Very happy is Serena Williams who won her first tournament in quite a while this weekend at the Bank of the West Classic where she defeated Marion Bartoli in the Finals.

The 2011 Wimbledon Women’s Singles title was won Saturday by Petra Kvitova in straight sets over Maria Sharapova. Some notables about this event:
21 year old Kvitova is the youngest women’s singles winner since Sharapova herself.
Until the Finals, Sharapova hadn’t lost a single set in the entire tournament.
This is Kvitova’s first Major victory and her first tournament win ever on grass.
Kvitova is the first left-handed champion since Martina Navratilova.

After a couple of years where she was probably better known for her commercials than her success on a tennis court, Maria Sharapova seems to be having a bit of a resurgence this year. She is also in the quarterfinals of the women’s singles at Wimbledon.

I downloaded the Top Spin 4 demo for Xbox the other day and in the demo, you can only play as one of two women, either Serena Williams OR
Ana Ivanovic (pictured above)
And all I’m thinking as I fire up the demo was “How did girlsofgotham arrange to get her into the demo?” :)
GOG, I will tell you the ponytail physics in this game is amazing! :)

Nice article today in USA Today about US tennis player, Vania King. She hasn’t had a lot of success yet in singles play, but has won doubles championships at two Majors, Wimbledon and the US Open.
