April is the time of year when a whole bunch of sports take place at once. It is really an exciting time. Here are the events I’ll be watching this weekend:
Saturday–10:30am–WTA Tennis–Sony Ericsson Open Women’s Final–(8) Victoria Azarenka–Belarus vs. (16) Maria Sharapova–Russia–CBS–The three time Grand Slam champion and fiancee to New Jersey Net Sasha Vujacic (Sharapova) takes on the Belarussian that has strong connections to Oiler goalie Nikolai Khabibulin (Khabibulin helped Azarenka get to the United States) in Miami. Head-to-head the two are tied at two. Azarenka has won the Sony Ericsson Open before, 6-3, 6-1 over Serena Williams in 2009. Sharapova meanwhile is shooting for her 23rd title. She has finished n the finals of Miami twice in the past, but lost to Kim Clijsters in 2005 and Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2006.
