TGIF: Tennis Chatter

The keyword "tennis" brings up 86,200 videos on YouTube. It's incredible to think of all those videos added by users that include pro tennis matches, commercials, player appearances, etc., along with homemade videos of individuals playing tennis, watching tennis or whatever. A lot of the videos are table tennis related, as well, and some have nothing to do with tennis at all! ...They just happen to have a "tennis" tag.

The top few videos (most watched) fall under the table tennis category. So I wanted to find out what was the most watched pro tennis video. After a little digging I found that this video, featuring Mr. Novak Djokovic, is the top tennis vid with over 1.3 million views. Check it out:

Defending Bangkok champion Vania King won a nail-biter over Dominika Cibulkova 6-7, 7-6, 7-6. If King wants to salvage her mediocre season, getting to the semis or finals of the tournament she won last year (featuring a much tougher draw this year) would be quite the accomplishment.

Sybille Bammer isn't the WTA's favorite mama anymore. Lindsay Davenport has stolen that title, and, it seems, #1 Mama as well. Bonnie Ford writes about Davenport's success since her comeback.

Scroll to the bottom of this news brief to see what Venus had to say after her loss to Virginie Razzano last week in Tokyo.

Paul Henri-Mathieu and Janko Tipsarevic continued their successful seasons with wins in Moscow on Friday to advance to the semifinals.

Vote on on whether you think Sharapova will win a major next year or not. You might be surprised by the results once you vote.

haha That video is hilarious. i never took hime to be such a funny guy. How do you think he is going to do in the Madrid Masters? I'm probably going to have him go pretty far in my TTC racquet bracket. i'll have to see what his draw is like when it comes out on sunday though. Here's an early sign up email alert, if you've never played a racquet bracket.

If Djokovic is injury free, he'll do well in Madrid, don't you think? I love racquet bracket. I always play it for the majors, so maybe I'll have to try it for a Masters event once.

It's odd that they're waiting so late to come out with the bracket, isn't it?

Anyway, I love this video of Djokovic. And I love it even more that Potito Starace makes a cameo.

I didn't realize that was Starace! Hilarious...
