    Seeking a better string. Maybe I changed too many variables...?

    Last night I played with my new frame, freshly strung (Monofilament, 48 lbs). What a difference! (Earlier this week, for the first time in my life, I CUT OUT a full set of strings. That's how bad the Multi was at 44 lbs.) I cannot wait to try the Multi at 50 lbs.....

    Ramos for King!!! He was WAY more tolerant than I would have been. Serena's mistake was to "end" the debate with her demand that Ramos not talk to her. He didn't. But Serena wouldn't leave it alone and lit into him again ... and again. I have never seen someone play so many Victim Cards...

    Serena Williams

    It's really too bad that someone with as much talent as Serena is so lacking in class. I miss Venus. How come all the class in the family is hers?

    What do you think it takes for the WTA to be in same respect level as ATP
