Big amen to that, yes. [;)] Oh, I don't doubt that at least one Williams would be back on the squad later in the year. But that assumes that Lindsay and coach Mary Jo Fernandez (with a home court advantage) can marshal Team USA to defeat the Germans. Right now, I'm not holding my breath for even that.

Well, r u sure that the sisters didn't ask for it? I doubt that they are fit enough to have a good season in WTA tournaments and play Fed Cup. If i was them, i'd probably br relieved if the team had somebody else they could count on....Don't know, maybe i' wrong....[*-)]

Maybe we'll know more when the American sports press chooses to report it -- beyond a passing mention from AP's London Bureau! ROFL Or not, heh-heh. This is why I've been saying Davenport was pulled back from retirement for the Olympic year.


Venus is visibly injured. (She lost the first set to Ivanovic; Ana did not win it. In fact, Ana didn't really wake up and comprehend she had a chance to win until she was down 0-3 in the second set. Weird.)


Serena has had another mental meltdown. I've been expecting this for the last six months and here it is. [:P]

lol Always nice and cute when you talk about Serena......[:P]


I totally agree about Venus. Ivanovic didn't win, - earn, call it whatever u want - much of anything in that match...


P.S. , i know it's irrelevant, but Ivanovic is much "luckier" in her draws  in the Slams so far. She's probably gonna reach the final - 2nd in her career, and both times it should've been Jankovic. Maybe when Serena was asked who she thinks is overrated, she should've given a different name. At least we would agree on sth then................[:P]
