The Daily Bagel is your dose of the interesting reporting, writing and quipping from around the Internet.

• CNN International talks to the players about the importance of Davis Cup.

• The PGA Tour's total purse is about three times what is offered on the ATP Tour. That is an obscene differential.

• Rory McIllroy and Sasha Vujacic will be in Istanbul cheering on their ladies. This excites me very much.

• Be honest: Would you have recognized Svetlana Kuznetsova?

• Are the men on the verge of burnout?

• The headband ain't working, Milos. • Non-tennis: A food critic at The New York Times looks back on a career of tasting.
