Clijsters: “Serena and Venus Williams got a lot of sh*t for…”

No Wimbledon and no Olympics. This is Rafael Nadal’s decision. The Spanish champion, fresh from the defeat against Novak Djokovic in Bois de Boulogne, has announced it on social channels. “It’s never an easy decision to make but after listening to my body and discussing with my team, I realized it’s the right choice to make.

The goal is obviously to extend my career and keep doing what makes me happy, which is to compete at the highest level and keep fighting for professional and personal goals at the highest level, “he explained over the course of a long message.

He therefore clears both the reasons and the timing. The Spaniard, before approaching Paris, had closed the string of tournaments on clay-courts with two victories (Barcelona and Rome) and two quarter-finals, reached first in Monte-Carlo and then in Madrid.

Clijsters: “Serena and Venus Williams got a lot of sh*t for…”
On the Spaniard’s decision, a New Yorker writer retweeted Nadal’s recent retirement announcement from Wimbledon with the caption: “Seems to me that Naomi Osaka started a very healthy trend of listening to one’s body.”

However, 4-time Grand Slam champion Kim Clijsters was quick to note along with others that the trend began long before, crediting Venus and Serena Williams as the main trailblazers. Clijsters tweeted: “Venus and Serena started it I thinkresponse to the original.

They got a lot of sh*t for it but it’s the reason why we are still able to enjoy their tennis.” It has been a few years now that Serena Williams has returned to the WTA Tour to try to win a Slam tournament again and thus reach the incredible record of 24 Slams.

Beyond this Serena Williams is now in the history of this sport and everything that sees her as the protagonist of her puts her in the spotlight. In her career, Clijsters won forty-one WTA singles titles, including four Grand Slam tournaments (three US Open and one Australian Open) and three year-end Masters, becoming world number one in August 2003 and winning the Fed Cup with the Belgium in 2001.

The widow of Kobe Bryant wants retribution for what happened last year after her husband and daughter died in a helicopter crash.

But what kind of retribution? And how much?

Vanessa Bryant is suing Los Angeles County, accusing county sheriff’s and fire department employees of improperly sharing photos of dead bodies from the site of the crash that killed nine, including the NBA legend.

As the case heads to trial in February, perhaps the biggest question hovering above it is what her goal is for it.

Andy Murray’s wedding ring and shoes returned following Indian Wells disappearance

Published

on

Andy Murray’s wedding ring and tennis shoes have been recovered after they seemingly disappeared in the California desert.

The three-time major winner is preparing for action at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells and left his tennis shoes outside underneath his car to dry out overnight – but they were nowhere to be seen when he returned in the morning.

And it was only when his physio asked about his wedding band that he realised he had left the ring tied to his shoes.

In an Instagram video posted late on Thursday, which was shared on Twitter by the ATP Tour Murray said: “I just want to send a quick message to say a huge thanks for all the messages and also to everyone for sharing the story about the shoes and the wedding ring.

“(I) had to make a few calls today and chat to the security at the hotel and everything.

“Little update for everyone,” he said as he raised the shoes into view.

“Would you believe it, they still absolutely stink but the shoes are back, the wedding ring is back and I’m back in the good books. Let’s go.”

In an earlier post, Murray light-heartedly appealed for the return of the ring – to help him smooth things over with his frustrated wife.

He explained leaving his shoes to dry out under his car as “I have no balcony in my room and I didn’t want to leave them in my room as it would stink the room out”.

Murray married his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears in 2015 at Dunblane Cathedral. The couple now have four children.

The Scot is due to play France’s Adrian Mannarino in the first round at Indian Wells on Friday.

NASCAR Star Has Brutally Honest Admission On Michael Jordan

Published

on

Legendary Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan has a very commanding presence, both on and off the basketball court.

In recent years, Jordan has gotten involved in other sports, namely NASCAR. The NBA Hall of Famer is part owner of 23XI Racing, which is co-owned by Denny Hamlin.

The NASCAR team features Bubba Wallace and is adding Kurt Busch for the 2022 season.

Busch, a veteran NASCAR driver, had a brutally honest admission on his meeting with Jordan.

“I mean he is the GOAT. The situation, the way it all came together, it was this impressive meeting out in Sonoma earlier this summer. Right away, I got along with him. Just with the way he was chill but also presented this aura about him. ‘We will win. We are here to win. This is what this is about,’” Busch remembered in an interview with SiriusXM. “And it was like, ‘Yes sir.’ He’s like, ‘Don’t call me sir.’ I said, ‘Alright, let’s win.’”

Busch is excited to get going for 23XI Racing.

“It was just easy right away to piece together what the contract is,” he recalled. “Monster Energy was incredibly excited about it. Toyota, they were the ones behind the scenes, kind of pushing for a veteran to jump in the program and move the needle with 23XI. I’ve raced a long time for a lot of different legendary owners and Hall of Famers in NASCAR. MJ definitely has a different presence about him.”

The 2022 season should be a fun one.
