Indian Wells - How will the announce team handle it?
No Venus or Serena this year at IW. No surprise. How will the announcers handle it?
a) Not mention either of them or their absence
b) Mention them, but NOT why they aren't there
c) Bring up the IW 2001 semis and finals ONCE, and say 'race has nothing to do with it'
d) Talk about it off and on for two weeks, and say 'race had nothing to do with it'
e) actually mention race as a possible factor in the crowd reaction
I'm NOT asking what YOU believe.
I'm NOT asking you what YOU think the announcers SHOULD do.
I'm asking for a prediction. What do you think the announcers WILL do? How will they (if at all) comment on the absence of the Williams sisters.
I'm interested in your ability to foresee the future, not your opinion on a tennis crowd from 2 years ago

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.
