2012 BNP Paribas Open II

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s the first day of the men’s main draw for the 2012 BNP Paribas Open at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden:


CORRECTION: I misspelled Santiago Giraldo’s last name in the video. It is “G-i-r-a-l-d-o”, not “G-e-r-a-l-d-o”.

Helping me close the show was sports and entertainment broadcaster Kevin Frazier. He just signed on with CBS television’s “The Insider”.

The results for the matches that I featured are:

Santiago Giraldo d. Jack Sock 5-7, 6-0, 6-1

Timea Bacsinszky / Alberta Brianti
d. Svetlana Kuznetsova / Vera Zvonareva 6-1, 6-4

2011 Texas Tennis Open IV

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Hey Tennis Friends!

The quarterfinal day is here for the Texas Tennis Open!

When I first introduced Aravane Rezai, I actually meant to say, “. . . first SEMIfinalist”, not, “finalist”, as I mis-spoke in the video.

The added touch at the end of the sign off was Sabine’s surprise to me. I had no idea what she was going to do . . . ! Great stuff, though!

The final scores for the matches I featured are:

Aravane Rezai d. Elena Baltacha 6-2, 6-2

Angelique Kerber d. Johanna Larsson 6-0, 6-1

Alberta Brianti / Sorana Cirstea
d. Sofia Arvidsson / Casey Dellacqua 6-3, 6-3

Sabine Lisicki d. Katerina Bondarenko 6-1, 6-2

2011 Texas Tennis Open II

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s day two of my coverage of the Texas Tennis Open and, as of this morning, three of the top seeds have already gone home (Peng, Wickmayer, Gajdosova). As I always remind you, if you want to see your favorite players, come out to the early rounds, because you never know what will happen!

That was not the first time that Elena Baltacha had taken out a Top 20 player. In fact, since 2010, she took out Top 10 players a few times!

Last year she took out Li Na, twice, (Indian Wells, Eastbourne) and Franchesca Schiavone (Istanbul).

This year, the #1 player from Great Britain has beaten two players who were ranked higher then she: Lucie Hdrecka (41) and Roberta Vinci (37).

The final scores for the matches I featured are:

Elena Baltacha d. Julia Georges 2-6, 7-5, 7-6(2)

Alberta Brianti / Sorana Cirstea
d. Kateryna Bondarenko / Alona Bondarenko 6-3, 3-6, [11-9]
