Aaahhhhhhh. So much tennis!!!!
Right now I am watching the nutty Bethanie Mattek-Sands try to hold serve in the second set against Venus Williams. I've seen her take a set off of one of the Williams sisters. But still-getting Venus for your first round sucks.
Bethanie's outfit seems pretty normal. She also looks like she pumps serious iron. I like her. Once, I saw her play at the US Open and she was wearing a wierd cowboy hat that was shaped like a tennis visor. I'm not explaining it that well, but man, it was super funky. She sauntered on the court to and I like women who saunter. I bet she's fun to drink with, that's what I think. If I had to choose a drinking buddy from the women's tour, she would be on the top of my list. And after her? Pretty much any of the Russians- but not Sharapova- like, Myskina (I know she's not on the tour anymore, but still), The Kuzerator, Safina (especially if she brought her brother with her). Russians, in my experience, are fun and wild drinking people.

Venus just saved two serve points.
Oh yes! Bethanie took the second set. My guess is Venus will come back hard in the third. We'll see!!!!

I love watching tennis. Did you know that? I do.

More later.

Yours Truly,

Ha ha! You're right -- Mattek does look like a fun drinking buddy. I interviewed her once and she seemed very cool. She kept saying "No worries."

Wow! How fun to have interviewed her! I say "no worries" all the time. Is that a brooklyn thing? Via the Caribbean?

We say no worries in New Zealand too! Wow.
