If you’ve been watching the US Open Championships this week, you probably recognize this guy:
Denis Shapovalov, phenom from Canada
I first saw him beat Rafa Nadal a few weeks ago in a tournament in Montreal. Now he’s cutting a similar swath through the men’s bracket at the Open.
I’m pulling for him.
But I am distracted by his hat. It is always cinched so tight.
I have to wear caps like that at the widest possible position. Some don’t fit me at all. Which begs the question…
How small is Denis’ head? And how big is mine?

In basketball games, the home team wears white, and the visiting team wears a more saturated color.
In tennis, the players wear whatever they please, regardless of their seed in the tournament.
That’s why all of us watching the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tournament on Tennis Channel are experiencing eye strain.
Both players in orange jerseys.
On an orange clay court.
I believe my eyes are bleeding orange blood, too.

Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer?
As the US Open Tennis Tournament begins at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing tomorrow — and Rafa Nadal is out due to injury — the rivalry is back in the forefront.
Not to discredit Andy Murray’s gold medal at the Summer Olympics…but still —
Novak or Roger?
This video answers that question for me.
Who can be one of the greatest tennis players of all time and still have fun? Put on a good show for the kids assembled at Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day? Not take himself — or his celebrity — too seriously?
I’d support that guy any day.
