  1. Really off-topic: I know the plural of “Winters” is “Winterses,” but it feels so weird to write or say that. I agree that this is the best showcase the Winters family (!) has gotten since the Lily paternity reveal or the early days of Devon’s illness. Maybe ever. But the question is whether MY can sustain it or build upon it. History tells us no at the moment.
  2. I love the first CPW theme. It’s so lusty and tribal. The second one feels like a slightly sexed-up knockoff of a Herskowitz/Zwick or David E. Kelley theme/opening.
  3. Nishioka won 11 of the last 13 games to beat Taylor Fritz in Los Cabos. A good win for him since returning from injury, but people are saying Fritz did a Kyrgios-style tank. Interesting matches in DC tomorrow: the Zverev brothers’ first match against each other on the tour; Shapovalov/Nishikori; Goffin/Tiafoe. I think we have to include France on the list of hot nations for tennis players. Quentin Halys is 🔥. The young Simon, Gasquet, and Tsonga were all lookers. Chardy, Herbert, and Pouille are hot. Paire could certainly look way better with a trimmed beard and his natural hair color. They have this guy Laurent Lokoli who is very attractive. Most of them are effing nuts, but it is what it is. Actually, a lot of the younger Americans are cute. Michael Mmoh, Marcus Miron, Mackenzie McDonald, Noah Rubin, and Thai-Son Kwiatkowski are good-looking. Even Taylor Fritz, whom I don’t particularly like, is photogenic.
  4. Maybe he’s just waiting for the next season of Big Little Lies to figure out what to do next.
  5. Isn’t Phyllis technically involved in all three family splits right now? Mal seems to have abandoned Amelia Heinle for the time being, after she dominated the show for the better part of a decade. She definitely needed to be rested, but it’s disappointing that we saw no follow-up to the DV story.
  6. It appears the Playboy channel aired a more explicit version of the show. https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/tv/1993/06/27/usa-joins-with-playboy-to-present-adult-series-eden/17dd58d2-e0df-4226-9791-afb39fa5cdf9/?utm_term=.139fe78a3b59
  7. Muguruza out of San Jose with an arm injury. It’s crazy. Even with hampered mobility, Murray gets to balls that would be winners for most of his opponents. Malek Jaziri’s lips, though. Lisa Rinna wishes.
  8. Is it weird that I used to be annoyed with Andy Murray’s running commentary during his matches but now find it amusing?
  9. Well, with the Abbotts going to battle with each other, and the Newmans getting splintered down the middle, it’s time for the Winters to have a civil war. Ugh. Phyllis. Stay out of family business.
  10. I think you never know with Sloane. She could just turn things around on a dime when you least expect it. But she typically GOATs on U.S. soil.
  11. Petkovic knocks out Sloane in DC.
  12. I can see it being dismissed as a cute little deathbed fantasy played as a joke, but it still felt odd to me that it was omitted, as if the script editors weren’t keeping track. Maybe it would have overtaxed the wardrobe budget. All in all, it was a decent service. Loved Hilary’s notes to the survivors, although it still rankles that Phyllis was the one delivering them, giving her history with the Winters family. Neil’s speech also annoyed me, but I suppose it was in character.
  13. Agreed. I can understand why a few lower-ranked clay court specialists would play on the surface this way in the year to make some cash, but Thiem should have earned enough money and technically should be a contender on all surfaces. He’s doing himself no favors.
  14. Didn’t Hilary ask for the women to wear royal wedding-style fascinators? Disappointed lol.
  15. I completely agree with this. Every year, they struggle to come up with nominees in the Younger categories. Some of them barely have scenes to submit. No other major award (Oscars, Tonys, Primetime Emmys, Grammys) does this.
  16. Very few in the tennis press have acknowledged that story as a possible factor in Serena’s loss. I really hate the media.
  17. This is funny if true. He lost in three sets to Istomin in Austria.
  18. There’s another thread in the Daytime Emmys section, so maybe we want to merge them?
