During the week before the US Open begins, what we like to refer to as Party Patrol week, Nike brought out its big stars in an exhibition on Pier 54 in New York City. Along withÂ Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka an injured Serena Williams came out to emcee the event along with John McEnroe. After the fun and games and the premiere of their US Open outfits,Â it was off to the news conference for some fashion talk and giggling fun. The article received so many thousands of hits just after it was posted that the site came close to crashing.

We’re celebrating 2010 with a countdown of the site’s “Greatest Hits.” In addition we mark the end of our third year as an outlet with news of our own: the site is currently undergoing a re-design and a re-launch with a new name to be announced just before the new site goes live before the end of the month. The rankings were determined by the number of hits between December 10, 2009 through December 10, 2010. The countdown will continue through New Year’s Day.
