Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
Rafa Around the Post Winner
Nadal is having a fantastic US Open this year, and his round of 16 match against Cilic was no different. The highlight was his insane around the post winner he hit to set up match point. It was straight ridiculous.

We’re always experimenting with new products to help us perform our best on and off the court, so recently we took GOODONYA’s electrolyte and mineral hydration drink for a spin, and it did not disappoint. Organic, low sugar, delicious lemon flavor, lighter and less intense than most hydration drinks. Plus, they’re local in Encinitas, CA.
Keep an eye out for a full review coming your way soon.
Question of the Week
In his article this week, Peter Bodo, a Staff Writer for ESPN put a stake in the ground with his article titled “This is the beginning of the end of tennis’ Big Three as we know it.” What’s your take? We’d love to hear your thoughts on the discussion boards.
Kobe Bryant’s Tennis Book?
Believe it or not, Kobe Bryant’s “Legacy and the Queen,” a fantasy novel about a 12-year-old girl who loves tennis, will be his second children’s book and his third book overall. His three daughters age, 16, 13, and 2, have inspired his writing.
Andy Murray’s Kitten Naps
Ahead of the US Open, Jimmy Fallon dared players to slip funny sayings into their interviews secretly, and it doesn’t disappoint. Our favorite is stone-faced Andy Murray sharing that “I used to take cat naps, but now I take kitten naps. Half as long, Twice as Cute.”
