Osaka kicked Serena's spoiled, entitled, faux-feminist ass. What a sad display and an embarrassment to the game, and to the USA, sEilliams put on!

Damn - really upsetting to not get a BENCIC-WILLIAMS US Open final.

I dont think the Canadian has a chance.

Hail, Serena!

There's no thread for competitive eating, so I'll post this here....

Quote
(CNN)A woman has choked to death on a lamington -- Australia's national cake -- during an eating competition to celebrate the country's national day.
The 60-year-old was taking part in a lamington and pie eating competition in the coastal city of Hervey Bay, in the state of Queensland, according to CNN affiliate Nine News.
The event took place at the Beach House Hotel on Sunday to mark Australia Day -- a public holiday typically celebrated with parades, fireworks and food festivals around the country.

Does that count as a win?
