Hit For Haiti: Vid Spam

Some kind soul already downloaded the whole thing on You Tube.  The quality is not that great but better than nothing. For those who missed it or want to see it again, this is for you. There are six parts and it’s quite long. Enjoy.


Aussie Aussie Aussie! Bye Bye Bye!

So, it’s Hopman Cup time again, and while last year’s event was pretty much made of win, this year, there is no Marat or Flavs there. Despite this, the field is pretty interesting.

Todays match up saw hosts Australia take on Romania, with Sorana Cirstea and her ‘coon eyes taking on Slammin Sammy Stosur as the opener. In what was a minor upset, Cirstea def. Stosur, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3.

Next up, Lleyton Hewitt took on Victor Hanescu, and, after three sets of exhilarating tennis, the Aussie former World #1 came out on top, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6. Hewitt seemed to be playing better than we’ve seen from him in a long time. So, you know, look out, world (!).

So, it all came down to the Mixed Doubles with Sammy & Lleyton taking on Team HaneStea, which the Romanians won handily, 7-5, 6-1. Slammin Sammy again looked out of sorts, Hewitt impressed, and HaneStea were a well oiled machine.

To the victors go the spoils, so kudos Team Romania!
