Alright, I'm starting the picture of the day club. Each day, (around this time I guess), I will post what I think to be the best picture of the previous day in women's tennis (no Getty images eligible of course ;)). I won't favor any player. If there are no truly stand-out great pictures of the day, I will just choose the funniest one (see my thread called "funniest picture ever" for what I think of as funny). So without further ado....the first picture in the Picture of the Day Club....

JANUARY 9th:

Eye of the Tiger: Lindsay Davenport is the first top 10 player to win a match this year, staring the year off with a bang. She wins 6-3 6-4 over Nathalie Dechy.

I really feel for Vera sometimes - I really want her to win a Grand Slam or a Tier I tournament so she can remember that in times of losing. Its a shame she lost today as a win would have meant she would have re-entered the Top10.

Good luck for Melbourne VERA!
