Sparkles!!!

So for the Australian Open Nike decided that Rafa should live the hot pink life. The sparkly dark pink stripe on his shorts seemed all too familiar. I then realized it was very similar to the shades of pink the US Women's National Gymnastics Team during the 2009-2012 quad. Welcome to Hot Pink Nation Rafa.

Anything you can Ninja... I can Ninja better?

Rafael Nadal and Aga Radwanska showing off their soft hands and amazing touch but who flicked the backhand better. The Magician from Mallorca or the Ninja of Krakow.

The Word of the Day is... Laces


So watch for yourself and see who broken lace is more dramatic Rafa's or Tonya's.

The Masters of the Masters

The World Tour  Finals are essentially the World Championships of tennis then why do they stay in the same spot for so long when other olympic sports have a different host for each staging of the championships  They are called the Master Series in which you can gain the most points on the tour outside of the Slams therefore why not have them rotate through these five  venues that could host the event in November for the event that used to be called the Masters. Another option is to take them somewhere that doesn't have a Masters event such as South America. Having the event rotate between venues would make it more of an event because it won't be there for another six years. These five locations all play differently and two of them have the option of the roof while Paris is an indoor venue. The order I would but them in would be Indian Wells, Madrid (which would be on clay) , Miami, Shanghai, Paris. With Madrid on clay you get the variety of surfaces which would make it a more interesting stop in the rotation of the Finals. Of the nine thousand points available to the winners of the Masters events six thousand of the are come from purely outdoor events. So why should the biggest Masters event be where the least amount of points are given. Another venue could be the Olympic tennis stadium in Rio after it is used for the Olympics.

The Tokyo Towel Dance

Tokyo has a roof but during a short rain delay Tuesday during the Jankovic/Morita.  For the duration of the delay it did not seem like the roof was closed but more of a exercise in how many different ways can we try to dry the court with towels and fans. Even Shino made an appearance.
