This Week in Sports - August 27-31, 2007

At 6 foot 9, John Isner is making a big name out of himself in the US Open! See what else happened this week!

Sports News - Big Man Rising

Aside from the fact he's 6'9", John Isner is standing out for a different reason. The 22-year-old North Carolina native is making a name for himself in his first US Open. He has already breezed through two opponents by using his deadly serve. The US Open is his first Grand Slam and he's quickly becoming a crowd favorite. His fairy tale run might come to an end as he faces tournament favorite Roger Federer in the third round on Friday.

Sports News - Vick Speaks

Michael Vick broke his silence and finally addressed the public after being accused of being involved with dog fighting. On Monday, he apologized for his actions and asked the public for his forgiveness. His apology comes just a few days after he announced he would plead guilty to the charges.

Sports News - Team USA Rolling

It is safe to say that USA Basketball has taken a hit in the last decade. After years of dominating, the US teams have failed to win gold medals in the last two World Championships and at the 2004 Summer Olympics. This time around, at the Tournament of Americas, the team looks virtually unstoppable with a record of 8-0, as of August 31, 2007.

Notes Around the Sports World

  • On Wednesday night, David Beckham sprained his right knee in a game against Pachuca. The injury occurred when he collided with a Pachuca player. It is unclear when Beckham will return but reports have him out of commission for about six weeks.
  • Tennis star Andy Roddick celebrated his 25th birthday on Thursday by defeating Jose Acususo 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 to advance to the third round. He last won the US Open in 2003.
  • After months of not wanting to play for the Milwaukee Bucks, Yi Jianlian finally signed with the team that drafted him sixth overall last June. The 6'11" Chinese power forward initially did not want to play in a small market city like Milwaukee.
