Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports 6/29/13Good morning. We have sports action all day, including right now at the All England Club, as Wimbledon tries to avoid yet more upsets. Once we hit the pm hours, baseball takes its spot on the top of the heap. It's a big weekend on the diamond, as just about every relevant AL team this season is facing a top opponent, whether in their own league or against the NL. We also have MLS, NASCAR, golf, the start of the Tour de France, and yes, the CFL. No, really, it's on ESPN2 and everything.

Ugh Fox announcers might be worse than Dave Sims. Then again, we might get lucky with some good ones. I love "Turn Back The Clock" days - my faves!

Djokovic committed just three unenforced errors in his win today. Wow.

Keys forced a third set, and got it to 2-2 in the third, but something happened after that and she lost the final set 6-3.

good match though.

There's a bus stuck on the finish line at the Tour de France. Seriously.

Serena gets the picture because later today she faces Kimiko Date-Krumm. Date-Krumm is 42 years old.

Another American, Madison Keys, is hanging tough against the 4th seeded Radwanska, but the latter did just take the first set 7-5.

Sloane Stephens has advanced to the 4th round.
