With a win Sunday evening over Jelena Jankovic, Selena Williams won herself another U.S. Open trophy. The victory also put her back on top of the world rankings for the first time in over five years. “I’m so excited. I wasn’t even going for number one and it’s just like an added bonus,” said 26-year-old Williams, who hurled her racket high in the air and bounded up and down after crunching down a backhand winner on match point. The match was rescheduled from Saturday because it was wiped out due to remnants of tropical storm Hannah affecting the area. The bad weather meant it was the first time since 1974 that the women’s final in New York was not played on a Saturday. The weather wasn’t the only drama associated with the match. It seems Jankovic spent a lot of time laughing during the match at missed opportunities against Williams – much to the amusement of the 23,000 fans packed into the arena.
“I should have gotten an Oscar for all this drama throughout the week. I should have gotten a trophy for the acting, for my drama. I think I’ve done a great job,” Jankovic said after contesting her first grand slam final. Maybe Jankovic thought she was on stage acting, but she was really in a tennis match with Serena Williams who won 6-4 7-5.


Jesse Jackson

Jesse Jackson

Rev. Jesse Jackson was released from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago on Saturday morning after being treated for viral gastroenteritis and severe dehydration, reports the Chicago Tribune. The civil rights activist checked into the hospital on Wednesday with severe stomach pains after returning from voter registration events in Ohio and Georgia. Upon his release Saturday, Jackson said: “I have high regard for these doctors.” A news release from his Rainbow/PUSH organization said Jackson was to resume normal activities Saturday, appearing on his nationally televised talk show and at a regular Rainbow/PUSH forum.


Nielsen just released some online information about the recent national political conventions and the major candidates. Among the highlights:
As they were in the TV ratings, Barack Obama and John McCain are essentially tied in online “buzz.” Obama has a slight edge over McCain in the volume of bloggers who mentioned him during during the two respective conventions. Sarah Palin trailed the two major candidates slightly with an 80% index rating — which was about three times as large as Joe Biden’s.
Web traffic to was up dramatically during the last week in August, but it was still only half of the traffic generated to
Similarly, the McCain campaign stepped up its online advertising during the month of August but it still lags far behind the Obama campaign.


Denzel Washington is confirmed to star in “Book of Eli,” a post-apocalyptic drama that will be directed by Allen and Albert Hughes, reports Variety. Washington will play a lone hero in a not-too-distant apocalyptic future who must fight across America to bring society the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption. Alcon Entertainment is financing the film and Warner Bros. will distribute. Joel Silver is producing with Washington, Susan Downey and Alcon co-founders Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. Shooting begins in January. Washington most recently starred with John Travolta in the Tony Scott-directed “The Taking of Pelham 123.” “Eli” will be the first drama for The Hughes siblings since 2001’s “From Hell.”


Janet without Michael and Jermaine with BMI 2008 Award

Janet without Michael and Jermaine with BMI 2008 Award

All of the Jackson brothers except Michael and Jermaine showed up to the BMI Urban Awards ceremony Thursday night, where the singing brothers were honored with the prestigious Icon award. Although T-Pain’s was the big winner during the 8th annual ceremony, which took place at the Wilshire Theatre in Beverly Hills, headlines from the evening were focused on Michael Jackson’s big no-show. Parents Katherine and Joseph Jackson were on hand, as were sisters LaToya, Rebbie and Janet, who got choked up while introducing her brothers Tito, Randy, Jackie and Marlon as they received their Icon award. “Family is the most important commodity that all of us have,” she said. “I am so proud to be able to salute my brothers.”


Former track star Marion Jones is a free woman following her release from prison early Friday morning, according to a U.S. federal Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman. The one-time Olympic athlete was ordered behind bars in March in Fort Worth, Texas, after she admitted lying to federal investigators about her use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Jones, 31, served nearly the entire six months of her sentence and was released from a halfway house in San Antonio. Her sentence also included 800 hours of community service and two years’ probation. The sprinter won three gold and two bronze medals at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. She returned her medals — golds in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 1,600-meter relay and bronzes in the long jump and 400-meter relay. The International Olympic Committee has erased her results from the books.
