Never seen a tennis thread, and while I am a long time tennis grand slam and AKL tournament fan, the games of Bianca Andreescu warrant a tennis post. Amazing. 159 in the world, not eligible for the WTA Auckland ASB Classic, a small event, had to qualify. Blew Wozniacki off the court, and blew Venus Wiliiams off the court. This is no one off, played well, got lucky, opponent had a bad day. I saw that after Wozniacki

 

What I love about her play is lack of fear. She plays her game and she plays aggressively, that doesn't change from ball one to the end. Its common to see any player including the top ones falter, go off the boil, but this one doesn't, she goes hard all the way. 

 

The ultimate sportsperson who plays her game, without fear, and lets the score look after itself. Something I can learn. Play to win, not play not to lose.

Not a huge fan, but absolutely acknowledge the skill and talent that the players possess.

 

I'll watch it every now and then if I'm flicking through channels and can become quite absorbed.  As soon as I hear any Sharapova-like grunts though I switch it off.





So many people complaining about yogurt these days....it's becoming a culture.

There is only one thing worse then Sharapova's grunts. It's her playing Azarenka!
