BIRMINGHAM


http://www.mtgfoundation.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/birmingham-mortgage-24.jpg


Well the clay season is finished, and we now move on to the British grass season, which is a short yet highly anticipated 3 weeks of tennis. Seles triumphed in Paris to claim her debut Slam title. The transition from clay to grass is never easy, so this week will be very interesting, and could give a good indication of who to look for at Wimbledon in 2 weeks time.

It's not really qualifyin I just call it that rather than doing a R64 draw with mostly byes. The bottom 6 always play in "qualifying". Look at your points and you will se an obvious flaw! :p

Congrats to Venus who puts her dismal performance from Paris behind her by claiming her 4th title of the season. She was made to work hard in the first set, saving 2 set points in the tiebreak, before running away with it in the second set. Peer's resurgence continues nicely this season as she pushes for a return to the Top 10.

Congrats Venus.
I wonder if it's just a matter of time before Hantuchova retires....
I'm hoping she might at least attempt to regain #1, rather than retire as most often do.
