2009 Western & Southern Women’s & Masters IV

Hey Tennis Friends!

A little local scenery to start out this video . . .

Now, to be fair to Ohio, we all need the prison systems, and they have to be located somewhere, but, in other states they have big signs along the highway warning drivers not to pick up hitchhikers because of the proximity to the prisons. The only sign close to that, on this particular stretch of highway, was a “pedestrian crossing” sign.

CORRECTION: I meant to say that Ernests Gulbis was last year’s quarterfinalist, not last week’s.

The final scores for the matches I mentioned are:

Flavia Pennetta d. Venus Williams 7-5(2), 6-4

Sybille Bammer d. Serena Williams 7-5, 6-4

Dinara Safina d. Peng Shuai 6-3, 6-4

Dinara’s opponent in tomorrow’s quarterfinal is Kim Clijsters.
When asked if she’s surprised at how well Clijsters is playing, Dinara responded, “For me, not. You cannot lose your talent. You cannot lose anything. It is there. If you are the great player, doesn’t matter. Give now to Sampras a racquet, and he will play exactly the same. Yeah, maybe she will be a little bit slower, but she’s still young.”

YAY!  I won the women's trophy!

YAY! I won the women's trophy!

I’ll see you next time, with more tennis, . . . outside the lines!
