Fourhand: Wozniacki Wins, Nearly at Love
WOZ WINS, NEARLY AT LOVE Caroline Wozniacki pasted Roberta Vinci's showing in the Istanbul Cup final to the floor with a 6-1, 6-1 rout in just 67 minutes. On a day when Rory McIlroy won a tournament of his own (a big one: The British Open), some fans and observers were rooting for Wozniacki's moment of sun to outshine the lover who jilted her earlier this year.
DOUBLE TROUBLE Martina Hingis and Venus Williams paired up in World TeamTennis doubles for the Washington Kastles this week, their first tandem appearance ever. Come for the shot of them delivering an all-smiles high-five, and stay for Venus' amusing reaction shot during a point in Bobby Reynolds' singles match.
The Kastles beat the Texas Wild, and both Hingis and Williams spoke afterward about playing well together after falling behind 2-1 early.
AGASSI IN 2016? Andre Agassi delivered a keynote address (more of a Q&A, as it turned out) at the Governor's Dinner in Nevada, a luminous fundraiser for a state university, and of course everyone is getting reacquainted with their own notions about the tennis star's political aspiration.
