In my absence here’s some catch-up news you may have missed from the last two days.

Sania Mirza Getting Married
Indian tennis beauty Sania Mirza will marry Pakistani cricket star Shoaib Malik.

“Thanks for all your support. And the news of Me marrying to Sania is true,” Malik tweeted yesterday.

The 23-year-old Mirza who was engaged last year to Sohrab Mirza, is at present off the tour nursing a wrist injury.

Malik, 28, is a two-time captain of Pakistan’s cricket team. The two will marry in April. They met in Dubai and have been an item now for six months. Watch for the video for more details!

Kim Kardashian at the Tennis
If you watched the matches the last few days you may have seen the popular Kim Kardashian in the crowd. The ATP even released video of the TV star watching Fernando Verdasco play.

Kardashian got even closer to the action yesterday. Kim was on the court yesterday with Roger Federer and Florent Serra for a pre-match picture and coin-toss.

“Rain has finally gone away and now the tennis matches can begin! I’m tossing the coin for the Roger Federer match now!” the “temptress” tweeted.

According to Sam Querrey, Kim didn’t even know who Federer was!


Kardashian has been at the tournament in part filming her hit TV show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” which airs on E! Just recently she broke up with boyfriend Reggie Bush which means she’s single again. Players be warned!

Vasco Says:

I watched the coin toss yesterday (and the whole match afterwards!) and Roger said his name when meeting Kim: “Hi, I’m Roger” and shook her hand. Priceless momment

RZ Says:

“Celebrities” who know nothing about tennis shouldn’t be invited to take part in a tournament!

madmax Says:

ha! Vasco!

priceless indeed, and there’s KK thinking it would be Roger’s pleasure to meet her! No way hose! Well done Roger! You are the best!


why did they even invite this woman? She is splashed on all the UK magazines. She couldnt care less about tennis, so I totally agree with you.

tennismenace Says:

KK = Pure tramp. Feddy should avoid her at all costs.

tennismenace Says:

I like the Indian newscasters. Funny.

Tennislover Says:

The plumtress apparently has some connections she is not afraid to take advantage of for shameless self-promotion. Another pathetic reality tv “star”/idiot. Please.

Matt Kehoe Says:

Federer doesn’t know who Kardashian is either, so fair is fair!

ThyGodisTennis Says:

Ugh. Roger why can’t you serve out a match? Nice 70 mile/hour serve. Maybe you should play at my tennis club. You might win there!


Meg1 Says:

ThyGodisTennis – did you read your own post? Federer a loser? He has never claimed to be perfect; however, he is only number 1 in the world !!!!!!!!!
