(UPDATED) ROUND ROBIN: Tennis news from around the grounds

Since there's been so much tennis news to cover recently (more than one man with two hands can handle alone), I felt a quick roundup was in order. And by no means is this an exhaustive list:

- SI's Jon Wertheim's US Open seed reports for the boys + ladies are up...and so are mine!
- Rafa takes in Mamma Mia!, gets a shot with Kimmie Clijsters
- ReRe featured on cover and inside story of Hamptons Magazine
- Dani jumps ship, lands with adidas and will work with Sven Groeneveld + Darren Cahill in the brand's baller development program
- Check out The New York Observer's US Open coverage - good stuff
- A-Rod calls TIU's Twitter policy for US Open "lame"; visited David Letterman this past week; Q&A with Straight Sets; spotted locking lips with Brooklyn; has a fan in RHONY's Bethenny Frankel
- Arthur Ashe Kids' Day was a smash
- Nando + Wozzi are Pilot Pen champs
- Gonzo does Mason's meet-and-greet
- What's in a name or initials? Ask RF. Oh, and check out his interview with Gimel for CBS.
- Word has it US Open Series winner Elena is officially a New Yorker.

Also, today is the last day to enter the Dick's Sporting Goods DtL Reader Giveaway to win a $100 gift card to the retailer. The winner will be announced tomorrow.

Enjoy the US Open everyone!!!

PS - Thanks Nirali for your tips.

UPDATE: I totally forgot to mention the official baller party for this year's US Open sponsored by Heineken and held at Skyline Studios. I guess it slipped my mind because no one aside from Venus Williams, Tommy Robredo, James Blake, and Bethanie Mattek-Sands managed to show face. Maybe the USTA should consider making it a mandatory event for the tours. Just a thought.

  1. Thanks Rich! Busy times ahead... :)

  2. Hello,

    First of all I just wanted to let you know I love your website, and we need more sites online like yours. With that said I have a couple of questions for you:

    1) Is it OK if I link to your website from my site
    2) Is my sneaker shop worthy enough to be linked to from your website?

    Please let me know when you have some time. Talk to you soon.


  3. Rere is just smashing in that pic! I think that she is soooo pretty when she doesn't try so hard...I mean the natural makeup really makes her glow. That harsh red lipstick she likes so much just aint cutting it. lmao!
