Re: Stacey Allaster reveals the player's wo will take women's tennis to the next leve
Marketing-wise, Serena-Li is a great final. But after these two fade, which is inevitable in the next five years, there's Sharapova, if her game returns from this round of shoulder problems (and who by then will also be on the 'wrong side' of 30, and who?
I love Azarenka's fight, And Errani, but the best player in her mid-20s from a big population country is Kerber. I'm just not feeling that. I think athletically, and in terms of game-play, the WTA is going to see real improvement over the next five-ten years. But star-power? Stephens, Bouchard, Halep? I'm just not feelin' it.

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.
