Wasn't Leander Paes just on court yesterday winning a U.S. Open title?
He and Cara Black won the mixed doubles title yesterday over Black's regular partner, Liezel Huber, and Jamie Murray. He came up short here, though, as he and his partner, Lukas Dlouhy, fell to the Bryan brothers in straights.
Good run by Leander here, but a great win for Bob and Mike. Personally, this year I was pulling for them to focus on grabbing the Gold in Beijing, but a Slam's always nice! This is their sixth Major (even though I think it should be their 16th or so!)
I think the Bryans are two of the best tennis players of all time. Crazy statement, ya think? Check this out to see my reasoning behind that.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
