Weekend Tennis Roundup

The field has been narrowed to eight in the revamped (and now impossible-to-follow) Davis Cup, the Orange County Breakers won World Team Tennis, plus find out if Marcos Giron wore a black jockstrap in the desert BELOW.

So these are the countries that will compete for the Davis Cup, which hasn't been the same since Shakira's husband turned it into another ATP Cup. (No, it’s not “the World Cup of tennis,” it’s the Davis Cup of tennis.) Somehow the U.S. fell out of contention by losing to Colombia(!), who also didn't qualify even though it’s a single-elimination format. If anyone has the foggiest idea how any of this works now, please contact me stat.

With Stevie Johnson and Austin Krajicek on board, the Orange County Breakers were the best-looking World Team Tennis team this year -- and apparently also played the best, defeating the Springfield Lasers, 21-13, inside Stadium 2 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden to take home the King Cup

And last but not least, is it just me or was Marcos Giron wearing a black jockstrap during World Team Tennis?


Anyone know if someone's getting some of this? 



can't you find better advertisers than cotosen? this anti-Biden sweatshirt ad is offensive to me as an American and as a gay man.

Please get rid of this creepy shit.
