    Maybe. they're reasoning is that they think she's faked injuries there multiple times in the early rounds because she really doesn't want to play there. I have no idea if it's true or not, but that's what they believe. Apparently, the sponsors have been very vocal in their irritation.

    I liked the williams sisters quite a bit when they first started dominating women's tennis. A lot of people didn't care for them, but I liked seeing some diversity in the game, not just in race but in their style and their personalities. Somewhere along they became celebrities and started acting like it. Serena seemed to evolve into a diva of sorts. But to be fair, this hasn't been uncommon of women's tennis players recently. Sharapova is the same way. I wish Justine Henin would have stuck around longer. Now she could play. I loved her style....very athletic and one of the few who could match Serena when she was at her best.

    On the men's side, Nadal is playing some of the best tennis of his life. His defense is as good as ever and he's punishing the ball.
    Nadal looks as unbeatable as anyone I've seen in a long time.....maybe even as much as Federer when he was 26-27 (same age as Nadal is now). Gasquet actually was competitive with him, but I just don't see how anyone can beat him 3 sets the way he's playing now. Djokovic is the only one who has any chance, but I don't even see him being able to.

    Grape works as a soda. Sort of as a gum. I wonder why it doesn't work as a pie. Grape pie? There's no grape pie. - Larry David
