Na Li playing against Kim Clijsters in Women's Finals

If you must know, I'm a tennis fanatic. (I played in high school for 3 years and was the captain during my senior year). I also follow the tournaments if I can; I mostly like watching men's tennis. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad there are strong women players but the rankings aren't as consistent as the men's. Remember when Maria Sharapova was #1 in addition to being a style icon? Now ranked at #14, it's like Maria Sharapova who? Basically my main point is that women's tennis is more unpredictable in terms of who's the best (although props to Na Li for being the first Asian to make it to finals!). In men's, the top three have been Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic for quite some time. It gets more interesting seeing them face each other in a match.

Anyway, this Australian Open tournament, Nadal lost in quarterfinals and Federer lost to Djokovic in semifinals. It was down to Novak Djokovic versus Andy Murray in the finals. I was rooting for Murray because of his overall attitude (Djokovic has a bit of a temper) & because he's hotter haha. However, after 3 sets, Djokovic took the trophy and Murray came up with 2nd place.

Until the next Open tournament... :)

Cor, you must be good at tennis still! You'll have to go to Wimbledon one day and enjoy a spot of tennis and strawberries and cream!

I'm obsessed with tennis, Audrey! I still adore Maria Sharapova, even though she's fallen, and I'm also a fan of Melanie Oudin. I'd been following Nadal during the Australian Open, so I was a bit disappointed to see him lose.
