More tennis news and misc…

World no. 1 Victoria Azarenka pulls out a victory over Angelique Kerber in Turkey by winning the third set 6-4.  She was broken when she first had an opportunity to serve out the set and had another racket smashing show of displeasure with herself.  She then came out and broke back against Kerber to win the third set and the match.  She showed a lot of emotion after willing herself to this comeback victory, holding up her index finger, signaling number 1.  Will be interesting to watch how this plays out with Serena in the mix along with Sharapova and Radwanska who are just now starting their match.

In NBS news, Kobe Bryant will miss the final two preseason games for the Lakers with a strained foot.

Later…

Sharapova and Radwanska are tied at a set a piece, each winning 7-5, Radwanska the first set, Sharapova the second.  Another match going the distance.  They are on serve in the 3rd and deciding set.

Tonight, World Series game number 1 from San Francisco.  Detroit (Verlander) vs. San Francisco (Zito)

Final; Sharapova wins third set 7-5, and the match.  Not really a huge Sharapova fan, just me.  Since I want to keep it positive, that will be enough said.  I like Radwanska and personally feel like current no. 1 Azarenka has more soul as I have blogged in previous post, Battle of the Screamers.  How is Serena Williams not number 1, won Wimbledon, U S Open and Olympic gold?  All boils down to the way the rankings are determined.  Not going to complain when it comes to the “boys”.  Want to see Federer finish at number 1.  Onto tomorrow’s action, enough said.
