TW Fashion Week 2014

Whaddya know, it’s that time of year again! Time to prove once more that tennis is the most fashion-forward sport out there. With the recent end of all the Fashion Weeks that took place across the world, we got some insight into the next trends to come in the upcoming year.

Why I’m rooting for Caroline Wozniacki

Truth be told, I have never been a big fan of Caroline Wozniacki. Mostly because I found her style of play to be boring and I couldn’t relate to her passive tennis. I always found myself critiquing the fact that she didn’t seem to have a weapon besides her consistency. Until recently.
