Five Point Friday16 Aug 2019/Start the Conversation
Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
“Serena vs. The Umpire”
ESPN is debuting their new docuseries Backstory which will Premiere August 18 at 1 pm ET on ABC just in time for the US Open. Their first episode titled “Serena vs. The Umpire” will explore last year’s controversial final between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka.
Andrey Rublev Rolls
Ranked as high as 31 in June of 2018, Andrey has been a young player to keep your eye on in the past year. However, a back injury last spring forced him to stay away from the court for a few months. This week at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati OH, Andrey defeated Stan Wawrinka and Federer in back to back wins to reach the quarters. He’ll face Medvedev who’s been on fire himself.
Dustin Snipes Photography
Dustin Snipes is an LA-based portrait and sports photographer who more recently has worked with Wilson to capture some awesome photos of Serena Williams and Roger Federer. He’s worth a follow for all of his stunning sports photography.
