  • Picture Of The Day: So That’s Where She Hides The Balls

    Picture Of The Day: So That’s Where She Hides The Balls

    To this day, I still don’t entirely understand why tennis players put the spare tennis balls in their pockets on their sides. I get it that they want to be able to grab the spare and continue to their next serve without throwing off their focus too much, but why not get somebody to toss […]

  • 9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Who Let M.C. Escher Design This Tennis Court?

    Picture Of The Day: Who Let M.C. Escher Design This Tennis Court?

    Confused?  You should be!  This piece of work was created by Michael Kai.  Much like M.C. Escher before him (a popular Dutch graphic artist known for creating works which featured impossible constructions and explorations of infinity), Kai has also attempted to get the minds of other to work in ways that they never thought imaginable. […]

    Meanwhile At Wimbledon… (GIF)

    This kind of reminds me of the epic three-day, five-set, 11-hour match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut at this year’s Wimbledon tournament:  Two individuals battling back and forth with no end in sight.  Obviously their marathon battle, which will likely remain in the tennis record books for quite some time, was a little more […]

  • We All Saw You Pick Your Nose And Eat It At Wimbledon (Video)

    We All Saw You Pick Your Nose And Eat It At Wimbledon (Video)

    Perhaps it is something about the air in Wimbledon that makes those boogers taste that much better.  Or maybe the lineup at the Food Village was just too long.  How else would you explain this snot-eating incident which was caught during a live broadcast of today’s first-round match between Nicolas Mahut and John Isner. Picking […]

    Grandpa Has Wimbledon Fever (GIF)

    While most sports fans in England are fixated on the struggles of their English National soccer team, some of the interest has shifted over to the grass courts in London where the 2010 Wimbledon Tennis tournament is set to kick off.  It can be tough to catch the Wimbledon fever during a time like this, […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Scaredy Cat Ball Boy

    Picture Of The Day: Scaredy Cat Ball Boy

    This ballboy/man/judge probably isn’t cut out for this line of work. First, he should know that they do hit the ball forward, not backward and they never aim for the ball boy. Also, I don’t think your small hand and where it’s placed is going to fully cover your junk. And if it is, well, […]

  • Smaller Breasts Not Yet Translating Into Bigger Wins For Simona Halep

    Smaller Breasts Not Yet Translating Into Bigger Wins For Simona Halep

    It was only one year ago that the sporting world was fixated on the enormous 34DD breasts of Simona Halep.  However, she believed that her personal pair of sweater puppets were dragging down her game on the tennis court.  Suddenly, Simona was faced with a decision: Should she keep her large breasts and bask in […]

  • Sampras And Agassi Engage In Heated Confrontation On The Court

    Sampras And Agassi Engage In Heated Confrontation On The Court

    I recall Rocky Balboa once saying “Boy, sometimes charity really hurts,” after a tough battle with Thunderlips, but if he thought that was bad, try stepping onto the court with former tennis greats Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. The two were teamed up with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for a doubles match over the […]

  • Fan Asks Anna Kournikova, “Do I Make You Horny, Baby?”

    Fan Asks Anna Kournikova, “Do I Make You Horny, Baby?”

    One of the great things about tennis is the silence.  We all love to hear the crowd go wild during sporting events, but sometimes that silence allows us to hear things on the court that would otherwise go unnoticed at many other sporting events.  Take Andy Rodick‘s Aussie F-bomb, or Serena Williams’ line judge tirade […]

  • Andy Roddick Drops F-Bomb at Aussie Open

    Andy Roddick Drops F-Bomb at Aussie Open

    Andy Roddick does not approve of your call, Mr. Referee. Is that what they call them in Tennis? Referees? Umpires? Judges? Well whatever they’re called, Roddick is certainly not a fan of this one. Roddick didn’t care for a few of the calls while he was serving for the match against Brazil’s Thomaz Bellucci in […]

  • Tennis Ball Boy Pees Himself during Australian Open

    Tennis Ball Boy Pees Himself during Australian Open

    Tournament Official:  Well done, you made it there and back in pretty good time.  You’re not opposed to kneeling for a long period of time, are you? Points in tennis can last a decent amount of time. Potential Ball Boy: (out of breath) No, sir. Potential Ball Boy’s Mother:  He’s never had a broken bone […]

  • Alizee Paradis is One Of The Hottest Female NCAA Athletes Ever

    Alizee Paradis is One Of The Hottest Female NCAA Athletes Ever

    There have been a number of gorgeous female college athletes in the last ten years, but Alizee Paradis is by far the hottest.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at the pictures and then try to argue otherwise.  And if you say Jenn Sterger, you are wrong, since she was never an athlete […]

  • Marat Safin Thinks Agassi Should Give Up His Titles

    Marat Safin Thinks Agassi Should Give Up His Titles

    Marat Safin is a former top-ranked tennis player.  As such he apparently believes that he has the right and duty to call out Andre Agassi on all the titles he won.  Safin thinks that Agassi should give all his titles back after a recent confession that Agassi tested positive for banned substances and lied about […]
