New Feature

I'm excited to announce a new feature here at the blog...Sports wrap up! Ok, so it will just really be sports that I'm a fan of (most sports) and I've already touched on some sport related topics...but hopefully, it will grow!

Ok, so today...Wimbledon. Quick PSA...its pronounced Wim-bul-don. Not Wim-bul-ton. Ok, pet peeve, sorry to be a know it all, but c'mon ESPN! Some interesting developments:

Federer and Safin advance. I like Federer but I tend not to root for the favorite. I never rooted for Pete Sampras either, though I like Federer more than I ever liked Sampras. Anyway, he advanced easily. Safin, the last man to beat Federer in a Slam final, also advanced in straight sets over Phillipousis. This is a pretty big win as Phillipoussis is talented, has a monster serve and was once considered an up and comer.

In a big result, Gael Montfils, the talented French phenom, upset Dominik Hrbaty. Montfils is new to the tour, but not new to winning. He was the junior world #1 and rocked every junior out there.

The women advanced pretty much routinely after the ouster of Henin-Hardenne yesterday. Now, its anyone's tournament. Who knew Henin-Hardenne hadn't played on grass in two years...not a good idea Justine. Maybe Clijsters and Mauresmo can get that 'head case' monkey off their backs sometime soon.

Lastly, a big good luck to Timmy his game, like his personality and ya gotta root for the home town hero who makes a much bigger play here than anywhere and anytime else on the tour.
