Under The Weather

For the past week I haven't been feeling 100%...and lastnight I think it went into full gear. Today I'm off work and in bed. I haven't slept so much in a very long time. Why is it we always get sick on those days we really can't afford to miss? 

So, my day will be filled with tons of tissues!  At least I can take advantage of this time of rest to watch the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows NY

There has been tons of news going with this year's US Open. First, lets check out Melanie Oudin's creations! Adidas approached her to create a pair of tennis sneakers and to choose one word that would be placed on the shoe.  Take a look for yourself! I think they are pretty cute!

Next,  Victoria Azarenka passed out on court. Seriously! She is walking to serve and the next you know she slowly goes down. How scary for everyone there! Click HERE to see a video clip of it. It turns out she had a mild concussion prior to her match and her symptoms became worse, seeing double, headache and feeling dizzy. scary! They lifted her up into a wheelchair and supported her head as they rolled her out.

Early eliminations this year for Andy Roddick and Melanie Oudin are tough to hear! These players prepare all year for this tournament and to be eliminated early on has to be incredibly difficult to take! 

So, here I am on the couch getting my R & R! I hope I can kick this this infection super fast! My Mother is flying in next Wednesday and I have to be in good form!
