It’s a good week for American Sports. The Williams Sisters are dominating Wimbledon again and will battle once more in the finals. Andy Roddick is headed to the finals as well, although he has to duel Roger Federer again – uphill battle..yes, but impossible..no!
Also, Kelly Slater moved from 27th or so to 9th in the World with a win at the Hang Loose Pro in Brazil. An event Slater wasn’t even planning on attending until he got some pressure from sponsors and friends to show. Who would want to be ranked 1-8 right now on the WCT knowing that the winningest athlete in sports history – better than Tiger Woods, better than Federer, better than…Lance, is hunting you! 9 world titles and stalking number 10.
Last, Lance is ready to make a return to the tour. What will probably be the most watched event in the history of cycling. Along with Lance we’ve got Levi, Christian V looking to represent the US pretty strong. If Lance is near the front and is within reach of the mellow johnny, nobody closes the door like that man.
Should make for a fun weekend of sports.
