It's official. On the injured heels of Serena's announcement that she's not going to play the Open due to her foot injury, DelPo has made it official: There will be no defense of the title.
Disappointing but not shocking news. I actually find Serena's announcement more nuclear than DelPo's sparkler firecracker. But at least it's official and we can all move on grieving the best way we know how. Mine involves hard liquor and cookies.
With Serena's withdrawal, Caro will be the top seed in New York. Hee! With DelPo's non-defense, he'll drop out of the top 30. Boo!
