Didn't We Almost Have It All?


For a moment there it really seemed like everything was going in the right direction. Now it seems the American Dream is dead on arrival.

Tiafoe, Verdasco and Thiem Work Up a Sweat in Cincy

Looks like practice didn't make perfect for Tiafoe and Verdasco, who were both knocked out in the first round.

Weekend Tennis Roundup


Wasn't happy to see Stefanos Tsitsipas's winning streak come to an end in Toronto, especially to Rafael Nadal. But at least my boyfriend -- still sore from Wimbledon -- was happy.


I like his old hair better!


And speaking of unhappiness: Simona Halep -- who couldn't win a match to save her life when we wanted her to -- is suddenly acting like the No. 1 player in the world, outlasting Sloane Stephen 7-6(6), 3-6, 6-3 to win the women's title. This is starting to remind me of two other tennis "rivalries" -- Federer-Nadal and Evert-Navratilova -- where one person won all of the matches. Still proud of Stephens for building what began at this very tournament last year, but sure wish she could figure out a way to end this losing streak to the Romanian. 


Everyone's on to Cincinnati now. Here's hoping Borna Coric -- seen here in a photo posted by fashion and style director of the gay U.K. magazine Attitude -- can turn things around ... or come out?

Mug Shot Monday


So this Florida middle school teacher BOUGHT SEX TOYS FOR STUDENTS and asked them to record themselves using the devices -- like we haven't all made mistakes?

Song of the Day: 'Slave to Love' by Bryan Ferry


Along with "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs, this was the quintessential song of my high school experience. (I played "Boys and Girls" constantly senior year.) It was Bryan Ferry's biggest solo single, yet even Americans riding the British New Wave were still too dumb to appreciate it. What it lacked in sales, however, it more than made up for in film and television licensing, most famously in "9 1/2 Weeks" and more recently a couple of Ryan Murphy projects. They truly don't record songs like this anymore -- truly captivating.

'Trick' Pics


If these photos from the first table read for the sequel to Jim Fall’s 1999 cult favorite -- featuring original leads Christian Campbell and JP Pitoc plus scene-stealers Steve Hayes, Tori Spelling, Miss Coco Peru et al. -- are any indication, we’re in for a “Trick” that’s going to be quite a treat!

Speedo Sunday


Apparently friendships are different in Slovakia. 

North American Beauties


Mixed feelings about the results from the Rogers Cup on Saturday. Was happy Sloane Stephens outfoxed Elina Svitolina -- who still comes out a winner with dreamy Andrew Bettles in her box. If there's a god she will exact revenge on Simona Halep in Sunday's final. 


And was equally thrilled that Stefanos Tsitsipas extended his Top 10 massacre with a three-set win over Kevin Anderson, whose biggest fan was in his box (above). 


But then it was boring business as usual when Karen Khachanov, who Damian and I agree is the hottest man on tour these days -- which is really saying something -- came up short again versus Rafael Nadal.


Well, short in the Game Department, that is.


Meanwhile, the rest of the men are already getting ready in Cincinnati, where Roger Federer will return to action for the first time since getting knocked out by Anderson at Wimbledon, squandering a two-set lead. Borna Coric -- who Damian and I also agree is No. 2 on the hot list -- and Bosnian shorty Damir Dzumhur are my pick for cutest couple!
