Sweeping the court

Bojana Jovanovski won the Tashkent Open today when she defeated Olga Govortsova 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 in the final. Jovanovski, who was the top qualifying seed, went on to become the top seed in the tournament (has this ever happened before?). Top seeds Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova won the doubles title.

The Backspin third quarter awards have been published, and do not miss the video of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova dancing after winning the U.S. Open. 

Bethanie Mattek-Sands is out for the rest of the year with a knee injury. Mattek-Sands tore her right MCL during the third set of a match in Quebec City this past week. 

Anna Chakvetadze has retired from professional tennis. Chakvetadze, who was the number 5 player in the world six years ago, suffers from chronic back probems and therefore cannot continue to play.

How great is this photo

Maria Sharapova says that her goal is to play in the WTA Championships at the end of the season, but of course, that depends on the progress of her rehab from shoulder bursitis.

I love how the wax figure has the tape on its knee. :D

Isn't that great? Wax figures don't usually look too good these days, but that one seems to capture the "serious" side of Li.
