This and that

Lourdes Dominguez Lino has returned to the top 100. She defeated Sorana Cirstea in the final of the ITF tournament in Athens, and is now number 89 in the world. Before that win, she was number 114.

Venus and Serena Williams have withdrawn from the Tokyo tournament, with elbow and ankle injuries, respectively.

If Jelena Jankovic wins the Toray Pan Pacific Open, she will be number 1 in the world.

Grand Central Publishing will publish Serena Williams' "memoir" (at her age?) next year. So far, there is no mention of an "as told to" format. And as much as I despise the "as told to" format, the thought--especially with editing being more or less a joke for the past several years (what do editors do now?...they certainly do not edit)--of Williams writing a book is not an easy one. She is an interesting and talented athlete who simply should not put pen to paper.

A good read from Zoo Tennis--"Scattered Thoughts on the U.S. Open Junior Championships."

Since #1 is once again on the line, I'm pretty sure that JJ will find a way to lose this tournament. The tough draw will surely not help her :p

That really is a tough draw. On the other hand, they're dropping like flies.
