The Best and the Worst of the Grammys Red Carpet

The Red Carpet for the Grammys in New York yesterday was like a circus. I get that for the Grammys artists, models and actresses tend to want to bring out their artistic side or style, but I think the ladies went overboard. It was hard to narrow down the worst looks but I will give you some highlights.

The Men had a few outcasts, but in general, they were not too shabby.

Let’s start with the Worst Dressed Ladies.

Black gone Wrong!

Too Much and Too Little!

I get that Sza, new artist on the block wanted to make a statement but sometimes less is more. The hair out along with all that was hanging off the dress was just too much.

Kimberly Schlapman was not Pretty in Pink. Is that a Hippo face on her stomach?

Tina Campbell in Red Velvet. Not bad, but the carpet is already red. So did she have to wear red shoes too?! Mix it up a little.

Tiffany Reid was way too simple. The Grammys isn’t a Birthday party.

Worst Dressed Lady!

So hard to choose, but out of these 3 ladies I give the edge to Pink because she should know better.

Well Dressed Ladies

Miley Cyrus rocked her pants suit and Cardi B cleaned up well.

I hesitated to put Coco and Janelle in this category, but with a second look I appreciated their get up. Coco’s dress could be looked at as borderline raunchy, but if you have it flaunt it and she flaunted that hourglass figure well, accentuated with pink lips. Janelle almost looked like she should have been in a bullpen in Spain, but always carries herself with so much poise and I think she pulled off the crazy design Dolce & Gabbana had in mind.

Best Dressed Lady

Lady Gaga in Armani Privé!

Some persons may have thought it was too much, but I think she made a statement in this dress and the right one. So couture!

These Artists are so Unique they can pull off just about anything!

Worst Dressed Men

I think Lil Uzi took the cake. I can’t even describe what he was wearing.

Gold Link was the rendition of Pirates of the Caribbean gone wrong and Sam Smith looked like the tallest Leprechaun I’ve ever seen.

G.O.A.T, Roger Federer Wins the Australian Open for the Men and his 20th Major Title!

20180128_064152-1

Roger Federer’s Australian Open 2018 winning moment after he had to wait on Cilic’s challenge, and Federer’s ball was in!

Roger Federer has defended and won his 6th Australian Open Title and 20th Grand Slam Title! The G.O.A.T beat Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1.

1st set

The 1st set was all about Roger Federer, who took the 1st set 6-2.

2nd set

Cilic fought back to win the 2nd set by tiebreak, 7-6.

3rd set

In the 3rd set Cilic was distracted and angered by the fact that it took over an hour and a half for him to get back racquets that he sent to be restrung. He got them back in the middle of the 3rd set, but it didn’t seem to make much of a difference. Federer’s serve was on point and Federer cruised to win the 3rd set 6-3.

4th set

Federer went up quickly to 2-0 in the 4th set and looked like he was on cruise control to win the title, then Sparta came out. Sparta meaning the ‘warface’ of Marin Cilic. He has one of the meanest ‘warfaces’ in Men’s Tennis.

Federer’s serve fell apart to as low as 36% for his 1st serve percentage. Federer also started to lose rallies to Cilic’s strong forehand and showed his age with slow movement.

5th set

Federer had a shaky start to the 1st set to fight off break point, but held serve. The crowd really started to get into it and showed clear support for veteran, Roger Federer.

Cilic was moving better and Roger then knew he had to fight if he was going to win this title.

Federer then broke Cilic shortly after a bad call by the Umpire on Cilic’s serve to make it a double-fault, giving Federer the advantage that he converted. He went on to hold serve to go up 3-0 and Cilic served to get on the board to make it 1-3. Federer got back his 1st serve rhythm in the nick of time to go up 4-1 with an easy game and fought hard to break Cilic to get to 5-1. Federer then broke Cilic and it was all over.

Great Final! Well played Cilic and Congrats to Roger Federer! He has now joined the Ladies in the 20+ Major Grand Slam Titles Club. They finally got a Gentleman in there.

Wozniacki Wins the Australian Open and her 1st Grand Slam Title!

20180127_080230-1

The moment when Caroline Wozniacki won her 1st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last night.

The moment of Wozniacki’s tennis life occurred last night! She surely proved Suga wrong. After being on the circuit for 12 years with tough losses, she finally came through in an epic 3-setter versus Simona Halep and won 7-6, 3-6, 6-4.

What made the difference last night? Wozniacki played a smart game, had a strong serve and went for every ball, consistently getting it back over the net. It set the tone early in the match giving her the initial break for her to go up 2-0 in the 1st set.

Halep came back strong to make the 1st set a tiebreak but still lost it. She had to work hard to earn the 2nd set. She does well when she has to fight from behind.

What was the game changer?

Even though Halep took a medical time out during the match, in the 3rd set, Halep was up 4-3 and Wozniacki took a medical time out to strap up her left knee. Halep probably had too much time to think. Wozniacki came back from the medical time out and broke her to make it 4-all in the 3rd and held her serve to go up 5-4. Then at 5-4 (15-15) with Halep on serve, the umpire made a horrible call to overrule the linesman who called Wozniacki’s ball out. The umpire said that they had to replay the point. Halep challenged the call and was right, so was the linesman, because the ball was indeed out. Halep went up 30-0 with a chance to get closer to 5-all. But emotions of anger probably set in and she followed up that play with a double-fault, making it 30-30. Then Wozniacki won an amazing rally for match point and followed through with it to win her first Grand Slam title!

Congratulations to both ladies for putting it all out there. It was obviously a devastating loss for Simona Halep who was clearly physically drained from her hard road to the finals and after what was like a final with Angelique Kerber in the semis. Halep still has some growing to do emotionally. She is not a different Simona just yet. Hopefully we will see her follow through in more finals in the future.

The women’s field without Serena Williams is definitely stepping up and it’s great to see.

Congrats again to Caroline Wozniacki for never giving up and winning her 1st Grand slam title and reclaiming World #1!

Who is Still In It to Win It at the Australian Open?!

The Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis Tournament 2018

WOMEN

The ladies have been battling it out in some neck to neck matches. The focus has been on World #1, Simona Halep, former World #1, Angelique Kerber (21) and current World #2, Caroline Wozniacki.

Simona Halep has been struggling with a chronic ankle injury, but showed she was not backing out easily in the Quarterfinals after being down 3-0 in the 1st set to Karolína Plísková (6) and fighting back to win 6-3, 6-2.

Angelique Kerber (Photo: The Sun)

She then faced Angelique Kerber (21) in the Semifinals last night. Kerber has had a good run this Australian Open so far despite her inconsistencies in winning majors. She defeated huge contenders such as Maria Sharapova and Madison Keys (17).

On the other side of the draw, young Belgian, Elise Mertens had an impressive straight set win (6-4, 6-0) over Elina Svitolina (4). She has been a part of former Belgian Tennis Player and World #1, Kim Clijsters’ Tennis Camp. Kim has been texting her with encouragement for every match.

So who’s meeting in the Women’s Final?!

It will be Caroline Wozniacki (2) versus Simona Halep (1)! Whoever wins will win their 1st Grand Slam title and will be World #1.

Wozniacki’s Semifinal vs Mertens

Wozniacki tightened up towards the end of the match versus Mertens, up 6-3, 5-4 (30-0), then was brought to a tiebreak. She managed to dominate and win the tiebreak, thus the match, 6-3, 7-6 and is heading to her 3rd Grand Slam Final. Will the 3rd time be a charm?

Halep’s Semifinal vs Kerber

The Halep-Kerber Semifinal was epic!

Halep was quite solid versus Kerber until she was up 5-0 to serve out the first set and probably couldn’t believe she got there so fast. It looked like she started to think about it and handed Kerber 2 free points from double faults. Kerber picked up her game after that until Halep broke her to win the first set 6-3.

The 2nd set was a ding-dong battle even though Kerber was still plagued with unforced errors. With Halep looking slightly fresher and up 8-7, both had lost 2 match points until Halep lost a 3rd match point on Kerber’s serve and she kept pressing until she took full advantage of the 4th match point in the same game and won.

Date and Time of the Women’s Final

Saturday (Friday night) at 3:30am

Suga’s Prediction

Simona Halep has the reputation of choking in major matches, always coming close and losing it mentally and physically. However, she has stated there is a new Simona now and I believe her after the courage she showed versus the stubborn, Angelique Kerber.

I do not think Halep is giving up on this opportunity. I also doubt it will be a close or epic final. Suga calls Halep for the win.

MEN

Marin Čilić (6) reached to the Semifinals after World #1, Rafael Nadal retired in the 5th set agonized by a hip injury.

I like to refer to Čilić as Sparta. Whether he reached to the Semifinals by default or not, he is quite a fighter.

He played Kyle Edmund in the Semis.

On the other side of the draw lies the young, South Korean, Hyeon Chung. He is the first Korean to reach the Quarterfinals and the Semifinals.

Hyeon Chung (Photo: hindustantimes.com)

Chung sent former World #1, Novak Djokovic packing in the 4th round in straight sets. Djokovic expressed frustration with his chronic elbow injury.

Chung then went on to defeat Tennys Sandgren in the Quarterfinals who previously took out Dominic Thiem (5) in 5 sets.

Who does he meet next?

Screenshot_2018-01-24-15-46-24-1

Roger Federer (Photo: The Indian Express)

He will meet the G.O.A.T and current World #2, Roger Federer tonight at 3:30am. Roger previously defeated Tomáš Berdych (19) in straight sets.

Were there any Upsets and Who’s Already in the Men’s Final?!

Marin Čilić has booked his spot in the Final and will wait on the winner of the Chung-Federer Semifinal! No surprises there. Čilić beat beat Edmund 6-2, 7-6, 6-2.

Stay tuned!

Comments: Modern, new, cosy spot with seating upstairs and downstairs complemented by free Wifi. Tasty Breakfast and Lunch options. Some Breakfast Options are overpriced, but I am happy there were healthy options available for both Breakfast and Lunch. I was disappointed by the fact that I couldn’t get a simple Frappuccino. They had Frozays a.k.a syrup and ice cream. My wait was a quick 8 minutes for Lunch and the standard 15 minutes for Breakfast when they had a full house. Members of Staff were pleasant.

Mid-December last year.

Who owns it?

Restauranteurs Lisa-Gaye and Kirk Chin, owners of Fromage Gourmet Market & Bistro, Fromage Brasserie and the Oak Wine Bar.

What did I have?

Lunch:

I had the Bruschetta Chicken Panini ($900JMD +tx) with Wheat bread, Chicken, Basil Pesto, Mozzarella, Tomato and Balsamic aioli. It was fresh, filling and flavorful.

I also had a Parfait ($500JMD+tx) that included healthy, plain Greek Yoghurt.

I had the Smoked Salmon Bagel ($850JMD+tx) with lettuce, tomato, onion and cream cheese, Buttermilk Pancakes with Bacon ($600JMD+tx) and a Hazelnut Iced Coffee ($450JMD+tx).

I was disappointed that I didn’t get any capers with my Smoked Salmon Bagel, but I was satisfied since it was made fresh and it was tasty. I also enjoyed my Pancakes with Bacon.

What do they serve?

● Coffee, Tea, Smoothies, Shakes and other Beverages

● Breakfast, Salads, Soup, Sandwiches, Wraps, Paninis, Parfaits, Pastries, Snacks, and Dessert made fresh daily

After a horrible review from a Suga Bear late December last year, I gave Cafe Dolce some time and visited last Saturday and Sunday for Lunch and Breakfast respectively.

I was quite relieved I did not have her experience of an hour-long wait and poorly cooked food with a poor presentation. It was the total opposite for me. I am pleased to see that they seemed to have worked out their teething pains. If anyone had a distasteful experience there, I encourage you to revisit Cafe Dolce and I look forward to going back soon!
