The WTA kittycats put their claws away for a moment to hail the unifying power of Ai Sugiyama.
It looked like a heartwarming ceremony and I love the eclectic group of players who seemed to feel genuine sadness to see her go.
But we all know there's one player in particular who's going to have a hard time with this.
And I don't mean Banana Shorts there on the right.
Too bad she was forced to retire from her first round match against Nads with an ab injury. But she's still in doubles with Dani, which is totally rad.
Some video of the ceremony and her match with Dani.
