injuries are tragic, indeed

It doesn't really affect Nicole either. She was under an age-restriction at this time last year so she knows about playing few tournaments and only getting credit for those she plays. Now it's 16 tournaments instead of 15.
All it's doing is probably making Nicole consider if she ever wants to play Miami.
She's going to be around for a decade. Does Larry Scott really know what he's doing with this policy?
He's hurting his core players especially for American tournaments.
With no p[layers likely to be a big deal in America in the next 4-5 years, you need players with an "All-American look" to still have some people interested in the game. Players like Vaidisova, Ivanovic, Golovon, Mirza, and Kirilenko.
You don't want to make them feel like they're not wanted.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

at the time of the policy change, his core players were Venus, Serena, Sharapova, Davenport, Henin-Hardenne, Mauresmo and Clijsters. Except for Davenport, they all usually play Miami. He couldn't possibly Serena and Henin-Hardenne would be injured, and he HAD to assume Davenport would be injured. She told the WTA in writing she wasn't playing 17 tournaments this year. And tis is a tournament she usually doesn't play.

I'd love to know your definition of an 'All-American look', since NONE of those players have looks that have been big generators of American TV ratings. (Mirza does generate big TV ratings, but not in the USA.)

However, that really isn't relevant. When Chris Evert retired, women's TV ratings went into the tank, and stayed there until the Williams sisters came along. There were plenty of girls with whatever kind of look you wanna call, 'All-American'. Black, white, blonde, brunette, tall, short, skinny, round. There ws only one player between Evert and Venus Williams who really caused an uptick in tennis TV viewership. Monica Seles. Who really isn't 'classically' beautiful in any way.

I just don't think a bunch of barbie dolls could going generate interest in tennis. People have movie stars and singers for that.

Proud to be an American
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.
