What is better than going on a vacation? Playing tennis and watching world class tennis while on vacation! And Tennis Ventures does just that! Not only does Tennis Ventures cover the Grand Slams, but they also have an amazing vacation package here at the BNP Paribas Open. For 2014, the vacation includes a doubles clinic with the Bryan Brothers, a tennis camp with Lindsay Davenport and John Leach, box seat and luxury suite tickets to the BNP Paribas Open, a special demo session with the Tennis Warehouse Playtesters, and much more.
When Alexandr Dolgopolov burst onto the ATP, I quickly realized I had a new favorite player. His happy-go-lucky attitude paired with his flashy game sealed the deal for me! I will mention that it hasn’t always been an easy road being on the Team Dolgo fanwagon. Convincing other tennis fans about his talent and potential to be in the top 10 on the ATP has always been a task. While staying a loyal fan through heartbreaking losses, injuries, and low percentage tennis hasn’t always been easy, Alex has remained my favorite through it all. My friends and colleagues at Tennis Warehouse have had to put up with my Dolgo chatter since they met me, and especially during this year’s BNP Paribas Open, so check out the reasons why this talented, bouncy Ukrainian is number one in my book…and hopefully climbing the rankings to make the top ten very soon.
In the past few years, hybrids have been all the rage. Hybrid cars, hybrid pets, hybrid fruits and vegetables (ever heard of a grapple or broccolini?), so why not tennis bags?! Introducing the Head Djokovic Tower Bag with Stand. A cross between a tennis bag and golf bag.
Novak Djokovic has been using this bag at this week’s BNP Paribas Open. It’s a really well made bag featuring all the bells and whistles. Stuff like an insulated racquet compartment, backpack straps, padded grab handles, but the “stand” out feature has got to be the kick stand legs. Not only do they allow easy access to one of the accessories pocket, where one can store their phone, wallet and keys, but it also keeps a majority of the bag away from the ground, keeping it clean. This is a great bag for those who play on clay.
