Weekend Tennis Roundup

The Belgian team ...


Even after sleeping on it for a week, the year-end Top 10 still isn't sitting well with me. (Kudos to Juan Martin del Potro for still NOT cracking it even with half the elite players sidelined!)

And Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss spent the night with The Boss ...
