Theron avoiding all tennis news

The Hollywood star was spotted in the audience in the earlier rounds of the New York championship tournament last week (ends11Sep09), but she has yet to watch the men’s final between Roger Federer and Juan Martin del Potro.

The match was due to take place on Sunday (13Sep09) but heavy rain pushed the game back to Monday (14Sep09) – when Theron was in Los Angeles to promote her new film The Burning Plain.

So she’s steering clear of all news until she can sit down and catch up on her sporting passion.

She says, “I’m a huge tennis fan but don’t tell me what happened in the finals. The men’s finals I haven’t seen because it rained and then they pushed it a day and then I had to go to L.A. and I had to do press so I didn’t get a chance to watch it.”
