The tour's "Looking Back at a Legend" series is now featuring one of my all-time favorite players--the great Evonne Goolagong.

Oracene Price says that her favorite player to watch (outside of Venus and Serena, of course) is Jelena Jankovic.

You can see some of Alona Bondarenko's wedding photos here.

Now that Pilot Pen has withdrawn its sponsorship, the New Haven tournament is looking for a sponsor.

Defending champion Kim Clijsters says she may have some strapping on her leg at the U.S. Open, but that she is fully fit.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova is having trouble with her shoulder, as well as her hip. Pavlyuchenkova withdrew from New Haven competition.

That's too bad about Pavlyuchenkova. I hope she feels a little better by Monday. She's been doing really well this season, and it'd be a shame if she couldn't compete at the US Open.

I'm troubled by this. Pavlyuchenkova has some issues with her serve, but otherwise, she's doing well, and I really don't want to see her limping into Flushing Meadows.

Love-love-loved Goolagong. She was such a graceful player. Evert usually would outlast her, but every once in a while Evonne would tie Chris in knots. Another star that I only saw in person thanks to World Team Tennis.

She's the reason I began watcing tennis. Tennis Channel still shows quite a few of her matches.
