Oh Chak
But, I guess this week was a step in the right direction..I hope.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

What a lady! And what a breakthrough tournament, congratulations Alison!

And that's a shame for Chak but encouraging signs.

FTH. Seriously. Don't knock her until you've seen her. She has a great game for grass, and she couldn't be a nicer, more sporting girl.

Keep it going Alison! Yanina will be tough, but it will be interesting to see what you do against her!

Anna led 64 32 with a break and then all but capitualated, especially in the third set.
another disappointing loss to add to the countless she already has.......

Anna This week means nothing to me. She defeated no one. Petkovic has never won on grass in her life, so great job Anna on getting as far as you did with a good draw.

Thrilled for Alison though! Amazing week for you! Keep going!!

Kudos to Riske... she seemed to serve excellently, but Anna really should have won this. Ah well... disappointing, but this week is an improvement.

Anna you could have made it but then such a melt down
at least it was better than the last weeks

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.
