Serena has been looking lovely lately in her appearances. Ahem .. her girls too, I suppose. lol

I haven't had a chance to watch much tennis lately, but I'm hoping to catch Mischa Zverev soon. Tomorrow maybe.

I was tickled pink when he took out Gilles Simon. I just can't stand watching Simon play. It's like watching grass die.

Me 2 - LOL

Karen said...

Pamela, me and you both. He is just a really boring player. I have never seen Mischa play but I have heard a lot about him. Heres hoping I will get a chance to see him. Trying to find the next big thing to cheer for on the men's side. Have already found it on the women's side, if only she would not play so much.

Pamela said...

lol Karen, I'm glad I'm not alone. As it stands, I still ended up missing Mischa play. He lost to Chardy. I still love his game. His game has time to mature, so even if he doesn't become a "big name" I'll still probably root for him just because.

I absolutely love the photos of Serena. Compared to some of her other recent outfits this one is fantastic. Love, love her hair, makeup, everything. :-)
