Aus Open 2016: Fashion Run Afoul Down Under

In Andreas Seppi, Australian Open on January 17, 2016 at 11:36 pm

Hey all you Realz Fanz, I am sure you are excited about the beginning of the 2016 major season which gets under way with the Australian Open in Melbourne. I am kinda excited though I am not keyed up as I would have been in recent years. I have long accepted the fact that Roger Federer and Venus Williams, my TOP FAVES are not going to win slams … well unlikely to win. However,  I am looking forward to seeing some brilliant and inspiring tennis on court during the next two weeks. 

As always myself and the lovely ladies in Andreen (@A_Gallivant) and Janina (@JLR78) break down both the men and women’s draws. You can take a listen below either on YouTube or on Podbean. 

On Podbean as well

However, the reason for this post is not to discuss tennis per se but to really get into the fashion of the tennis players. Now seriously, I have been following professional tennis for a LONG LONG LONG time and for the life of me, I do not understand how rich young people with amazing bodies commit so many acts of fashion suicide. These young rich folks appear to be have been styled by the Fashion Institute for the Blind or their worst enemy. In my mind, I think at times, it has to be that they are deliberately looking ridiculous so as to piss me off.

Anyway, the players, a select group I imagine, went to the IMG players’ party and it was a virtual shit show in this fashion. As always, I am right there to hand out grades and constructive criticism. I truly pray that these folks would consult me before going out ever again. 

When it comes to the menz, I really cannot give them a grade. It is so easy for them to be honest. I only give out grades if they are absolutely horrendous. 

I'm done talking about Kei and his teeth. He needs to take a million of that $60+ million from Uniqlo and get them chompers in order. This is UNACCEPTABLE

Did they all shop at the same place. I cannot even look at Harrison and them grandfather shoes. No need to ask, we all know Ryan is heading to the same frat party

Apparently, Heather is just one of the guys. I don't understand what's happening here. This has to be the "before picture" and we have to wait for the "after picture" when she is ready.

Divadal, your personality is supposed to be whimsical and not your hair. Surely, it is time to talk to your doctors about Rogaine or whatever else is new in the men's hair loss treatment department.

I was ready to rip into Kyle here but then I realized that I never see him at these events. Astronauts (players on the satellite and challenger circuits) don't get invited to these premiere events.  So he gets a pass as this was clearly his first time and he surely is the guest of a guest. Kyle, I won't be so kind next time.

David Ferrer looks all right! He doesn't look bad but it is a very safe choice. I cannot hate on him too much here at all.

Clearly someone did not explain to Seppi that this players' event was not being held in the locker room. And they say Italians have great fashion sense!

Look at the French showing you how it is done! #HubertforHusband He just exudes absolute charm and quiet sex appeal.

Of course it goes without saying that my main man Samuel Groth knows how to impress at outings. I never let my man go out looking like a mess. Meanwhile that lil hussy Josh Gibson was trying to angle in on my property but I had to let him know that Sam Space is already occupied #backoffbitch

For once she isn't accentuating her "manish" shoulders. This outfit I think works very well. The colours, the length, her hair and makeup are #flawless. Maria you get an A+

Meanwhile, is this a silent protest from the Russian again her motherland's draconian homophobic laws. I see her dress and all I am thinking about is marriage equality.

Apparently, in her post career life, LiNaLi is the WTA secretary? Why gurl? WHY?? That red lipstick is too RED, you're looking clownish and you need some powder for your face as it is too shiny or sweaty but I am gonna say "shiny". That skirt length needs to be CHOPPED. Show those legs. Unbutton one of those buttons on the blouse and let that hair down. Those shoes aren't right but I am going to give you a C+ because you are somebody's mother now.

This outfit clearly deserves an A if only we were talking about tennis kit. But as it is an evening wear, I'm gonna have to give this a D-. It fits but it certainly doesn't flatter

Victoria "Vika" Azarenka. What in the name of fashion is this fucking mess? You look RIDICULOUS. I cannot even give you an F. That's too high a grade for this shit.

WTF? WTMFF is this garbage. She looks like she cut up some eccentric nurses' scrubs and added the belt and the shoes thinking the ensemble would look cute. Azarenka, honey, YOU LOOK BAD. You get an H for Horrendous

A funny thing happened to Serena on her way to the players' party. She misheard and thought it was a "dance party". She looks ready to drop it like it's hot. Serena you know I am going to have to get on your for that weave/wig and them eyebushes gurl. We need to do better boo!!

Madison apparently is apparently locked up in fashion hell and don't have a clue or keys to get out. This looks so bad, I think Vika looks better. Them shoes are WRONG, murdering her toes and sweety what is going on with the dress? The colour, the form, the fit, your breasts are hanging out. Why? WHY?

Someone couldn't give you some make up to fix this. How you checked yourself in a mirror and thought it was all okay to go out like this? I have no choice for to give this an F for a fucking fail

So BMS didn't have time to change as practice and just showed up like this after getting off the courts.

Everything is nice but somehow it just does not work for me overall. Her hair is right, dress form its colour and everything are great. However, she just looks off in it altogether like it does not belong to her.

I am not sure about it. Cute top but those pants do not work. This needed a skirt or a different top. Either way, doesn't really work for me and Svitolina, you get a C-

I really need someone to explain to me why is it that the Spanish men ALWAYS look right but the ladies ALWAYS look a right mess. Why is Garbine wearing this shit in public? I don't even know where to begin

I don’t even know where to begin .. First the hair looks like it was just washed with supermarket shampoo; that makeup isn’t flattering; that blouse is for a child not a grown woman: those pants … I think you would find that her grandmother’s couch is missing fabric as it is now her pants: her sandals … #icant

She was doing everything right until she decided to follow her hubby and match him with the white shoes. Why? Why? And I am going to pretend like I am not seeing that purse at all.

The USTA Responds to Genie Bouchard’s Lawsuit!!!

In Eugenie Bouchard on November 16, 2015 at 11:53 am

So thanks to the LOVELY Bridgepea (@bridgepea on Twitter) Karen, we were able to get the USTA’s response to Genie’s lawsuit …. You know how we strive to give you complete and controversial REALZ NEWZ!!!

juicy

You can check out the document in full in the link below or check out the images of the document below that. This document had me gagging! I mean who knew lawsuits and tennis can combined to give you hilarity. The folks in tennis NEVER leave us with a single dull moment. I have given you my non-legal expertise take on the document in BLUE!

00483970

sdsa

PAGE 1: This is not our fault! All we are going to admit to is the fact that she was there at the 2015 US Open in singles, doubles and mixed doubles and subsequently pulled out of the event. We have nothing to do with her entering a 4th event, “Fucking around in a physio room and allegedly getting hurt!” 

2

PAGE 2: Even if we are at fault, she is definitely not getting more than $75k! Any notion of damages being in the millions is RIDICULOUS

We are totally feeling ourselves with this lawsuit

We are totally feeling ourselves with this lawsuit

 

3

PAGE 3: Before we go any further, let me just clarify that Ms. Bouchard was not RANKED 25 in the world, she was SEEDED 25 at the US Open. Just a point of order okay! She said that she could have won the US Open and done well at the US Open had she not been injured, well that is all very “speculative” and we are gonna need a receipt for such claims. Her subsequent results at the Japan and China Open were no different from her previous results before the US Open ie. she wasn’t winning shit. Furthermore, she did not finish her doubles match with Nicholas K at 10 pm. Someone needs to buy this girl a watch because we do not have time for her bullshit

She was going to win the US Open? Gurl bye ...

She was going to win the US Open? Gurl bye …

4

PAGE 4: We don’t know what “tiled floor” she is talking about and furthermore, she had no business in this room to begin with as she did no business in there at the time

THIS TEA GONNA BE SO GOOD

5

PAGE 5: We are only going to admit insomuch as to say that Ms. Bouchard withdrew on September 5, 2015, as to why, we don’t know. Also when she is saying that her ranking points have dropped as a result of this “alleged incident” at the US Open, we are again going to need receipt for that because we are not responsible for her poor 2015

6

PAGE 6: Blah! Blah! Blah! Legal speak

7

PAGE 7: Even if what she is saying is even remotely true, Ms. Bouchard is an experienced professional player and she knows better. We should not be held responsibility for her own stupi… I mean her own negligence! Do we have to quote Sergei Stakhovsky here to get our point across?? 

I am just saying ...

I’m just saying … What was she really doing at this time? That’s what we really want to know

8

PAGE 8: Whatever she is saying in paragraphs 34-41 are all a bunch of lies! Paragraph 42 is just her telling the same lie as in paragraph 41

9

PAGE 9: Blah! Blah! Blah! Legal speak. This is us clarifying the ownership of the USTA spaces etc etc

10

PAGE 10: Again, Ms. Bouchard has been to the US Open before and we are confused, conflicted and concerned as to how and why she doesn’t know how things work around here. And also, everything she says in paragraphs 52-56 are LIES

11

PAGE 11: She is still telling lies from paragraphs 57-60! And we would like Ms. Bouchard to know that we are ready, willing and able to go to court on this matter. We are not settling this nonsense of a claim. It is our contention that she should have known better and whatever happened to her is her fault and her fault alone.

We are ready for a court date because we are snatching wigs out here

We are ready for a court date because we are snatching wigs out here

12

PAGE 12: She did not follow the rules and so she got hurt. Again this is not our fault. She knew better

13

PAGE 13: If we are at all culpable for any damages it certainly is not in the millions and we do not know what this mystery substance on the floor is/was because we don’t think it ever existed. Also that room is NEVER dark. So she can’t walk and can’t see? Ms. Bouchard therefore needs to familiarize herself with the Disability Procedure at the tournament and notify us of such fact. We contend that she did not do so at all as we have no record of such matter. 

14

PAGE 14: More importantly is the fact that Ms. Bouchard when she was so called injured, she refused medical assistant at the site and went home. She claimed to be injured but when you looked at her social media, (we have screenshots etc), it is completely different. So we don’t know how she could have “on-going and permanent physical injuries” because her Twitter says she is okay! Must we go on with this nonsense? That is not how folks with concussion act after the fact

giphy (4)

15

PAGE 15: She wants punitive damages but her documents do not say how and why she should get any. We are not paying this girl any kind of millions of dollars. We have a brand new roof and stadiums to build gaddamit.

 

 

16

PAGE 16: Thank you very much. I think we have just won this case. PS One more thing! We will not be paying her any millions of dollars. In fact she owes us millions of dollars because she did not take care of Roberta Vinci who got a bye into the quarters and thus was able to take out in the semifinal Serena Williams who was our real money maker. This caused a massive loss of revenue because ain’t nobody had time for that all-Italian final. It was all about the #SerenaCalendarSlam.Therefore, we will be submitting documents soon seeking damages from Ms. Bouchard regarding that matter.

That's all for now

That’s all for now

We CANNOT WAIT for the trial! It will be EN FIRE!!!

Realz Fashion Review: WTA Pre-Wimbledon 2015 Party

In Wimbledon on June 29, 2015 at 1:19 am

I love me some Wimbledon because it is the time of year when the female athletes attempt to dress up and be ladies. Now do not misunderstand me, I am not implying any gender distortion for the women. No, I am just saying that the ladies of WTA always try to be “girly girls” and it ALWAYS give us spectacular results!!! And you know that Realz is here to bring you all the photos with the realz deal. I think most of the ladies would benefit greatly from a gay in their life because their fashion sense is no where near as being en par with their tennis ability at all. 

I cannot believe this but JJ is BEST DRESSED She captures everything right here! Youthful, sexy, maturity, form, fit, hair, makeup, shoes AND no purse because she's so fucking hot, she's not buying any drinks tonight! Drinks will be bought for her!! A+++

Heather Watson - Grade A: Colour, style work well for her. The hair en pointe and the shoes as well. Slight critique is that the sock tan line and the dress a tad bit too short. However that's me kit picking.

Genie - Grade: B- I am being very generous here because this dress is TOO LONG and not form fitting enough. What is worse is that Genie swears she is killing it. However, that dress is killing her.

Now I have a lot to say about Anastasia Pavyluchenkova in this outfit and much it might not be so nice BUT Ana Pav has improved over last year's effort and heeded my advice from last year because I went IN!! So she get's a Solid B! The hair and shoes are en pointe!

So she get’s a Solid B! The hair and is en pointe! Gurl  I think those shoes a tad bit small for you. Your toes sweeping the carpet

This is Ana Pav from last year 2014! She was begging for me to unleash the kracken to come her in this hot mess.

Lucie Safarova …. Unfortunately the internet cannot see the look of utter disappointment I am giving you right now… Those shoes are HORRID and we spoke at length about that lipstick not being for you …But because of the dress you get a B-

asdas

Karolina Pliskova … I give her an E for Effort but she looks like she borrowed a friend’s clothing. The shoes look cute. I am gonna need you to do better

asdasd

This is just utterly unacceptable from Serena! You got money and you sell clothing. This shit is just BASIC!!! This looks like something one of the poorer girls would wear to play a tournament. I wouldn’t have mind so much if she had jazz it up with a belt or something but this is SO BORING despite the shoes. Serena I give you an S for Salvation Army because that is where you got this dress. #GurlBye!!

asdas

Carla! Carla! Carla! I guess I should be happy that Carla put into some major effort or more rightly so, someone else put in a lot of effort for her BUT the stockings and kitten heels are just LOW CLASS! She looks like she’s going to Sunday church service and this party was held on a Thursday! NO!! Gurl this ain’t cute at all. Grade C+ for the wonderful dress and hair. I cannot overlook below the knees

adsads

Madison I want you to take this dress and lock it up and through away the keys. A little voice in your head didn’t say NO gurl this is a mess? This would have been so hot if all this black sheer fabric wasn’t on the dress. If you’re going to go sexy go sexy.  You cannot be bi-polar about it. This dress is giving me hot and cold at the same time and therefore you get a C-

asdas

That’s right Urszula, you cannot wow us with your tennis on court so you wow us off court. I get you with that but gurl your feet look like they are in torturous pain. I  really want to dislike the dress as I think it is basic and you could have done better but I have to respect your attempt and give you a B- for you do look good if we are not watching your feet. 

asdas

Simona I wanted to hate this dress but I remember some of your previous efforts so I am happy you stepped up your game but kept it modest just the same. So I going to give you an A- because everything looks nice and tight. However, let me just say spray tan for those feet. Not cute at all 

Emak-WTA-41810e

Simona’s previous efforts looking like childish

WTA+Pre+Wimbledon+Party+mKkDIdQ1Sc-l

It is like when Victoria got dressed this night, she thought, “How can I piss off Realz?” Who the hell is her stylist, Helen Keller? This shit is ATROCIOUS!! The only positive I can draw form this is that her hair looks clean and her toes pedicured. Everything else is just horrid. A huge F!!!! Them shoes?? Arghhhh #Icant

WTA+Pre+Wimbledon+Party+qCI8zuwsIC4l

Christina McHale, this is a definite McFail! You look like someone’s mother and how dare you go out with them feet. You don’t even get points for effort because you did not even try here at all. No. You get a Grade G for #GirlBye

Vitalia Diatchenko

Vitalia Diatchenko … I am not feeling the hair looking like the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz. However, the dress is a nice fit. I am not feeling them shoes though. I’ll give her a B.

Maria

I don’t understand why these rich girls are looking like they shopping at the thrift shops. However, Maria is going a step further. At the French Open, she gave us sailor with the blue and white stripes and keeping this nautical theme going she gives us “Sharapova Sells Seashells by the Seashore!” It is as though one of Ariel’s sisters came ashore for the party. I cannot hate on the them shoes though! They are magnificent. Grade C- for that dress. She can do better!

Zheng Saisai

Zheng Saisai, I want to like this outfit but somehow those white gym socks with the black kitten heel shoes is just too much for me. I am gonna have to give this a D for just being Dumb

Zarina Diyas is looking very nice in this dress and the hair looks good too. However, those shoes look like throwaways. No bueno!! She gets a B-

Garbine

Those exciting shoes do not go with this very boring red dress and that lipstick again is not for you. The whole ensemble looks like something for a much older woman. You get a C- for this

Sabine

Sabine is posing and working it all. However, I am not feeling this hair but Sabine has that look us … I am about to get TURNED UP!!!

Laura

Laura Robson was stepped her game up! This might seem a tad bit mature for her but she wears it well. The hair and the shoes are EN POINTE. The red dress is stylish and flattering. Meanwhile, not sure what that woman in the background is wearing … those shoes are killing me.

Ana

Ana isn’t carrying a purse this evening … She brought her man. The only lady at the event I think who brought a date … and check out the rock

WTA+Pre+Wimbledon+Party+v-pU0w_ai90l

Ana gets a solid A!! I am not in love with the shoe style though the colour is right and the mid section of this dress not so flattering … but the hair and make up and her confidence definitely ROCK

WTA+Pre+Wimbledon+Party+Dr_zpseO3tIl

Apparently Petra thought it was appropriate to wear her man’s T-shirt to this event. Those shoes … this is not even worthy of a grade because it is just unacceptable

I am so disappointed with Daniela right now. Usually she is en pointe but her make up is bad and she’s wearing the hotel’s drapes thinking she looks cute. She look a hot mess as though she was playing dress up with lil kids. She gets a G Grade for Ghastly Garbage. I cannot believe she made my list as my #3

French Open 2015 Day 3: Bouchard Bounced and Grigor is Gone

In French Open, Grand Slam on May 28, 2015 at 4:15 pm
Y'all know I am all about the struggle on the tennis courts!

Y’all know I am all about the struggle on the tennis courts! My name is Petra and if it ain’t grass, I’m playing the ass 

Well on things were as I predicted for this tournament, a HOT MESS. Absolutely no surprise some of this mess is coming from Petra Kvitova (4). Kvitova found herself up against Marina Erakovic who is capable of being a decent player but you know how these wenches usually are; mucking about in the trenches, not interested in winning but seemed more keen on the players’ parties than the tennis. Anyway, Erakovic was playing some solid tennis. Petra just barely got out of the 1st set 6-4 and in the 2nd set, Erakovic took it 6-3. In the 3rd set, it was a virtual tossup as Petra was sucking and swinging as only she can. One might a stupendous winner and then next a stupid error. She is lucky that Erakovic was not someone a little more experienced because she would have had to bid “Adieu” to this event. She got through 6-4 3-6 6-4.

Serenanator looks poised and ready to get her 3rd French Open title

Serenanator looks poised and ready to get her 3rd French Open title

Serena (1) and her bff Caroline Wozniacki (5) both moved through comfortably to the next round. Serena took out Andrea Hlavackova 6-2 6-3. She looked clean and very efficient on court. There were no careless errors and she was very deliberate about her actions. This was far better than her 1st round effort last year when she committed near 40+ errors and won I think 6-1 6-2. It was a mess. Anyway, Woz had a lil hiccup with Karin Knapp in the beginning of the match but calm that potential storm with a 6-3 6-0 scoreline. It might be that Knapp was exhausted having just won Nuremberg last Saturday because it is as though she fell asleep in that match. But ain’t nobody got time for that here in Paris.

Knapp was such a mess

Knapp was such a mess

Sveta Kuzi (18) a darkhorse pick to take this tournament, which she won back in 2009, found herself in a spot of bother as she was battling it out with the likes of Kiki Bertens. See this is why Kuzi is not being featured in major events. She got past KiKi though in 3 sets 6-1 4-6 6-2. She will face another former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone who had fight hard to get to the 2nd round against Qiang Wang 3-6 6-3 6-4.

Kuzi might be lifting a 2nd Roland Garros trophy

Kuzi might be lifting a 2nd Roland Garros trophy

Other winners include Andrea Petkovic (10), Madison Keys (16), Timea Bacsinszky and Zarina Diyas (32). Julia Goerges also won over American Coco Vandeweghe as did Belinda Bencic over Daniela Hantuchova. Americans were not so lucky as both Christina McHale and Taylor Townsend were bounced from the tournament. I need not tell you that McHale was in a winning position but then decided that it might be prudent to be McFail and throw away the match. You know how Christina can be; almost allergic to winning.

Marina gurl this is just not a cute look at all for you!!

Marina gurl this is just not a cute look at all for you!!

Madison, you should be making this face ever ...

Madison, you should be making this face ever ...

Now I know I might cause a bit of controversy here but Taylor is putting on back the weight that she lost recently. She is coming off an injury and it near looked as though she sat around all day and eat. Really I am not even kidding you. She has decided to go back to her old coach, Donald Young’s father and I really wish that she did not. It is clear that the Youngs are amazing junior coaches and this is where they should stick to. However, they have no not even the slightest propensity to be able to help a player manage and map out a career on the professional level. I daresay that this is a “retarded” move on the part of Taylor. I know she feels that she needs to be comfortable but it is clear that she cannot bear the weight of comfort. She needs near hardcore discipline and quite frankly, she needs to drop that weight.

This is Taylor last year August

But moving on. Irina Falconi made it through to the 2nd round which is good because I hardly hear of her as of late. The big news of the day were the dismissal of Genie Bouchard (6) and Jelena Jankovic (25). Now really and truly I hardly see these matches as upsets as no one really expected either of these players were really expected to do much at this tournament. In fact, no one is really expecting them to do anything for the rest of the year. Anyway, Bouchard faced Kristina Mladenovic. Mladenovic had the home crowd behind her and she pressed this advantage as she took the opening set 6-4. In the 2nd set, she raced to a 5-0 lead but being French and all, she allowed Bouchard back into the match. Bouchard broke Mladenovic twice as she served for the match. However, on the 3rd try, Mladenovic was about to close out the match 6-4 6-4. Jankovic too did not win a set against her opponent Sesil Karatantcheva 6-3 6-4. Sesil barely was able to close out the match but she did got the win. 

Au revoir Bouchard

Au revoir Bouchard

So that is it for the ladies, on the menz side, there was hardly any bother to be honest, at least in my estimation. This was the day that both Divadal (2) and Djoker (1) were to play their 1 round matches and they did not disappoint. Divadal took out a HOT FRENCHMAN Quentin Halys (He is definitely on my TO-DO list) 6-3 6-3 6-4. I swear the commentators are out like vicious vultures. They are hoping that Divadal loses this year because that would be the big story in tennis for the entire year. They have something to write about etc. It did not occur to them that maybe a different narrative was cute within the last ten years at the French Open.

Divadal and Quentin Halys

What are you saying? You no like my Smurf Suit?

Djoker looked the same as always. He played Jarkko Nieminen and for a minute you know that Djoker went away for a spell and then returned. Jarkko served for the 2nd set but apparently that was too much to ask for and Djoker took it 6-2 7-5 6-2. Also looking very impressive is David Ferrer (7) the 2013 finalist here. He beat or more to the point beat up Lukas Lacko 6-1 6-3 6-1. Richard Gasquet (20), Marin Cilic (9), John Isner (16) and Kevin Anderson (15) all won in straight sets. Jeremy Chardy did it for the home crowd and pull through in 4 sets as did Jerzy Janowicz I think and Pablo Carreno-Busta. Nico Almagro overcame a “tough” match again Aleksandr Dolgopolov and will face Divadal in the 2nd round. Now I did not want Divadal to face a Spaniard in this tournament because they ALWAYS bend over sideways and let him fuck them in the butt. But it does not matter either way, Divadal is still the man to beat here at this tournament.

Jarkko you're not upsetting my programme this year at all

Jarkko you’re not upsetting my programme this year at all

The most “shocking” result of the day on the men’s side is that Grigor Dimitrov (10) has once again failed to get out of the 1st round at the French Open. He faced American Jock Sock and it was a near beatdown. Grigor started off well enough if I am not mistaken, earning himself an early break but after losing that break and eventual the set in the breaker. By dropping that set, Dimitrov’s level also dropped. He was being outplayed from every angle of the work and it was very clear to all who were watching that he did not have an ounce of match strategy or wisdom to call upon to help him out of this difficult situation. Sock was near breaking Dimitrov at will. He took the match 7-6 6-2 6-3.

You need to go ....

You need to go ….

Yeah I am going ...

Yeah I am going …

Yeah pack your shit up and get the fuck outta here

Yeah pack your shit up and get the fuck outta here

And while we are on the subject of Grigor Dimitrov, can I just say that it is time that we stop referring him to him as “Baby Federer”! This needs to stop IMMEDIATELY! Not only is this putting unearned status on the young Bulgarian, but it is also putting undue pressure on him. The kid is drowning under this sea of pressure to perform. He clearly is not capable and up that level. And honestly, the only thing he and Federer have in common other than a penis, is the one handed backhand but so does and Nico Almagro and I am not hearing people calling Nico, Baby anything. So let it be known, the only time people can say “Baby Federer” they best be meaning the 4, double twins, Myla-Rose, Charlene, Leo and Lenny that he and Mirka produced.  

These are Federer's babies Leo and Lenny

2015 Australian Open: Day 7 and 8 The Rounds of 16s

In Uncategorized on January 30, 2015 at 11:06 pm
The Aussie Open in the outback??

The Aussie Open in the outback??

Day 7 and Day 8 saw the completion of the entire round of 16 matches. All 16 matches; 8 on the women’s side and 8 on the men’s, were seen on court resulting in the draw finally being in the business end of the tournament: The quarterfinals then semis and finally the final. It is amazing how quickly these two weeks have passed and we are now down to so few players. We had 256 players in the singles draw last Sunday/Monday. Now we are down to 16 after the completion of these two days play.

Let us deal with the women’s:

Genie gurl, we have to put all of this in a bottle and never let it out. We can do better!!!

Genie gurl, we have to put all of this in a bottle and never let it out. We can do better!!!

On Day 7, the bottom half played. Bouchard (7) took on Irina-Camelia Begu and was in dominant fashion having taken the 1st set 6-1 and breaks up in the 2nd. However, she lost her way and allowed Begu back into the match. Begu did not hesitate to take the 2nd 7-5 and forced a 3rd set. Well as she noted after the match, Bouchard went to the bathroom and had a conversation with herself in the mirror, “Genie this is unacceptable!” The Canadian got her life together and took the decisive set and the match 6-1 5-7 6-2. She is through to her 2nd straight Aussie Open quarterfinals. Her opponent, Martha Shriekapova (2) had an easy time against the soft hitting Chinese player, Shuai Peng (21). Peng was merely giving Martha a light practice out on court. She really could do nothing to hurt the Russian in the least. Martha did everything better and it showed as Martha took the match 6-3 6-0.

I got no time for these extras and wenches! I am coming for the Aussie Open crown

I got no time for these extras and wenches! I am coming for the Aussie Open crown

Another Russian who had an easy time of her opponent was Ekaterina Makarova who played Julia Goerges. It was clear that the German was going to be in a lot of trouble against the Russian. First off, Goerges was further in this tournament that she really had a right to be. She has not been in situations like this in a long time and her mental shortcomings have been well documented. Makarova was all over her and got the early leads in the both sets. However, she could not close them out on her serve. That hardly mattered as her lead was so much that she was able to break Goerges on the next game to close it out, 6-3 6-2. Halep (3) will play Makarova in the quarterfinal as the Romanian took out Belgian Yanina Wickmayer. Wickmayer won their previous encounter but this time around, Halep came out ready for her. Halep won 6-4 6-2 and in her 2nd straight Aussie Open quarterfinal.

It looks like she's wearing a tshirt and a handtowel

The Round of 16 matches on the following day were far more interesting and intriguing on the women side. First up Cibuttkova took on Vickie who is saying that her name is Vika and not Vickie; a lot of people have now taken to call her Vicky/Vickie. Remember you heard it here first peoplez. It was REALZ who started to call her Vickie first! Anyway, gurl, this is RealzTenisFanz, you just have to deal with the name change. Everyone has made the necessary adjustments in their minds and you should be no different. You are just lucky that I generally like you and not shade you with a name like “Red’s Fool” but good thing you dumped that mofo. Anyway, so Vickie was up against Cibuttkova and Vickie started off WELL with a 2-0 lead. However, I am not sure what happened but Cibuttkova worked her way back into the match point by point and reeled off 6-straight game to take the opening set 6-2.

Cibuttkova was swinging left right and centre v Vickie

Cibuttkova was swinging left right and centre v Vickie

This was very impressive bit of tennis because Vickie was looking to boss the point around and take control of the baseline. However, Cibuttkova’s forehand was on like a boiled corn. She was hitting that thing hard and deep, forcing Vickie back in the trenches where she is prone to be more erratic. In the 2nd set, Vickie again started off with a break and this time, she made the necessary adjustments and put Cittbukova on the defensive. She began controlling the rallies and winning the points for her efforts. She took the 2nd set 6-3. In the 3rd set, she again started off with a break but as in the 1st set, she was unable to the lead. Cibuttkova continued to be solid and consistent from the back of the court and making some excellent shots. She would break Vickie one more time and take the match 6-2 3-6 6-3. She too was heading to her 2nd straight Aussie Open quarterfinals.

I must be dreaming!!

I must be dreaming!!

WOW the difference in stature is remarkable!

WOW the difference in stature is remarkable! The bigger they are, the harder they fall

Another big match of the day was Serena taking on Garbine Muguruza (24), the woman who took her out of the French Open last year. This match was heavily built up and one can see why. Muguruza was outplaying  Serena in that 1st set. She was no typical Spanish player willing to grind out a point. Nope Muggy is all about going for her shots and quick 1-2-3 punches. However, in the 2nd set, after taking the 1st set 6-2, Serena turned on the heat. She got her life together and began playing her shots and taking advantages of the MANY BREAK POINT CHANCES she had. There were so many. She took the 2nd set 6-3 and in the 3rd set, Muggy was just DONE! She could not keep up and was looking dusted on points. Serena took it 2-6 6-3 6-2. See Muggy only have strength for Serena but struggles elsewhere yet I think she has the capability of being a top 10 player in the future. But she is well off the plot if she cannot maintain her intensity and play in big matches like this.

Like you really thought you were going to beat me a 2nd time at a major? LOL #Gurlbye

Like you really thought you were going to beat me a 2nd time at a major? LOL #Gurlbye

Another American Madison Keys took on a fellow American Madison Brengle for a place in what would be the first major quarterfinal for either player. And again Keys is showing herself to be very impressive in these big matches. She really handled herself very well again Dellacqua in the 3rd round and now in the 4th round, she kept at it. She took out Brengle 6-2 6-4. She held her mental composure together well in the 2nd set when it became apparent that Brengle was finding her range again. It is very good to see young American talent burgeoning. Keys’ name has been up there for a while and now under the tutelage of Lindsay Davenport, 2000 champion here in Melbourne, she is finally showing great signs of things to come. HOWEVER, time will truly tell. There have been A LOT of players who the same can be said and they have not panned out to this day. But good luck to Keys. However, I wish her luck to run out at this point because she would be facing my main gurl Venus Ebony Starr Williams aka Granny Vee in the quarters.

Madison Keys has found the key to success here in Melbourne so far

Madison Keys has found the key to success here in Melbourne so far

The match du jour had to be Aga v Granny Vee and it was a great win for the American. She came out strong and took the 1st set 6-3. Aga was playing into her hands going for rallies instead of mixing up the shots. Vee was able to stand toe-to-toe with Aga and dictate the terms of the match. In the 2nd set, Granny Vee had to catch her breathe. She got broken early and then got broken again giving Aga the edge. The Pole took the set 6-2 and we all thought that Granny Vee was going to go home. She had a great run nonetheless. Again we lost faith in the legend. It did not help matters that in the 3rd set, she got broken to open the set. Never give up on your champions because Granny Vee Ebony Starr came back to win 6 straight game and take the match 6-3 2-6 6-1. She is back in a major quarterfinals, first time since 2010 US Open. AMAZING.

SHE WASN'T READYYYYY!!

SHE WASN’T READYYYYY!!

Ebony Starr is shining BRIGHTLIKE A DIAMOND

So the Ladies Quarterfinals are set:

  • Martha Shriekapova (2) v Genie Bouchard (7)
  • Koolaide Halep (1) v Makarova (10)
  • Serenanator (1) v Cibuttkova (11)
  • Granny Vee (18) v Madison Keys
Divadal is so far en pointe at the Aussie Open

Divadal is so far en pointe at the Aussie Open

On the men’s side there was really nothing of consequence to talk about per se. Divadal (3) took on Kevin Anderson (14) and of course he won in straight sets 7-5 6-1 6-4. I mean Anderson cannot even beat Berdych so I cannot imagine that Anderson felt he even had a chance against the likes o Divadal. I am surprised that he even won 5 games in a one set. Nonetheless he did really well for himself to get this far. Up next for Divadal would be the mercurial Tomas Berdych (7) aka Lurch aka Berdshite and soon to be Mr. Satorova (he’s engaged you all) He took on Australia’s Bernard Tomic and again he has showed himself to be in good shape at this event. He got through comfortably 6-2 7-6 6-2. So far I have been really impressed by the Czech and I do not even think he has dropped a set just yet.

Berdych is finding fine form here in Melbourne

Berdych is finding fine form here in Melbourne. Seems like he got his mind, body and game to all work together AS ONE AT THE SAME TIME. Meanwhile, Berdych, I am not seeing any package in your nest. Are you tucking? Are you a grower because you certainly not a shower?

The other two men’s match on this day (Day 7) were far more exciting. Dimitrov was taking on Lochness Murray, the guy who he dismantled at last year’s Australian Open. They split the first two sets but it was surprisingly Lochness Murray who came through in 4 sets, 6-4 6-7 6-3 7-5. I was really surprised because I expected Dimitrov to show more effort but I think he got tired after wasting all the time in the 3rd round v Baghdatis. He had no business at all being in a 5 setter with that scrub. Nonetheless, I would admit that Dimitrov had been looking rather sluggish on court but I figured that that was just his way of conserving energy after he got crushed in Brisbane by Mr. Federer 6-2 6-2.

Lochness Monster is making Melbourne Magic

Lochness Monster is making Melbourne Magic

Lochness Murray would face the lone Aussie left in the draw, Nick Kyrgios aka Kripsy Kringles who faced the man who knocked out Mr. Federer, Andreas Seppi. Seppi took control of the match like he did against Federer from the start. Seppi was up 2-0 sets 7-5 6-4 but I guess the crowd got in his face and he was unable to convert on the match point. Sometimes in tennis, when you blink, you never see straight again. Kyrgios took the match 5-7 4-6 6-3 7-6 8-6. He is through to his first major quarterfinals if I am not mistaken … wait perhaps he got through to Wimbledon’s quarterfinal. Yeah he did, he beat Divadal in the 4th round. How could I have forgotten that? He then lost to Milos if I am not mistaken.  Anyway he is through to his first quarterfinal at his home slam.

Of course Seppi went home in the next round!

Of course Seppi went home in the next round! You’re cute but you GET ZERO sympathy from me as you beat Mr. Federer

The following day for the men’s Round of 16, we had the top half in action and I have to say that I was particularly pleased with a few of the players. Let me first say that Kei Horsikori (5) has taken my advice and decided that quick and efficient is the way to go when it comes to majors. He dismissed Fake Fire Ferrer (9) in straight sets 6-3 6-3 6-3. I cannot ask for a more solid and/or quicker match from the Japanese. Hopefully this spurs him on to greater things here. His opponent would be Stanley (4) whom he took out back in NYC at the US Open in the quarters.  Now it was Stanley’s turn to disappoint me. He has been merrily going along is way here in Melbourne. However, it was Guillermo Garcia-Lopez who was playing the impressive tennis. He was giving Stanley drama on the court. Stanley’s life kept getting complicated and he could not deal for a moment. After taking the first 2 sets 7-6 6-4 with momentum shifting back and forth, Stanley got outplayed in the 3rd set. Garcia-Lopez finally got things together to take the 3rd set 6-4. In the fourth set, they were both playing well so a tiebreaker was needed to decide things. GL was up 6-1 only to let Stanley back into the match to take it. Stanley took it 7-6 6-4 4-6 7-6.

Djoker is still the man to beat here!

Djoker is still the man to beat here!

Djoker (1) was very solid against the hard serving Luxembourger Gilles Muller. Djoker stayed very solid until the crucial later stages of the match and pounced on his opponent. Djoker is through to another quarterfinals here 6-4 7-5 7-5. He will take on Milos Raonic (8) who had his hands full with FeFe Lopez (12) who it looks like is trying to get back his career in the top brackets of the game. He forced it to a 5th set but unfortunately came up short 4-6 6-4 3-6 7-6 3-6. Milos is back into the quarterfinals of the Aussie Open for the 2nd straight year.

FeFe Lopez yet again so close but yet so far from a great major run

FeFe Lopez yet again so close but yet so far from a great major run

Men’s Quarterfinals:

  • Stanley (4) v Kei (5)
  • Djoker (1) v Raonic (8)
  • Divadal (3) v Berdych (7)
  • Lochness Murray (6) v Nick Kyrgios
