US Open Series Update: 8/3/2010


Congrats to Victoria Azarenka on winning the 2010 Bank of the West Classic by defeating Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-1 in what should have been billed as “Screech-Fest 2010”; it was audibly horrific to listen to.  I ended up going outside in the middle of the first set to pull weeds as opposed to pulling my hair out.  Yes, it really was that annoying.  Good tennis, bad sound effects.

And, congrats to Sam Querry on defeating Andy Murray (who just happens to be the fourth ranked player in the world.  In. The. World.  Right behind number three ranked Roger Federer…) in the 2010 Farmers Classic.  Atta’ boy Sam.

Also, let’s everyone give a round of applause for Mike & Bob Bryan (drums & guitar and bass & keyboard, respectively) on winning their record-setting 62nd tournament.  Sixty-Friggin-Two.  That’s a whole-lotta-winnin goin on right there!  (Gotta Love it!)

Are you wondering how your favorite player(s) are doing in the US Open Series?  Wonder no more:
