Thanks a lot!

As many of us (not all, shout-out to the international contingent!) get ready for a whole buncha turkey eating today, there's plenty to be thankful for (like little Tillie for instance!). And there's a lot for us tennis fans to be thankful for after what we saw this past year, such as:

• Rafael Nadal's hard work being rewarded.

• Roger Federer continuing his march toward history.

• Both Williams sisters winning Slams.

• Spain and Russia both putting forth true team efforts and capturing the Davis Cup and Fed Cup, respectively.

• The top two expanding into the big four in men's tennis.

• Classic matches, such as Rafa-Roger at Wimbledon.

• Jelena Jankovic fighting her way to the top.

• Dinara Safina turning it around and playing to her potential.

• The Olympics, where Elena Dementieva achieved her career dream.

• Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka's doubles victory celebration!

• And me, personally, thankful for anyone reading what I write here at Tennis Talk, Anyone?!

So, if you're so inclined to celebrate it, have a Happy Thanksgiving, and if you don't, then have a great day!

Belated Happy Thanksgiving, Van!

Of the things on your list, I like the Federer/Wawrinka celebration the best. (It would be Dinara, but I still don't think she's played up to her full potential.)
