It's odd how some players say the same thing and they get lambasted (Williams, Williams, Hingis), but others say it and it's the next coming of Jesus Christ. I'm not bashing La Sprem...it's obvious she has talent...and as a player you HAVE to believe you are going to win each match, otherwise why bother? I just would like some clarification and different view points as to the differences. Is it that Sprem doesn't "act" like she's confident as opposed to say, Serena, who just exudes confidence just from her walk?

Agree people are sometimes inconsistent but it also depends on what exactly you say and how you say it. "I believe I can beat anyone when I am playing" is a statement about how you feel about your chances and the spirit in which you enter matches - its positive but unobjectionable. " I can beat anyone" may be different - it might sound boastful. "I am unbeatable" or "No one can beat me at my best" or "I am the best" just takes the progression further.

Part of the problem is that some players do not have English as their first language and understandably get lost as many words and phrases in English can have multiple meanings. Even English speakers don't always get it right.

Note that K-lina says "I can" as opposed to "I will". This may sound like nit-picking (and I am very opposed to nit-picking every little thing a person says), but the two are not the same.

And I should say, I am just speaking up for K-lina, not saying that anyone else is arrogant.

That´s the way it is....some people can talk and other don´t have that right. At least both Williams backed up the confidence and the talk.

Always bet on black!

no wonder tennis is considered a pussy, delicate sport to the rest of the sports world . cos the fans make it that way

any other sport . and a players confidence in their game and their team is completely praised . "we WILL win" . the fans love it

here . it is constantly condemned


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.
