    Whoa. 1999 is calling and guess who’s answering? Vaidisova, Lucic-Baroni… Can Jennifer Capriati be far behind? Although what that says about women’s tennis vs. men’s tennis is a great topic for debate. Other than… Bjorg (?), I don’t remember any male players coming back after multiple years off the tour. I’d love to see you guys write something about that!
