  1. I think she’s playing great. But every time she’s close to a trophy, there’s just something that can’t get her over the line these days, which is why I’m wondering if it’s fatigue. I fell asleep before Halep/Osaka, but wow. After how Naomi handled Pliskova and now Halep, I think she’s going to be a handful for Dasha. Sascha has really helped Naomi develop rather quickly.
  2. Ugh. Why does Venus always have to make things so hard for herself? She had been playing so beautifully and was two points away from taking Dasha out. So angry. She could have won this *entire* tournament. Is it just fatigue? She has come so close in so many tournaments over the past couple of years.
  3. This Venus/Kasatkina match is BANANAS.
  4. Wow, now that you say it... And Pouille debuts in the Top 10 on Monday. I know he’s won a title and made two other finals so far this year, but his Indian Wells performance was less than stellar. Yet there’s a vacuum at the top of the game, and Federer’s partying like it’s 2004-07. Maybe Andy Roddick should come out of retirement...

    Doctor Who

    Hey, for whatever reason, HBO likes being in the Lena Dunham business, so unless the show really tanks, he’ll get at least 2-3 seasons out of it and something to pad the resume. Then again, it could be disastrous, and he’ll be back in the U.K. where he’ll get steady work until he croaks...
  6. Yeah. It’s sad because she seems very nice, and she’s talented. Just could use a bit of a makeover.

    Doctor Who

    David Tennant has signed on to play Jennifer Garner’s husband in Camping, the new HBO comedy from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. (The show itself is a remake of the Julia Davis Britcom.) After some false starts with the never-aired NBC pilot and the failed Broadchurch remake, Tennant is finally making inroads into American TV between this and Jessica Jones. http://www.vulture.com/2018/03/david-tennant-joins-jennifer-garner-in-new-hbo-comedy.html
  8. Ha. I always thought CSN resembled Alfred E. Neuman from Mad magazine. In any case, I’m glad Venus is still in great form. She looked totally out of sorts at that MSG match and her form late last year was not up to standard. I see Raonic got past Querrey. I normally thought Milos was just a servebot, but I saw things in the Sousa match that looked promising. EDIT: I heard Querrey choked the match away. Here’s to hoping that Coric has a gear that can test Roger. I dunno. I don’t think Fed looks invincible. Chung had him going for a while but collapsed in the 2nd set. As others have said, if Chung works on his subpar serve, I think he could get multiple Slam titles. Man, that was a lethargic first set for Delpo against Kohlschreiber.
  9. I understood. And Buzz was Frank Sr., so you were correct in any case. 😜
  10. Murphy’s son Avery has been cast: http://www.vulture.com/2018/03/lady-birds-jake-mcdorman-to-play-murphy-browns-son.html?utm_campaign=vulture&utm_source=fb&utm_medium=s1
  11. Did Harley and Lucy ever interact? I thought there might have been overlap before Harley left with Mallet. No one ever thought to bring Lucy back after she was gone, even to play sibling rivalry with Harley, and good riddance. But it was just so obvious that she was just a stand-in daughter for Buzz. She had that obnoxious baby voice, and of course, I was pissed that TPTB decided to play Lucy/Alan-Michael instead of Gilly/Alan-Michael. I loathed Sonia Satra on GL, but I was surprised at how little I minded her on OLTL as crazy Barbara. Another bland actress who benefited from playing a psycho.
  12. Disastrous ratings for CBS, but what else is new?
  13. I mean, it still had Roger. I think there’s some Fed fatigue as well, at least when he’s not being challenged by an equal. When the result is a foregone conclusion, why bother watching?
  14. Wow. These young girls are coming for the crown.
  15. I’m not watching the match, but what on earth is going on with Angelique Kerber? She’s been playing so well this year, absolutely smothered Caroline Garcia, and gets bageled by Daria Kasatkina?
  16. I have a feeling if Adrienne is killed off, Will will come to Sonny’s aid. I wish we could have seen Sonny hook up with the cute bartender.
  17. Ending up like the sour and toxic Victor/Nikki sounds like another type of purgatory. At least Victor and Nikki got to take long term breathers and have other successful love stories even as they were always connected. Hevon is just a vortex of repetition, and their obvious chemistry can’t override that.
  18. Naomi Osaka demolished Karolina Pliskova. She’s looking fierce.
  19. Baghdatis pulled out so Raonic gets a walkover to face Querrey in the QFs. I feel like Milos is sort of flying under the radar. His movement looks MUCH improved.
  20. Yep. The only possibility is that Roger sees the vast opportunities and overextends himself, like the rumors of him playing the French. Delpo is down a set to Leonardo Mayer of all people. If he doesn’t pull things around, there goes the sole person left in the draw with a track record of threatening Roger day in and day out. We will see what Hyeon Chung can do uninjured against Roger. He has the tenacious Djokovic-like game that can challenge him. But that brain fart of a second set today where Chung was up 5-0 on Cuevas and almost let the guy back into the match... not promising.
