If we figure the Venus we saw last week at Charleston is the Venus we will see going forward, the only player who makes a living off baseline power here is Kuznetsova. And she's not Seles, or Davenport or Dokic, being SOLELY reliant on power from the baseline.

In past years, those players showed up at TIer II red clay events. Why the no show this year? Hantuchova is ranked #45 and she's seed #17! What gives?

Bovina and Chladkova give the ball a lusty blow. ;)
