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.

The withdrawals have certainly thrown the competition wide open for those bottom seeds who can sniff progress. If Serena does pull out then Davenport simply has it all to lose, in my opinion.

Congratulations, you have some good players from your country. How do you think Talaja will do against Daniela today?

I was expecting the withdrawals to help Sprem. BUt the loss to Schnyder today makes me wonder.

You gonna update to include Capper's withdrawal? Alicia is now a top-10 seed!

Not til she's officially out. There's nothing on the tournament website, or the wta website. The only source (so far) indicating she might pull out is tennisreporters (see article here). And that article only says, in toto "Two-time champion Jennifer Capriati will pull out of the Australian Open with a sore shoulder".

She's pretty obviously going to play if she can without making the shoulder worse. Otherwise, she'd have withdrawn already.

I still thinks theres a good chance Serena will play. They showed her on the news hitting up on Rod Laver, she looked ok.

Don't hold your breathe.

She's there and practicing
with Venus in Vodafone Arena.

That's a bet I wouldn't make!

No problem. Post a link to quote from Serena or Jenn saying they aren't playing, or from the OZ site saying either of them aren't playing, or from the WTA website saying they aren't playing. Who am I to decide for them?
