Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Maria Sharapova found her serve and her baseline game at the right time to beat Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-4, 6-3 yesterday Saturday in the Qatar Open. The three-time Grand Slam winner will face Vera Zvonareva in an all-Russian final.

Zvonareva reached her second final of the year with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 win over China's Li Na in the first semifinal.

Go Masha!
