Looks like Venus Williams was totally innocent in that crash that killed an old man.

She just made the final at Wimbledon. The crash doesn't seem to have hurt her game any.

Last 4 us open women are all americans. I love it. The American women have not been horrible, besides the Williams sisters. They also have done as little as the men, the last 10 years. Serena obviously isn't even one of them. They are all likable. Sloane Stephens is beautiful. Might be the best looking athlete there is.

I hope Serena can come back and win 2 more. I know it's unlikely.

I agree on both.

I'm picking Venus over Keys, so they will probably both lose the semis. It's going be a nice story no matter who wins.

I see Sloan Stephens won. I know nothing at all about her but it sure does appear the race barrier in tennis has been broken for good, at least on the girls' side.
