    Me too. I'm skittish on Serena due to knee problems, no warm up, and the bad end of her GS run. That US Open match was just...no words. On the other hand...it is Serena.

    Of other choices...Sharapova has a possible arm injury and no match play; Kvitova - I so wish she would play up to her potential outside of Wimbledon; Halep...I'm pretty "meh" on her; Radwanska...I can enjoy her style but to win a GS? It would take a LOT of luck with the draw and other seeds flaming out. Muguruza? This year will be interesting but I can't pick her yet.

    Kvitova, Venus, and Kerber are all top 8 seeds, so it has to count for something. Your assumption is exactly what I'm talking about. If everyone were healthy I would put Azarenka in the 4th/5th range, but I think she could very well win the tournament without ever running into Serena, Sharapova, or Halep. I put her beating Halep in the SF and Radwanska in the final, and those are both iffy. I see Muguruza in the 4th round as her biggest hurdle. Svitolina in the 3rd is no slouch either.

    The whole thing seems impossible to predict. I wouldn't rule out an under the radar vet like Kuznetsova taking the whole thing.

    Venus skipped her post match presser. This isn't the first time she's done this.

    This drives me insane. I didn't know what it was called until now, so I can finally google it.

    This dance originated over the summer in Atlanta with rap group Migos, and it caught on when Future and producer Metro Boomin’ were seen dabbing.

    The dance is pretty simple; one leans in to their elbow like they’re sneezing. That’s it, literally. You’ve dabbed before.

    Now, it’s all over sports. Without further ado, here’s a brief history of the dab...

    So it was started by a rap group. Now it's really popular in the NFL.

    Hmm. I didn't have any words, but that's not a real word, so... I'll allow it. Also... why the eff is it called dabbing? Is it supposed to resemble furtively taking chewing tobacco?
