Cheers
→To Roger Federer’s 15th major title. And Rafael Nadal’s absence doesn’t take away from Federer’s victory. Nadal is a great foe, but he’s won only two majors off clay.

→To baseball’s all-star voting. The fans aren’t just punching in the same old tired names. Of the top 31 active home run leaders, only Albert Pujols (13th) was voted to start.

Jeers
→To NBATV, which is not televising the summer league games from Orlando or Las Vegas. What else does the network have to telecast in summer?

→To Miami’s Dwyane Wade and his attitude, shared by some other NBA superstars, that he wants to stay with his franchise if he can be assured it is building a title contender. But how can a team build a title contender without a commitment from its franchise player?

Cheers & Jeers
