VIDEO: Baghdatis breaks 4 rackets at Aussie Open

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

We've been told it's possible to have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day even in Australia. Judging by this reaction to losing the second set to Stanislaw Wawrinka in the second round of the Australian Open Wednesday, we're guessing Cyprus's Marcos Baghdatis isn't going to argue: 



Unfortunately for Baghdatis, his day would get even more terrible-horrible-no good-very bad from there, as he went on to lose to Wawrinka in four sets. Though we don't know officially how many rackets Baghdatis would go on to smash after actually losing the match, Eye on Sports is setting the over-under at 11.5.

Enberg discusses Wimbledon's 'bloody blue balls'

Posted by Will Brinson

In what will likely become one of the funnier announcing moments from 2011's Wimbledon coverage, Dick Enberg, working Venus Williams' latest match -- a three-set victory over 40-year-old Kimiko Date-Krumm -- told a story about an old-school Englander who was lamenting what would happen if you mixed yellow tennis balls and green grass stains.

The result? "Bloody blue balls," Enberg pointed out to partner Chris Evert (via The Big Lead).

Yes, her response -- "Okay ... I'll leave that one alone" -- is even funnier than the story.
