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

• VIDEO: Andy Roddick was just trying to give his pre-tournament press conference in Atlanta when his good buddy Mardy Fish decided to give him a shirtless hello.

• BONUS VIDEO: More American on American laughs: Sloane Stephens interviews Christina McHale in Carlsbad.

• Good breakdown here by Kamakshi Tandon on the competing arguments surrounding equal prize money.

Their cries of economic hardship are not misplaced, but ironically the female equivalents they are trying to squeeze out even less. The player who finished ranked around No. 80 on the ATP tour last year -- the one who Simon says can't pay his coach -- had earnings of around $380,000 (singles and doubles combined). On the WTA tour, it meant about $240,000 (singles and doubles combined) -- or about two-thirds of the men's equivalent.

• Roddick in a beret? Roger Federer in cargo pants? Maria Sharapova in...whatever the heck Russia's got going on? Here's a glimpse at what the athletes might be wearing during the London Olympics' opening ceremonies.

• Rick Reilly takes a look at the slumping careers of Wozzilroy. Let the kids be in love, I say.

For instance, in May, Wozniacki was in Paris, playing the French. McIlroy was in Wentworth, England, playing the European PGA Championship. He was there, but his heart was at Roland Garros. Pretty soon, it was Wentworth 40-love. He missed the cut. "Half my body was in Wentworth and half was in Paris," he admitted.

• A bit random that Agnieszka Radwanska was included in this, no?

• Serena Williams will be inducted into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame.

• Non-tennis: Nice set of links here to some of the nutty happenings in London for the Olympics. My favorite: Because of McDonald's sponsorship interest, no french fries will be served at Olympic Park unless accompanied by fish. See or read something that you enjoyed and want to share?
