>- Kim Clijsters and daughter Jada’s tender moments at the US Open in 2009 have been immortalised in a Barbie. There is a Clijsters Barbie holding her trophy and a little Jada Barbie holding a tennis racquet. She is now the first athlete to have a Barbie likeness made. One can only wonder if they make a Nadal Barbie if they will make its left arm significantly bigger than the right in order to be anatomically correct.
- Spaniard Feliciano Lopez has continued his good start to the season (compared to last year when he struggled to win 2 matches in a row) and is now through to the SA Open quarterfinals after beating Blaz Kavic 6-2, 7-6.
Lopez will now face Rajeev Ram in the quarterfinals.
- Also through to the quarterfinals is Dustin Brown of Jamaica. He is the first Jamaican to reach a quarterfinal since 1989. He played an aggressive serve and volley style tennis on an awkwardly empty side court yesterday
- Serena Williams has also hit the media circuit in the States visiting Jimmy Kimmel and the Ellen Show on the same day.
