Passing shots

NBC has lost the Wimbledon tournament, which is the least of the punishments the network deserves for its constant imposition of blackouts, which forces people without fast enough Internet connections to watch big matches after the fact--and forces the rest of us to watch on inferior screens. The assumption is that NBC was outbid by ESPN.

3rd seed Lucie Safarova was upset today in the first round of the Swedish Open. Safarova was defeated 6-3, 6-4 by Vesna Golonts. The tournament is played on clay, Safarova's best surface.

Meanwhile, in Budapest, 3rd seed Klara Zakopalova advanced to the second round with a win over Han Xinyun.

The Djoker lifts the Venus Rosewater dish.

It's time to get to know Anna Tatishvili.

Nike and Wilson have a champion.
