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.

2013 BNP Paribas Open II

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!
The women’s main draw has started, so, I figured that I would cover some of the ladies in today’s report:

The results for the matches that I featured are:

Olga Govortsova d. Mandy Minella 6-2, 3-6, 6-4
Despite the 29 point difference in their rankings (#67-Govortsova, #96-Minella), this was a pretty even match-up. I had seen Govortsova play doubles before (she owns 8 WTA doubles titles), but, I had never heard of Minella. Both of these players have been on the tour for about seven years!

Lourdes Dominguez Lino d. Grace Min 1-6, 6-4, 6-3
After a strong first set by Min, Dominguez Lino was able to make adjustments. Both plater had called for their coaches a couple of times. This was a great showing for 18 year old Min, but, the extensive experience of the 31 year old veteran, Dominguez Lino, was the key.

2011 Mercury Insurance Open II

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s the second day for the Mercury Insurance Open at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California!

CORRECTION:
When interviewing Agniezska, I mentioned that she made the quarterfinals at Stanford “last year”, . . . what I meant was last week. She actually made the semifinals at Stanford last year.

Kimiko Date-Krumm was originally only scheduled for today’s singles match. Because of a player withdrawal from a scheduled doubles match, somehow Kimiko (who wasn’t even in the doubles draw), partnered up with Zhang Shuai (who lost her singles match today), for a doubles team that was put into the line up. Their result is below.

Here are the final scores from the matches that I featured:

Kimiko Date-Krumm d. Gisela Dulko 7-5, 6-0

Agnieszka Radwanska d. Elena Baltacha 6-0, 7-6(4)

Sara Errani / Roberta Vinci
d. Liezel Huber / Lisa Raymond 6-3, 6-1

Vera Zvonareva d. Jill Craybas 6-4, 7-5

Kimiko Date-Krumm / Zhang Shuai
d. Chia-Jung Chaung / Olga Govortsova 7-6(4), 6-4
