In Sports: A Weekend Full of Upsets

Monday, September 07, 2009

Today we look at sports upsets that dominated games over the weekend. Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, the Takeaway sports contributor joins us to talk about the U.S. Open, where we saw a slew of top seeds get eliminated. Most dramatically, seventeen-year-old Melanie Oudin stunned thousands of spectators as she beat top seed Maria Sharapova. Other casualties included Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, James Blake and women’s number one player, Danira Safina. Tennis wasn't the only sport that saw upsets; in college football, BYU defeated number one Oklahoma.
