What happened is that the stifling temperatures in Melbourne caused a heat bubble filled with air to form under the surface of the court. It’s the same concept that causes crust bubbles to develop on edges of pizza slices. As the Mirror reported, workers came out and drilled two small holes in the court, which let out the air. Order, and gravity, was restored.
This tournament gets more entertaining/bizarre by the day. What’s next, an American advancing past the quarterfinals?
For those not familiar with the Lakers guard, that is not a lesbian wedding announcement. Sharapova is of course the extremely loud tennis player who grunts in between points. From the AP via the USTA website, “Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic says he’s engaged to marry Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova. ‘We are engaged and are both really happy,’ Vujacic said Thursday night before the Lakers’ exhibition game against Golden State. ‘It’s good and now we can focus on other things.’ The agent for three-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova confirmed the news in an e-mail to The Associated Press. Vujacic said he proposed on the one-year anniversary of their first meeting at a friend’s barbecue.
How many times do you think the Lakers players have begged him to know if she is loud in the sack?
