Wimbledon - Day 1 - All about VEE

Venus Williams during the 2009 Wimbledon Champ...Image via Wikipedia
It can be so strange to see the grass courts at Wimbledon after the watching the red terre battu for the past couple months. But on we go...

Did anyone see Venus's outfit today? I need a better look at it. I do know that it is a jumper. But, it seems to be made of terry cloth. I didn't catch the match today and we'll see if she wears it again.  I wish that she went for better quality and more upscale looks w/her EleVen line.

I hope she kicks butt in this tournament b/c I definitely enjoy her game and I bet she won't be active for too  much longer.

US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry.



Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again?

Also, is this logo actually in Arial Italics?

According to the USTA, "the logo created by renowned graphic design firm Chermayeff & Geismar & Haviv, is a streamlined and modernized version of the tournament’s iconic flaming ball logo, which was first introduced in 1997."

The old logo had a solid 20-year run. This logo probably won't make it this long because it lacks pizzazz and lacks the distinction the previous logo offered. 



And here's a look at an earlier version of the US Ope…

US Open 2018: Rafael Nadal in Practice to Defend Open Chamionship Title

Rafael Nadal took an hour to work on his forehands in the new Louis Armstrong stadium at the US Open, today. 



Accompanied by his champion coach, Carlos Moya, Rafa spent the session working on down-the-line forehands and serves. 



Rafa appeared to be at ease during the practice session but tensed up during as he practiced serving.  Overall, this was one of the more aggressive practice sessions this blogger has seen and one the first times seeing a male tennis pro with male hitting partners and not other pros. I suppose this is one of the benefits of having a Grand Slam winning coach.
