2015 Australian Open: Victorious Serena Williams is the 2015 Australian Open Champion

On January 31, 2015, Serena Williams won the 2015 Australian Open defeating Maria Sharapova in straight sets, 6-3, 7-6 (5). 




This victory is Serena's 19th major title and 6th Australian Open crown. Serena last won the Australian Open in 2010 after defending her 2009 title. 



After last night, Serena has won 16 straight matches against Maria, a streak that dates back over ten years to 2005.  Maria's last win over Serena came in 2004 at the WTA Championship match; she is now 2-17 versus Serena. 

Maria dethroned Serena and won her first major at Wimbledon in 2004. After the match, Maria said, "Serena...I know there are gonna be so many more moments when we are gonna play and I'm sure we're gonna be here one more time and hopefully many more times at other Grand Slams and fight for the trophy. Thank you for giving me a tough match, but I am sorry I had to win today."

Overall, Serena has a compiled a 19-4 record in Grand Slam Championship matches and a 3-1 record versus Maria in Grand Slam Championship matches (defeating Maria in the 2007 Australian Open final, the 2013 Roland Garros final, and the 2015 Australian Open final). 

After the competitive 2015 Australian Open final, Serena said, "growing up I wasn't the richest, but I had a rich family in spirit and support, and standing here with 19 championships is something I never thought would happen.  I went on the courts with just a ball, a racquet and a hope.  That's all I had. So all you guys who want to do something or be something, just never give up. You never know what can happen or who you can inspire. I'm just so honored."

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, "t he 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

GlamBiz: Rafa Nadal Inc.

Reports recently circulated indicating that Rafael Nadal earned $10 million in fees for participating in exhibitions throughout South America during to the 2013 off-season.  While the dollar figure hasn't been confirmed, the Nadal camp hasn't denied or corroborated the story.  This story seemingly flies in the face of the swash-buckling, pirate pant wearing, narrative that was spun when Nadal first emerged as a future No.1 in the mid-aughts. Nadal was the island boy who enjoyed staying home and going fishing with his amigos.  Times sure have changed! According to Forbes magazine, Rafa has earned $25 million from his off-court deals and activities.  Let's take a look at Rafa Nadal Inc.: Agent & Agency Rafa is repped by Carlos Costa, a former ATP player who earned 6 singles titles while on the tour.  Carlos and Rafa initially joined forces around 2002 under the super-agency, IMG. Carlos also managed David Ferrer, but now concentrates solely on Nadal,
