Roger Federer stands alone in tennis history after downing Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in the longest fifth set in Grand Slam history to claim his record 15th major.
The win — Federer's sixth in seven years at SW19 — propels the Swiss past Pete Sampras' tally of 14 majors. Sampras, along with his wife, actress Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, made a last-minute trip across the pond from California to watch the historic win. "I have to give it to him," Sampras said afterwards. "He's won all the majors. He's won 15 now. He's going to win a few more here. So in my book he is [the greatest]."

Come Thursday, July 9, a gaggle of 13 (mostly) new houseguests will move into Big Brother 11's sleek, modern and eco-friendly pad. But as cool as the CBS reality show's new house looks, you can't say that a pool-themed bedroom is for everyone. And that got us thinking: What humble (or not-so humble) TV abode would you like to call home?

Fred Travalena, a famed impressionist and entertainer nicknamed "The Man of a Thousand Faces," has died. He was 66.
Travalena died Sunday in Los Angeles from a recurrence of an aggressive form of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, his publicist, Roger Neal, told the Associated Press. Travalena was first diagnosed in 2002 with the disease, which went into remission the following year before re-surfacing last July.
