Could you imagine that the sports that you play could make you a millionaire? Sports were once something you do to relax, have a rest from a daily routine. It was never considered a serious job. Let us take a closer look at to what sports offer other than just some physical training and a break from reality.

As anyone playing tennis regularly can tell you, the sport can get expensive rather quickly, especially if you are competitive. Fees from instructors, joining clubs, and playing in tournaments can all add up, and that’s before tennis gear and apparel costs are figured in.

If you are going to invest that much in the sport, you owe it to yourself to purchase quality tennis products. This means buying tennis gear from a reputable brand like HEAD. Whether buying tennis racquets or bags, HEAD products are among the best the industry has to offer.

Eugenie Bouchard1

I don’t watch tennis at all, but I should probably start.  Randomly came across this 19 year old smoke show via a follower’s Twitter post.  Eugenie Bouchard is up there with the likes of Maria Sharapova and Anna Kournikova in the looks department, and is currently the 31st ranked female singles player in the world.  They say she’s the “next big thing” in tennis, and if that gets her more TV time I sure hope she is.  Check out a gallery of Eugenie Bouchard photos after the jump:

RogerFederer

We’ve all heard it before: all [insert race here] people look alike.  YouTube personality Donnie Does put this theory to the test in China when he got dressed up like Roger Federer and had a couple “body guards” escort him around.  The results are hilarious.  Check out the video after the jump:

French Open Flare

Rafael Nadal’s 8th French Open title was a breeze, but it didn’t come with out the “flare for the dramatics”.  In the 2nd set, up 5-1 and serving for the set, a lunatic jumped out of the crowd with no shirt on, a white mask, and started wielding a road flare.

Check out the crazy video after the jump.

Indianapolis Colts v New York Giants

Yesterday was National Sibling Day. As the oldest of three kids, I know the importance of having great siblings. Sports have seen its fair share of sibling rivalries over the years, so in honor of National Sibling Day, here are my top 10 sibling combinations I’ve seen in my lifetime. (I’m only 19 so if I miss some great sibling duos from the past I apologize.)

It all started in 1999 with the arcade game, but truly exploded in 2000 on the Sega Dreamcast.  Virtua Tennis was one of my favorite games as a kid, not because I’m a tennis fan (spoiler alert, I’m not), but because of the ease of gameplay and the heated battles that would ensue.  If you were lucky enough to have a Dreamcast, a system truly ahead of its time, there’s a good chance you owned the original.

11 years later Sega released it’s 4th installment of the game with updated players and some new features that didn’t exist back in the Dreamcast days.  I have no idea what features are updates from Virtua Tennis 2 and 3 (nor do I care to look them up), but 4 can be played in 3D if you are rich enough to own a 3D TV and features a motion play option for use with the PlayStation Move controller.

The Players:

ATP Players

WTA Players

Legends

Bosses

  • Indonesia King
  • Indonesia Duke

As you can see, almost all of today’s tennis stars are playable, and even a few legends too.  You can even create your own player in the game’s World Tour mode and use that player in Arcade and Exhibition modes as well.  I was wondering why only Venus Williams made the cut and no Serena, but then realized digitally reproducing this body would warrant an NC-17 rating and would require several additional programmers and graphic designers
