Will the upcoming war enable Clijsters or other non Americans to get a GS title?
Officially VENUS WILLIAMS did not go to Dubaui because of a schedule issue, but in reality, a war in the Middle East seemed quite emminent and that was probably the reason for the cancellation at her parents request. I VENUS will not go in that region, then it is most certain that SERENA will not travel in that are as well.
If Cowboy Georgie initiates the war in late March or early April, then reprisals may occur on U.S. soil and possibly British and French ground as well.
If these actions occur then most, if not all, of the U.S. players will not travel overseas and participate in tour events during that period, possibly leaving Roland Garros and Wimbledon without any American players.
This situation could enable Clijsters and other Euro players the best opportunity that they may have in several to win these events.
However, if Kim wonder under these circumstances an asterisk could be placed by her name or the name of another winner for winning under special conditions.
Let us hope and pray that this situation does not occur and not just for the minor issue of a few tennis tournaments.
