There is just so much going on in the world with wheelchair and disabled sports! Hopefully I can re-cap this weeks happenings for you. I want to let all of you know that is getting closer to completion and I will be back in the field very soon! Here are this weeks updates.

> Wheelchair Tennis - ITF Masters - Atlanta, GA. World's #1 Player Michael Jeremiasz's retirement due to injury gives Tadeusz Kruszelnicki the win and a spot in the semi's where he will face 4th seed Shingo Kunieda. Satoshi Saida and Robin Aamerlam are on the other side of the draw playing today.

On the women's side... World No 1 Esther Vergeer (NED) lead a trio of Dutch players in to the semi-finals. Vergeer smoked World No 4 Jiske Griffioen 60 62 to gether place in the final four facing Sharon Walraven. Walraven won even more convincingly , she blew by Maaike Smit (NED) 61 60.

The next (and last) tournament of the year on U.S. turf is the U.S. Open Super Series in San Diego Oct.3rd - 8th.

> Disabled Sailing - 9/20/06 U.S. Disabled Sailing Team member Rick Doerr wins the (open) Sonar Long Island Sound Championship.

I'm sure there is alot more going on than that but I need to work on a story about the W/C Tennis Fed. Bye for now.
