Sweeping the court

Former "Real Housewives of New York City" star Jill Zarin will compete in the mixed doubles division of the U.S. Open National Playoffs. Her partner will be Kyle Owens, who teaches at the Murphjy Jensen Tennis Academy. Zarin's tennis game isn't too shabby, by the way.

You can now get to know Taylor Townsend. (She can play the violin.)

Paul Annacone doesn't understand his iPhone at all. Unfortunately, Sloane Stephens thinks this has something to do with his age. Sorry, Sloane--it just has something to do with his inferior gadget aptitude.

The WTA Championships are now the "WTA Finals." Go figure.

Julia Goerges is the first player to use a "connected" racket at a major tournament. Goerges' Babolat can tell her a whole lot about what she did on the court, and the German player is very impressed with it.

The WTA "Finals," yet there's that other WTA TOC event a week later. At least they won't have to include a "title-less" Pironkova as a wild card in Sofia this year to get her into the event. :)

I think WTA Finals is a stupid name, but then, they didn't consult me about the egg, either.
