I may be the baseball expert here at SI Kids but I am also a tennis fanatic. I always enjoy the Australian Open, The French Open and Wimbledon, but of all the majors, my favorite is the U.S. Open.

As the last grand slam of the year, it gives players a chance to make a statement and end on a high note. Read on for a quick guide to the five men and five women to pay attention to this year...

What do you do if you're a two-time NBA MVP stationed in Beijing, China (rebuilding a basketball court and hosting a coaching clinic), and you want to play a pick-up game without being noticed?

If you're Steve Nash... you go undercover (cue Jason Bourne theme!).

The Jordan Brand

This one's for all you Jordan die-hards out there.

On September 5, the Jordan Brand will pay tribute to the awesomness that is Michael Jordan by releasing the JORDAN MOMENTS COLLECTION, a three-pack of souped-up Jordans.

Each sneaker in the collection is tied to a different moment of Jordan's career: the Air Jordan High Moments (left) is a modified version of the first Air Jordan ever released (waaaaay back in 1984), the Air Jordan 2009 Moments (center) is the last Air Jordan to be released, and the Jordan 6 Rings Moments (right) feature design elements from each pair of Jordans worn by MJ during his six NBA Championship wins (Air Jordan's VI, VII, VIII, XI, XII and XIII).

Click the "More" tab for up-close-and-personal pics of each sneaker.

Weekend Baseball: What to Watch 1



I’m just going to toot my own horn here for a minute. Last week I resisted the urge to suggest tuning into the Sabathia/Beckett throw down on Sunday night and instead predicted that Pedro’s return to New York, as a Phillie, would be the best of the day.

If not, maybe you should wise up and take my advice this time around.
