I don't know about this year. I remember hearing about it last year because Bovina beat her idol Venus in three sets. Venus was the only American to lose.

Venus LOL!!!

I heard that event has been cacelled and won't be back.

There was apparently an issue because the charities never got their money either. Safe to say, it's gone and ain't coming back. It's hardly a surprise though - the supposed Trilogy of tennis, fashion and music never materialised. The music side of things never took place, so they didn't manage to organise it even it the first year.

All of which means Jennifer has managed to kill off not only the Wightman Cup (back in 1989, I think) but now this. Bless her...

they should have done USA vs the World, but it probably would have been European players representing the world anyways...

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Hey RYNJ, u spelt Myskina wrong in your signature!!

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

I was at it last year and It was great - They apparently ran into massive debts this year so its been cacelled was a great concept though just like the rider cup - Bovina played an amazing match against Venus she was almost unstoppable!

Tennis / Music / Film

Oh yeah. I taped that Venus vs. Bovina match.

It was a good concept.
USA:...............................Europe:
Capriati............................Hantuchova
Davenport.........................Bovina
Seles...............................Majoli
Serena.............................Schett
Venus..............................(can't remember)

The doubles were the most entertaining. I liked the pairing of Lindsay and Monica.

that it won't be back.

Since September 2002:
33 singles titles
33 doubles titles
7 mixed doubles titles
7 Fed Cup titles

Debut record: 14 out of 24
Retired: Oct. 23, 2006
