Some tennis action…

The WTA Year End Finals are taking place in Istanbul, Turkey.  In today’s action Serena Williams defeated Li Na, 7-6, 6-3.  Currently, Kerber is up on Azarenka 7-6, 2-4, so after slamming her racket, Azarenka seems to be regrouping and perhaps on her way to winning the second set and evening the match.  Up later, Sharapova will face Agnieska Radwanska.  Radwanska defeated Kvitova in the first round, 6-3, 6-2 and then Kvitova withdrew today citing a sore throat and stomach issues.  She will be replaced by Sam Stosur.

In the Swiss Indoor Event in Basel, ALERT, Roger Federer is playing Thomas Bellucci.  Fed won the first set 6-3 but dropped the second set in a tie breaker 6-7.  They are all even at 3-3 in the third and deciding set.  This is noteworthy because Fed had a very difficult match with Bellucci at Wimbledon this year.  Here’s to hoping (and expecting) Fed to pull through.  Stay tuned…
