Who am I?

I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 1/27/2013

Some of the individual tour sports are starting to heat up for 2013, and this week was the first Major of the year for any.  Novak Djokovic did something to no other men's tennis player of the modern era has done.  Win three straight Australian Opens.  The 25-year-old Serbian force (who seems like he's been on the scene for 10 years) has established himself as the most dominant force in men's tennis.  He's won 3 of the last 5 majors (only non-wins were Federer winning Wimbledon and Murray defeating him to win U.S. Open).  Djokovic won 4 matches in 8 days, defeating Wawrinka in an epic match last Sunday (5 sets, 12-10 last set, 5:02 minutes total), then defeating Berdych, Ferrer, and Murray.  Djokovic will be in the hunt for every major this year, will be a tough out for anyone.  And is a deserving, Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
