+ MONDAY NETCORDS: Watch the teeth. Always.

- The USTA announced they will be streaming more than 150 matches during the US Open - and all for FREE. Tennis is starting to figure out this online thing, huh? [Tennis Week]

- Ivo Minar has become the latest baller to be accused of taking a banned substance during tourney play. The the sample was taken after a Davis Cup quarterfinal victory over Argentina on July 10-12 and contained a derivative of the banned stimulant pseudoephedrine. "I have never consciously taken a banned substance. This is why I rejected the accusation of doping in my reaction sent to the ITF," said Ivo. I guess we'll see you in two years...if you're found guilty that is...[ESPN]

- Serena Williams' memoir "On the Line" out on September 1st; Andre Agassi's autobiography out in November [, AP]

- The ever-growing BryanBros band and brand are featured in The New York Times Magazine preview article "Unseparated Since Birth" and the New Yorker article "Perfect Match". Talk about a serious media machine. [NYT, New Yorker]

- Steve Tignor wonders if Elena Dementieva's Rogers Cup win over Maria Sharapova this weekend will springboard her to a US Open championship and a maiden major. Well the last two times the tourney was held in Toronto (it moves to Montreal every other year) the winner went on to grab the title at Flushing Meadow - Kim Clijsters in '05 + Justine Henin in '07. If the Russian's serve nerve can hold steady, I think she can pull through in the end. [TENNIS]

- Jon Wertheim goes on the defensive for the line judge in all of us in his new Monday "best of 3" list. Back off you camera-wielding freaks! [SI]

- Tennis Served Fresh is visiting the Pilot Pen this week and grabbed some shirtless shots of Nando, Chucho, GiGi and an ass shot of A-Bon (had to throw one in for the boys...and girls.) [TSF]
