1) Who's eligible?
2) Who's willing?
3) How are things in Iraq?
VENUS may decide not to go, depending on how she assesses things post-Wimbledon. Chanda's health is always an issue. Lindsay just got married. If her husband is truly concerned, what will she do? Is Jenn eligible? I expect Nav and Lisa will agree no matter what. But who the other for are has a lot of varaibles to it.
Four out of Venus, Serena, Chanda, Lindsay, Jenn, Meghann. One of which is a doubles team. Who's to say four of them wat to risk it. Ashley Harkelroad, Amy Frazier or Laura Granville may wind up going. The year of all years, how can you tell?
One car bomb in a food delivery truck could kill half the top twenty. This isn't a difficult security problem, it's an IMPOSSIBLE security problem.
I think that's bigger deal than the criteria for picking the team.

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.
