They just keep coming and coming and coming. Not illegal immigrants. Yoga scandals. Last week, it was Lululemon Athletica's “Pantsgate.” This week, it's a sexual harassment lawsuit against Choudhury, father to the Los Angeles-based hot yoga movement. Sarah Baughn, a former student, has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, alleging that for more than four years, Choudhury sexually harassed her and humiliated her in front of other students.

Tennis star John McEnroe has purchased Johnny Carson's house in Carbon Beach. That's just south of Point Dume, where the TV talk-show host bought Carla and Dorn Schmidt's modern, wood and glass home for $8.6 million last fall. The winningest player in U. S. Davis Cup history paid more than $1 million (and under $3 million) for the Carbon Beach house, according to Brooks Barton, vice president and western regional director of Previews Inc.

John McEnroe said Thursday that there should be fewer tennis tournaments for female professional players because women seem to be unable to deal with both the physical and mental demands of the game. "I don't want to push women to play more than they're capable of," McEnroe said during a conference call promoting CBS' coverage of the U.S. Open. "Women have it better in tennis than any other sport, but you shouldn't push them to play more than they're capable of playing," McEnroe said.

Actress Tatum O'Neal and tennis star John McEnroe are the parents of a baby boy, who has been named Kevin John McEnroe.

McEnroe, 27, last played competitively in the Masters Tournament in New York in mid-January, and is expected to resume playing before the U.S. Open in August.

There was something contradictory in the words John McEnroe was using. He was on the phone the other day talking about giving money to charity, which he does in abundance each year, "a minimum of $200,000 to $250,000," he said. He was chastising his sport, his peers and even himself for not doing enough to help causes such as 2000-LOVE, a tennis exhibition he will play next Tuesday night at Capital Centre here to benefit a hunger project. "I think it's terrible," he said.

John McEnroe has long complained about TV's tennis coverage. He's admitted "it's a lot more boring" on television and "tennis isn't nearly as good on TV as other sports are." Now he's promising to try to do something about it. The three-time Wimbledon champion signed a two-year contract in April to be a commentator with NBC. He could make his debut during the network's coverage of the French Open. But don't think this means he is retiring from the court.

John McEnroe, arbiter of good conduct, gracious opponent and counselor to the young, was having a small relapse. His racket had committed that offense punishable by death--an error--so he slammed it to the ground and kicked it half the length of the tennis court. He placed his hands on his hips and began what might have been, had he continued, a wail. But then a remarkable thing happened. He stopped. Not completely, of course. There are certain forceful emotions--those wracking tremors and heaving sighs of pure anguish--that McEnroe will never subdue.

The owner of a closed Manhattan art gallery that once boasted a star-studded clientele was arrested again Tuesday on charges of carrying out an art fraud that now totals $93 million. Lawrence B. Salander of Millbrook, N.Y., is accused of stealing from artists, art owners and investors. The victims include the estate of abstract expressionist Robert De Niro Sr., father of the famed actor, and tennis great John McEnroe. The indictment unsealed Tuesday, the second against Salander in four months, charges him with grand larceny and falsifying business records.

I can't figure out if the L.A. Times has any interest in tennis or not. Over the last decade the coverage has been middling to indifferent. And now, for the past two years, the paper has engaged Chuck Culpepper to cover the French Open and Wimbledon. Do you really think we tennis fans are enchanted by his tourist guide chatter interspersed with reports on the matches? Do you think more readers are drawn in by his histrionic prose? "It screamed off sickly to the right as if carried by vulture and bound for another time zone."

For years, tennis purists saw John McEnroe as the sport's ultimate left-handed complement. He won lots, but also loudly. He was the king of the code violation. He was sent packing from the Australian Open, not by an opponent but a chair umpire. He could serve and volley only slightly better than he could yell and scream. He was the ultimate New Yorker. His city never kept pushing and yelling and working the angles, and neither did he. His edges had sharp corners.

Papa John's pizza, responding to threats of a regional boycott of its chain, is offering large, one-topping pizzas for 23 cents to Cleveland-area customers Thursday as homage to Cavaliers forward LeBron James. Last Friday in Washington D.C., the pizza company sponsored T-shirts with James' jersey No. 23 and the word "Crybaby" over it, in place of the name.

John McEnroe completed his daunting ATP Tour comeback in familiar winning form, teaming with Jonas Bjorkman on Sunday in San Jose to beat a couple of former Stanford All-Americans, 7-6 (2), 4-6, 10-7, in the finals of the SAP Open. The match ended with a vintage piercing McEnroe backhand volley up the middle between Paul Goldstein and Jim Thomas. When his volley ended the match, 47-year-old McEnroe's face lit up and he embraced Bjorkman.

On the day before the semifinals at the 1984 French Open, John McEnroe found himself without a practice partner. Learning of McEnroe's predicament, Romanian Ion Tiriac, a friend and adviser to players such as Ilie Nastase and Guillermo Vilas, said he recently had begun coaching a young player, a novice really, who would consider it a great honor to practice with the world's No. 1 player. How young, McEnroe wanted to know. Sixteen, Tiriac said. "I said, 'Where did you come up with this guy?'

Spring is busting out in the autumn of his career. And John McEnroe, "Superbrat" just a few years ago but now the father of two young sons, is struggling to become a man for all seasons. "When you're young," he said Wednesday night, "you're not even aware of the significance of what you're doing." Now, moments after dismantling David Wheaton, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4, to reach the semifinals of the U.S. Open for the first time in five years (Story, C1), McEnroe clearly was aware of what he had done.

Match over: CNBC is finally pulling the plug on John McEnroe's low-rated talk show, effective at the end of the year. The former tennis star launched the program just last July and had been drawing a mere 75,000 viewers on average at 7 p.m. Coming in the show's place sometime in January is the now once-a-week "Big Idea With Donny Deutsch," hosted by the outspoken advertising executive.
