This past Sunday, Roger Federer won the Australian Open, solidifying his post as the greatest male tennis player of all time. But does that make him the G.O.A.T.? G.O.A.T. – Greatest of All Time! I get it…it’s catchy, it’s short so that it can easily fit in a 140-character Tweet. But come on…is that … Continue reading Is Roger a GOAT?
Well folks, it was the finale we all dreamed of. Two legends, Federer vs Nadal in the Aussie Open Finals. Both in their 30's, both coming back from injuries...neither one of them having to play Djokovic or Murray on their way to the finale. Personally, I was hoping for an edge of your seat, nail … Continue reading The Legend Continues…Federer Wins
After the almost 5-hour semifinal match between Rafa Nadal and Grigor Dimitrov today, I have no words and I'm exhausted. The problem with watching a match like this is, deep down inside, you want both of them to win. Rafa because well, he's Rafa.

It was a classic "legend versus up n' comer." I mean really, Zverev is all of 19 years old, and he … Continue reading Vamos Rafa!…”I am the present”
Coco. Nah, she’s not a Serena or a Venus, or even Madonna for that matter…recognizable by first name only, YET. But she will be soon. Very soon, my fellow kitties! Coco Vandeweghe won a fierce three-set, third round match against Eugenie Bouchard last night, and I have to tell you, I really didn’t know if … Continue reading GO GO Coco!
All right, I'll admit it. I'm still a little stunned by Novak Djokovic's loss last night against Denis Istomin (who???). I knew he wouldn't make it to the finals, but to be taken out in the second round by some practical, no-name...or if he's been around, I certainly have never heard of him. I just … Continue reading Reigning in a New Era?
