The past week of women’s tennis has been thrilling to watch. From the quarter-final match between Sloane Stephens and #13 Stevaslova to the semifinal match between unranked Stephens and #3 Venus Williams. This semifinal was amazing this year. First of all, all four women were American. When does that ever happen? And secondly, three of the four women had never had opportunities like this before. Stephens managed to, after an amazing last set, beat Williams and advance to the final for the first time. And Madison Keys blew past Coco Vandeweghe as if her competitor wasn’t even good. She had so much focus and control that it was truly incredible to watch. She also has advanced to the final for the first time in her career as well.
This is very heartening for American tennis to see two Americans in the final of the US Open. Not only is it a great accomplishment for our country but Venus and Serena Williams are on their way out, whether I like it or not, and I’ve always wondered when they’re gone who will take their place? Now there are three talented American female tennis players who, if they continue like this, can take the tennis world by storm and I’m just so happy. Of course, this could just be a lucky year and this could possibly never happen again but I’m loving it while it lasts.

Once again there has been another blowout in the ACC Tournament. Wake Forest ended up winning by 14 points with the final score being 92-78. Yes, it was that kind of blowout. Tomorrow they will be going against Florida State and that should be a lot better than this game was. Do I think they have a chance to get to the quarterfinals? Yes, I do. The way they played today was very decent. They weren’t sloppy and the team played cohesively. That’s always important if a team wants to advance in this tournament.
Next up Pitt will be facing off against Georgia Tech. I hope this game will be a little more exciting than the last game.
This is a very entertaining game so far. Wake Forest is trying to get to the second round but Boston College is not shirking away. They are on a fourteen game losing streak but like I said in my earlier post teams in the ACC, whether they’re bad or good, are always tough to beat in this unpredictable conference. If Wake Forest manages to get through this challenging round there is a sliver of hope for them getting to the third round.
They are beating Boston College by six points with a score of 44 points. Let’s hope they can hold onto their slim lead. Make sure you return after the game is over to see my summary of the game’s greatest moments.
This was an underwhelming game. NC State was completely outmatched in every aspect. It’s a shame they weren’t able to make it any further but I must congratulate Clemson for their win today. Tomorrow they’ll be going against #14 Duke and according to how they played today they probably won’t be able to beat the Blue Devils.
Next up Wake Forest plays Boston College. I’ll see you at the half.
Clemson is winning by double digits with a score of 39 points. NC State unfortunately can’t find their groove and only managed to accumulate a score of 28 points. The last minute of the half was very fun to watch with NC State trying to close the gap. Clemson managed to only extend their lead with an astounding block and a quick three that really drove it home how determined they are to win this game. Will NC State be able to bounce back? Probably not. This is basketball though and anything can happen in this amazing sport.
I’ll be posting again when either Clemson or NC State wins. Enjoy the rest of the game!
It’s a week into March and men’s college basketball is zooming towards March Madness. Before the fantastic two week tournament there are of course the tournaments for each conference. The thing that makes the ACC so tough is the unpredictability. The worst team in the ACC, if they’re having a good day, can sometimes beat much better teams. It happens all the time and that’s what makes the ACC tournament so fun to watch. Of course everyone can say UNC will probably get to the championship or maybe a team like Florida State but sometimes their dreams can be dashed by an unsuspected underdog who’s maybe the worst in the ACC.
All week I’m going to be posting live throughout the ACC tournament so if you want to know any updates or maybe my opinion on the outcomes of each of these games stay tuned to my blog.
Right now the first game has NC State playing Clemson. There’s a little over three minutes left in the first half and Clemson is winning with a score of 27 points. NC State has 23 points at the moment. I will write about how I think the game is going so far during halftime. You won’t want to miss it.
