  1. What heroic performances from Del Potro and Delbonis to win Argentina their first Davis Cup!
  2. Two of the most handsome men in tennis.
  3. Well I hope Novak pulls it together. We saw flashes of the old Novak in WTF semifinal (granted, Kei also played like [!@#$%^&*] most of the time). Perhaps the time off will be rejuvenating. He is inarguably one of the greatest to ever pick up a racquet, and if he retired tomorrow, his legacy would be set.
  4. Well, that was embarrassing for Kei. For a top player who can be so dangerous, he sure can tank big matches. I'm one of those rare Nole fans, so I'm happy with the result. Murray looked vulnerable against Raonic (who really should have won today), so it'll be interesting to see what level he brings against Djokovic tomorrow.
  5. Very interesting piece. I haven't liked American male players since Agassi. They do have a smug, insular, entitled quality. I once had a soft spot for Stevie Johnson since he seemed like an unassuming guy on court, but once he started whining about DelPotro's much-deserved wild card at the USO, it was over. And I can't even rally around the Bryan brothers either in doubles. Hopefully, Tiafoe and Mmoh will live up to their potential and give tennis fans people to root for.
  6. Not to mention Maria's absence. Sport needs villains. I oddly missed her and I wasn't expecting to, if only to see her humiliated by Serena on a regular basis.
  7. Agreed. I watched that match and was screaming at the television each time Kei hit a misguided dropshot. It was insane. I hope Michael Chang rips him a new one for that.
  8. I loved it too. The old chemistry was still there. Even Debbie, while still slightly ditzy, was a welcome sight. If I were a current View co-host watching that, I'd be quaking in my boots.
  9. RIP. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be a soap opera writer, and I wrote to her not expecting a response. She mailed me back the loveliest note filled with practical advice on life and career. I'll always be appreciative of her for that.
  10. Echoing everyone's praise. She not only said the right things, but she backed up her assertions with solid reasoning about why things aren't working. As we know from politics, campaigning and governing are two separate things. We'll see if she can actually push through her ideas, but her dual EP/HW credit gives me hope. I was done with soaps before this, but this interview alone has excited me enough to give Y&R another chance starting in December.
  11. Grant Aleksander was so great as Alec. That was the last truly good era of the show.
  12. Just saw Jason Brooks (Peter Blake, DAYS) on an episode of How To Get Away with Murder.
  13. Deidre Hall. Left DAYS and did Our House, which was mildly successful, and later returned. Debbi Morgan. Even had Oscar talk for Eve's Bayou after leaving AMC. Then came back and did PC and then AMC again and then Y&R.
  14. An Indian "super-intelligent creative engineer who isn't so smooth with the ladies"? That's not stereotypical at all.[/sarcasm]
  15. This show is trying to make sure I never watch again.
