Miami Open Thread

The draws for the Sony Ericsson Open are out. You can see the ATP draw here and the WTA draw here.

Neither draw seems all that balanced to my eyes, but particularly the WTA draw where the third quarter is loaded, loaded, loaded.

I was going to attend the second week of the event this year to cover it live, but my mother became ill and I had to spend the week in Milwaukee the week before last, so I cannot attend Miami after all. She's doing much better, but I need to stay in Maine and catch up on planting, planting, planting. Spring has arrived early, and I'm already a bit behind.

Ah, tennis.

Talk about it.
