  1. They’d better keep milking the drama around Hilary because the rest of the show would make it *really* easy to stop watching. That SOD cover is a whole lotta “Who cares?”
  2. Oh god yes. Chelsea just makes me itch. I never liked Friends much, but when it started Schwimmer/Ross was my favorite. By the end, I despised him and felt he was easily the worst character and actor in that cast. I’m cringing at the thought of him and Messing together, but most of Grace’s love interests are terrible. Quick addendum: Schwimmer came into our work office one day maybe five or six years ago to do a reading of some script he was producing, and I was surprised at how attractive he was. It doesn’t come across for me onscreen.
  3. LOL at the comments about BF’s lip gloss in that Daytime Confidential photo.
  4. After that appalling loss to Baghdatis in which he looked like he didn’t GAF and that really bad match against Goffin in DC, this was a great turnaround. He didn’t fall off a cliff like some of his compatriots (Sock, Fritz).
  5. It’s not that difficult to get the facts right about a player’s history. (His ATP profile has the info. Wikipedia isn’t always correct, but it’s right there in the first paragraph of Frances’s entry.) In all likelihood, the announcer himself didn’t do the research, but still it’s unprofessional that it wasn’t caught. That was Frances’s first ATP title, so I can imagine he was touchy about it. Obviously, Frances didn’t sweat it, as he came out and won his match. Meanwhile, Fognini and Shapovalov are battling verbally on the changeover. Wow.
  6. This trashy, oversexed reality series has become as talked-out in the U.K. as The Great British Bake-off was a few years ago, but for very different reasons. Of course, an American version is the works, and it’s coming to CBS, which, as you know, has had great success remaking “Big Brother,” an originally Dutch format also popular in Britain. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/love-island-is-coming-cbs-american-adaptation-1133157
  7. Just saw that. Not sure the extent of the injury, but her screams brought back memories of Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Mary Pierce. Hope it wasn’t that bad. In other news, this is so disrespectful from the announcer:
  8. Wow, Cornet knocked out Kerber.
  9. Del Potro has pulled out of Rogers Cup due to caution over his wrist. Youzhny takes his spot against Haase.
  10. He apparently moved to England at seven from Kansas. His mother is American, and his father is British, and they thought England would be a better place to bring up a mixed-race child. https://www.yorkmix.com/entertainment/meet-young-york-actor-starring-hottest-new-show-netflix/
  11. He’s American-born, British-raised.
  12. The Zoe stuff is a huge WTF. And the stuff with Harry the cat brings the whole show to a grinding halt.
  13. DAYS is the only soap up YOY in 18-49 or 25-54, and that’s by a minuscule margin. Y&R saw viewers and 25-54 up a bit week over week. I suppose that’s good for a highly emotional storyline. Still, it must hurt to not outrate Sussman. Viewers must have found the Nelle/Michael baby switch stuff on GH really repellent.
  14. It must be great to be a lucky loser and replace a player with a Bye: Monica Puig replaces Muguruza and goes straight to R2 against Sevastova. Azarenka clowned Kiki Mladenovic and won 6-0, 6-1. Plays Konta next. Kasatkina/Sharapova should be a fun one. Defense to offense
  15. One hopes FAA has a Shapovalov-like run in him. The draw’s not great. Medvedev is a winnable match next up, but a potential third-round matchup with Sascha doesn’t look that promising for him. Perhaps it could be a fun match? They’ve never played before.
  16. FAA has been buzzed about for a little while now, so it’s good that he’s getting solid wins over quality opponents. Although Pouille, after his strong start this year, has really underwhelmed most of the season. A win is a win, but Novak looked shaky today against Basic. His stats were great, but he just wasn’t as clutch as we’d seen at Wimbledon. Maybe it’s just opening round nerves. Wawrinka got past Kyrgios after a rough first set.
