Top-seeded Serena Williams, who will begin pursuit of her 17th Grand Slam title on Tuesday when she faces Mandy Minella of Luxembourg on Wimbledon's famed Center Court, on Sunday apologized for comments about a teenage rape victim in Steubenville, Ohio, and “everything that was said” in a recent Rolling Stone profile of her. She also said she planned to keep her focus on tennis this week. “There's one thing I'm really good at, and that's hitting the ball over a net, in a box. I'm excellent,” she said at a pre-tournament news conference . Williams also repeated that she had apologized to the Steubenville victim for saying the girl “shouldn't have put herself in that position.” Williams also said she had reached out to rival Maria Sharapova on Thursday to apologize for comments in that article that were presumed to be about Sharapova.

When record producers venture out of the control room and start performing themselves, the results are generally disappointing. Take Jerry Fuller. In the late 1960s, his fine-tuning of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap's rock 'n' roll balladry set the national pop charts ablaze. But Fuller's own assault on the charts a decade later created nary a spark. Or Kim Fowley. In the 1970s, he did some neat things with the Byrds, Steppenwolf, Helen Reddy and the Runaways.

The structure is simple, the guitar riffs basic, the lyrics at best inane, but the Troggs' " Wild Thing" remains a garage-rock classic more than 45 years after its 1966 release made the British group and lead singer Reg Presley international stars. Presley, whose raunchy, suggestive voice powered the paean to teenage lust, died Monday at his Andover, England, home after a yearlong struggle with lung cancer, his agent, Keith Altham, announced. He was 71. Part of the British invasion spurred by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, the Troggs perfected a simple, hard-driving approach to the three-minute rock song that was miles away from the lyrical art-rock of the Beatles.

Remember the Woodstock Era? Remember the folks who dropped acid, painted their faces and groped naked in the mud while Crosby, Stills & Nash sang, "Teach your children well?" Well, they and their younger siblings have finally grown up. They've had kids. And now they must ask themselves a tough question: Is "hip parent" synonymous with "embarrassing dork" or merely an oxymoron?

Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, the commander of Western forces in Afghanistan, was summoned to Washington on Tuesday to explain unflattering comments about senior members of the Obama administration that appeared in a magazine profile. Earlier in the day, before his planned departure from Afghanistan, McChrystal issued a statement apologizing for the remarks that appeared in a forthcoming profile in Rolling Stone magazine. The dismissive comments were a "mistake reflecting poor judgment," he said.

The megalomaniac I know would have gone off for 60 when told the guy he was playing against was now deemed better. He would have dunked off the jump ball, taking it as a personal challenge to set the record straight. He would never let such a thought take seed, slapping the upstart aside with an ESPN highlight show, forcing the SportsCenter announcers to proclaim his greatness again. So what happened to Kobe Bryant , and for that matter, his slapstick supporting cast Friday night?

Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, called Thursday for an investigation into allegations that an Army general ordered military personnel trained in psychological operations to manipulate visiting U.S. lawmakers into providing additional funding and support. Rolling Stone magazine reported online that Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, the commander of the American mission to train Afghan security forces, put pressure on "psy-op" soldiers, in violation of federal law, "to target visiting senators and other VIPs," including Sens.

A 22-year-old San Francisco woman has sued MTV Networks and parent Viacom Inc., alleging invasion of privacy after her image appeared on a Sunset Boulevard billboard, in People and Rolling Stone magazines and on an episode of the MTV program, "Bands on the Run." Dana Lynn Daly contends that a video crew followed her into the women's bathroom of a nightclub and taped her as she kissed a male band member in a bathroom stall. The footage was featured on the April premiere of "Bands on the Run."
