Passing shots

Martina Navratilova made her debut on Dancing With the Stars tonight, with Chris Evert in the audience to cheer her on. People on the show kept telling her--I mean, really kept telling her--how beautiful she looked. We got tthe message, ABC. But she didn't look beautiful. When she isn't on an ABC reality show--that's when she looks beautiful. Whoever took Martina, could you please give her back?

Jimmy Connors has withdrawn from 40 Love: A Night of Empowerment Celebrating 40 Years of the Family Circle Cup, a special evening presented by Dove. Connors has a hip injury and will have to have surgery. Replacing him in the event will be John McEnroe.

Speaking of the Family Circle Cup, Elle Brewer won this year's College of Charleston $5,000 scholoarship. You can read all about Elle here.

Venus Williams and Kimiko Date-Krumm will meet again--this time in the first round of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. Their second round match at Wimbledon last year was one of the best of the tournament. And--just to make it more interesting--the winner of the Miami match gets Petra Kvitova in the second round.

Alisa Kleybanova will be in Miami. She says thank you.
