Earlier this week, Jessica was offended that the Wimbledon website was asking fans to vote for the tennis players in the tournament they found most attractive. I, on the other hand, have little to no problem with it. I mean, it’s just a fact that athletes are often good-looking and I definitely don’t mind ogling some hot bodies. Which is why I thought it was a high time to play a little game of Shun, Shag, or Marry with the hot guys who make Wimbledon must-see TV. After the jump, my selections. Feel free to share yours after the jump. Keep reading »

Hot off his Monte Carlo Masters win over the weekend, sexy Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal is making us sweat just watching him at the Barcelona Open (aka the Conde de Godo 2009). He’s currently battling for his fifth title at the tourney, but we bet he’ll go all the way next year, too, and get six cups — one for every ab muscle. [Barcelona, Spain, 4/21/09] Keep reading »
One of the things I like about tennis is how quiet the arena gets when someone good is playing, so that you can hear every somewhat sexual grunt. That’s what I would be paying attention to if I was attending the U.S. Open, going on right now and through this weekend. After the jump, some of the hotties playing this year — a few of whom are already out — and their best stats for those of you who care about, you know, sporting and competition and stuff.

- Lykke Li Youth Novels
A Frisky favorite, we’ve been anxiously anticipating the release of Lykke Li’s first full length studio recording. And Youth Novels lives up to her ladylike hype! This Swedish singer’s sound is so cute and clap-able without pandering to pathetic pop trends. You’ll nod your head to her thoughtfully luscious vocals and sweet beats. This girl’s got it!
I could honestly not give a poop about tennis, but I did go to a US Open game once and it was kind of amazing how hushed the crowd gets during a match — you can hear a pin drop, not to mention every grunt out of the players’ mouths. Anyway, I was kind of interested in Wimbledon this year though, mainly because I am so sick of reading about Roger Federer in Vogue and seeing him sitting front row at every fashion show because of the crush Anna Wintour has on him. I kind of hate a guy who always wins, except maybe Tiger Woods, because he is too sexy to hate. So when Rafael Nadal engaged in the battle to end all battles with Federer yesterday and managed to pull out a win, I was like, “Damn, that is one fine piece of chorizo.” He’s Spanish. Spanish sausage. Get it? Keep reading »
