Serena: Athlete, Actor, Designer, Bunion Wrangler

Serena Williams today at provides us some of the best guerrilla sports marketing on the web I’ve seen.

In an ad masquerading as a blog post, Serena chronicles her first day as a student at a Nail Tech school:
No one likes getting their nails done more than I do. As a matter of fact […]


Woz Next? Sublime Caroline Belongs In SI Swimsuit

If you read SbB regularly you know of my affection for Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki:

She broke through in her tennis career last summer, making the finals of the U.S. Open.

(Oh. My. GOD.)
She’s also rapidly becoming the most popular hottie in pro sports. (Danica? She’s yours.) In other words, I’m a little flummoxed SPORTS ILLUSTRATED […]


Video: Andy Murray Loses To Federer, Then Cries

Andy Murray crying after losing to Roger Federer in the Australian Open Final:

“I can cry like Roger. It’s just a shame I can’t play like him.“
Dude was shaking for crying out loud. Now I know where we got breaking down our heroes.


Serena Mom Would Wally Pipp a Hag Off The View

I’m flagging this interview of the mother of the Williams sisters, Oracene, for those network execs in charge of casting The View.

Venus and Serena’s mom, much to the delight of Richard Deitsch of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, gave a soft-tossing Aussie interviewer last week an earful during a visit at the Australian Open players party. I […]


Roddick, Brooklyn Decker Animals For Public Sex

Here’s some video, from the MELBOURNE HERALD-SUN, of a sexually-charged public appearance by Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker in Australia earlier today.

(Love the “WARNING: KOALA SEX” from Herald-Sun editorial)
Comes as no surprise that Roddick, not Decker, “took considerably more convincing to tentatively touch a very large python.“


Serena Williams Topless Pic: Surf-Up, Top-Down

Serena Williams, who recently received a slap on the wrist $82,500 fine after threatening to kill a foot fault judge at the U.S. Open last summer, is current vacationing in Barbados. (Williams made $700,000 in earnings from that tournament alone.)

Williams was sighted body-boarding by a long-lensed paparrazo when a wardrobe malfunction ocurred.


L.A. Photo: Sharapova And Vujacic Holding Hands

As I first told you last Wednesday afternoon, Sasha Vujacic and Maria Sharapova are now “dating”, and has a photo of them yesterday holding hands in Los Angeles.

Very strange to see a L.A. Laker showing genuine affection for a female when reality show producer Ryan Seacrest hasn’t scheduled the cameras to be trained on […]


Caroline Wozniacki’s Bikini Led Paparazzi Where?!

What happens when you’re an attractive Danish woman who reaches the U.S. Open as a relative unknown?

If you’re Caroline Wozniacki, you suddenly have paparazzi staking you out in far-flung locations like the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.

The occasion was a girls-only holiday with her teenage friend Angelique Keber and sisters Urszula and Agnieszka, reported by […]


Yes, Agassi Tanked: ‘Losing on purpose isn’t easy’

Thank god for Rick Reilly. In a blog post for ESPN THE MAG, it appears he’s shaken out all the interesting bits from Andre Agassi’s new book Open. The topper, at least to me, is Agassi admitting that he lost matches on purpose. But almost as perplexing as Agassi fully admitting that he tanked on […]


Sources “Confirm” Sharapova Is “Seeing” Vujacic

Lakers beat reporter Kevin Ding of the ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER confirmed last night what I told you yesterday afternoon. Maria Sharapova is dating Sasha Vujacic of the Lakers:
“Other sources confirmed the Manhattan Beach neighbors have been seeing each other.”

Ding and L.A. DAILY NEWS reporter Eliot Teaford asked Vujacic about the relationship, which reportedly included […]
