Hearts Aflutter as Adidas Raises Hemline on Men's Shorts

Lucas Pouille

Sometimes it's the little things -- and Adidas really delivered with its latest "kit" being sported by many of its stars. The collarless blouse clings nicely to the guys' bodies -- but it's the blue shorts that have been raised just a tad that have me very excited about the summer tennis season ahead ...

Gilles Simon

Tomas Berdych

Maximilian "Legs" Marterer

Oh, Fernando (Verdasco)

Stefanos Tsitsipas may have lost this match to Richard Gasquet. But he won the sartorial sectionals ...

Tatum O'Neal Remembers Photographer David Seidner

. . “I got the awesome honor to work with photographer #DavidSeidner (February 18, 1957 - June 6, 1999) on @Saks Fifth Avenue Magazine which I still have somewhere. We became fast friends in 1993. We spoke every day and went to fancy events together. I remember David getting depressed about his diagnosis. He was so proud, that I could understand. David moved to Miami and we lost touch. But before that he started a wasting and building series which was really fascinating and scary and sad. He truly was a master photographer. Anyone who does not know David’s work should look him up. I miss this proud amazing friend every day. I remember him” — by Tatum O’neal @tatum__oneal.

Weekend Tennis Roundup

Roger Federer surprised no one by coming back from a long break to capture the grass-court tournament in Stuttgart, with a 6-4 7-6 (7-3) victory over Milos Raonic. Like Rafael Nadal on clay, he's already the odds-on favorite to pick up a ninth Wimbledon crown. 

"Gee, thanks"

The win put the Swiss legend back on top of the ATP rankings -- he had lost in the first round to now-retired Tommy Haas last year so all of these points were gravy -- but he will need to defend his title at the Halle Open this week to maintain it. (How's that for a geriatric seesaw?) 

Richard Gasquet defeated French compatriot Jeremy Chardy to win the Libema Open at Hertogenbosch. The big-assed coke fiend was in fine form in the final, showing off his grass court prowess on his way to a 6-3, 7-6 (5) win. The victory shot him from No. 30 to No. 15 on the ATP computer, and makes me think he'll lose in the first round at Wimbledon after having made two previous semifinals. (Bernard Tomic continued to impress, reaching the semifinals before losing to the eventual champion.)

The Sporting News reports that Ashleigh Barty beat a "furious" Johanna Konta (what are the odds?!) to claim her second career title on the WTA Tour at the Nottingham Open. Barty had lost her three previous singles finals but the top seed recorded a 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 victory on Sunday to add to her previous triumph at last year's Malaysia Open. Konta vented her fury at the chair umpire on more than one occasion (shocker!), branding one decision "an absolute joke" after a Barty shot appeared to land long in a tense final set. She also refused to shake the official's hand at the end of the match after losing in the final of the tournament for a second successive year. (Gee, I wonder why she's been through 15 coaches in five years.)

And lastly, Serbia's Aleksandra Krunic came back from a set and a break down against Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium to take her first WTA Title at the Libema Open in Hertogenbosch. The world No. 55 came through 6-7 (0), 7-5, 6-1 to seal the deal.

Song of the Day: 'Dance With Me' by Orleans

One of those wacky singles from back in the day that had actually already appeared as an album track on their second release before being released as a single on their third. In truth, the sophomore album wasn't actually released domestically for a reason that seems most ironic now: The executives didn't think it had any hit singles on it! I'm more a "Still the One" man, but have a soft spot for any soft rock hits of the '70s ...


Singer/guistarist John Hall would later become a Democratic congressman representing New York's 19th district. And if you haven't seen his appearance on "The Colbert Report," stop what you're doing and watch it now here!
