Didn't think Sam's shades were doing her much good - but she has just broken again!

Never mind Bally - roll on Wimby and she does move up about 10 in the rankings with these points

I didn't used to be - but think the standard of womens tennis is really improving. Clisters, Henin even Stosur. And I think it's good that the Williams no longer have absolute domination

I really enjoy watching Clijsters and Henin, also.  I think it was the Williams that put me off, tbh.  There's just nothing graceful about either of them.  That might sound harsh, but there you go.

^saw them both a couple of years ago at Roland Garros - and  realised that you don't get the huge size of Serena's frame and power until you see them in the flesh. Too, too manly for me i'm afraid

Yup.  Just a pair of powerhouses.  Nothing entertaining about that.
