    Let be the first to say (but surely not think) that I'll be surprised if that actually occurs

    My question is, when will Serena withdraw?

    There was a quote from her on the BBC the other day saying she has great memories there and can’t wait to play. I think playing a doubles against Roger would be the perfect start next season to get the fans back on her side and she’d be a fool not to take the opportunity

    Well of course she's going to say that now! Too early to admit to withdrawls yet. I also don't think she cares at all about having "fans on her side."

    Is UK in the field because this is an ITF (slams) event? Or do they generate ticket sales in the Commonwealth?
