Womens Tennis: Is the fat lady singing?
We are at a sad turn of events. Serena/Venus/Kim/Justine are basically no shows at most tournaments. There is no Rivialry. The first 2 days of the french Open are sold out on the strength of a 47 year old past champion playing on one of the two days. The next 12 days tickets are going for a song. As Martina and Andre continue to reduce there playing schedule, the Game continues to fade. Without bankable stars, the game looks set for ruin. As Venus pulls out of another tournment and Serena plays part time, Justine is "Not well", Kim is injured, Monica is fading, Jenifer is playing less and less, Martina is retiring at the end of the year, Lindsay is tossing up retirement...where do we go?..Sevetlana and Karolina etc are great, but they are not Serena et al. There is major problems.
