Women Who Serve--1 year old today

Today is the first anniversary of the publication of Women Who Serve. Thanks to all my readers and commenters for your loyalty. Thanks also to fellow bloggers Aaress, Marija, Todd, and ken, and to Tennis X and TennisGrandstand for continual support. All of you helped make my transition from social activism/political blogging to tennis blogging easier than I thought it would be (not that one can ever really get away from social and political issues, and not that this particular one would ever want to). I look forward to doing continued commentary, reporting and--of course--cat blogging.

Happy anniversary! I will use this opportunity to congratulate you on your great work with Women Who Serve - among everything else it's unique, in a good way of course. :) I will continue to support your blog, and I'm happy we have such a nice collaboration.

Keep up the great work!

Diane, I have one special task for you. :) Can you check french open site - match statistics. For exemple: http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/scores/stats/day9/2096ms.html
I know for sure that Ivanovic had 20 winners (incl. service) AT LEAST. I saw other match statistics and I think that something is wrong there. What do you think?
Sorry for interrupting b-day party. :)

Diane said...

The official stats say 4 winners, uros, which is, of course, incorrect. Perhaps it will be corrected later, but I doubt it.
