Re: Olympics, Beijing, CHN

Loves it!
Draws Raluca in R1.

I've been a giant killer this year so maybe another win over a Top 8 player. But Raluca beat me handily after winning the first set so I hope this time around it will be different.

Shahar... #8 She's just a distant memory.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Re: Olympics, Beijing, CHN

Draw edited to accomodate (WC) Venus Williams who has returned from injury. She takes Kirilenko's place in draw, meaning that Kirilenko and Radwanska now move into qualifying. New qualifying draw done.

Yes if you swap Dechy vs. Safarova for Serena vs. Mattek (assuming she qualifies)

Venus Returns In Beijing



Venus Williams was overwhelmed to hear that the tour director would give her a wild card into the Olympic games. She has vowed to make the most of it and to represent the US well in China.

"I'm so excited to be back on tour. Coming back during the Olypmic Games is just the an huge honor and I won't let my country down. I've been working with my coach on my serve. I feel it's the one thing that has been letting my down in matches and I have to do better in that area."

I wish everyone luck here at the games!!!

Re: Olympics, Beijing, CHN

vs JJ

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.
