"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

I'm surprised Venus is playing here.

I mean, Wimbledon, then Fed Cup, then BOWC.

I expect her to then take a week off, then play in San Diego or Canada, then off to the Olympics.

I doubt she'll play both San Diego and Canada, it would probably be better if she play Canada, but Venus loves San Diego.

I'M GOING!! I'M GOING!!

If they give out more than one free pass, I hope it goes to Raquel Kops-Jones of Cal.

Since the tournament organizers are more than likely Stanford grads, you're probably right.....

Interesting that the draw is still strong even if it isn't exactly in the best place in the calendar.
That was true up until last year, when Venus entered the event, and Serena didn't, although she withdrew anyways.

Exclamation

Someone said previously that the second round of Fed Cupb between Austria and the US is going to be played in Austria. Since the tie is the weekend before Bank of the West, it is unlikely Venus would play in Fed Cup.

Even if they did give a main draw WC to Rocky, she would be behind Marissa and Laura Granville.
