A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
2.Venus (she'll be number 3 between The French and the indoor-season)
3.Kim (I hope she can defend those indoor-tournaments )
This is hard. I don't know if Venus is 'on plan' or not. I guess I have to assume Venus won't go to Europe this fall, and won't play more than 15 events. Kim will go to Europe, and will play about 22. That said ...
Proud to be an American
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.
