2014 WTT: San Diego Aviators II

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Hey Tennis Friends!

The 2014 World Team Tennis season is winding down. I went out to another event with my local team, the San Diego Aviators, and got some great highlights and interviews!

Only three more home matches for this season, including one TONIGHT, as of this posting!

Of course, when I was speaking with the Bryan brothers about their “tournaments together”, I was referring to their tournament championship wins together. I’m not even sure if anyone has tallied up how many tournaments that they have actually played in together.

Did Michael Russell just tip me off that he was retiring after this years’ U.S. Open? He is the oldest player in the Top 100, just three months older than Tommy Haas, but he has proven that he can still get good wins on the ATP Tour with his quarterfinal beat down of Lleyton Hewitt in Memphis this year. He reached the semifinal of that event, but has not had a doubles win in 2014.

Mike has been on GroundsPass.net before and is one of my favorite players, not just because of his athleticism and drive, but he is also a short player like I am. I cannot play a “tall man’s” game, so I look to dynamic players like Russell to inspire me to keep up the good work.

I’ve given you a taste of what it is like attending one of these events. In order to get the full experience, you REALLY have to come down and see the action LIVE and in person!

The World Team Tennis season is a short one, and there are only THREE home matches left for the Aviators, including this Thursday’s semifinal playoff, so don’t wait, get your tickets now! Their marquee players will ALL be playing the last THREE matches. That’s right, you can come see Daniela Hantuchova and the Bryan Brothers at each remaining home match.

2014 WTT: San Diego Aviators

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Hey Tennis Friends!

The 2014 World Team Tennis season has begun and I made a stop by the newest team in the league that just so happens to be right in my area: the San Diego Aviators!

In this featured match the Aviators take on the Boston Lobsters in the comfort of indoor air conditioning. What a great way to get out of the Southern California heat!

Before the match, I had a brief talk with Megan Moulton-Levy who told me that this time she is glad that she is playing with Coco Vandeweghe, rather than against her, like last season! By the way, Coco has moved up one notch since this video was recorded and is currently #41 in the world!

For the record, Daniela Hantuchova’s Grand Slam mixed doubles championship wins include:
2001 Wimbledon with Leos Friedl
2002 Australian Open with Kevin Ullyett
2005 Roland Garros with Fabrice Santoro
2005 U.S. Open with Mahesh Bhupati

I’ve given you a taste of what it is like attending one of these events. In order to get the full experience, you REALLY have to come down and see the action LIVE and in person!

The World Team Tennis season is a short one, and there are only THREE home matches left for the Aviators, so don’t wait, get your tickets now! Their marquee players will ALL be playing the last THREE matches. That’s right, you can come see Daniela Hantuchova and the Bryan Brothers each remaining home match.

2013 WTT: OC Breakers IV

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Hey Tennis Friends!

To celebrate the opening of the 2014 World Team Tennis season, let’s take a quick look back at one of last year’s events to show you what to expect!

In this featured match from last year’s brief season, the Breakers take on Sam Querrey and the Sacramento Capitals. Despite my extensive emcee duties for the team, I was able to get a very cool interview, as well as a surprise interview, and special announcement at the end!

The World Team Tennis season is a short one, and there are only SEVEN home matches, so don’t wait, get your tickets now!

I’ve given you a taste of what it is like attending one of these events. In order to get the full experience, you REALLY have to come down and see the action LIVE and in person!

2013 Southern California Open V

Saturday, August 3rd, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s quarterfinal day at the Southern California Open!
Once again, I have a show full of interviews and highlights. What a great way to finish my week of reporting!

Women’s Singles Quarterfinals
Virginie Razzano d. Petra Kvitova 6-7(6), 7-5, 7-6(8)
What an amazing match! It lasted for 3 hours and 35 minutes! The second longest match on the WTA tour this year. Razzano’s personal issues and injuries took their toll on her ranking over the past couple of years. As she said in the press conference, “I am not a robot!”, meaning that there is more to her life than tennis, and other complications can have an emotional toll. But, she is a fighter, and certainly proved that with this win today!

Ana Ivanovic d. Roberta Vinci 6-1, 6-7(1), 6-2
A see-saw match, and a second quarterfinal three-setter, made for a long day of tennis. The third quarterfinal also went three sets, which pushed the doubles match that I was going to cover onto the camera-unfriendly Court 2.

2013 Southern California Open IV

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!

This show is seriously jam-packed with tennis stars!
Only three days left: quarterfinals, semifinals, and the championship. Don’t miss out!

Women’s Singles
Urszula Radwanska d. Jelena Jankovic 6-2, 4-6, 6-3
Jankovic is still going strong this year by making the semis in Miami, the finals in Charleston, and winning on clay in Bogota. It’s great to see someone with such longevity in the game still ranked high: #16! She is still in the doubles draw at this tournament with partner Katarina Srebotnik.
Radwanska has had hard court wins this year over Sloane Stephens (#17) and Roberta Vinci (#16), and made the semifinals of Dubai.

Agnieszka Radwanska d. Daniela Hantuchova 6-3, 6-3
Hantuchova’s sixth title was on grass this year at Birmingham, England. The former number five ranked player’s other five singles titles are all on hard court.
Radwanska has twelve career singles titles, with two of them added this year. Both of those new titles were on hard court. The Radwanska sisters are on opposite sides of the draw, and could very possibly meet in the final.
