Opening Round Images from USTA Atlanta Women's Pro Circuit

Tuesday saw the opening round start at the Norman Wilkerson Memorial USTA Pro Circuit Event outside of Atlanta.  The temps started out hot early in the day and then cloud cover took hold, but humidity was still around 100%.

Players were commenting that this is most brutal weather they had ever played in.

ATP Tour Match of the Week: Djokovic vs. Bellucci

Did I surprise you this week by picking this match and not the obvious Nadal/Federer showdown?

This is an inriguing match and surprisingly these two have only met once.  Djokovic won last year in Rome 6-4, 6-4.  Look at the tale of the tape and how even it is until you hit the last three lines and then it gets ugly.

Djokovic has quite a winning streak going and for that reason alone, this is a must see match.

I like Djokovic to keep the winning ways going as he will probably win in 3-sets.  6-4 in the third.

Here's hoping for a Nadal vs. Djokovic final on clay, in Spain.
