Re: Billie Jean King Cup - Draw

As far as exhibitions go, this one does seem rather pointless.

It's pretty stupid how Safina made two GS finals last year and didn't get an invite. Then again, BJK adores the sisters.

French Open 2012, 2014
Wimbledon 2004

Re: Billie Jean King Cup - Draw

Nice pay check for the four players and it brings tennis back to the Garden. Plus doesn't this balance off the money Serena and Venus are fined for missing Indian Wells?

They don't actually pay those fines, it gets reduced from their year end bonus that they receive from WTA.
