All eyes will be on Venus Williams this week as she returns to competitive tennis after her shock withdrawal from the 2011 US Open citing complications from Sjogren’s disease. I wish her all the best as she aims to secure eligibility for the 2012 Olympics. I’ll be cheering the US team on and hope this team can get the country back into the World Group. Leading the charge from Belarus will be the new #1 Victoria Azarenka who lived up to the hype and demolished Maria Sharapova last week to win her first major. Looking forward to the matchup against the sisters and the new #1.
