The Open: You're right, one more event to go. I was going to talk about it, but wanted to wait until the draws were official (tomorrow I believe). My parents have tickets for night of womens' finals, which I may glom onto. On the men's side, Roddick is really playing well. He's won his last two tune-ups, and made the finals in a couple more. OF course, winning the small "appearance fee" tournies isn't the greatest measure of the man. Roddick has to deal with the hype; something he's never excelled at. But, it's his surface, so I'd be surprised if he gets upset. On the women's, I understand Serena is not playing, and if not, then Venus must be smiling. Well, let's wait for the draws, because that will obviously make a difference.
