Stan is the Man!

I'm so happy that Stan has finally won his first major!! I always knew he had it in him if he just really believed!! Dyahe lang na Nadal is making issue about his injury (parang si Serena, pag natalo, ay injured ako - di ba pwedeng, on that day, mas magaling lang talaga ang kalaban!) pero at least Nadal did not retire!!! He would've received a lot of hate tweet and hate posts in FB!! Even I would send him one!! Remember Justine Henin retiring against Amelie Mauresmo in 2006 ata? That really sucked and I think Henin lost a lot of fans that day, me included........

Grigor Dimitrov: Sexy Australian Open Quarterfinalist

Ohh lala!! Finally Grigor Dimitrov is in a grand slam quarterfinal and the first one is here in the Australian Open 2014.  Maria Sharapova, currently his squeeze, is pretty lucky huh!  I really think so!  He's definitely one of the lookers in the men's tour right now!

Eugenie Bouchard: Surprise Semifinalist Australian Open 2014

I have been hearing about Eugenie Bouchard of Canada for sometime now and to finally see her play today and defeating Ana Ivanovic shows that she's one of the new players to really watch out for in women's tennis.  I love the way she plays!  She's very aggressive and her groundstrokes are booming!  I would've loved to see her play Serena Williams, which is a distinct possibility in the future.  

Her ranking will surely rise after this grand slam, possibly in the top 20s.  I would love to see more of her in the slams in the future!

Treat Huey in the Quarterfinals of the 2014 Australian Open Men's Doubles!

I just learned now that Treat Huey, probably our country's best men's doubles tennis players, is in the quarterfinals of the men's doubles of the Australian Open!!  His partner is a Brit (Dom Inglot) and I think they've been playing for sometime now!

Anyway, they joined the KL Open last year, but they didn't go that deep (and I missed their matches kasi I should've stayed a full week!)  I'm pretty excited for them and they might even make the semi-finals because they have unseeded opponents!  Go Philippines!!
