What to Watch Sports Week – September 4 – September 10

Published

on

NFL football finally begins with a great matchup, along with US Open Tennis, a potential MLB playoff series, and some more playoff action for golf headlines the week of September 4.


Ana IvanovicSept. 10 – Now that most of the scrubs are out of the professional tennis’ last major of the year (along with some decent players as well), the intensity looks to ratchet up a bit going into week two of the US Open in New York. On the men’s side the top three players are still alive along with some surprises such as Donald Young and John Isner. On the women’s side the number one seed is still hanging on, but it still looks to be Serena Williams’ tournament to lose.


BreesSept. 8 – The official 2011 NFL football season begins with a great matchup on Thursday between the Saints and Packers. The Saints lost a shocker last year in the playoffs to the Seahawks, while the Packers look for a repeat title this year. Expect it to be a high scoring game as two of the league’s best quarterbacks dual it out at Lambeau Field. Players to watch: Aaron Rodgers and Marques Colston.


Sept. 7 – The postseason is inching closer in major league baseball and a potential playoff matchup in the Phillies and Braves is playing this week. The Phillies have the best starting pitching in the MLB hands down, while the Braves arguable have the best bullpen in the league. Players to watch: Ryan Howard and Dan Uggla.

Sept. 8 – The third event (of the four week playoffs known as the FedEx Cup) stops near Chicago for the BMW Championship. Only the top 70 golfers in the points standings advance to this tournament, which means some great golf action from potential players such as Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els.

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has come in for stiff criticism after it introduced a new dress code that forbids female golfers from sporting plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course.

Initial reactions were overwhelmingly negative, with Teen Vogue accusing the governing body’s policy of “slut-shaming” female players. The progressive and influential youth magazine also said the code sets players and women in general “way back”.

As of 17 July, the LPGA will crack down on athletic wear following a 2 July email to all players from LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman, which detailed an extensive list of clothing that will no longer be allowed on the course and at pro-am parties on the tour.
