The Ugg-ly Truth About Caroline Wozniacki

I know it's snowing season but it doesn't mean that Caroline Wozniacki can walk into a movie premiere in those ugg-ly boots!

Those horrendous boots simply don't go with that black dress and her pretty face. And let's not even talk about those tanned lines.

Zheng Jie, Sania Mirza, Dementieva, Kirilenko: Meet the fans in KL

WTA babes Zheng Jie, Sania Mirza, Elena Dementieva and Maria Kirilenko are currently in town for the annual tennis exhibition match, The Glam Slam Showdown of Champions 2009.

The tennis stars were at Pavilion KL this afternoon for a meet and greet autograph session.

As a tennis fan, of course I didn't want to miss this event.

I was a bit reluctant to go to KL at first because my office is just next to the shopping mall and I was really lazy to go all the way there on a public holiday!

I went anyway as I've promised to meet up with fellow blogger, Pueh Tian. You can read his take on this event here.

We were on the Speed Lane, a priority queue lane booked in advance through Firefly's Facebook fan page.

Of all the four girls, I would say that I love Dementieva the most! I've never met a player so friendly... she would look deep in your eyes, greet you and give you a big smile! *faint*

Overall, I'm happy that I attended this event.

Just that I wish the players' entrance can be a bit more organised and glamourous (just like the event's tagline - The Glam Slam :P)

And not that I don't like Jay Menon, but I think a guy announcer could have make a slight difference to this event :P

For those who are interested to check out the exhibition match, the event will take place tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday. Click here for event info.

All's Well That Ends Well

Richie accepted a TV appearance on the Canal + Le Grand Journal talk show.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) gave Richard Gasquet an early X'mas present by clearing him of drug charges.

The CAS dismissed appeals by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and International Tennis Federation (ITF), which wanted Gasquet banned for up to two years.

In his defense, Gasquet said he went to the nightclub with friends to see a French DJ perform after pulling out of the Miami Masters in Key Biscayne with a shoulder injury. He met a woman named Pamela there and kissed her several times.

The court said experts “agreed that the minute amount of cocaine could have been transferred in this manner.”

The verdict however was greeted with dismay by WADA and the ITF.


Earlier this week, Belgians Yanina Wickmayer and Xavier Malisse also have their suspension lifted.

They were banned
in November for breaking WADA regulations by failing to report their whereabouts for drug testing.

Neither of them failed a doping test.

Wickmayer claims she was not properly informed of the online reporting requirements for drug-testing that led to her ban.

Wickmayer and Malisse are cleared to play in tournaments by ITF while Gasquet is legally allowed to compete in tournaments.

If you're a tennis fan and Twitter user but do not know that Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka have joined the Twitter bandwagon, it's time to follow them @CaroWozniacki and @Vika7.

So far, the girls have twitpic-ed some really hawt photos as well as some pretty interesting updates too e.g. Wozniacki got an invitation to the American Embassy to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger and Azarenka revealing her 'betting habit' :D

He was spotted with his new haircut in Douarnenez, France.

Rewind: Unseen before footage from the Malaysian Open '09


I had too much free time last weekend so I decided to put some of the unused footage clips from the Malaysian Open back in September into some sort of a music video.

As usual, I appreciate off court a lot, so you'll only find off court footage in this MV.
