In the wake of a profoundly entertaining U.S. Open to close out the Grand Slam season, here are a quartet of stories that you shouldn't miss despite the major event's two-week onslaught. Without further ado ... 

[1] COURT SENSE, MEET STYLE SENSE  Pulling a trick from Maria Sharapova's bag, Sloane Stephens stepped out on the New York Fashion Week runway in support of brand Boy Meets Girl. Stephens, in a flirty purple skirt, joined actress Brittany Snow and designer Stacy Igel for the style bonanza. 

[2] RETURN OF THE MAC  Heralded impressionist Josh Berry nails everything—the diction, the delivery—in sending up John McEnroe, Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, and others in his latest clip of tennis-star takes:

[3] BABY LOVE  New mom Casey Dellacqua of Australia hasn't let the baby love that she and her partner Amanda are experiencing go to her head. Instead, she's all the more energized to compete on court, saying, "If anything, I don't know, it makes me a bit more motivated, because I've got something to play for. I'm out there for my family now, and it's been an exciting time." Good on you, Aussie mama.

[4] MAXING OUT  Belarus's ATP star, Max Mirnyi, got the good favor of being featured on a postage stamp in his native land, like colleagues Roger Federer and Andy Murray before him. Your loyal Spin keeper, as a one-time voracious stamp collector—hey, everyone gets a childhood—was thrilled to see this slice of news.

What did you think of Sloane's runway fashion—did she earn style points?
