Hey folks. Just got word of the 2010 BNP Paribas Open have been announced! It looks like we’ll be seeing Justine Henin, Carlos Moya, and David Nalbandian competing at this years tennis tournament. After Henin’s run at the Australian Open (reaching the finals and losing to Serena Williams), we might see her make some tennis waves this year at the smaller tournament – the pressure is seemingly less this time around for the Belgian, so we are very excited to see what she brings to the tennis court.
As far as Moya and Nalbandian are concerned, well we all know what Nalbandian is capable of on the tennis court – he is/was a master of the forehand and his transition tennis game, however, he has recently had a hip surgery so we’re not sure if he’s going to perform like he did last year (losing an epic quarterfinal tennis match against Rafael Nadal), so that will be interesting to see how that all plays out. Moya on the other hand, had pretty much disappeared in early 2009 – he announced an indefinite hiatus from tennis – until the beginning of the 2010 tennis season, where he had some piss poor matches. Where does that leave him for this tennis tournament??? Basically if he makes it past the 3rd round, we’d be extremely surprised.
So those are the announced wildcard entries for the tennis tournament coming up in a couple of weeks, we’ll see what becomes of them. We do wish them good luck in their tennis matches.
