Resolved Question: Vania King, Varvara
Who gets the last US spot for the Olympics? Do you think they should decide it entirely on rankings or give Venus the nod for being a legend and acquiring a tough illness?
BQ: The French have a term called "belle chaude" which really doesn't have an English equivalent. It means something like "beautiful because she is ugly." Which doesn't make sense until you find yourself attracted to an ugly person. Who on the ATP/WTA is belle chaude to you? For me, it was always Myskina. She wasn't very hot...but I found her irresistible.
BQ2: How tall will Maria Sharapova's grandchildren be? Verminator, You're totally correct. The expression I am thinking of is "belle laide."
