The 2014 US Open Women's Doubles Championship has been concluded. But not everybody who are rooting someone to win will celebrate. In fact, the No.4 seed pairing of Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina won the doubles championship, their second Grand Slam doubles title, over unseeded pairing of Martina Hingis and Flavia Pennetta. Thus, denying Hingis to capture another Grand Slam title since 2002 Australian Open with Anna Kournikova. Though there could only be one champion, Hingis' journey to competitive tennis has been great. Did I predicted it right? My pick for 2014 US Open Women's Doubles Champion.

It is very rare I write or feature a doubles match in this blog. Actually this is the first time I will feature it. Maybe because of one player, that is, my personal favorite of mine, former Grand Slam Champion and former world No.1, Hall of Famer Martina Hingis. Yes, the main reason is because of her. I was quite surprise that she enters 2014 US Open as an unseeded team partnering Flavia Pennetta. I tried to see their progress. They upset great teams en route to their first Slam final together against No.4 seeds Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. Can Hingis/Pennetta partnership add another Slam trophy to their cabinet?

I am checking my e-mails when I received an update from one of my online account, the Elance. Of course, I checked what the mail was all about. They just delivered news to their subscribers regarding the Elance's new features that every freelancer would find very interesting.

One of the features that catches my attention was their blog where its latest post was presented in infographics. Infographics really encourages me to read. And I'm amazed how the significant and the important information are presented visually and coherently. Thus, it challenges me to try such thing. Well, I tried but too far from perfect... I really need to study to pull it off.

Though she haven't ended the year ranked No.1 player of this season, but she clinched this year's huge and most coveted title, namely, the Wimbledon, the US Open, the Gold Medal at the Olympics, and most recently, the 2012 WTA Championships.

Since her sole first-round exit of her career in Grand Slam tournaments at this year's French Open, losing to Virginie Razzano, Williams has gone 31-1 with her sole defeat at the hands of Angelique Kerber in the quarterfinals of Cincinnati. Williams finished her 2012 season with 58-4 win-loss record, winning her third WTA Championships and the oldest player to do so at age 31.

Surviving the Pain of Broken Relationship

Tags: | | | | | | | | |
Filed Under:
Many people say that falling in love is one of the happiest things you could experience in one person's lives. I'm thinking a second thought about it, but it so happened that I get there and I'm the one to say that I tend to believe it. It is one of those experiences that you want to have once in your life. It is one of those things that you can't buy.

In my opinion, encyclopedias, archives, or any information that you can find online can't give you a definite answer what love is or how love can be defined. That maybe because people who are into it can't find any words to express or describe what the feeling is all about. But one thing is for sure, it is an indescribable feeling.

I'm interested on every one’s love stories, from their happy beginnings to their happy endings or from happy beginnings to their bitter and untold endings. I am not a love adviser or counselor, but I am curious about on what people can say about these things.

NOTE: This is my own version of draw analysis on 2012 TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships. In this self-version of draw analysis, I will pick who I think will be 2012 TEB BNP Paribas WTA Champion.

The 2012 TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships at Istanbul hosting for the 2nd year will be more interesting. As the top 8 contenders have reached semifinals or better at the Grand Slam tournaments — five of those are title holders (with 22 titles between them) and two are finalists.

Such strong contenders, expect the exciting and quality matches that these players will be offered to us, and of course, the drama. The top 8 players vying for the title to be crowned as 2012 WTA Champion are No.1 Victoria Azarenka, No.2 Maria Sharapova, No.3 Serena Williams, No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska, No.5 Angelique Kerber, No.6 Petra Kvitova, No.7 Sara Errani, and No.8 Li Na.

2011 TEB BNP PARIBAS WTA CHAMPIONSHIPS

The 2011 edition of WTA year-end championship is quite interesting as draw is pretty wide open. Even though it is composed of four Grand Slam title holders, namely French Open Champion Li Na, Wimbledon Champion Petra Kvitova, US Open Champion Samantha Stosur and three-time Grand Slam titlist Maria Sharapova, every woman in the top 8 has a shot for the coveted title. With the absence of WTA dominating figure, the Williams sisters and defending champion Kim Clijsters, it is interesting too see who will emerge victorious and how fierce the competition will be with the No.1 ranking on the line.
