Ana Ivanovic has withdrawn from the Mutua Madrilena Madrid Open.

Ivanovic and Victoria Azarenka played tennis on a rooftop in Rome this week. Tennis on rooftops, tennis on top of cars--does anyone else find these stunts as silly as I do?

Iveta Benesova was not allowed to play her first round match in Estoril until she put on different shorts; the ones she was wearing were deemed too short.

Sabine Lisicki is now number 38 in the world. She jumped 25 places since she won Charleston.

Abigail Lorge says that Serena Williams has a 13.5% chance of winning the Grand Slam this year.

I don't like any of this weird stuff, I don't really know, what they are supposed to represent, tennis on water, tennis on cars, tennis on the roof on mini tennis court, that's just silly! Childish ideas of someone, who cannot just follow the sport and find it interesting enough!

Somewhere, a P.R. person who wants to get some publicity for a product or a location, presents an idea ("Let's have Venus play tennis on a Sealy Posturepedic!"), and another gimmick is created.
