You say it best, Martina!
when you read the whole transcript of m. navratilova's last interview at the us open, she's like
2 or 3 comments heard on eurosport france the last few weeks:
-from sarah pitkowski : " looking for the us champ ? Don't look any further, her she is !!! ( she said that during toronto )
-still pitkowski : " 3 matches to go for justine to be the NY queen" ( right after the safina match )
well, pitkowski was the first ever victim of justine ( antwerpen 1999 ), so she knew what she was talking about!!
-arnaud boetsch, commentating the us final, said about a million time "what a HUGE heart she's got" ( and that man won a thrilling 5 sets last match in the davis cup final in 1996, saving 8 or 9 match points on the way )
And there is also that man commentating RG on french television, Jean pol Lothe ( i'm sure nobody has ever heard of him here ). He's the former captain of french davis cup team ( in the 80's ), he's very very respected in france, but he's also , and mostly, the man who DISCOVERED justine when she was 7 ! He was doing scouting job for the AFT , and discovered our idol. He didn't say it by himself, it's an other commentator who once said" don't be so modest, if she( justine ) is there, it is partly because of you. "
well, back to the topic, i hope you guys will have the chance to hear his comments during a match of justine because he's like
about her!!! i've watched the rg final a thousand times just to hear him talk about justine!
