..for those who miss Serena,Venus,Monica and Hingis..

The tour is lacking without them imho and I wish they would all come back asap.

When one of these 4 are gone something is just missing..

I definitely agree. But absence does make the heart grow fonder and tends to make all fans appreciate them. I have had an awesome 4years of watching both Sisters win slams and dominate. I was getting a bit spoiled if I say so myself. Started expecting my gals to win every tourney (which they almost did )

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

That is so true, Dawn. These 4 great players and different personalities are greatly missed. I think the Williams sisters could be back next year. And hopefully Monica will return, too. But I don't think Martina will return to the WTA Tour because she has serious injury problems with her ankles and she appears to happy away from tennis.

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

I think a full tour with all these players would be great. The GS and top tourneys would be packed with talent, and make tennis more intersting for me instead of the williams or belgians winning all the big titles.

The next big thing: Voegele

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

I really miss Monica - I cant wait until next year to see her back on the courts again. For me, this year has been miserible without her.

Yeh, full of choking, injuries and slumps. French Open was good but could have been better. AO was cool too, Wimbledon was alright and the USO totally sucked

The tour does miss them, but they need a healthy Monica who would not have to retire from half of the tournaments and a fit Martina who would be a threat to the very best again. Somehow I don't see that happening...
