Sad News for us Brits

The invincible Anne Keothavong is out. She lost 6-3 6-2 to some unknown Belarussian ranked below her. Oh dear.

Um no shes won ITF's in britain, france and the USA.

Its shame Anne is better than this shes got a lot to defend soon so her ranking may drop a bit.

Its going to be interesting though with Mel and Katie on the way up we may have a three way battle for the british #1 spot and Sarah Borwell is right on their heals.

GOOD LUCK IN 2014 GB TENNIS GIRLS

Good you're taking it this way. That girl that beat Schiavone in the first round of Wimbledon this year (can't remember her name), is she doing anything of significance at the moment?

Mel South, she won a challenger event in China just before US Open, and she went out in the qualifying round for the US Open. Nothing else to note of her lately.

Were all those your past 'tips for success' at the bottom of your screen?

Never know, perhaps you're the kiss of death. No, that's unfair.

Some good news on the horizon. My son Chip and his family are visiting London later this year and being able “health wise”, I myself will also be making the trip.

South had a very fluky win over Schiavone and apart from a 25K win has done nothing since. She lost to Nadja Roma in straight sets last week which says it all

Borwell is already riding on the fact she had a great grass season.

O'Brien if she can get her nerves under control could rise up nicely and has a Top 100 game but it's very questionable if she will.

Keothavong is simply not good enough.

If we could have one player out of the top 20, who would you choose?

I go Franny Schiavone cause she lives in London and she's great!
