Re "Stuck With a Poor Education When Pro Dreams Evaporate," by Robert Sloan Jr., Commentary, Aug. 26: Athletes receive many perks, one of which is usually to be able to register for classes before anyone else. They have first choice for the classes and times that fit their busy athletic and partying schedules. If they were actually interested in their own education, nongraduation would not be a problem. Sloan states that athletes learn discipline; clearly that is not the case. John Greenwood Long Beach

The new ABC series "Prey" strives hard for the inky, mysterious, foreboding sci-fi noir look and tone of a major hit on rival Fox. You know this isn't "The X-Files," though, when a scene pops up with Dr. Sloan Parker--the brilliant, all-business DNA scientist investigating a new species of human created by global warming--in jeopardy in her underwear.

Has anyone noticed the dearth of juicy theatrical anecdotes in recent years? One explanation may be that many modern theater people have such an ascetic devotion to craft that they've lost the knack of sheer theatrical extravagance. Blame it on the Method. The very stringency of that soul-searching process keeps backstage antics to a minimum. In an era when "keeping things real" is a priority, the marvelously mannered behavior of theater folks past seems quaint indeed. But how delicious it is to contemplate that behavior in retrospect.

I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe "the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews," down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood. How deeply Jewish is Hollywood?

Jerry Sloan doesn't like it much when somebody makes a fuss about him. He has the longest tenure of any head coach in major pro sports, the fifth-highest win total in NBA history and is on the verge of another milestone. Sloan is about to get his 1,000th victory as an NBA coach, yet takes little credit for any of them. "That's not why I'm coaching and that's not why I played," grumbles Sloan, who had 997 victories through Friday.

NEW YORK---Sloane Stephens, who upset Serena Williams at the Australian Open earlier this year, seems headed for a rematch. Stephens, seeded 15th at the U.S. Open, dominated fellow American Jamie Hampton and won 6-1, 6-3 over the 23rd-seeded Hampton. Williams had been hampered by a sprained ankle when she lost to Stephens in the Australian Open quarterfinals 3-6, 7-5, 6-4. Stephens ended a 20-match Williams winning streak with that victory and the two haven't been chummy since then.

NEW YORK - Sloane Stephens did her part. She took all the space away from fellow American Jamie Hampton, commanded the court with her ferocious forehand and never let down for a moment. Stephens needed only 63 minutes to beat the 23rd-seeded Hampton, 6-1, 6-3, on Friday and reach the fourth round at the U.S. Open for the first time. Serena Williams' chance to do her part didn't arrive until much later Friday night and into Saturday morning. She didn't get on court to start warming up until 11:35 p.m. EDT, after 2001 U.S. Open champ Lleyton Hewitt took 4 hours 3 minutes to upset sixth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 champion, 6-4, 5-7, 3-6, 7-6 (2)

WIMBLEDON, England - The abnormal has become the new normal at Wimbledon, where one of the women's semifinalists was playing too poorly a year ago to compete here and the lone remaining past champion was eliminated Tuesday in the quarterfinals "Tennis, it's kind of a crazy game," 15th-seeded Marion Bartoli said after defeating American Sloane Stephens, 6-4, 7-5, in a rain-delayed match to advance to Thursday's semifinals. "But that's also the magic of it. " There was far more craziness than magic Tuesday in the quarterfinals, producing a final four so unlikely one of them couldn't grasp it. Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium, who has one career tournament win to her credit at age 27, upset No. 8 seed and 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4, on Centre Court to set up a semifinal against Bartoli on Thursday.

WIMBLEDON, England - While Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys and Laura Robson offered tantalizing glimpses into tennis' future, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams reinforced their current dominance. Top-ranked Djokovic and Williams glided into the fourth round, ending a wacky week of upsets that on Saturday took out the fifth of the 10 top-seeded men.
