Party Rock tennis shoes
By Sierra Ellison
LAS VEGAS (Sept. 28, 2012) – Professional tennis players and sisters Sierra and Roxanne Ellison were granted a wild card into the main draw doubles at the Party Rock Open, a women’s $50, 000 USTA Pro Circuit event sponsored by Redfoo of the hit group LMFAO and being played at the Darling Tennis Center. The pair lost in the first round to Lena Litvak and Nicole Melichar. Sierra blogs about their experiences in Las Vegas this week:
We wake up at 5 a.m., rub our eyes open and get ready to drive the four and one half hours to Vegas from our home in Southern California. We grab some Starbucks and start the long trek singing along to pump up stay-awake songs while mentally preparing for the tournament that lies before us. The drive to Las Vegas is an interesting one, filled with miles and miles of dust, majestic mountains, and an off ramp named “ZZyzx Road.” But, as we descend upon the Strip, you can’t help but smile at the excitement of it all. There’s never a dull moment on the road with your sister and doubles partner.
The Pandora song changes and LMFAO’s “Sorry for Party Rockin” begins playing on Pandora. How ironic life is, the minute we enter Vegas for the Party Rock Open, the title celebrity sponsor’s song happens to blast in my car. I do believe he planned it that way. Anyways, the tournament was nothing short of what you’d imagine a Party Rock open would be like. Walking into the stunning Darling Tennis Center, we are greeted by tons of people wearing zebra pants, hot pink shirts, Multi-colored glasses, and paint splattered ASICS’ shoes. It’s as if you get the feeling that instead of a tournament, you are going to a concert…which wasn’t far from the truth.
On Kid’s Day Redfoo joined tons of kids and us lucky pros in some games and shufflin’. (For those of you who don’t know, Shuffin’ is a signature dance move for LMFAO.) All of the kids were in awe of how awesome and nice Red Foo really was. Not stuck up or “celebrity-like” at all. He was so much fun and a great sport! Really caring about having fun with the kids and making them feel special. His body guards had to chase after him because he would move from kid to kid and court to court so quickly and with such excitement, they couldn’t keep up.
