Some observations from Day 1...
Chris Evert is being paid to be a commentator. Sure the standards to be a tennis commentator are pretty low but when you botch something as basic to modern tennis as who got shafted by bad calls at the US Open resulting in the institution of HawkEye I'm sure the suits gave you a good talking to. Pammy corrected her as an aside and did the moving on thing. Really Chris?
So what to do about her? Put her in the studio? I don't think so since Hannah Storm called Michael Russell Michael Young and obviously wasn't listening to Darren Cahill who called Russell by his correct name because she promptly called him out of his name again. The mind boggles at the shenanigans Chrissie and Hannah could get up to in the studio.
Leave it to Venus Williams to make a huge fashion statement. Most people found fault with her modern day romper. I liked it. The legs are full and allow movement. The top is draped and also allows the arms to move freely. The fabric, white on white, is great. Of course Venus had to leave a little skin showing and the cut out in the back caps off the modern look.
There were also complaints about the zipper in the front but as any woman knows rompers and jump suits are not that popular because at some point you have to go to the ladies room. The zipper placed like it is allows for an easier time when you have to go. Besides it looks better there than in the back of what are supposed to be cocktail dresses or evening gowns where it just looks like the seamstress doesn't have a clue about sewing.
Due to the rain the majority of matches will be completed tomorrow. Unless Chrissie rewrites history again or Hannah continues to call people out of their name I won't post until all of the first round matches have been played.
