"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
I love when Cappy gets angry! She cracks me up! Makes her fun to watch, shows attitude on the court.
i know! when it was said that she was trying to be calmer on court, i was ready to cry and when our commentators said she plays better when she's not mad, i was like "dude, do you even WATCH Jen play?!"
Someone brought up Hantuchova/Harkleroad....what about that Hantuchova/Asagoe(?) Daniela had a dramatic meltdown there. Didn't she have a huge lead with match points and went on to lose in 3 sets? Dramatic display of emotion!
Vera meltdowns are legendary!
Then who was that Spanish Player...who cursed up a bluestorm in spanish? She ended up getting a bad leg injury that match. Why can't I remember her name!!!!!!!
Although I love the ueber-controlled Goddess on the tennis court that she is, I miss the teenage Venus. She was ultra-confident and had the swagger of a young champion...she had such Flash! She still does but it is so much more sophisticated.
vs. Novota was one of her best fits....the beads was her worst! I felt so bad for what she went through! That was her turning point.
It is true, that we haven't seen Serena have many fits! We know she gets very angry at herself. She really hasn't been in the position of losing all that often. I thought at the FO last year, when she had some very challenging matches we did see some behaviour that was shocking! She has loads of intensity that she just channels differently.
JENN and most of her fits are ridiculous. Her rants go on sometimes WAY to long and when her mouth gets going...WOOOOOOO!!! Look out! She can really fall apart! I DO like it when she incorporates her anger into her playing. She comes up with some of the most awesome shots when that fire is in her eye. She wasn't angry enough last year at the US OPEN against L'enfant Terrible (CD) though.
