"There are still some really great players left," Davenport said. "Unfortunately, it's always going to be known as the one that the Williams didn't play.''


Lindsay dares to say publicly what's the players have been whispering privately.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Yes it is unfortunate, but soon no one will remember appart from those who are psychologically imbalanced. The player who wins will go down in history and that's all that matters.

Martina Hingis

2006 Australian Open Mixed Doubles Champion

209 weeks at No.1

40 singles titles incl. 5 GS, 2 WTA Champs
36 doubles titles incl. 10 GS, 2 WTA Champs
1 GS mixed doubles title

MartinaI - I see where you are coming from, and part of it is true. However, I can just see whenever the player who won this years Us Open is mentioned, is followed by 'but the two most dominating women were not there.' But come on, we all know what the prize money is, and I'm sure the winner won't care too much .
I think if Kim wins her first Slam here, she would have won it with two of the other players out... while Justine, Linds, and Jen have already one at least one, therefore there wouldn't be a big deal if they one another without the Williams' in, as all three have one a major in where they beat one Williams.
