Legendary Summitt truly one of a kind

Fagan: Summitt inspired a generation

Pat Summitt brought respect to women's college basketball and made young players -- even those who weren't good enough to suit up for the Lady Vols -- want to be the best. Her legacy

I can remember being intimidated only a few times in my career. Once was when I went to meet and interview Pat Summitt. She could not have been more welcoming, candid and interesting. We have lost an amazing person - not just a pioneer for women, but an example to all of us on how to be successful but decent, tough but kind, and above all, gracious always. As a woman I am indebted to her. As a person I am in awe of her.

The Marcus Willis fever at Wimbledon still hasn't diminished. He credits his girlfriend, a dental surgeon, for inspiring him to give tennis one last shot, but interestingly, she was not expected to make the match because she was completely booked. But "I got in this morning and we managed to do the first patient, but [the dental equipment] wasn't working that well, and then it stopped working," she said to the Telegraph. "So we had to cancel all the patients for the afternoon."
