They were supposed to be there.

Maybe they didn't want to be bothered.

Venus and Serena maintain a home in Florida where they have lived for many many years. Serena also maintains a very nice condominum in Los Angeles. They were available earlier this week for a fashion show featuring fashions from Serena's line of clothing wear.

they should have stayed few more days

it make sense to not have Steffi Arantxa Monica etc b/c they are far from LA but Serena and Venus were in town early week!

Neither was Steffi Graf, but I wasn't expecting her to be there because she just gave birth a few weeks ago.

That's no excuse - she could have left Andre babysitting.

Actually, on second thoughts, I understand her not coming .

I thought they would be there too, but maybe they already left.

Anybody care to provide details for those of us who can't watch?

What did this ceremony/parade look like? Were the players all dressed up or just in normal clothes? I imagine Justine didn't have too much time to get ready and Kim is playing right after this ceremony I believe!
