It has just been announced that this coming February’s BNP Paribas Showdown at Madison Square Garden — in 2010 an event contested by Venus, Ana Ivanovic, Kim Clijsters, and Sveta Kuznetsova — will this time feature Agassi, Sampras, Lendl, and McEnroe in a renewal of their classic rivalries.
John and Ivan will play a one-set pro match (first to eight) and the Agassi/Sampras matchup will be a best-of-three. TSF’s curious to see how the latter will pan out, especially in light of Andre’s malfunction at Indian Wells this year. (Hey, if Kournikova and Hingis can kiss and make up, why can’t these two?)
But not to take away from the event’s a noble cause: to bring awareness to our sport through the “Tennis Night in America” initiative, a collaboration between BNP Paribas and the USTA.
Info: For more info about the event, to be held on February 28, 2011, visit tennisshowdown.com.
The 2010 Wimbledon women’s semifinals now set: it’s Serena against Kvitova and Zvonareva (d. Clijsters!) against Pironkova (d. Venus!!!!!!!!!!!).
I once thought about bedazzling a band-aid to put on my eyebrow (after I took out a piercing). I never went through with it, but Serena’s nails are making me think about the lack of Swarovski in my home medical kit.
