i thought he was her biggest fan....and said she has the best game in the world...and apparently that means since he's a slam champ, he knows what he's talking about...

I have never figured out John. He acts as thought he is a big fan of Justine sings her praises to death only to turn around and make snide remarks about her. he may be joking but he has been in the limelight to know that the media don't translate jokes, they spin to make it all sound he was serious.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

don't worry people, John still absolutely adores Justine
He was on Belgian television 2 days ago, and had nothing but praise,
of course maybe he is just a hypocrite like some other people...

But he's right she used injury time outs oh, and 3 grand slams

I don't think it's so much that he's a Justine fan, as he is a non-Williams fan. Otherwise, I don't think he could care less.

again, about those Williams girls, he says some insane poop, then commentates for the BBC @ Wimby saying how mentally they are so superior, breaking their opponents down with the mind, physically they are out of this world, they are so good, etc etc etc....

i seriously think he has issues

Regardless of how H-H got to #1 she got there. Of course her sportmanship is questionable and she does use gamesmanship. IMO, it's an open and closed case. What's the big deal? Everyone knows this, but everyone also knows she's a great player.

Of course John said the right word of how Justine became number #1 and Kim
also without winning grandslam to be number at one time.
Anybody in his or her right mind will never agree that had Venus and Serena and
on tour last year, Justine and Kim could be #1 and #2 in the world.
You all know how Venus got there. She beat the then world number one Hingis
and number two Davenport consistently in grandslams (US 2000/2001-- Wimbledom
2000/2001 to get there. Serena did the same thing and she got there.
But which of the Justine fan or Kim's can show the credentials for their positions
number one and number two.

Maybe John adores Justine and thinks she uses Gamesmanship?

I don't think that is necessarily a negative to him....so I dont' see that comment as anything but a joke.

Yeah, Of course you're right, John, you just forgot bribing linesmen, umpires and crowds and psyching out her opponents with former Russian chess champions. In fact, she's never won anything, ever. They should make a special WTA rule to ban her from playing for ever. Oh, by the way, Johnny why did you write the preface to her book (2 full pages, mind you). What was it you said in it again? Oh wait, true, some of the GM people who love to judge and criticise don't even know any language outside English. OK, let me translate for you, cause the book was in French (it's also available in Dutch now). 'A final at Wimbledon, semi-finals in the other grand slam tournaments, wins against the best world players (did I hear the Williams sisters?) justify Justine's position at the top of this sport [...) I thought I had seen everything in this sport, yet I remain certain that Justine's best is yet to come.'

And how right you were proved to be, John

Now, maybe this was just a joke you had, I know you love to bait and taunt. When you were a player yourself (one of the best ever), they didn't call you 'dirty brat' for nothing, did they?
