Backhands and Compliments – WTA Edition








Is anybody NOT ready for a week off?

Kimiko Date Krumm qualified for Cincy, fell in the tub and hurt her hand. Venus Williams got a virus. Kim Clijsters hurt her stomach. Victoria Azarenka hurt her hand, too. Bethanie Mattek-Sands is rehabbing her shoulder. Serena Williams stubbed her toe. Caroline Wozniacki broke her daddy’s heart. Peng Shuai hurt her hip. Andrea Petkovic hurt her knee. And Novak Djokovic must have hurt Maria Sharapova’s ego a bit when he spoofed her ad (instead of all this strong is beautiful, why doesn’t the tennis world try humor in ads for a change? Just saying). And just listening to Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf read from that made up children’s book during their new ad hurt my ears.

And to add insult to injury, we had to sit through the Sharapova/Jelena Jankovic final.

Is there anything else to say? Instead, I’m going to fantasize about 100 calorie cookies, specifically the new triple double oreo. I think Venus should bronze them and market them as earrings from Eleven’s accessory line.
