trophy watch: how sweet-ing it is

April 11, 2011

Sweet success: American Ryan Sweeting won his first-ever ATP title yesterday, capping a great week in Houston by beating Kei Nishikori in the final of the U.S. Men’s Claycourt Championships, 6-4, 7-6 (3). After his victory, Sweet took a little celebratory swim.

Moving up: Sweeting’s win vaults him from no. 93 in the world to no. 67, the biggest leap of any top 100 player this week.

Chasing Charleston: While defending champ Samantha Stosur continued to sputter, world no. 1 Caroline Wozniacki had a solid week, including a this-should-be-the-final win over former world no. 1 Jelena Jankovic in the semis. Woz actually took out Russian Elena Vesnina in the title match, winning 6-2, 6-3 for the green clay vcitory.

After the cut: Vika wins in Spain and a Spaniard takes Casablanca. (more…)

focus: yanina wickymayer’s pink balls

April 11, 2011

Nothing too crazy about the pink/white Erke kit on Yanina Wickmayer this year. She’s worn both a tank and a short-sleeved top, and in the last month switched up her black drop earrings for these huge pink balls. Fun times.

Tennis: Yanina’s ranked 23rd on the WTA list, buoyed by a trip to the final of the ASB Classic, a semifinal appearance at Indian Wells, and making the quarters of the Open GDF Suez and last week’s Family Circle Cup.
