Wowsa...I'm not a fan of either Williams sister, but think the fact that they are doing so much charity stuff recently is highly commendable! Too bad the auction wasn't allowed to run for longer...but here is to hoping that this showing of good will continues and spreads amongst the WTA ladies...and what an awesome opportunity for whomever wins this bidding contest!
