dokic

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.

See how things can change in a moment. Who would think at the
US Open Kim and Justine will seed above Venus Wiliams in 2003.
The rankings suck. Quantity over quality.

It is your country, Russia with seven seeded players and USA with
seven seeded players.
Who cares if they have more seeded players than USA but the
question is who will be winning the big tournament.
