a Sweet Caroline to you all!
