Atlanta is hosting the Atlanta Tennis Championships which is one of the warm up tournaments to the US Open and is part of its series. We don't have the top-top men here but there are some very good players including the #1 US man, Mardy Fish, who has really done well lately.
Some of my good friends and tennis teammates went to the championship today. IT WAS HOT!!! We were all sweltering...I can't imagine what it must feel like to these men playing such high level singles in this heat! Wowza!
We did see Robby Ginepri shown here:
Robby is a local boy...from the Atlanta area and was our hope a few years back. He made it as high as 15 in the rankings but has dropped to the 150s now. Sad...he did have a lot of potential. He was known for a while as being the boyfriend of Minnie Driver. I am a wealth of tennis knowledge! :)
Robby lost tonight...no big surprise...but he did have a good match.
The evening match pitted two American favorites together...the veteran James Blake who is well over 30!...and John Isner...the 6'9" giant who has the record for playing the longest match in history which was at Wimbledon last year...beating Mahut in over 11 hours!
Wow.... John Isner went to the University of Georgia and helped that school win a national championship so he was definitely a local favorite tonight although lots of people were rooting for James Blake.
Here's James Blake (such a GOOD LOOKING DUDE!):
and here is a photo of John Isner:
They sure gave us spectators a great match...Isner won it in a tiebreak in the 3rd set.
So...no paper crafting for me...but hopefully I'll get something cutesy posted soon!!!
Happy Crafting and Happy Tennis!
