    Aaah Linz, I know how you feel about talking to Venus. I met her in Cayman a few years ago when she was promoting her book (Come to Win) and I absolutely treasure that moment. She was engaging, funny, articulate and so humble. I recalled writing to L. Jon about her and just telling him what a great moment that was for me. She has been my favourite player for years and there have been many players who have made my shite list just because they beat Venus. I will never root for them again. On some days that even includes Serena, especially that USO 2008 match. Man 🙁

    I love reading your writing. You just take me straight to Charleston. You have such a great voice.

    Lovely “en vrac” summary Lindsay…

    You’re doing a wonderful job even though you still can’t figure out how to “clone” yourself:)))

    You guys I’m so jealous of all of you,surrounded by all these tennis players,up close and personal! AWESOMENESS!!!

    I’d walk with my head if I ever get that close to Serebaby,woot!

    This was a very fun read. I loved reading your article about Vania, too.

    I enjoyed your quick takes on all the players, and I’m especially excited to read your interview with Vicki Duval. I was sad to hear that Sloane has had it so rough. I was so charmed by her during the AO & I was so hoping she would use it as a launching pad. But I know that sometimes surprise success (ie success that comes unexpectedly, when you maybe assumed it was years away instead of months, weeks, or even moments) is the most difficult to deal with.

    I hope she finds her way through.

    SO happy you got to talk to Venus. I don’t understand how you survived that moment. How exciting!

    This is great reading! Surprised about what S Williams still has to do but understand completely as it dealt with her life. Can not wait until the interview with Duval as my relative son likes SpongeBob(wonder if that includes his partner, Patrick the starfish). Not surprised at Stephens at all due to her struggles. Wonder if her win and her loss to Azarenka and the MTO involved finally got to her. I read that you had fun with C Note and Oohsalmon so I can imagine what the conservations were about.

    Great stuff, Lindsay! I enjoyed the all access hour video, but your insights and impressions seem much more genuine than the largely contrived Q and A on the video.
