sunday survey: serena’s return

April 4, 2010

Serena Williams hasn’t played a competitive tennis match since winning the Australian Open in January – two whole months. The Queen of Comebacks, Serena said this week that she will not commit to a date of return to the WTA as she nurses injuries. Above, she plays some dirt ball with kids during a trip to Africa last month.

When do you think Serena will return? In time for the French? Wimbledon? Ever?! Can she pull a Clijsters and win a Slam again with little prep? Or is Serena entering the stage of her career where she has to be a little more careful about thinking she can strut in and win? Tell us what you think in the comments section.

toasting kim

April 4, 2010

Kim Clijsters made quick work of Venus Williams yesterday in the final of the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne. The 2009 U.S. Open champion added her first tournament win of 2010 on U.S. soil. The last time Clijsters beat both Justine Henin and Venus Williams in the same tournament was at the Season Ending Championships in 2002, almost eight years ago!

P.S. Who’s that cute guy on Kim’s left?! She calls him “Wim” in the caption (or is he Sam?!). C’mon folks, we know you know…
