This and that...

Carol Caldwell Graebner has died. Caldwell Graebner was a top 10 player during the 1960s, and she helped Billie Jean King establish Fed Cup. Graebner and Nancy Richey comprised the world number 1 doubles team in 1965 and 1966. Graebner, who was 65, died of cancer.

Both Coco Vandeweghe and junior world number 1 Arantxa Rus have withdrawn from the Orange Bowl, which should open up some real opportunities for other competitors.

Steffi Graf has signed a deal with Longine; her husband, Andre Agassi, already has one. Thanks for this to Bob Larson's Tennis News, but it should be noted: Steffi Graf is not a man, though she is identified as one.
