So, it's been a while. I promise I will try to do more blogs, at least once a week moving forward. I will talk about other sports, but mostly this will be about tennis and especially Marta!
Unfortunately, Marta is out with an injury but she could be back for Madrid at the end of the month. Congrats to BB -Belinda Bencic for winning Charleston! I had Ons winning it and I am now 11-27 at picking tourney winners this year. Opelka won Houston, Goffin (who suddenly is playing OK again) won Marrakech and Maria won Bogota.
This week there is just Monte Carlo with the return of Nole! He could play my other favorite Carlos Alcaraz in the quarters and that would be a mouth-watering clash! I have Nole winning the whole thing, we will see.
The Billie Jean King Cup is also being played with Ukraine playing the U.S. Go Ukraine, even though Marta won't play. DY and Co. can still take it!
In other sports, congrats to my Boston Celtics for getting the 2 seed in the East in the NBA playoffs, bring on Brooklyn. We ain't scared!
Also congrats to Scottie Scheffler for winning the Masters, but what we really care about is Tiger came back and played! It was so great watching him again after everything he's been through.
It was also great having MLB back and the Yankees are off to a 2-1 start!
Going back to tennis, it's clear that Iga is dominating the game and that is awesome to see. I still hope Marta can keep improving and become big rivals with her like they did in the juniors. Women's tennis is going to be exciting to watch for years to come. Men's tennis is also in good hands as Carlos has shown that he is going to be the man!
Until next time - peace!
