Passing shots

The ESPN documentary, Renee, has already aired a couple of times, and will be shown again on Sunday. I was already familiar with Dr. Richards' story, and was surprised that she agreed to do the film, which is directed by Eric Drath. I wish more time had been devoted to Richards' coaching of Martina Navratilova, but a lot of things have to be cut when such a film is assembled. Those who are interested in Renee Richards are also advised to watch the biopic, Second Serve, starring Vanessa Redgrave.

A stress fracture in her back has ended Shahar Peer's 2011 season.

Martina Hingis will introduce the first-ever women's legends event at the 2012 Australian Open.

The DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts will be the site of the 2012 World Group II first round Fed Cup tie between the USA and Belarus.

Here are some photos of the China Open player party (via Beyond the Baseline).
