Roger Federer got his 2011 Wimbledon campaign underway in convincing fashion on Tuesday, taking to Centre Court and taking out Mikhail Kukushkin, 7-6 (2), 6-4, 6-2. 

The Fed Express took a bit longer than usual to get rolling on the grass as the world's third-ranked player needed a tiebreaker to escape from the first set but settled down and blitzed the Russian down the stretch. 

Federer comes into Wimbledon on a roll, having blasted his way into the finals at the French Open with some of the best tennis he's played this season.

Other than that first set hiccup on Tuesday, he looked to be well on his way to continuing that run, but will he find a way to beat Rafael Nadal? If he doesn't, the champ could be headed for yet another title-less Slam run. 

The NFL also provided us with some big news this week, as details of the latest CBA proposal emerged. It seems fairly reasonable (which probably means Jerry Richardson wasn't involved in the negotiating process at all), but will it actually reach a vote? 

If that's not enough to whet your sports appetite, the ridiculous battle over Mike Tyson's facial tattoo and the intellectual property rights to the design has finally (and thankfully) come to an end.
