Re: S3 Week 11, Charleston, USA, Tier I

Tulyaganova brings out her big guns

Before the beginning of the clay court season we sat down with Iroda Tulyaganova who has experienced some unexpected success on the OWTTA tour, reaching two finals in the last four tournaments - dominating her opponents in winning the title at Indian Wells.

When asked about her recent success, Iroda said the key was patience and her impressive upper body strength. "Some of the girls on the tour are little wimps and I am able to crush them with my big pipes. I will definitely be bringing my guns to the clay court season!"

When asked about the current state of the OWTTA tour, Iroda was extremely positive, however, she has little patience for the quitters who have emerged on tour. "I think the tour is awesome, it just requires some patience." Regarding some of the recent retirements, Iroda stated "Bah...I think Hingis would rather snort coke than play tennis. Alize cries that she will retire, yet she wins tournaments. No wonder no one likes her, she is such a bitch. And our current #1? Giantassena? I think that says it all. She should spend more time working out and less time eating cheetos. My pipes are big and I'm going to crush you little complainers!"

We wish Iroda the best as she and her big guns start play on clay.

Cornet in the USA:

French womans Alizé Cornet saw a little bit of her form return last week taking home the coveted Miami trophy, her 1st title since Antwerp last year. This boosted her ranking back in the right direction and restored some of her confidence.

How do you feel about your win Alizé?

'Well it's definately a start, it's my best result by far this year but I still don't feel I'm playing my best there is still a lot of work to do to reach my early 07 season form. I'm putting in a lot more hours training and I hope to see it pay off with another big run here. I've still not made my mind up about my future but I am leaning toward staying a bit longer'

What do you think of the comments made by Ironda Tulyaganova?

'Who?'

The Indian Wells Fluke Champion

'Oh her, lucky shots? I was talking to my friends Nicole and Anna about her. She is just another novice crying for attention, everyone will have forgotten about her by Roland Garros. The only reason she has had success so far is people haven't worked out her game yet. The ball-basher won't have any success on clay, you need a brain - something she doesn't have. She can bash the ball as hard as she likes, i'll just pull her off the court with some nice angles. Lets she is the dumb bitch can run!

So you don't think much of her 'guns'?

If she wants guns she should be a body builder, this is tennis and she is nothing compared to Grand Slam champions like me and Serena. Tell her, she only has the right to be a bitch when she wins a Slam, until then talk to the hand sister!
