The only American woman in the fourth round of Wimbledon is...

Shenay Perry? Who would ever have guessed that? She's ranked 62nd in the world, but this will go higher after the fortnight, as she went out in the third round last year.

I find it strange that people are talking about "the next generation" of American women including Perry and Jamea Jackson--but Perry's actually only 4 years younger than Venus Williams.

As for Williams, the defending Wimbledon champion, she lost today to 29th seed Jelena Jankovic. Thus, for the first time since 1999, there will be no Williams sister in the final--Serena didn't even enter this year, due to injury.
