The 2014 world of tennis started off with a Big Bang. Yes ,the marriage of Ryan Sweeting and Kaley Cuoco on New Year’s Eve. We are thrilled for them. Lovebirds for sure. We got a Postcard from Sven and he was photo bombed and did a photobomb. Classic Groeneveld. Maria Sharapova got him on his credential photo. And somehow Sven got in the Serena prematch shot. It actually was a tv shot and it looked like he kept trying to get out of the frame.

 

Tennis Family Royalty Brett Connors spent New Year’s Eve at the Playboy Mansion in Bel Air, California or maybe that south side of Sunset is called Holmby Hills. The tennis court up there is in a beautiful setting. Brett is family to Hugh Hefner. BCP (Brett Connors photography) He is the most talented young tennis photographer. He also loves to shoot everything and anything around us in nature. We really love his sunsets. His go pro oven shot is right up there. He has a real eye for beauty. We hear there’s a new beauty or two chasing him. Good thing he is working 20 hour days.. Yes, he is off to Melbourne to cover his 7th. Auzzie Open with ESPN.

 

Re: Roger Federer and this stage of his career. He needs to win matches in straight sets. That extra set he played against Chardy wore him out, and he maybe jammed a toe maybe? He still had to play a doubles after that match against Jeremy. I think by the time the finals Roger had a not so full tank. I’m not saying that Hewitt isn’t a bulldog but we sure wanted to see the trophy go the other way around. But it’s great for Auzzie tennis that Hewitt won Brisbane.
