Sil­i­con Val­ley is back – as is GOT; kinky kit for the bed­room; the best drone in the sky; Han­nah Davis; An­gry Birds the Movie – yes, that’s a real thing.

As we see it – knock­ing balls com­pet­i­tively over a net is a pur­suit worth, well, pur­su­ing. Two rea­sons for this. It’s healthy (at least un­til ‘fourth set’ beers in the club­house), and be­cause you never know who you may come up against. And by that we mean Han­nah Davis – the much-hyped Sports Il­lus­trated model. It’s not that 25-year-old Davis per­son­ally courted con­tro­versy – though her risqué 2015 cover re­veal was just that, a down­stairs peek-aboo mo­ment that left lit­tle to the imag­i­na­tion. The usual con­ser­va­tives likened the pose to pornog­ra­phy – while Funny Or Die did what they do best through a faux in­ter­view with the barely-there bikini-wearer (sam­ple made-up quote: “I think the main rea­son I got the cover is be­cause in my photo I made it look like I’m about to show you my pussy”). In re­al­ity, Davis laughed off the back­lash. “They’re say­ing it’s porno­graphic, I’m laugh­ing at it be­cause it’s a Swim­suit is­sue… If you don’t want to see girls in biki­nis go pick up an­other mag­a­zine. I don’t know what to tell you.” She then be­came en­gaged to for­mer pro-base­baller Derek Jeter, giv­ing hope for av­er­age-look­ing bald men across the globe, should they too be worth millions. We re­turn to the ten­nis. Born and raised in the Virgin Is­lands (ap­par­ently peo­ple live there full-time), Davis was a ju­nior-ranked US player through­out her youth. Un­til be­ing scouted. “I started mod­el­ling to buy rac­quets,” she’s said, “and it kinda grew from there.” We’re think­ing she’s OK for such these days. Still, any­one for a hit?
