Passing shots

The WTA site, in recognition of International Women's Day, has posted a gallery of black and white photos of former tennis stars. The first one is of great interest because it is a portrait of Suzanne Lenglen, and we are so accustomed to seeing her in action shots. Also, be sure to check out Frankie Durr and Topspin.

Venus Williams recently joined the 311 cruise and added to her karaoke routine.

Sony has purchased Hawk-Eye. (Good luck to the ITF if they ever need to get a part replaced.)

You can get to know Zhang Shaui.

En route to Indian Wells, Caroline Wozniacki visited Serena Williams at Williams' house, and reports that the former number 1 is in good spirits as she recuperates from illness and surgery.

Main draw play begins tomorrow in Indian Wells. Defending champion Jelena Jankovic is in the same quarter as Petra Kvitova, Marion Bartoli and Kim Clijsters. Andrea Petkovic and Jarmila Groth are in that quarter, too.

One of the great Goolagong shots. And I gotta love Topspin!
