Chanda d Amelie 6-0 6-2. She's temporary #9, at least til Dokic wins (Did I write that?)
Leena - You're right. Venus' ranking matters just as much as Monica's. My point was really that SerenaSlam was excessively worried about it. Venus isn't scheduling like she's worried about holding her ranking. If she's going to only play 13 or 14 tournaments a year, I have to conclude she intends to defend her ranking by quality not quantity. So why worry about it.
That 'wannabe-elite' remark referred to results, not ability. Seles, Schnyder and Maleeva all have proven to have top ten ability in the past. Shaughnessy was close, and Daniilidou and Bovina are inevitable top tenners, barring injury. But that whole group is several hundred points back of the top eleven.

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.
