    Serena Williams Hit Herself in the Face with Her Own Racket (Video)

    When it’s all said and done, Serena Williams is going to be on the short list for “greatest women’s tennis player of all time.” She doesn’t have as many Grand Slam singles titles as Steffi Graf or Martina Navratilova, but the only tournament she hasn’t won at least four times is the French Open. So […]

    Jerzy Janowicz Has Epic Meltdown at Australian Open (Video)

    By beating India’s Somdev Devvarman, Polish tennis player Jerzy Janowicz reached the third round of the Australian Open on Wednesday, equaling his furthest ever run at a men’s Grand Slam Tournament (he made it to the third round at Wimbledon in 2012). But let me tell you, it certainly wasn’t easy for Janowicz.  Despite being ranked 24th […]

    The 13 Most Beautiful Women at the 2013 Australian Open

    In case you hadn’t noticed, the first grand slam tennis tournament of the year, the Australian Open, is going on right now. This event is often overlooked here in the Northern Hemisphere given that it comes just a few weeks after Christmas…in the dead of winter. But in Australia it’s summer, and tennis is in […]

    Ball Girl Makes An Incredible Catch At The Australian Open (Video)

    Whenever Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer meet up on the tennis court, highlight reel moments are bound to be created.  However, more often than not, those highlights are being produced by their tennis racquets.  But while their racquets did produce some remarkable highlights during their meeting in the semi-finals of the Australian Open earlier this […]

    Tennis sure does have some awfully weird rules.  Think about it.  Raising one’s voice while arguing a call with a line judge or the chair umpire will likely earn that player a disqualification and possibly even a fine or suspension.  However, you are free to touch and grab any part of a female line judge’s […]

    Ball Boy’s Head Nearly Decapitated At Australian Open (Video)

    During a first round match between Roger Federer and Alexander Kudryavtsev at the Australian Open, you’d figure most people would credit Federer with having the “deadlier shot” in this battle. Not quite. While Federer was hitting balls with his usual precision, en route to the 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 victory, Kudryavtsev was busy proving that he […]

    Li Na’s Post-Match Interview Was More Like A Comedy Act (Video)

    China’s own Li Na is not only a great tennis player, but it appears as though she has quite the sense of humor as well.  Following what may very well be a career-defining semi-final victory over top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open, Li fielded several questions on the court for the fans, and some […]

    Is That A Rocket In Caroline Wozniacki’s Pocket? (Pic)

    Okay, so we are all quite certain that is a tennis ball being tucked away into Caroline Wozniacki’s spandex pants, and that she was not in fact born a man.  At least we hope not, else I would feel awfully weird thinking about how much I enjoyed ogling those images of the number-one ranked female […]

  • Radwanska’s Racquet Breaks In Half During Point (Video)

    Radwanska’s Racquet Breaks In Half During Point (Video)

    I hope Agnieszka Radwanska had a warranty on that faulty racquet. As for the fans in attendance, let’s just say they were lucky to avoid serious injury when the head of Radwanska’s racquet soared into the stands after she returned a Kimiko Date-Krumm serve during first-round action at the Australian Open Tuesday. You simply have […]
