This was a pleasant surprise to see. I mean, seriously. One doesn't come across such great creativity everyday. Zuzanna Szyszak creates tennis and animated magic.

The big "W" Wimbledon is upon us. One day in the books and already some great action. Naturally a lot of the favorites(Djokovic,Williams, Wawrinka etc.) got to move on.

There are other days when you're on the opposite side looking in. That just comes with the territory of sports. There's a winner and a loser.
