Whatever Happened to Women's Tennis?

Women's tennis coming to La Costa. But it's not the good old days of Chris and Martin.

Saturday they are going to toss a tennis ball up in the air and the will commence at .

Top player? No. 8 seed Marian Bartoli.

Top U.S. player? No. 38 seed Christina McHale.

Have you ever heard of either one of them? If you aren't a Women's Tennis Association junkie then I bet the answer is no. And I don't even know what to make of women's tennis. Yes, I realize the really "big names" just finished the fortnight at Wimbledon, but honestly when Chris and Martina retired they could have stopped serving dinner at the WTA Diner.

And if the Williams sisters hadn't come along when they did they could have shut down the restaurant. Guess I'll just have to check out a match or two and see what I am missing. The tournament runs through July 22.
