The next generation of tennis rivalry is starting to take shape. While Roger Federer has been pumping out kids like a factory, Novak Djokovic took to Twitter today with is message
I’m not going to be sure on how I want to react to this for a while. I’m happy for him, I’m sad for myself, and I know that she is saying thanks to God. Hopefully this child is cute, and talented in some way, shape, or form. Congratulations to you two… I guess. You guys just continue to live it up in Greece all engaged and with child. Don’t worry about me. I’ll just be putting all my hopes and dreams in the trash, and into prayers that I don’t hear this kind of thing from Grigor.
I was struggling to make a post about my trip to Indian Wells, and going to the LA Tennis Challenge. I was struggling to do lack of internet at home, and more hours at work.
It wasn’t going to be that interesting anyway. A good time was had by all.
Now something that I need to write about is something I thought we went over before. I guess some people don’t get it.
At the Sony Open Tennis player party in Miami the other day, someone by the name of Daniela Hantuchova did something very bad. Let’s see if you can tell what it is.
Do you see it? Do you see the crimes she’s committing to my eyes?
She is wearing those damn shoes. You know the one strutted around Australia with. Girl, they don’t look good. They don’t fit. They aren’t even like nice shoes. Do you not have room for anything else? I know the rest of that outfit isn’t taking up much room. You obviously did not bring a hair brush. I don’t get it. Please get rid of them. They aren’t doing you any favors. Thank you.
Actually, lets take a look back at Indian Wells now that we’re together again.
Forget that Rafael Nadal existed, I stumbled upon this little treasure in Inside Tennis.
What the heck is this? So much photoshop. Horrible, horrible photoshop. The random racquet/nunchuk combo. The little ribbon of light that supposed to represent the spin. His goofy face. Babolat, you a much better than this. You don’t need ads like this. People ask for the AeroPro Drive (or the “Nadal Racquet”) everyday without seeing this. Please stop this.
Well, after yesterday’s post, I needed something to calm my turbulent emotions. So naturally, I started looking at clothes. More importantly, I started looking at what everyone is wearing for the Aussie Open.
Yellow seems to be the color of the season, with the top ladies matching the Aussie heat with the Sunny color.
Ana Ivanovic starts us off with this yellow and grey number that I quite like.
Caroline, you do not disappoint. Caroline Wozniacki played Kaia Kanepi in the 3rd round of the French. She wasn’t doing to well, and I’m pretty sure she wasn’t happy about it. How do I know this? Because when a chair umpire didn’t rule in her favor she went nuts. Yes, I know that she was right and the ball was out, but girl you need to keep your cool. You were completely lost after that. Anyway, the goods begin at around 1:45.
Yes, it is finally time for our Dmitry Tursunov interview part 2. Unfortunately the last question and a half get cut off. I asked him “Who would you rather: Katy Perry or Lady Gaga?” Like any smart human being he chose Katy Perry. My next and final question was I would say the most important question of the entire day. Like this answer was going to be very crucial to my life. The last question was “Who would you rather: Katy Perry… or (drumroll please……) Me?”
Yep. I just actually asked that. It’s what popped into me head (OMG this wasn’t totally scripted and rehearsed, who would have guessed?!) so I asked it. Dmitry’s answer Me, because he has never met Katy, and knows me and well I seem pretty cool and nice. You know what. I’m took it. I took it and ran with it. Afterwards, we treated him and his doubles partner, our ballgirl/ex-ballgirl group new love Grigor Dmitrov, to cupcakes made by our favorite Katie Burns. Then Dmitry called me out on my twitter bio (@fierceb). Yes, when I signed up for twitter I didn’t have anything witty or clever to put there at the time and needed something fast, but hey I am 24 and I do like men.
Yes, this really happened. You can ask Dmitry Tursunov himself. He was a pretty hilarious twitter which you can follow @TursunovTales.
We would like to thank Dmitry from the bottom of our little hearts for doing this interview. Seriously, we really appreciate it. Good luck to you and your doubles partner Grigor at the US Open next week! You know that you have us rooting for you here in LA!
When Victoria and I came up with the idea of starting a tennis blog, one thing we wanted to do was show the other side of tennis players, the one you normally don’t get to see, the one that has nothing to do with tennis. We knew that we wanted to include interviews with tennis players and ask them the most random questions we could come up with. And we knew one of the first interviews we wanted to do was with this guy, Dmitry Tursunov. We knew we wanted to interview him because it was bound to be random and hilarious, and Dmitry didn’t disappoint. He made us promise that we would say fantastic things about him, which is pretty easy to do! Over the past 10 years that I have worked at Farmers Classic, Dmitry is the one player I have met that has stayed true to himself. I am a fan of his not only because of his great tennis playing, but because he is genuine, friendly, and absolutely hilarious. Anyways, here is what you have all been waiting for…. Part 1 of our Dmitry Tursunov interview!!! We were super excited to get this interview, and I think it turned out to be pretty successful!
