“I think when you’re young and experience these type of things, you’re onto the next thing,” she said. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve really savored the moment.”

“Parker joins an exclusive group of female athletes to adorn covers of sports games. Shawn Johnson was on a Gymnastics by Wii game in 2010, and Jelena Dokic was on a tennis game in the early 2000s.”

And don’t give me that women’s basketball doesn’t have the same physicality that men’s basketball has, as Parker routinely dunks on Shaquille O’Neal as an analyst for TNT.

Report: Multiple Wimbledon matches under investigation for fixing

The International Tennis Integrity Agency is investigating at least two Wimbledon matches for allegedly being fixed, CBS Sports reported via German newspaper Die Weit.

According to the report, an investigation has been underway after "several very specific and suspicious bets" were made involving matches that took place earlier in the month. In both instances -- one being a men's doubles match, the other being a singles match -- extremely high bets on specific scores were made at very specific times.

While the ITIA didn't comment further on the matches being investigated, it is noted that this isn't the first time this year it has dealt with allegations of match-fixing. According to CBS, the ITIA has received over 30 such reports since January.

The ITIA was put into place because match-fixing has been an issue in the tennis world for quite some time. Notably, in June of this year, Russian tennis pro Yana Sizikowa was arrested and charged with “sports bribery and organized fraud” regarding a match she played at the 2020 French Open. Sizikowa has since been released and denies the allegations of match-fixing.

Chelena Goldman grew up on a street where the boys played street hockey and yelling at baseball and football over the radio was a standard -- making life as a sports geek the perfect fit. She believes in dominance on the blue line, good red wine, and the theory that you can never be too overdressed for any occasion. You can find her gabbing away on Twitter at @ChelenaGoldman.
