Weekend Tennis Roundup

Like the namesake city where it's played, the Miami Open is all about beautiful people and beautiful food. So while there was some noteworthy action -- Thiem, Pouille, Khachanov, Nishikori, Wawrinka, Cilic and Zverev lost early in the men's draw, and Osaka, Stephens, Keys, Bencic and Kerber lost early in the women's, with Angie losing for the second week in a row to Andreescu, whom the German called "the biggest drama queen" as they were shaking hands(!) -- there was plenty to see elsewhere, too. 

Not to sound like Miranda after Skippy got a new girlfriend, but has Kevin Anderson been working out? 

You know Filip Krajinovic is my new boyfriend, but then I saw Novak's baby brother (far right) ... hello, Djordje!

I think Diego Schwartzman has an eye for photography ...

What's for dinner? Balkan beef ...

Stan and Karen Khachanov were all smiles at dinner. But no sooner did Krajinovic like this photo, he defeated the Swiss in a three-set nail biter. (Aussie Jordan Thompson dumped the Russian in two easy sets.) 

Grigor Dimitrov dismissed Feliciano Lopez in the Battle of the Beauties. Next up: Thompson.

Good to see Bernard Tomic playing well again -- giving fellow "Yugoslavian" Novak Djokovic a scare in their opening match. 

Will the crowd ever love Nole enough?

Having grown up watching these two women on the tour, this birthday message from Billie Jean King to Ilana Kloss sure warmed my heart.
