Paul Menard, Yani Tseng and More
Menard wins NASCAR Spring Cup, Yani Tseng wins British Open, Plaxico Burress signs with Jets, Serena Williams wins Bank of the West Classic
5 years after his previous victory (06 Nationwide series), Paul Menard managed to acquired his second overall win, this time at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, and even though the racer has many critics, he remained reserved about the result as he said that “We’re winners in Sprint Cup. That’s the big deal. To do it at Indy, even bigger deal,” he said. “Can’t change people’s opinions. They’re going to say what they want to say. That’s fine with me. We’ll celebrate this. We’ll enjoy it.”
Yani Tseng wins British Open
If there were any doubts concerning the superiority of Yani Tseng as the best female golf player in the world, those were all cleared out after the Taiwanese acquired her fifth major by winning the Women’s British Open at Carnoustie. The 22 years old Tseng won quite comfortably by 4 shots over Brittany Lang from the USA, while Sophie Gustafson from Sweden and Amy Yang from South Korea finished third and fourth respectively. “I feel so good, this is a great place to win my second British Open because there is so much history attached to the course.” She said after the win.
Plaxico Burress signs with Jets
Since keeping Braylon Edwards on the team was too expensive concerning the Jets expectations of –re-signing Antonio Cromartie, they decided to sign Plaxico Burress on a 1-year, $3 million (guaranteed) contract instead of Edwards as they saw in the veteran wide receiver someone that is going to be quite motivated to play professional football as the 34 year-old Burress spent the last 2 years of his life in jail (due an incident with a gun), and now the former Giants player needs to prove his new team that he is worth the cash they paid for him.
Serena Williams wins Bank of the West Classic
It is the first WTA Tour title Serena Williams wins after coming back from a one-year long injury, and the veteran tennis player could not be happier as she conquered the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford, California. The win (the 38 WTA Tour Title of her career) allowed Williams to escalate ninety positions at the world ranking, placing her at 79, and it seems that the victory also helped to stimulate her as she mentioned that “I’m taking every tournament much more seriously now. Not that I didn’t before, but now even more so.”
