Why Serena Williams was wrong.

Serena Williams caused outrage yesterday when she described the victim in the Steubenville rape case as ‘lucky,’ then went on to say ‘she shouldn’t have put herself in that position.’Her comments have caused controversy because they imply that the victim was at fault for causing her rape....more

Caroline Wozniacki And My Personal ‘Becky Look at Her Butt’ Moments – A Retrospective

I don’t follow tennis except for when I get news updates about Venus and/or Serena Williams whooping someone’s ass. I didn’t know who Caroline Wozniacki was until the stunt she pulled heard ‘round the internets. I was so annoyed by it that I tweeted her....more

Serena Williams Sets Earning Record

This weekend 20 year old golfer, Michelle Wie won her first championship. This is pretty exciting, especially since she has been playing in LPGA events since she was 12, but we aren't going to talk much about that this week because something much more glamorous happened in women's sports this weekend. Serena Williams set the record for earning the most prize money in a single season in the WTA. EVER....more

I love Serena, always have.  In spite of more

Serena Williams Loses Her Temper, Loses Her Match

If you were watching the U.S. Open you saw Serena Williams come undone. Who am I trying to kid? If you were watching tennis, or ESPN, or CNN or even your local news you probably saw the clip. In a sport where decorum rules the courts it is unusual to see a tennis player throw a fit during a match. I haven't seen an outburst like that during the U.S. Open since John McEnroe played the game. ...more

I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree, but that's okay 'cause if you're a tennis fan, ...more

Williams Sisters to Face Off in Wimbledon Finals

Venus and Serena Williams are about to make history. Again. Tomorrow will mark the third time the sisters will be meeting each other at the Wimbledon Ladies' Singles Final. Then a couple of hours later they will be playing as a team in the Ladies' Doubles Finals.  I think the right word to use in a situation like this is "dominant".  ...more

Wow, Venus dominated after the beginning. The match was too quick for me :)

Opening Night At The US Open Tennis Tournament

I can now die a happy woman. After all these years, I've finally seen Serena Williams play tennis in person. I heard the grunts in person. I saw the pretty little black dress with the disappearing bow in person. I saw the power and the finesse in person. What an incredible player! Venus was the opening act for little sis, and she pounded her opponent Kira Nagy of Hungary 6-2, 6-1. First off, the Althea Gibson tribute was very moving and well done. Former New York City Mayor David Dinkins gave a great speech about the life of his good friend. The parade of First Black Women was really fun. I don't think I've been anywhere with that many influential and inspiring black women in one place. In fact black folks were well represented in the stands of Ashe Stadium and it was good to see. You can check out some pictures here. Aretha Franklin brought the house down with her rendition of "Respect," and then later during a changeover when they played "Think" through the PA system, she led the crowd in a little dance. Others in the house, Gladys Knight, Christie Brinkley (who I thought was Heidi Klum), and Janet Jackson in the Williams family box. Read The Full Post At Megan's Minute ...more

Tennis Tidbits: Roger Federer Rolling Toward The US Open

Cross Posted At Megan's Minute Roger Federer set himself up nicely for another US Open win with the demolition of James Blake in the final of the Western & Southern Financial Masters in Cincinnati 6-1, 6-4. The win gave Roger his 50th career title and with it the US Open Series. James got stomped in the first set and in the second he was simply out matched. Blake did well for himself getting to the final this week with wins over Juan Carlos Ferrero, Sam Querrey, and every betting man's player Nikolay Davydenko, but I'm beginning to feel his chances of making noise at the US Open are pretty much over. By all rights, Lleyton Hewitt should have beaten Roger in the semis yesterday when he had him in a third set tie-break. Throughout the match Hewitt played the best I've seen him play in a long time but he played a lousy tie-break to lose a match he should have won. Poor CBS. Not only do they get a blow-out final with the Federer/Blake match---so much so, they made the dubious decision to replay some of the match as filler---but every true tennis fan must have been doing what I was doing at the beginning of the match. That is flipping back and forth between ESPN2 to watch the nearly 20 minute epic game between Justine Henin and Jelena Jankovic at the Rogers Cup women's final in Toronto. ...more
