Winner of the Week

 Nicolay Davydenko wins WTF. Nicolay Davydenko wins. WTF !!


Indianapolis Event Moving to Atlanta in 2010

On the heels of the Kitzbuhel, Austria event moving to Nice, France next season, it was released today that the long standing tournament in Indianapolis will be relocated to Atlanta, Georgia next year.
The Indianapolis Business Journal stated that due to lack of funding for the event, the 30-year-old tournament will be changing venues. Indianapolis had been without a title sponsor since RCA ended its long-time association with the event in 2006.
The tournament was won by Robby Ginepri for the second time earlier this summer.

So Nice in Nice

New Nice Event To Replace Kitzbuhel

The ATP has announced that the Kitzbuhel, Austria event will be replaced in 2010 by a new World Tour 250 series event to be held at the clay courts of the Nice Lawn Tennis Club the week prior to Roland Garros.
“We are delighted to announce the new event in Nice,” said Laurent Delanney, ATP Chief Executive Officer – Europe. “Nice staged a popular ATP World Tour event for many years and it is great to be able to return there after a 15 year absence. Tennis has a huge following in France and many French players compete at the highest level on the ATP World Tour.”
The Nice event becomes the fifth ATP World Tour event in France after Marseille, Metz, Lyon and Paris. Nice had held an ATP World Tour event for several years until 1995. It may also mean a little less traveling for those players who want to stay within France before Roland Garros.

First bet of the blog, last bet of the year

Just because I started this blog today, I've decided to have one last bet this year. :-)

Backed Delpo 1.6 at 2-2 1st set. Since it's the last one of the year, and since I assume this will be like most of the other things I've done this year, I expect to lose.

TB now. Delpo 5-0 down. I think that means he'll have to win the next two sets.

And another BP for Delpo. 

Oh, Delpo, not from 40-15 ! :( 
(not that I'm in the slightest bit surprised that the year ends like this of course). Although Sod is still good for a little choke I feel.

:D back on serve. 4-3*

3rd set TB 4-0 for my man and I'm out. 
I end this annus horribilis on a good note and a good omen for 2010. At least that's what I would like to think.
