Re: Venus vs Hingis US Open 2000 Highlights
What's striking to me about that match is how far Hingis was playing inside the baseline. Compared to the post-2000 tactic virtually everyone used of keeping Hingis pinned behind the baseline, and running her from side to side. I think she's every bit as good a tennis player today, but people know how to play her now. And of course, there are even more power players than there were in 2000.

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.
