Also very happy for Trice! And great job to Alexis, she is one of the hardest workers I've ever seen!!!
I saw Grace hugging Ester Goldfeld and high-fiving the Duke coaches after her win yesterday so you never know.

Nice job Trice
She lost 1&1 to Connie like two weeks ago I agree her results have definitely been promising, but consistent...not so much.

Put quite the beatdown on Allie tough. US top juniors getting killed by Capra and Min.

Victoria Azarenka Venus Williams

Cecil's job as an assistant coach doesn't play into this arrangement?

That's what I was under the impression that arrangement was about.

And good point about the loss to Hsu... I'm just saying that if you look at her pre US Open pro results and then look at her post US Open pro results, it is a night and day difference. It shows in the pro ranking also. Never thought she would be in a position to enter Wimbledon quallies!

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

You're right, I agree. Just laughed a little because last week I was lamenting her consistency (e.g. the loss to Connie) otherwise she could have been in the hunt for the FOWC.

Yay, Heidi - she took the first set 6 - 3!

I can't find live scoring on Pelletier vs King.
