"You change, all of a sudden," Federer said [to the AP about being father of twin girls], snapping his fingers, "from needing nine hours of sleep, to saying, 'five is plenty."'

"Federer," of course, is the current (and perhaps all-time) No. 1 tennis player — appearing left on this week's objet d'eBay, a pillowcase. He begins his defense of the U.S. Open men's single title with his less than two-month old twin daughters, Charlene Riva and Myla Rose, in attendance (actually, probably in the hotel room). It's been a very good year since his last win and the betting is that he will cap it off with another title in Flushing Meadows, Queens. He (and you) will surely need a good night's sleep after that.
