Serena and Venus Williams Have Fought Their Toughest Battles Off the Court: Family Tragedy, Life-Threatening Illness & Epic Pressure
To truly dominate a sport, as Serena Williams and Venus Williams have with women's tennis for the better part of 20 years, there's an almost incomprehensible amount of dedication and work—physical and mental—that goes into being the very best. The Williams sisters have tirelessly put in that work, even when the injuries piled up and the call of Hollywood, fashion and lucrative non-tennis pursuits beckoned. Subsequently, they have dozens of singles and doubles titles and millions of dollars to their name. But Venus and Serena weren't just faced with petty distractions over the years. Along with the normal pressures that come with being expected to win, all the time, they've played...

Us Open Star Nick Kyrgios Would Rather Be Playing Basketball (or Pokemon Go): 'I Don’t Love This Sport'
Australian Nick Kyrgios is making his mark at the U.S. Open, but it's not for his love of the game. At 19, Kyrgios burst into the spotlight beating Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon with a jaw dropping between-the-legs shot. The upset led to claims that Kyrgios was "the future of tennis," which, as it turns out, isn't a role he embraces with open arms. "I don't love this sport," Kyrgios, now 21, announced at a press conference last month after losing to Andy Murray at Wimbledon, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. "But, you know, I don't really know what else to do without it.

2016 Summer Olympics: 8 Things We’re Looking Forward To in Rio, And How to Watch Them
And they’re off! After weeks of reports about trouble in Rio – from the threat of Zika virus to the very real problem of polluted water – the 2016 Summer Olympics got underway Friday night with an Opening Ceremony that underwhelmed – at least for American TV audiences. (Initial ratings were way down from the 2012 London Olympics.)

Nonetheless, the real drama and excitement is still to come over the next two weeks, as some of the world’s most decorated athletes look to add to their record tallies. As NBC’s Bob Costas recently told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, “Obviously Michael Phelps is already the greatest swimmer in Olympic history. Usain Bolt is already the greatest sprinter in Olympic history, and they’re trying to add to what they already have done, so we’re talking about Mount Rushmore-type stuff.”

7 Days In Hell Review

Thus far, 2015 hasn’t been the strongest year for HBO original programming. The one-two punch of Veep and Silicon Valley made for one hell of a comedy duo, but only for ten weeks. Last Week Tonight is still a Sunday night saving grace, but replacement comedies Ballers and The Brink have been, at best, middling. After a Game of Thrones season that left many feeling cold as a Night’s Watchman, and with the jury still out on True Detective Season 2, it’s not like HBO couldn’t use something to invigorate its summer slate. 7 Days in Hell, airing this Saturday, should provide just such a shot in the arm.

For one, the special has timing on its side. A 45-minute film starring Andy Samberg and Thrones’ Kit Harington, 7 Days in Hell is a faux documentary recounting a weeklong tennis match at the Wimbledon championships. Half a day after the special airs,
