Another title for Rebecca Marino

Canadian Rebecca Marino, who's on the comeback trail after a five-year break, bagged another trophy last weekend. The 27-year-old won the $25,000 women's ITF event in Winnipeg, Canada Sunday, defeating No. 2 seed Julia Glushko in the final. Marino's third series of return tournaments was cut short by a shoulder injury in late May, during her first event on the Florida Har-Tru circuit. After six weeks, she returned to victory. When the result is added, she'll move up nearly 100 spots to about No. 328. She has two more Canadian ITFs in Quebec the next two weeks.

Ladies, pack your (Wimbledon) bags

Now that Wimbledon is over, all of those tennis bags and rackets the manufacturers supplied to their players for the big event have to be shoved back in the closet. In the ongoing tussle inside the alphabet soup of tennis, The WTA Tour has a rule about using equipment identified with the logo or name of a Grand Slam.  Players who do it will be subject to a fine of up to $5,000 (see page 110 of the rule book). The rationale is the need to "be respectful" of the identity of the WTA Tour.

WTT begins, with missing stars

As Wimbledon wrapped up, World Team Tennis season kicked off in the U.S. The first missing face was Wimbledon semifinalist John Isner, who had a scheduling conflict for the New York Empire opener. The Empire faces another likely absence next week in Genie Bouchard, confirmed back in April as headlining the July 26 match. Bouchard is being promoted at the WTA International-level event in Nanchang, China next week. The Canadian has moved from the grass at Wimbledon to playing on clay last week and this week in Gstaad. The Nanchang tournament is on hard courts.

Halep in the house in Bucharest

There was no shortage of Romanians on the schedule in Bucharest Tuesday. All five matches on the stadium court, four of them singles, featured home girls. But the most famous, Simona Halep, was a spectator. You can't blame Halep for not playing the event (not even in doubles), after she'd already made the transition to grass and now to hard. But the stands would have been a lot fuller. This was Halep's reaction as she watched friend Irina Camelia Begu – who was defending her title - crush her racket, late in her first-round loss to Ons Jabeur.

Safarova coach Steckley’s latest production

Canadian Rob Steckley not only is a talented coach, he's also increasingly impressing as a videographer. Steckley cut his teeth on the video side nearly a decade ago, when he was first on tour and helped countrywoman Aleksandra Wozniak get to a career-best No. 21. Since then, he has evolved and not only produces fun videos starring current charge Lucie Safarova, but also more artistic endeavors. These days, he's shooting with a Sony A7iii and a DJI Mavic Pro drone after starting both shooting and editing on his iPhone. Here's his unique take on the magnificence that is Wimbledon.

Pre-order Fed’s new Uniqlo next week

Roger Federer and Uniqlo unveiled their new collaboration on the first day of Wimbledon. Given the lead time required for manufacturing, they couldn't take advantage of the big reveal to actually sell to the public (obviously the point of the exercise). But the company is making his white kit available on its Japanese online site soon. A shirt, shorts, headband, wristband and socks in a "special box" will be available for pre-order starting next Monday. Delivery is scheduled in "late September to early October". The price is a very reasonable 13,500 yen - or about $120 US.

Philippe-Chartier demolition begins

After a two-month break in the modernization of the French Open site during the tournament, work has begun again. The demolition of basically 80 per cent of the center court, Court Philippe-Chatrier, began with the removal of some 15,000 green plastic seats  (what are they even doing with them?) Next year, the seating in the main stadium (and the new No. 1 Court, Simonne-Mathieu) will match the new seating at Court Suzanne Lenglen and be made of chestnut wood. It should be noted that some players found the new, paler seating rather challenging to adjust to visually.

Another top-level match under suspicion

As much as the Tennis Integrity Unit's few "gotchas" have been at the lower levels, there are occasional suspicions about top-level matches. David Marrero found himself involved in a second such match in the first round of Wimbledon doubles. Marrero's first-round mixed doubles loss at the 2016 Australian Open was the impetus for the formation of the TIU's review panel. Fernando Verdasco Tweeted he was interviewed and cooperated fully. Marrero told EFE it was inconceivable someone could fix a three-hour match, and that he hadn't played on grass in two years. His last grass win came in 2014.

Angelique Kerber promotional tour begins

Angelique Kerber, the first German to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graf in 1996, will be busy. First stop came Monday, on behalf of sponsor Porsche, as Kerber (and the Venus Rosewater Dish) made an appearance at the auto maker's museum in Stuttgart. Clothing sponsor adidas got her on Sunday. If she was tired after the fortnight's effort, it sure didn't show. Winning Wimbledon will give you a shot of adrenaline. She got a ride home on a private jet, which helps. Her next scheduled event is Montreal in three weeks. Let's hope she's got a vacation scheduled in there.

Djokovic’s bid to bring back the dance

Maybe, if Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon a few more times, he might finally get Wimbledon to bring back the tradition of the champions' dance in a formal way. Even though the men and women are competing on the same stage, it so often seems as though they're playing a separate tournament. For example, the WTA Tour holds its own, separate, pre-Wimbledon event and it seems no male players are allowed. When the "Champions Dinner" was the "Champions Ball", it was a staple of the celebration. And it's fun, isn't it? Garbiñe Muguruza totally would be on board
