Today, Maria beat Venus Williams 6-4 6-3 in an exhibition in Thailand - she has now beaten both Williams sisters two times each in the last six months! :D

I'm a cautiously optimistic person at the best of times, but I can honestly say that I expected this victory. Maria's star is in the ascendancy now, and I think she has a great chance of winning the Australian Open.

Maria donated $10,000 to Thailand's tsunami relief-fund. I think it's good that she made such a public show of generosity - not because it's an easy way for such a rich person to boost her own image, but because it might encourage others to follow her example.
