Pre-Wimbledon miscellany

Chris Oddo asks ten very good questions about Wimbledon.

Tennis Channel is showing Wimbledon classics this week. Today, both the 2004 and 2005 women's finals were featured. Unfortunately, I was not able to watch them, but I did see the last parts of both of them. So many memories...a 17-year-old Maria Sharapova taking it to Serena Williams, and the thriller Venus Williams won against Lindsay Davenport. Those are both unforgettable matches.

Venus Williams and co-author Kelly E. Carter will release their book, Come to Win: Business Leaders, Artists, Doctors, and Other Visionaries On How Sports Can Help You Top Your Profession, on June 29.

Daniela Hantuchova says that the grass court season is her favorite time of the year.

Before traveling to England, Jelena Jankovic spent her post-French Open time practicing on indoor carpet.

And finally, just in time for Wimbledon, here is Clive James' "Bring Me the Sweat of Gabriela Sabatini."
