She’s Keeping Busy Alright…

If you’ve been wondering what Tatiana Golovin has been doing during her more than a month long injury hiatus from tennis, don’t worry she’s keeping herself busy. Tatiana has been seen with soccer player Samir Nasri and have been reportedly dating for the last few weeks. The second pic looks pretty steamy, but really we all knew Tatiana was like this, it was just a matter of time before a picture was taken to prove it.

Sharapova on Letterman, Makes More Awkward Attempts at Humor

Every time I see Maria Sharapova do an interview like this she always tries to make jokes and get a laugh. Most of the time she utterly fails. So, Maria, stop this awkward attempt at humor. You’re just not that funny, alright? See for yourself.

Wait a Minute, This Girl Can Actually Play

Alize Cornet impresses me more and more every time I see her play. She has reached the semis of the last two events she’s played, Tier II Amelia Island and Tier I Charleston. She is just 18 and her game seems to be especially suited for clay. She is a great retriever and can put a bit of pop on the ball as well. Though she lost to Serena Williams today, 5-7, 3-6, she did not fold in the moment and gave Serena a little bit of trouble. I predict that this kid is going to have some great results.

Serena Williams is a Better Tennis Player than Maria Sharapova

Its just a fact. Serena proved it today with her 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 victory over Sharapova in the Family Circle Cup quarterfinals. Serena Williams does everything better than Maria Sharapova. Maria’s biggest weapon, her power, means nothing against Serena. Serena out hits her every time. So, for any of you have been wondering who’s better, Serena is.

Bagel Watch! (Make That a Double)

Maria Sharapova dished her first career double bagel with her victory over American, Bethanie Mattek. Sharapova only needed 57 minutes to destroy Mattek on the green clay of Charleston. With the win, Maria overtakes Svetlana Kuznetsova as world number 3. The win also improves her record to 23-1 on the season and takes her one step closer to a tantalizing quarterfinal matchup with Serena Williams
