That's ridiculous ! Why not put andy and Lisa on the cover. THEY ARE THE DEFENDING CHAMPIONS! Plus, Anna has always withdrawn from Memphis each time she has been scheduled to play.

hmm, I wonder will they be excited about Raymond if Anna loses first round and gets booed off the court as she has been in previous tournaments?

very intelligent post

and by the way, no disrespect to lisa, but even if that does happen (which it wont), people probably wont be too excited about lisa raymond being the new star attraction...

which people are you talking about?? The tennis fans who pay a couple of hundred dollars to go to the entire tournament or the panting boys who buy one day sessions to see Anna lose?

Also, if you think Lisa Raymond wasn't in all the local papers and on the local television after she won you are mistaken. So I highly doubt that the tennis fans in that community have not heard of Lisa Raymond.

to see anna lose? lol. she wins matches, just not tournaments...for now at least...

im sure when lisa won she was in all the newspapers...so what? im talking casual tennis fans...my dad likes tennis but he isnt a huge fan. lots of people are like that. and im sure all of them havent heard of lisa raymond. she is not a household name...anna is a better player than lisa, and more people have heard of her and more people want to see her (panting teenage boys and tennis fans in general)...

I have no idea why they are not promoting Chanda at all.

Chanda is the highest-ranked player coming; she is very likely to still be playing in the tournament on the final day; and she lives in the next-door state of Louisiana. Plus, she is gorgeous.

It is short-sighted for them to ignore her totally in the tournament web site and promos. But, what else is new.

Win the title, Chanda! Winning is the best answer to these bozos who ignore you!

I think Anna has been entered for a long time, Chanda entered just when the commitment lists came out. Maybe that's why.

Anyway good luck to Anna, Chanda, and Lisa at Memphis!

Kournikova is a better tennis player than Lisa Raymond? How do you figure cause Anna has more "talent" whatever that means?


Anna has been ranked as high as 8 , Lisa has been ranked as high as 15.

Anna has two Doubles grand slams and Lisa has 3 Double and 3 Mixed-Double.

Anna has zero singles titles, Lisa has 3.

Anna has been ranked #1 in doubles and Lisa has been ranked #1 in doubles.

Anna has been a finalist in the singles competition 4 times without winning, Lisa has been a finalist 7 times without winning.

Anna has 16 doubles titles, Lisa has 36.

Anna has zero Mixed Doubles Titles, Lisa has 3.

So please explain to me what measuring criteria that you are using to make a statement like Kournikova is a better tennis player than Lisa Raymond?

more people have definitely heard of Anna but everyone who has attended the tournament last year knows who Lisa Raymond is, anyone who followed the tournament in the local papers know who Lisa Raymond is. Maybe she doesn't inspire them to spend money or maybe the tournament is enough inspiration to spend the money. However, I seriously doubt any Anna(only) fan would invest money in anything other than a R1 session ticket.

To me its very disrespectful to all the players but especially Raymond who is defending champ that they wouldn't even give her a small acknowledgement on their promos! That is pure Shiite!

Also, I wish people would credit Anna for her deeds not their wishfull/hopefull thinking. Does she have the talent to be <insert accolade>, maybe, has she earned such accolade based on her tennis accomplishments recently, No. People throw that word talent around so frequently its starting to lose all meaning.

Anna usually loses so fast and so quick that this photo gives Anna fans a chance to watch Anna's **game** during the tournament.
