Well, that's only true if you don't include the weight of Masha's ego! JUST KIDDING!! Love Masha!

Don't forget to "spring forward" tonight (although I realized I don't actually wear a watch and haven't since I went to a smartphone)...all my gadgets do it automatically...but for those who still wear non-digital watches...

more pics and video on my blog: Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic Roll In Second Round Of 2012 BNP Paribas Open At Indian Wells Fairways and Forehands

Maria Sharapova


I think Gisela Dulko has had enough of seeing Maria Sharapova early this season. A few months ago in Melbourne at the 2012 Australian Open, the two met in a first round clash that was all Masha, 6-0 6-1. And it wasn’t that close. Fast forward to the second round of the 2012 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells and it was Gisela vs Masha again. Second verse, same as the first. Masha once again torched and overpowered Gisela, this time 6-2 6-0. You can never take any players lightly, but Masha’s side of the draw is potentially favorable, although Caroline Wozniacki, Samantha Stosur, Marion Bartoli and Ana Ivanovic are lurking. Still, Masha gets to avoid a possible showdown with Petra Kvitova or Victoria Azarenka until the final, should Masha make it that far.

Ana Ivanovic


While Masha was continuing her dominance over Dulko, Ana Ivanovic was exacting revenge (of sorts) on Johanna Larsson. 2008 Roland Garros winner Ivanovic was unceremoniously bounced out of Paris last year by Larsson in the first round. It was a see-saw match in France in which Ana actually dropped a bagel on Johanna in the second set before being dismissed in the third. Second verse, different than the first. Ana jumped on Larsson at Indian Wells and didn’t let up, beating the Swede 6-2 6-1. If Ana can get by Ksenia Pervak in her next match, there is a potential match-up in the fourth round with Caroline Wozniacki.

I like Marion Bartoli...she's not a glamour girl on tour...but she rocks!

Speaking of Ana, she looked great at the Players Party. Here she is with men's #1, and good friend, Novak Djokovic.

more pics and video on my blog: Christina McHale Upsets Petra Kvitova In Third Round Of 2012 BNP Paribas Open At Indian Wells; Victoria Azarenka Finds Her Form Fairways and Forehands

Christina McHale


When Christina McHale defeated then #1 Caroline Wozniacki in 2011, it was apparent to everybody that this was not just some fluke win over a top player. McHale has game and is not intimidated by the higher ranked players. She took that fearlessness onto the court in the third round of the 2012 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells, downing the 2011 WTA Player of the Year 2-6 6-2 6-3. To be fair, it did seem like Petra was not herself and having trouble breathing. An asthma sufferer, Kvitova even went to her inhaler during the match. There is also a viral bug that has hit at Indian Wells. But afterwards, Petra made no excuses and well she shouldn’t. Even if she wasn’t 100%, it doesn’t diminish the fact that Christina took the game to her and looked to be aggressive.

Victoria Azarenka


Victoria Azarenka nearly suffered an upset loss herself in her first match at Indian Wells. In her second match against 2-time Major winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, not so much. I’m not surprised, nobody is, that Vika defeated Sveta, but Azarenka dismissed Kuznetsova with a 6-1 6-2 message to the rest of the field not to get too hopeful following her first match struggles. Vika was all business in dispatching a very tough opponent.

Singles – Third Round
(1) Victoria Azarenka (BLR) d. (25) Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) 61 62
(32) Christina McHale (USA) d. (3) Petra Kvitova (CZE) 26 62 63
(5) Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) d. (27) Flavia Pennetta (ITA) 64 62
(8) Li Na (CHN) d. (31) Zheng Jie (CHN) 61 63
Klara Zakopalova (CZE) d. (9) Vera Zvonareva (RUS) w/o (viral illness)
(14) Julia Goerges (GER) d. (24) Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP) 63 64
(18) Angelique Kerber (GER) d. Vania King (USA) w/o (GI illness)
(WC) Jamie Hampton (USA) d. Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS) 62 67(1) 62
