J&S Cup: Where are the power baseliners?

If we figure the Venus we saw last week at Charleston is the Venus we will see going forward, the only player who makes a living off baseline power here is Kuznetsova. And she's not Seles, or Davenport or Dokic, being SOLELY reliant on power from the baseline.

In past years, those players showed up at TIer II red clay events. Why the no show this year? Hantuchova is ranked #45 and she's seed #17! What gives?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Bovina and Chladkova give the ball a lusty blow.
