Common Stubbs!

In tennis usually the top seed does alright.

Kveta Peschke, Czech Republic, and Rennae Stubbs (2), Australia, def. Alicia Molik, Australia, and Mara Santangelo (1), Italy, 6-0, 6-1.

But not yesterday. Tennis is trying to promote the value of women’s doubles, by saying it’s exciting, and the new no-ad scoring (to make it faster) is better and so on. But yesterday, the 2 took out the 1 in nothing flat. It was a 43 minute pathetic effort by the top seeds who just had no skills whatsoever. Exciting? No. I heard moans of people wanting money back for the quality of this match. It’s definitely not worth having on television. However, Rennae Stubbs is pretty fun to watch. She’s a Aussie who’s sort of like the Yoda of women’s doubles. 56 titles now, and counting. A few grand slams, so she’s for real. She’s in her mid 30s, born in 1971, gets hyped up, and is an outspoken lesbian. She has a hard serve, handles volleys well, and overall, is pretty tough, but according to her wiki entry, as only got as high as 64 in singles! Read this article on her.
