I didn't think it was possible for things to get more twisted than they were last week. But then again this is “Gossip Girl,” so I should've known better. The episode began with an appearance by Rufus, who got his obligatory one line in. Of course he was making a batch of waffles. That seems to be the only thing he knows how to do now that he's on the Upper East Side. Speaking of Rufus, where's Lily? I guess her house arrest isn't too exciting. As it should be. Dan spent the entire hour whining about his book and lusting after Blair … pretty much the exact same thing he did last week.

Ellicott City's Beatrice Capra on Friday took the first step toward qualifying as a wild card for the Australian Open, putting her on the same road she took to the U.S. Open last summer, when she was the first Marylander to play in a Grand Slam main singles draw in more than 13 years. Capra won her first-round match Friday in a USTA eight-woman playoff in Atlanta, beating Shelby Rogers, 6-3, 6-2, in her first match since losing to Maria Sharapova in the third round in New York. "I'm so excited to be here," said Capra, 18, who attended McDonogh before moving to Florida three years ago to sharpen her focus on tennis.

Ellicott City's Beatrice Capra has been coping with firsts all week and handling them: She won a wildcard entry into the U.S. Open to claim her first main-draw spot in a Grand Slam tournament and then breezed through her first two matches beating two women ranked inside the Top 100, including one inside the Top 20. But Saturday afternoon in the Open's third round a handful of firsts were just too many for the 18-year-old. Playing on Arthur Ashe Stadium's Center Court for the first time against No. 14 seed and past Open champion Maria Sharapova in winds of approximately 25 mph, Capra went down, 6-0, 6-0. It was Sharapova's first career shutout at a Grand Slam and it was the first double-0 score in the third round of the Open since 1984 when Martina Navratilova beat Jennifer Mundel, 6-0, 6-0. Still, Capra was smiling when she entered the post-match interview room.
