Angry Davis Cup- for women?

You know what? Tennis is still a little sexist. I mean, both Williams' sisters could totally kick most of the ATP's spinters; Jennifer, Monica, Steffi, Martina (both of them), and Tracy have all these tennis records; and women's tennis is SO stable at the moment and great - but do we see equal opportunity for everyone in tennis? Do we have a Davis Cup for women? Not that I see!!!
It just bugs me... I'm a little feminist and as much as I love watching the ATP (cos guys ROCK), I think women would make Davis Cup so much fun. It just bugs me- what do y'all think?

oh my

Look at me, my depth perception must be off again 'cause this hurts deeper than I thought it did. It has not healed with time, it just shot down my spine. You look so beautiful tonight, reminds me of how you laid us down and gently smiled before you destroyed my life. Would you find it in your heart, to make this go away and let me rest in pieces? Would you find it in your heart, to make this go away and let me rest in pieces? Look at me, my depth perception must be off again. You got much closer than I thought you did..

And also, last time that Venus and Serena played a male pro, it was nicotine fiend Karsten Braasch, ranked in the 200's, and he beat one sister 6-1 and followed it up by beating the other sister (rested) 6-2.

They may be much better these days but so are the men...the result would be about the same if not worse for V & S.

I say more stupid stuff at https://twitter.com/Hurleytennis.

Relax dudes, the girl made an honest mistake.
you know what would be cool? if they put the two events together! they could have 2 men's singles matches, 2 women's singles matches, one women's doubles, one men double's and a mixed doubles match! that would be amazing!

I'm taling about a team of, say, six people, the best players every country can offer! think big! think Lindsay, Monica Serena, pete, James & Andi vs. Amelie, Dechy, Arnaud, sebastian etc. oooh, I'm getting myself excited now .
