Passing shots

The Online Courses site is featuring a handy basic guide to understanding what Title IX is and isn't, and how Title IX applies to athletes. It still amazes me how those who least understand Title IX talk the most about it, so convinced are they that the law has "destroyed" sports. And there are some schools that go to great lengths to defy the law.

Sabine Lisicki leads in service speed this season. She hit a 125 mph serve in Stanford.

Venus Williams has a viral illness and had to withdraw from Toronto. Williams was replaced in the draw by Zhang Shuai, and the extra spot in the draw was given to Lourdes Dominguez Lino.

Coach David Taylor talks about Sam Stosur's slide out of the top 10 (story via On the Baseline).

Andrea Petkovic has entered the top 10, so in her honor:

Plenty of easy lobs for Caro. I hope she breaks through (funny thing to say about a #1) and wins a major soon.
