A few more details on the injury that's keeping the Hammer of Thor grounded for these two weeks. From her site, David Taylor said she was diagnosed with a "stress reaction in her distal humerus", which basically sounds like she had a bad reaction to an unfunny joke. Considering that our shared love of the comedic stylings of Anchorman, I can totally sympathize. I hate when people try to be funny and aren't. I would have a stress reaction, too. And if the joke fail were bad enough, I might have to call in sick to work for two weeks.
So I'm with you, Sam. I'm so with you.
Hopefully she'll be 100% for New Haven, where she's just been granted a wildcard. Ana and Sam at New Haven? Together? Don't think I haven't thought about it, folks.
In the meantime, enjoy this really really boring video of Sam regripping her racquets. It's only slightly more interesting than the one of her making coffee and driving to work, if only for her revelation that she only plays with one side of the racquet, which is a completely fascinating and confuzzling notion to Victoria and I.
