Apropos of Nothing – 8 June 2021

Tennis title-winning machine Dylan Alcott has taken out his third consecutive French Open title in the men’s quad wheelchair singles. Beating Dutchman Sam Schroder in straight sets, a chuffed champ said “It’s incredible. J’adore Roland Garros, baby.”

Can you remember what you were doing at 19yo? It probably wasn’t becoming the 2nd teen to win the US Women’s Open… Yuka Saso has done just that, also becoming the first player from the Philippines to win a golf major.

And winning at creative selling is Italian artist Salvatore Garau. His “immaterial sculpture” has been snapped up for €15,000. Keep in mind it’s not made of anything, or in more artistic language, it “finds form in its own nothingness”. Will the buyers need a van to get their new acquisition home?
