Ever since the Cincinnati tournament was announced earlier this year, this has been the one I've been waiting for.
I sat through all the Slams, Tier I's, Tier II's... knowing Lena had no chance of winning.
But, for Cincinnati... that all changes.
Call me crazy for being so excited about a pathetic lower tier tournament... I am. This is where careers are made. Tier III tournaments are where a star was born in Maria Sharapova. Tier III tournaments are where we all enjoyed so much success with Lena in 2002.
