Daily Bagel: Andy Roddick interviews Billie Jean King about the Olympics


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

• Video: Some of the best moments from WTA's All-Access Live at the Paris Indoors. Maria Sharapova does yoga and Marion Bartoli has a guest appearance, but you gotta love the Italians. They're just so... Italian.

• Andy Roddick interviewed Billie Jean King for Fox Sports Live about the Sochi Olympics and Russia's anti-LGBT policies. Nice one.

• That interview took place before King was forced to skip her much publicized trip to the Sochi Olympics because her mother is ill.

• Was Stanislas Wawrinka the most surprising Grand Slam champion of the Open Era? Nope.

• Is the one-handed backhand dead?

• After beating cancer, Alisa Kleybanova is still slowly working her way back on tour.

• Non-tennis: Stay up to date on Sochi at the home of SI's Olympic coverage.
