The French Open begins next week, hurrah!

The bad news, according to
"Agassi can concentrate on singles because he won't be playing mixed doubles with his wife, Steffi Graf. Her management company said Thursday she's pregnant with the couple's second child." Remember, Steffi promised to play mixed doubles at Roland-Garros with her husband if he won the Australian, which he did. Alas.

But the good news, the news most tennis fans wanted to hear:
"Serena and Venus Williams were placed on opposite sides of the field in the French Open draw Friday, meaning they could meet in their fifth straight Grand Slam final." For the first time in a year, this was in doubt, as Venus has slipped to #3 in the world, behind second-ranked Kim Clijsters. I know I'm delighted by this news.

Greg Garber, BTW, has an excellent piece on how US-France tensions could affect the 2003 French Open. Highly recommend.

Are you ready for some tennis?
