Omigod the williams sisters are gone one year and...

The opening ceremony goes to crap? Where's Diana Ross? Where's Queen Latifa? We get some poor old broadway musical with a whinny voice and rejects from flash dance gyrating on a big red circle? UGH.

It is definetely a little hard to watch and listen too. This is not inspirational. I guess Pete sampras likes this type of music

Why couldn't petey boy just retire and disappear like his off court life? i mean he was never a media whore so why does he need this big send off? Give him a freaking gold rolex and pat his ass out the door already with that no talent wife of his who has the personality of stale toast. I hope for his poor kids sake that personality skips a generation.

True, but a song like the national anthem is good but why sing some broadway tune that nobody knows? i dont get it. does usa own the show on broadway? next are we going to get cameos by usa network stars like that old 80s molly ringwald guy whats his name? Gimme a break!

Sing the freaking national anthem, but the dancing, and play the goddang tennis already.

what are you so contemptuous of Sampras, a true champion and the greatest player ever arguably. is it because he has done more than venus and serena combined???

I really respect Sampras, but I think Steffi retired with way more tact. He should have done the same thing she did.

give sampras a break. he has achieved a great deal in his career.

and besides, not everybody thinks diana ross and queen latifah are "great".

seriously, i wish the williams are here to play too to make this grand slam a contest of the best of the best. but they're not here. live with it and stop slagging it for everything and anything trivial. if you cant stand watching a gs tournament without your faves, there are other things to do. ride a bicycle or something.

foo!

Yay. Kim is on now!

I remember that Amber Lui from the NCAA Championship match -- a solid college player.
