The Week After Wimbledon

The week following Wimbledon is always somewhat of a downer.

The WTA takes a break from the mad season of European ball to give most of its players a week off. Meanwhile, a few of the world's top stars were in action via Fed Cup - which included two exciting semifinal ties.

The ATP goes from the World of Whites at Wimbledon to the World of Obscure in Gstaad, Bastad and Newport.

There's always one saving grace of such a weird week: the Hall of Fame inductions in Newport. Yesterday, Pete Sampras and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario were welcomed in as the class of 2007.

Yet the biggest news of the week in the tennis world had to be from another former player, Miss Kim Clijsters. Or should I say, Mrs. Brian Lynch?

Though Barry MacKay drives me crazy as a commentator, you have to love Pete Sampras in this interview. Always humble, always well-spoken, and now, always a Hall of Famer. Congratulations Pete.
