John Isner wins 2nd consecutive Atlanta Open

John Isner won his second consecutive Atlanta Open Championship today (that would be the BB&T Open) defeating Dudi Sela of Israel, 6-3, 6-4.  Kudos to both these guys, it is a SCORCHER of a day in the ATL.  This is the first of ten US Open series tournaments, it is held at Atlantic Station in Midtown…a pretty cool place actually.  John hails from Winston-Salem, NC but played his college tennis in Athens at UGA (I am a GT fan but that is OK!, go John) and now he lives in Tampa, FL.  Nice win for Isner.  But let’s get right to it…what we are all really waiting for is the Rodgers Cup in Toronto, followed by the tournament in Cincy where Mr. Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray will all be in attendance.  Then…drum roll please..the final Slam of the year…The US Open from Flushing Meadow in NYC.  All to come…starting August 2nd and continuing through until the men’s final in NYC on Monday, September 8th.  Then we move to indoor tennis (Mr. Federer’s specialty) to finish out the year leading to the Year End Finals in London!

So, watched The Internship (for the third time?) today on HBO on a lazy, hot Sunday afternoon.  Really love Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson together.  They are such a great duo, and I love this movie.  It has such a good message…don’t give up on your dream(s)… and it has laughter and tears..what could be better?

On LMN at 6:00 pm EST a movie called The Trials of Cate McCall will air today.  It stars Kate Beckinsale and Clancy Brown.  I am intrigued.  Don’t know if it was meant to be a Lifetime Movie or was originally meant for the big screen.  First I have heard of it but I am going to check it out!!

Tonight Unforgettable on CBS at 9:00 pm EST.  Love Poppy Montgomery and Dylan Walsh together!  Also, MLB game of the week…ESPN at 8:00 pm EST, San Francisco vs. LA Dodgers (in LA)…battle of California.  Oh, how I love California!!  Wish I was there!

Until tomorrow..enjoy your Sunday night!
