Clijsters and Henin and Serena.

Not that that's what you'd ever describe any of them as such but Kim was phenomenal.

Lindsay Davenport

Elena Bovina | Anastasia Myskina | Flavia Pennetta
Fernando Verdasco | Tommy Haas


Q. Give us an update on the kid.
A. Are you serious?

Re: Top 5 retrievers of all time?

Thought about her but I don't think she was really a retriever. She was only when she played Graf and Seles and was guite agressive when she played other players...

Myskina as a counterpuncher retrieves so well.

Definitely Arantxia-Sanchez Vicario. She was the penultimate retriever... She had a defensive lob that made you gasp...

Venus. Though there are a lot more dimensions to her game. But when it comes to chasing down shots, nobody does it better.

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.
