His opponent ailing and at times too exhausted to run after shots, Carlos Moya won the Monte Carlo Open in Monaco yesterday with a 6-3, 6-0, 7-5 victory over Cedric Pioline. Pioline, wearing a bandage on the elbow of his serving arm, was coming off a draining semifinal win over Alberto Berasategui on Saturday. "There was a miracle yesterday, but there wasn't today," Pioline said. "I was too tired and I had some pain, but I tried to play. " Moya, the 14th seed, lost only one set all week and beat Thomas Muster, Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Alex Corretja en route to the final.

Monaco Cool is rather offbeat by travel book standards. In fact, it's rather offbeat by any literary standards. Mysterious, too. The author spent a year living in Monaco, and wrote a funny book about his experiences. That much is clear. It is also clear that Bartleby Press will publish the book this week under its Enigma Books imprint as a $14.95 hardcover. After that, things get a little murky. Such as the identity of the author, for example. The book is attributed to one Robert Westgate.

The Roman Catholic YA said authorities in the tiny Mediterranean principality have granted residence to Ballesteros, who currently is on tour in Japan.

YA quoted Internal Revenue Director Jose Borrel as saying that, in 1986, a Spanish golfer whom he did not name "declared earnings of 7,500,000 pesetas ($66,370)

On Monday night, screenwriter Arash Amel gave Twitter a look inside something Hollywood rarely likes to talk about: what it feels like to be part of a disaster. Amel wrote the screenplay for the ill-fated Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco . Those in the know already feel bad for Amel after reading that sentence. For those not: Grace of Monaco , starring Nicole Kidman and directed by La Vie en Rose 's Olivier Dahan, was scheduled for release in fall 2013 and meant for Oscar glory but didn't debut until the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, where it was booed.

Now, with tragic suddenness, she is a widow at 33, with three small children. Casiraghi was very different from Caroline's first husband, incurable playboy Philippe Junot. He was faithful. He had the approval of Caroline's father, Prince Rainier III. He was nearly four years younger than Caroline, while Junot was 17 years older.

*  GRACE OF MONACO . 9 p.m. Monday, Lifetime. Nicole Kidman stars in this oddly filmed look at a tumultuous period in the life of the Philadelphia-born princess - and on her supposed role in helping to end a standoff between tiny Monaco and Charles de Gaulle's France. Widely panned at Cannes, it has landed here after a very public fight between director Olivier Dahan and producer Harvey Weinstein. Lifetime's put on much, much worse than this, though, and I don't blame you a bit if you can't resist.

Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly are twin idols of the American imagination. They defined between them the range and shape of desire in the 1950s. More than six decades later, their power as enduring cultural icons has grown so strong we continue to obsess over their lives and careers, their loves and their fears. So it's no surprise that Lifetime, cable TV's dedicated chronicler of the typical woman's wants and dreams, would pay homage to these women with a pair of new biopics.

CANNES, France - Eyebrows go up when a film like Grace of Monaco , which opened the 67th Cannes film festival Wednesday night, starts with the descriptor, "A fictional account inspired by real events. " It's an odd defensive crouch for a movie about an Irish German Catholic girl who ranks as the number-one Philadelphia blowout of all time, trading in life as the daughter of well-heeled contractor Jack Kelly for not one fairy tale, but two: Hollywood star, and princess of all she surveyed in the tiny principality of Monaco, wedged on a rock between France and Italy.

Driving straight from 3901 Henry Ave. in East Falls down to the Schuylkill, particularly at dusk, when the river settles like glass, with three single scullers rowing right out of an Eakins, it's not hard to see why John B. Kelly built his family home there. The neighbors - not to mention fans of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, around the world - have always known that the 21/2-story brick Georgian home at Henry and Coulter Avenues was the Kelly family home. Now, everyone who passes by will also know, with the addition of a blue state historical marker outside the home commemorating the Kelly family.

Usain Bolt has more than Yohan Blake to worry about ahead of the London Olympics. Now he's got an injury to contend with and likely won't run again until the Games. Exactly one month before the 100-meter final at the Olympics, Bolt pulled out of the July 20 Monaco Diamond League meet Thursday with "a slight problem" that occurred during the recent Jamaican Olympic trials, acording to his coach, Glen Mills. Mills didn't elaborate on the nature of the injury. The withdrawal followed the double blow of losing in the 100 and 200 to training partner Blake at the trials, a reality check before the Olympics.
