LA Tidbits: Please tell me they have a roof with on-court mics in LA?
It’s only appropriate, considering the Gruntfest Spectacular we have in store for us next round – Maria Sharapova v Victoria Azarenka. Shrieker v Banshee.
It’ll be music to me sadistic ears!

This is a weird thing to say, considering I actually like Vika, but I really, really don’t want to see Sharapova lose to her.
Maybe it’s because they’re so similar in style but two years apart in age, it kinda makes me sad to think of Maria – as a prototype for loud, ferocious “Big Babe” tennis – losing to a newer, shinier model. Not to mention, Sharapova is in desperate need of a big win against someone not named Nadia Petrova.
So c’mon Maria, summon your inner pitbull and let’s show the Banshee what Masha Fierce is all about.
