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:
The Babylon project was our last best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, the year the great war came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259, the name of the place is Babylon 5.
