Seriously, did JJ spend her off-time paying off all her competitors? Ana decides not to defend LA, Maria doesn't bother playing a tournament that's taking place right down the street from her house, and Venus, Serena, and Kuzzie all withdraw. An odd turn of events, don't you think?
So #1 is there for the taking for the #2 Serb. Can she sack up and take it? We'll know soon.
