Miscellany

The Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic just concluded; four former number 1 players were on hand to help Evert raise money for at-risk children. Evert, Martina Navratilova, Monica Seles, and Lindsay Davenport all participated.

Yanina Wickmayer has begun an appeal of her one-year suspension.

Virginia Ruano Pascual is expected to retire in the near future. The word is that her doubles partner, Anabel Medina Garrigues, will team with Caroline Wozniacki.

In case you were wondering...Sam Sumyk is still Vera Zvonareva's coach; he was just unable to accompany her during the last part of the season. Zvonareva is currently resting after having ankle surgery in Rotterdam.

ESPN is preparing a documentary on the rivalry between Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova.

Who is Ms. Backspin for 2009? Find out here.

Hmmm, I hope this doesn't mean that Wozniacki is going to play both singles AND doubles at all her events in 2010. She played too much this season, and she didn't have a regular doubles partner all year. Maybe she just won't play as many events.

I'm assuming the ESPN doc is in the "30 for 30" series, which has been very good so far. Usually, they've been directed by famous, semi-famous or "inside source" individuals. Any word on who might be doing the Evert/Navratilova one?

After having pulled such a Jankovician stunt, she's decided to cut down on the number of events she plays.

Don't know about whether the documentary is in the "30 for 30" series, but I imagine it is. I don't know who's doing it. When I find out, I'll post it.
