Sunday Sports Wrap - July 5, 2009



Wimbledon: Roger Federer is fighting it out with Andy Roddick right now for the men's final. Yesterday's women's final was awesome, pitting Venus vs. Serena. The younger Williams sister prevailed.

Golf: Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim are paired up for round four of the AT&T Invitational. The two shared the lead at the start of the day and many hope that the event ends up in a shootout between them. In fact, there has been speculation that AK is next in line for greatness. All said, the two Californians should be fun to watch! I'll have to catch the updates on my phone or something because it is just too nice to stay inside today for me!

Surfing:
Okay, this is a really great shopping weekend - whatever you are in the market for. I scored a brand new surfboard yesterday including all accessories (like a sweet cover) for a very nice price. I'll have new pics and stories up using it in the very near future. It's a bit shorter than I'm used to and it's got a bit more of a point to it as well (I usually have a fish or an egg). This should be fun.

Today in Sports History:


1946 - The bikini made its debut during an outdoor fashion show at the Molitor Pool in Paris.

1997 - Martina Hingis, 16, became the youngest Wimbledom singles champion in 110 years as she beat Jana Novotna in the women's final.

2002
