Passing shots

Take a break and put together a jigsaw puzzle.

Or, if music is more to your liking, take a look (and listen) to the tennis-and-music videos compiled by Courtney Nguyen, inspired by all of Redfoo's recent Vika-love. Bear in mind that--once you've re-visited the insane combination of Lil Wayne and Elena Dementieva--it's all really bad. You may ask yourself, "Why aren't the Bryan Brothers Real Housewives instead of tennis players?" (You may ask yourself, "My god, what have I done?!") And to go even farther back, I remind you, readers, that Elton John's song, "Philadelphia Freedom," was written by John and Bernie Taupin as a favor for Billie Jean King.

Julia Goerges is the latest Rado brand ambassador.

Tennis X puts the WTA Doubles Championships in the trunk this week, and the good news is--starting in 2013, there will be eight teams playing and not four. Sounds better to me.

Daniela Hantuchova is blogging this week from Sofia.

Caroline Wozniacki
Roberta Vinci
Hsieh Su-Wei
Daniela Hantuchova
