Mexicans and Puerto Ricans don't have any intense dislike for each other but,with guys,sometimes the Latino male ego gets in the way a little bit.....I reckon that the women usually get along okay....Anyway,there's not gonna be any Mexican Hingis anytime soon,so I'll support Puig since she's the closest thing to Mexican that we're gonna get in the WTA Top 100 for a while.We'll see how she does in these later rounds in Portugal
I don't know if you saw it but there was an interview recently with Galvadon at the Wta's website:
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, ten years after the Earth/Minbari war. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5. (Jeffrey Sinclair: Babylon 5: Season 1: Signs and Portents)
