This is one of the most delightful World Cup books I've ever read — just a murderer's row of soccer writers and a wonderful set of stories. And it's been published independently! Do yourself/the world a favor and buy it:

Thought Josh—on Federer, on his exit vs Serena’s, on Federer’s elegant exit from the GOAT debate—was tremendous. Go listen!

Shoutout to @ellepereffe for pinging me on this: The whole crew of chair umpires on Centre Court at ATP Sofia today are women, which is awesome. 10/10, no notes.

Yoshihito Nishioka improves to 6-0 against Dan Evans, despite having been ranked well below him during every meeting. 🪶

A brutal stretch for the knee ligaments of the WTA’s most well liked players, with Aleksandra Krunic also rupturing hers this week in Tallinn.

Serena turns 41 today, which again reminds us how remarkable her US Open was at 40 years 11 months. But I think her most underrated run of recent years was at the 2021 Aussie Open, when at 39 she beat #7 Sabalenka and #2 Halep back to back to reach SFs.

#TBT to when rain delayed play during Wimbledon qualifying and so play finished after the Brexit vote instead of before it, and it meant that the plummeting pound was suddenly worth way less midway through the qualifying week.

The market says, "yeah, Brexit? Bad move. Really bad move. Horrible move, really."

Not often I would heartily recommend watching highlights of a match this uncompetitive, but if you haven't watched Jessika Ponchet before (or recently), she's a treat to behold.

always nice to see Karolina Muchova not injured and in full flow (and always fun to see Jessika Ponchet and her weirdo technique make a rare appearance on the main tour)

Brandon Nakashima wins a first ATP title in his hometown of San Diego, thereby breaking into the top 50. While the US doesn’t have any men in the Top 10, 18% of the ATP Top 50 will be American as of tomorrow.

"Don't mess with your eyebrows." That was Madison Brengle's answer when I asked her what advice she'd give her younger self at the WTA 125 in Concord last year. It's sage advice. The American captures her 18th career title, defeating Yuan Yue, 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-2 in Berkeley.

Team World needed to do that today to justify continuing the Europe-World format of Laver Cup. If those three matches went the other way, think it was time to scrap and reimagine the competition (and who knows, maybe it still is?)

@BenRothenberg We gonna talk about Foe headhunting GOATs last night or not really? Because he took a big step backwards with that act IMO.

Not everything went Roger Federer’s way in his life and career, but gosh darn does he make you feel like it did. Grateful to the end.
