Grand Slam Gal’s tennis snippets and tidbits from the week.
1. Serbia Wins Davis Cup, Heads are Shaved, but who gets the Hair?
Serbia beat France to become only the second unseeded nation to win the Davis Cup. A great effort, given that they haven’t really been around the men’s tennis world for all that long.
So to celebrate, all the boys got their heads shaved to follow through on a bet that was made at the start of the season.
What I’m wondering is who gets the hair? (and there was quite a lot of hair to spare)
- Did the Ball Boys have to clean up it up?
- Did the crowd pocket it as a souvenir?
- Will be auctioned off for charity?
- Or will it be given to the next team to win the Davis Cup? (perhaps inside the cup?)
What do you think? Let us know by completing the poll to the right, or leave a comment if you have another suggestion.
Watch the vid to see Novak Djokovic in all his Number 1 glory.

2. Serena Williams Died Digitally (But Kept Tweeting to Remind Everyone She Was Dead)
Along with some other celebrities, Serena died to help raise $1 Million to fight aids, encouraging people to donate to bring her back.
That was a nice thing to do but looking at her tweets it seems she was alive to remind people she was dead, oh, and to promote an appearance showing off her collection of clothes.
This is my favourite tweet from @serenawilliams, while she was digitally dead:
will be on HSN: December 7th 12am-2am 10am-12pm 2pm-3pm 5pm-7pm 10-11pm but will not be tweeting until the#BuyLife Campaign is over!
3. Sam Stosur wins the Tennis Gold Logie
Sam Stosur is officially Australia’ Premier Tennis Player of the Year.
Sam is currently world number six and having reached the French Open final this year, she is our best chance in a while at having an Australian win the Aus Open final.
On the night, Sam looked good enough to go to the Logies, as you can tell by these pictures from her blog.
Until next time
