US Open tennis

Holy shit, did anbody see what Sharapova was wearing today? Black sparkly dress, make-up, dangly earrings. Give her a pair of shoes (other than Nikes) and she could have stepped out on the town.

Damn!!!!

I do distinctly recall thinking that her shoes (white and a little beat) did not fit with her dress.

I think she's incredibly hot... emphasis on the hot.

The interviewer after the match told the gorgeous Maria that the dress was flattering and asked her if she'd be wearing it again. My potential future girlfriend replied yes, if she had another night match. So, no sequins in the daytime for her.

I don't get it. She's just a plain-faced Russian girl. I mean, she's not ugly, but I see better looking women every single day on the street. Same with Kournikova - she may have been good looking for tennis, but come on.

And her shoulders are too square.

Each to their own I guess. I thought she looked great and, unlike most models/actresses, she is singularly talented, an attractive quality I find.

I feel for Baghdatis, but wow, what a win for Agassi.
post #10 of 46
great match! Hopefully Agassi will make a run a la Jimmy Connors at the 1991 Open. I still remember that match with Connors and Paul Haarhuis as one of the best I've seen.

I tried to go to bed while the match was still going - I thought Agassi had lost it - but my eyes kept snapping open, so back to the TV I went.

Great match - Baghdatis seemed to suffer with the cramps toward the end, but still made a match of it. Glad I stayed up for it.

I missed the match but it sounds like another entry for the Agassi classic file.

I though Baghdatis was particularly graceful in his post match comments.

He's more than a legend. He gave so much to the tour."

Well, they've been trying to replace Kournikova for a while... she is much hotter than Sharipova, whose face is nothing special. Her body (like many others on the WTA) is out of this world, and she's a very good player too.

Personally I don't like watching women's tennis that much until semis or quarter finals, because the depth is just not there. Most of the time it's a top 20 girl just bulldozing her opponent for like 40 minutes.

I saw a bit of the Agassi match, I was out having some drinks. Apparently it's a well known fact on the tour that Andre's conditioning is second to none. He seems to thrive on these long matches because he can readily outlast his opponent. My friend and I watched his match with Pavel (who is an incredible player, amazing backhand), and after he won he looked like he was ready for another set, while Pavel had been sucking air the whole time.

I want to see Agassi do well, but if he doesn't do it, I'm rooting for James Blake to really break out and win the whole thing. Plus, you have to love him for his willingness to pay tribute to Agassi by wearing the tribute outfit.

post #15 of 46
wow, I was getting a bit teary eyed watching Agassi's final moments. I couldnt stand him when he first came on the scene in the mid 80s and even through most of the 90s, but over the past 8 or 9 years I've definitely learned to respect him as a player and he's seems like a pretty swell guy off court as well. I know I'll miss seeing his name in tournament draws from now on.
