Laura Robson and Jamie Murray have asked for a wild card into the Wimbledon mixed doubles competition.

Ai Sugiyama will represent the sport of tennis as an Athlete Role Model at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games, which will be held in Singapore in August.

Li Na will donate her Madrid prize money to the China Foundation for Poverty Alleviation. The organization is helping earthquake victims in Yushu.

Anne Keothavong has been moved to the main draw of the French Open.

Since today is Mother's Day in the U.S., Women Who Serve gives you an update on Tzipi Obziler, who was repeatedly left off of the list of mothers on the tour until the day she retired. I suppose the tour authorities (who still don't list Obziler's motherhood in her official tour bio) and the media thought they couldn't sidestep the "issue" anymore. Obziler is now a council member in the municipality of her home city, Givatayim, in Israel.
