Here at Tennis Warehouse we are anxiously counting down the days until the BNP Paribas tournament in Indian Wells! So to pass the time until then, we are keeping tabs on the ATP and WTA tournaments going on, but have also found ourselves fixated on the Winter Olympics around here! You may have heard the shriek from our office that we let out when we watched Shaun White’s two runs in the Half Pipe the other day! Not to mention, we have all been rocking some red, white and blue apparel and are learning about new athletes, not to mention we are intrigued by the winter sports and determined to try and perfect them ourselves.
So I asked some of my fellow playtesters 3 questions about this year’s Winter Olympics:
Favorite Winter Olympic Sport to watch?
Favorite Olympic Athlete?
If you could compete in any winter sport, what would it be?
Check out their answers and be sure to check out some of our patriotic gear!
I always get a bit bummed the couple days after a Grand Slam ends. For two weeks straight I had hours on end of awesome tennis to watch (good thing Davis Cup is back in action this weekend), and now football is the only thing I see when I turn on the TV (which, isn’t a bad thing, go Niners, it just isn’t tennis!). Anyway, to recap our US Open picks, my picks were knocked out by the 4th or 5th day of the US Open, while Karly and Jason were the only two playtesters who called the US Open 2013 Champions — and Tiffani was oh, so close with her Gasquet pick! This week, since I don’t have any live tennis to watch today, I decided to bug my fellow playtesters and ask them,
“Who from the WTA or ATP would play doubles with? (We already answered the mixed doubles question, so stay within your gender on this one!)”
