Is the redhead in Andy's box, Connor's daughter Aubrey? I know Aubrey is redheaded, but I haven't seen a photo of her since she was little.

Neither of Connor's kids ever played any competitive tennis, which I found odd, but I heard that Connor's wife totally put the kibosh on that.

He married the wrong girl :p

Anyway, it's funny how some people marry others and don't want their kids following in the same footsteps.

How many kids does Jimmy have? How old are they?

He has two kids, a girl and boy. Aubrey ought to be about 22 and his son, Brett, should be in his late twenties, I'm not sure of his exact age. Jimmy married the 1976 Playmate of the Year, Patty (forgot her last name); she very foxy. After Brett was born and was about three years old, Jimmy's Mom tried to step in and take over to 'train' him as a tennis champion and Patty said 'No way.'

If the redhead in the box is Aubrey, she grew up to be adorable. She looks like the 80s singer Tiffany.

No mere coincidence, a few days earlier there was this article:

Federer, Woods excel side by side
(09-09) 04:00 PDT New York -- The tennis comparisons don't work so well these days, so Roger Federer has joined the company of Tiger Woods. That seems to be the only way to properly illustrate his effect on fellow players, and on history.

Federer, who will meet Russia's Nikolay Davydenko in the U.S. Open semifinals today, willingly joins the discussion. He said last week that, like Tiger, he's not so interested in dominating a certain opponent. It's more about testing himself, discovering the absolute ceiling of his talent, then sitting back to discover how it looks historically.

James Blake was in a whimsical mood after being driven off Ashe Stadium by Federer on Thursday night, saying -- to the surprise of many -- that Federer has surpassed Michael Jordan as "the best athlete of our time." That's an argument for another day, and perhaps a rather brief one if you don't believe golfers are legitimate athletes. Blake did have some interesting remarks, though, about Woods.

"I think Federer has surpassed Tiger," Blake said. "Not to take anything away from him, because he's an unbelievable golfer. But if you put him in a match-play situation, the kind of thing where it's one bad day and you're out, he'd be up against what we have to do every single week. All these tournaments Roger wins -- that means he can't have one bad day. Not to mention that Roger has to be out there for four hours, running, as opposed to walking while carrying one club (laughter). To me, you can't compare anything to what Roger is doing. Not even Jordan. And I am by far the biggest Michael Jordan fan I know. I've had both bedrooms in my house painted Carolina blue."

From this corner, only one theory is an absolute. We so often engage in old-school recollection, firmly believing that we'll never see anyone quite like Willie Mays, Jim Brown, Bob Hayes or Joe Montana. With Woods and Federer, you get the feeling that this is the most talented man in the history of the sport, that we're watching the pinnacle right now. It's not often that nostalgia lurks in the present.

Tread carefully

Heard some talk in New York this week about Lou Piniella and his possible interest in the Giants' managing job. He's an East Coast guy, and would prefer a spring-training site in Florida, but his options appear to be limited (Charlie Manuel, once under heavy fire in Philadelphia, may be able to keep his job, and Toronto will probably rehire the beleaguered John Gibbons). A return to Seattle is an option, if the Mariners want to spend the money, but Piniella is close to Giants GM Brian Sabean and one of his assistants, Dick Tidrow, from their days in the Yankees organization. It would be an excellent choice ... One thing the Giants have to realize as they entertain the insane notion of bringing Barry Bonds back for another season: An internally hired manager (such as pitching coach Dave Righetti) could hang with Bonds. A high-profile outsider like Piniella wouldn't tolerate the baggage ... Everyone's groveling in fool's gold when it comes to Bonds. They don't seem to get it. Sure, it's great to see him get hot at the right time; nobody turns away when he steps to the plate. But the Giants need to be honest with their fans and engineer a complete financial housecleaning, not insult them by saying, in essence, "We don't think our park is all that great. We don't think you'll come out here without Bonds." Chasing Henry Aaron's record? That's a complete joke. Here in San Francisco, watching Bonds stagger toward a record with STEROIDS written all over it, we'd be desperately puffing on Camels in the smokers' section, resistant to the franchise's good health.

Let's hope Armando Benitez wrote his ticket out of town with his disgraceful behavior toward manager Felipe Alou (refusing to give him the ball) in Chicago last weekend. It was hardly the first example of his flippant demeanor in public; Alou should have told him to keep right on walking, right into retirement ... So Marco Materazzi, the Italian soccer player who was head-butted by Zinedine Zidane in the World Cup final, says he triggered the incident by insulting Zidane's sister. That's his version, anyway, and probably inaccurate. I don't trust anyone whose first priority, at that stage of the biggest match of his life, decides that some pathetic trash-talking is his best option. As for Zidane, it really doesn't matter what was said; that head-butt goes down with the dumbest stunts ever pulled in a major sporting event ... Loved the episode in the Steelers-Dolphins game when coach Nick Saban threw a red flag, signifying a replay challenge, and the refs didn't see it. Beautiful; totally exposes the folly of the system. Next up: Instead of throwing a flag, coaches have to do a little dance. Perhaps something Celtic, or an Irish jig. But no jitterbugs.

It seemed to me like an arranged PR thing. It's not like Roger and Tiger are close enough friends for Tiger to be in the player's box which is usually where the coaches/family/close friends sit. If Tiger wanted to watch the US Open final he could have gotten a regular seat like other celebrities. I don't know but it doesn't seem cool to me; rather pretentious instead from Federer's part.

ive heard some grumblings about Woods in Fed's box, i mean honestly :rolleyes:
doesnt mean anything, if Fed followed Woods at a golf tourney and not the other 150+ guys (including a swiss player playing) would that also be a big issue lol.
today was just an awesome champ admiring the work of another, he had been on record in the past saying how much he liked tennis and Fed.
even though today was the first time they met, the fact that they had this 'deal' of Woods coming if Fed reached the final shows they have been in contact with each other before.

NYTimes

Even though the Swiss Federer was playing an American, Woods chose not to adopt a neutral court position, sitting in the front row with his wife, Elin, alongside Vavrinec. He cheered Federer's winners and remained generally silent for Roddick's.

"I didn't really notice u ntil they showed him, you know," Roddick said of Woods. "But you know, he's a big boy. That's his decision."

This is because Tiger is very famous athlete and should be supporting him. I do think Tiger will take some media licks for it tomorrow.

andy's post match interview indicated he was puzzled/not happy about Tiger's presence in Roger's box. Don't understand why. This is not DC, it is not US against Switzerland. I mean, Gwen Stefani, Mary Joe's husband, and other Americans have sat in Roger's box previously.Yeah, Davenport.

It seemed to me like an arranged PR thing. It's not like Roger and Tiger are close enough friends for Tiger to be in the player's box which is usually where the coaches/family/close friends sit. If Tiger wanted to watch the US Open final he could have gotten a regular seat like other celebrities. I don't know but it doesn't seem cool to me; rather pretentious instead from Federer's part.I wouldn't necessarily say it's pretentious from Fed's part, but I hate all the iconic crap around people in sports. Tiger sitting in Fed's box was the most commercialized union since Britney and Justin.

Eh...I highly doubt it was Roger's idea that Tiger sit in his box. From the sounds of it he was surprised Tiger actually showed up. It was more likely the USTA or Roger's handlers idea that he sit there.

And honestly...Tiger looked bored most of the time he was shown.

It's a falacy to say TIGER WOODS has to cheer for the American, Roddick... Why can't he sit in Roger's box? Some people are saying it's a disgrace towards Andy.. Two dominating sportsman respect each other and met today for the first time. Is it wrong for some support for Federer? The Amercian crowd favors Andy by the way. He's obviously a fan of Roger not Andy, I don't blame him. I thought it was nice to see Tiger and Roger meet.

Actually, it would be more appropriate if Roddick had Phil Mickelson in his box the next time he played Roger.

Hey All,

I for one, saw nothing wrong w/Tiger being in Roger's box. For two years now - some have been likening Rog to Tiger. And some have already brought up their sponsor and management companies. Roger and Tiger spoke about it and both agreed to it - so - bring it on. I loved it.

They are trying to make tennis more global and big/prime time - and what better way than to show all kind of celeberties in the stands for the men's finale? One day - they might even move it to prime time. They would have shown Mirka numerous times - anyway. It was a big deal that Tiger was in Fed's box to the sports world and media. They eat that kind of stuff up. The Tiger has won 5 titles in a row. And Rog has won 3 back to back Wimby's and US Open's. So it was all good and deserves a thumbs up - IMO.

Did I mention that I loved it? I was like '"Hot da@n!" Go on Tiger! Go on Roger! LOL!

TIGER HAILS FEDERER'S LATEST FEAT
By Mark Garrod, PA Sport Golf Correspondent

Tiger Woods admits he has become close friends with US Open champion Roger Federer in recent times.

The American golfing star was on hand to witness Federer's ninth tennis grand slam win at the age of just 25 over Andy Roddick on Sunday, and admits he has a lot of respect for the Swiss world number one.

The two spoke before and after Federer's four-set win and Woods commented: "It's neat to have a person you can talk to. The things he is dealing with and I am going through are comparable.

"We are a lot of things in common and I think we are going to be friends for a long time."

Woods however puts German racing driver Michael Schumacher ahead of both himself and Federer when assessing just who is the world's current leading sportsman.

"I have to say Michael for his consistency over the years," said the 30-year-old American on arriving in England ahead of the HSBC World Matchplay.

"He's performed year-in, year-out in a globally-watched sport under immense pressure.

"It's hard to separate yourself in any sport, but it's so much easier to do in an individual sport. There's nobody to rely on - you play well as a individual you are going to win.

"What you are seeing with Roger, myself and Michael is that we have been consistent over the years. You have to bring it each and every time you compete."

It fascinated me to learn that Roger was amazed to find that Tiger echoed his feeling - understood it, related to it - when at times on court, he felt invincible - like he can do no wrong. Made me realize that it can get very lonely at the top. To have someone – even on a different mountain top – to share that view with, must be reassuring.

OMG!!!!!! :eek: Tiger just DISSED Roger, after just witnessing his greatness in the USO final, by calling a Formula One racer—a guy who sits in a car!—a greater athlete than Roger. That's a slap in the face if I saw one. Bigger than the one he gave to Roddick by sitting in Roger's player box. What a two-faced traitor. Adam, how could you like this guy? :fiery:

[B]My wife Elin and I attended the U.S. Open tennis finals on Sunday in New York and had a blast. We were guests of Roger Federer, who I finally met in person before the match against Andy Roddick. We both represent Nike and are represented by IMG, so we’ve communicated before. He’s an extraordinary athlete and a great champion. About two weeks ago he invited me to the finals – if he made it – and I said sure. I’ve been to other tennis tournaments before, but never the U.S. Open. I can’t believe how hard those guys hit the ball. I always enjoy watching the best athletes in the world compete. Afterward, I congratulated both players in the locker room and hung out for a while.[\B]
