Muguruza condemns Sharapova to worst slam loss in six years
Nadal lost the opener 6-4 against 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman but began to play better after a rain delay of just under an hour. Serena Williams might have fancied meeting this version of Sharapova, who made six double faults and 27 unforced errors.

RIP Anthony Bourdain", Lotus of Siam wrote in a Facebook post on June 8. If the answers don't leave you feeling confident that a depressed person is safe, experts advise involving a professional as soon as possible. There was no problem.

The Italian actress shared a picture of her boyfriend in Hong Kong on May 30, roughly a week before he died. "He was so happy". But millions of people will remember him fondly and set a place for him in their thoughts. "I mean giddy. He was texting me and emailing me, which he doesn't normally do, about publicity for episodes, but he was like, 'This is a high water mark, this is the best thing I've ever done'".

"He said he came to realise that what I do is a reflection of how people eat", she said. "And he simply replied, 'I'm just calling out good food like it is, that's all'".

Bourdain seemed to be planning for the future before the events of last week.He told Maxim a year ago that he was working on a new project that would bring him back to the region, though not revealing if it was a new book or television-related.
