Anybody have a guess as to what she's got stuffed into her shorts here? Tissue?
You've done a great job covering Heidi in Flickr and YouTube. I'm hoping Majeric is there too since she's one of my favorite lower-ranked players. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3QZc9zRCAs I have no idea what's going on with Aravane, who I guess is one of your faves. I met her in DC last year and actually drove her as a volunteer. Perhaps she'll show up! In any event, you know I'll be checking out both of your accounts!
Tadeja was on a real roll this winter, coming within one match (that Port St. Lucie ITF final) of winning three tournaments in a row. She lost to Sharon Fichman in that match, but she was playing some awfully good tennis then.
Heidi has played IHB for a few years now, so I feel pretty confident she'll be back if she is healthy, but that is the question mark with her this year. She has only played three matches so far in 2013, since jumping up to no. 158 at the end of last year. Starting next week she has to defend points from two ITF titles in a row (Jackson, Pellham), so her ranking is going to plummet fast. Hopefully she can get healthy and find the form she had last Spring.
I think I remember you telling me that on Tennisforum last year when the DC tournament was going on, just before she played the "Tornado." Aravane is my favorite, and I miss her terribly. I got to meet her three years in a row in Miami and even drove to Clearwater last year to give her a banner I made for her Birthday at a tournament where she was playing. She has had a hip injury which has kept her out for a long time, and when she played the Paris indoor earlier this year I think she aggravated the injury by coming back too soon and wound up staying out another month or so. This week she just returned to the court at an ITF in France, but after winning a first round match lost to Julie Coin today in R2. Small steps, but it will take her awhile to shake off the rust from such a lengthy time away from the game. She says on her Twitter she is working hard and motivated to return to her best form.
You'll have to tell me who you get to drive around this year!

Could not agree with you more!
Thanks to the wasp.
Should you be posting explicitly copyrighted images like these?
What exactly is TW's policy on this?
Copyrighted images can still be used if it falls under the Fair Use Doctrine:
The fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.
These images aren't be used for profit, and they aren't being altered from the original. Most of these pics are a direct link to the person's web site. I would think that his image was posted for the purposes of comment or criticism.
^^^ good analysis
The other part of it is that Neal, like the rest of us, knowingly posted on a website (Flickr) that has link/embed codes for each image we post, so we are fully aware that the images are likely to end up "wherever" on the internet when we post them. Putting a watermark or copyright mark on them is one way to claim ownership, retaining a larger size of the image is another, but in the end, pirates are hard to stop. People who take photos and share them on the net generally do it because they are hobbyists who enjoy sharing their work. As long as others aren't pirating and benefitting monetarily from that work, *usually* there is no issue, but I won't specifically speak for anyone but myself on that issue.
I sent Flickr email to Neal to see what he has to say about the sharing of his work. I have no idea of the true source of the Ashley Barty pictures. In the meantime, here are a few Domi pics from Romina (below). Would have contacted her too but I didn't find a way to do so.
Olga and Galina
She looks just like her mother!
I got a FlickrMail response from Neal Trousdale about posting his pictures and based upon what he wrote, I won't be posting any of his pictures. Perhaps we can just post a link to a "thread-worthy" picture on his Flickr Photostream, http://www.flickr.com/photos/tlaenpix/ He is not very happy when his pictures are posted here or "that other place" because no permission is asked for and he doesn't receive remuneration from the websites. If forums don't police the posting of his pics, its up to us to police ourselves in the case of Neal's copyrighted pictures.
That being said, here are direct links to the other Alize Lim pictures.
Yeah every pic of Cornet was her jumping around like a mad woman. Now it seems it's caught up with her. Poor girl.
More photos from Miami via sr_cranks (w/ his permission).
Got to see Klara Zakopolova
defeat Dominika Cibulkova at Indian Wells. She looks terrific. Does anyone have recent pics of here to share? :^ )
