JUSTINE has become much more affable on tv.

Just wanted to say that I have always loved Juju's game and intensity on the court but I think that her great success and her happy marriage have not made her arrogant at all like some number ones in the past. She seems much more approachable with the other players, just gave a great interview with Chris Fowler and Pam Shriver on ESPN in which she cracked jokes about her match with Cappy being showed during the rain next year at the US OPEN. and she handled Brad Gilbert's assholish comments very gracefully.

Also thumbs up to Mary Carillo, Pam, Patrick and Chris Fowler for putting BRAD PRICKBERT in his place.

I thought Justine was very pleasant and relaxed in that interview just now. Sometimes in the past she seemed uncomfortable. Nice to see her adjusting well to No. 1 status and being in the spotlight.

oops... one less thing for her haters to pick on...

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Yes i really thank that she is growing and starting to overcome the many deep wounds or her childhood. I know her haters hate to hear about but she really did have a very hard childhood losing her mother early and being pressured by her father.

Although I'm not a fan of Justine, I do think she handled the interview very well.

I'm at a loss at who these arrogant past #1's could be.

Frankly could you have made your argument, if it were strong enough, stand by itself? Bashing other players to praise Justine seems odd. Is her lack of arrogance solely reliant on others being what she's not?

And if Justine's past can be taken into account for her attitude, etc., on the court, then it might as well be used as a universal standard for all players to excuse their initial phases of "arrogance".

she was very professional about it. she simply said that she doesn't take what he said too seriously. more importantly she even said that she understands that there's differences between the two gender's game and it's hard to compare the two. wow what a big girl

sorry for this sidetrack comment, but do you think brad gilbert dislikes justine because her performance at the US Open seemed to eclipse (in my opinion) Andy Roddick's first grand slam? i really despise that man... the nerve of him. Brad was being interviewed a few days ago by Chris and towards the end Brad was punching jokes at Chris about how he wears makeup....HELLO THE MAN'S ON TV, of course he's wearing make up.

i'm sorry but if you want to punch fun of someone, don't do it when you're a GUEST on someone's program.

Nah. He's pretty rude to anyone who isn't American, a man, or coached by him.

He thinks he's being funny but he's just coming off as a "Grade A Asshole"

I browse once in a while.

What did she actually say?I would love to know that.But it's pretty obvious that she's staying with her both feet on the ground and can crack a joke once and a while in her interviews.Actually it's nothing new to me,she does it all the time when gives an interview in French.But it has been quite difficult for her to do the same in English,but I'm glad that she does it now.
Seems like that comment made by Brad Gilbert made quite some noise in Australia.Jus for the info:Justine's hittingpartner in Australia is a guy called Anthony John (Martina H's former hittingpartner) or something like that.And they say that he's top-500 material but he stopped so he could study and he said in an interview that he can beat her once and a while.Which means sometimes Justine beats him.So there goes his theory about Justine being blown away by the 1000th man of the world.Anywayz:about Brad hating Justine,I don't know Roddick actually thanked Justine for inspiring him to come back in his semi against Nalbandian.He said that he was thinking about her semi against Jen when he was down and it gave him strength to come back in his semi.So I don't really know what to think.

Allez.

Andy does like Justine for sure. Also Justine showed up at the finals of the US OPEN to watch Andy win.

Brad is the real problem.

I just about rolled off the couch when they refered to the "silly things" that "he sometimes says" that they "don't always agree with"

I don't like her. I think she's way too uptight. I'm pretty sure she's dominating all the people around her. And her marriage? I don't see it last. Just my impression.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
