Chic Poppe - Retiring

Pretty neat article about Chic Poppe on I'd have to agree, the guy was everywhere.

I'd see him at any major event I went to in Cincinnati. I'm pretty sure I saw him at the Thanksgiving Day Race. (He missed me for an interview though...)

Cincinnati Tennis Tournament Ladies Champion Robbed...

Anna Chakvetadze, winner of the 2007 Western & Southern Financial Groups Women's Open in Mason, Ohio, was robbed at gunpoint this week her home in Moscow.

See the article on here.

My wife and I met her this summer at the tournament. Super nice off the court, fiercely competitive on the court.
