Djokovic, Azarenka Defend Australian Open Titles

Novak Djokovic | Prominent Tickets

The Australian Open has just crowned two new tennis champs, as Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka captured individual men’s and women’s titles, respectively, over the weekend. The No. 1 ranked Djokovic outlasted Andy Murray in the final, with a 6-7 (2), 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 victory. The first two sets were hotly contested, lasting over two hours, but Murray seemed to wear down at that point, and Djokovic was able to pull out the win. Djokovic made history with his victory, becoming the first man in the Open era to earn three straight Australian Open titles. With six Grand Slam titles now to his name, Djokovic should continue to move up the list of all-time tennis greats, as he will not turn 26 until later this year. One of his main goals is undoubtedly capturing his first French Open title this spring, as it has eluded him previously. Continue reading

NFC Wins High Scoring Pro Bowl

Pro Bowl Tickets | Prominent Tickets

Fans with Pro Bowl tickets were treated to a shootout in Honolulu, as the NFC dominated the AFC, winning by a final margin of 62-35. Five turnovers by the AFC killed their chances of keeping the game close, as the NFC raced out to a 31-14 halftime lead. Vikings’ tight end Kyle Rudolph earned MVP honors after catching five passes for 122 yards and a touchdown.  Seattle’s Russell Wilson also had a great game for the NFC behind center, tossing three touchdown passes in the third quarter to further pad the lead Drew Brees and Eli Manning helped build for him. On the AFC side, Bengals’ WR A.J. Green hauled in three touchdown passes, and LB Derrick Johnson returned an interception 42 yards for a score. Perhaps the best moment of the game came when Packers center Jeff Saturday, who is retiring this offseason, switched sides for a play in order to snap the ball to Broncos’ QB Peyton Manning.

Rondo Injury Shakes Up All-Star Roster

Rajon Rondo | NBA All Star Tickets

The Celtics were dealt a devastating blow this past weekend, as star point guard Rajon Rondo suffered a torn ACL in his right knee. While Boston now must scramble to replace their floor general and best playmaker, the Eastern Conference All-Star team now has a big hole to fill in its starting lineup as well. With Rondo done for the year, either Kyrie Irving or Jrue Holiday, who were each named to the All-Star reserve team last week, will presumably step into Rondo’s place in the starting lineup. Both have played very well this season, and either would be worthy of the starting nod now that Rondo is sidelined. Continue reading

Knicks’ Chandler Deserves All-Star Nod

Tyson Chandler | Knicks Tickets

With the NBA All-Star Game just on the horizon, fans with Knicks tickets are anxious to see if any of their favorite players are heading to Houston for the marquee event of the regular season. Forward Carmelo Anthony has already been named a starter, as the six-time All-Star is in the midst of one of his best seasons in the league. However, he is not the only member of the Knicks deserving of a spot on the roster, as center Tyson Chandler should be an easy selection for one reserve spot. It’s hard to believe, but the 12-year veteran has never been an All-Star, despite consistently ranking as one of the best interior defenders in the league. In fact, not only did Chandler win NBA Defensive Player of the Year honors a season ago, he was also named to the All-NBA third team, and has appeared on the All-Defensive team list for two seasons.
