The Joy of Travel! Yes, as part of my social media domination plan, I've got some Pinterest Boards set up. It's the middle of winter and we all need a lift.  I've only put up a few of my own pics up but there's so many...

A great win for Stan Wawrinka over Rafael Nadal. Rafa was injured and sweating profusely during the match and just couldn't match Wawrinka's power. Wawrinka's first major title at 28 years of age. Wawrinka took on a new coach 10 months ago and it's paying off....

A big win for Li Na at the Aussie Open, beating Dominique Cybilkova 7-6, 6-0.  Both women aren't very tall yet battled the field to get to the final. They had some great shots, although Na was too much for Cybilcova who really couldn't do...

Don't ever say Federer's washed up. He made it to the semi's and Nadal played really well. If anything, he's hit a plateau where he needs to find his next inspiration. It's the psychological wall everyone hits in their life. There's no reason why he...

This was an excellent match today at the Australian Open in Melbourne. Li Na is making a big play for the Women's singles title this year and she met up with a 19 year old Canadian girl.  I like Li Na so I couldn't cheer...

One of the Best US Open Finals Yet Even if you don't like tennis, you'd understand and appreciate the effort these two great tennis players make to win their matches. They're good guys and really phenomenal athletes. They take physical conditioning to a ridiculous new level. Early...

I like Li Na of China (32 years old) , but she was simply destroyed by Serena Williams (31 years old) in the women's singles semi final. I think the issue with Na is that she lacks sufficient power. Li Na rose in the rankings right after...

These two battled it out over 5 sets with Novak Djokovic beating Stan Wawrinka.  It's too bad because Wawrinka was outstanding. It's hard to believe he lost, but at this level it is often confidence that determines the outcome, not skill or stamina. Wawrinka is playing...

I've played a lot more mixed doubles this year and enjoyed it a lot. The women are a lot of fun to play with and the emphasis is more on fun. And with certain partners you hit it off well, and manage to play well...

I'm home sick today with a sore throat, hugging a hot water bottle. I hate being sick. Fortunately, the US Open tennis tournament on TSN is a ray of sunlight in the entertainment wasteland called TV. The Bryan brothers (twins, 35 years old) are playing Leander...

Here's a few excellent tennis TV commercials including a few really fun ones. I like this first one by Esurance with the Bryan Brothers (Twins) depicting old time tennis players. This is what the umpire should do Oh, this ad is really good. I can't leave this one...
