Jennifer Russell
Hey guys, what do we know about this chick?

HOUSTON - Rice women’s tennis volunteer assistant coach Jennifer Russell reached a career high this month, reaching 50th in the Women’s Tennis Association’s most current doubles ranking.

The ranking comes after Russell advanced to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the Italian Open with partner Maria Santangelo. With the number 50 worldwide ranking, Russell is sixth in the United States, behind Lisa Raymond, Meghan Shaughnessy, Martina Navratilova, Corina Morariu and Lindsay Davenport.

Next up for Russell and Santangelo is the DFS Classic at Birmingham, England, beginning June 6 followed by the Ordina Open in S-Hertogenbosh, Netherlands, starting June 13. The pair finish the month at the Championships at Wimbledon where they advanced to the round of 16 in 2004.

In addition to WTA tournament action, Russell is also a member of the St. Louis Aces of World Team Tennis. The Aces will be in town to play the Houston Wranglers on July 6 at the Westside Tennis Club. For more information, please contact Rice women’s tennis at 713-348-6035.

:lol: Even though, just because its a sports bra... If she's going to do that-she may as well take off the top too?

Okay, I haven't really had much chance to make any quality posts, since opening this thread!
I think Jennifer deserves that much, at least :p!

Anyway, as I said, she and Jim played mixed doubles at Wimbledon.. They managed to get on Court 3, on Thursday-unfortunately it was pretty late, so a bit dark, and starting to get very cold. Jim and Jennifer ran away with the first set 6-1, but for some reason the game suddenly turned right around, and they lost the next two sets 46 57. :eek:
I have a DVD of the match, and it is a shocker! So unexpected, I think Jim was pretty surprised too...
I hope they team up in Flushing Meadows, that'd be really cool :) Not sure how much chance there is of that happening, but we'll just wait and see, I guess..

I wonder why Jennifer switched from Prince rackets to Babolat-did they offer her a deal? Or does she buy her own?

:lol: Yeah... I guess it's only the top players that don't change their names, on marriage... That's where the confusion comes in!
