Re: Does Anybody Think Maria Kirilenko has a chance?
I want two votes. Yes, she has a chance. Venus has only played seven matches since Wimbledon. But Kirilenko isn't as good as Shahar Peer, and Venus bushwhacked Peer at Memphis. Fedak has a better chance, frankly. She's the one who get a chance to play Venus with rust still in her game. Kirilenko will (probably) face a Venus with a match under her belt.
Sometimes, the ranking system does tell us something. Kirilenko has played 26 tournaments in the twelve months. Venus has played six. Yet Venus is ranked #39, and Kirlenko #34.

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.
