It's the JP Morgan Chase. Serena won the title in 99 and 00, and was the runner up in 04.

Venus had to retire in the semis of 04.

No word on doubles. I think they should both try to play singles before we get ahead of ourselves

Even though Venus won't be at Stanford, I still may go to see her 17-year-old Czech clone, Nicole Vaidisova.

I hope they play dubs! Nice practice for Fed Cup (if it comes after)

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Woohoo! Well this is good for me, since I go to this tournament. This will be the second time that both sisters played in Carson (last time was 2004).

Weird. But, I guess the ranking points are better.

Let them eat cake.
