White players outsmart, and outthink thier opponents

black players can only hope to win on thier athleticism and physical strength...

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"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. "

As Chris Evert said after Venus beat Lindsay at the 00 Wimbledon Championships..."Venus just showed who the better athlete is out there today" Not the better player, not played smarter...but damn athleticiscm wins again.

You don't win as much as they have on being athletic alone.

That's why I asked the question.

I wouldn't worry about what she has to say; she no longer has a commentating job.

Well..It would be hard to say that the Williams aren't the most athletic players out there Doesn't mean they are not smart on the court....

have you heard one commentator say the Venus or Serena outwitted, or outsmarted thier opponent?

In my mind that's exactly what Serena did to Hingis 99 Us Open.

Evert used to say that even when Graf played Seles, and when she (Evert, that is) played Navratilova. Besides, what is wrong with being stronger and faster, anyway? Tennis is, after all, a sport .

Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)

"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
