Pratt On Gay Radio In Australia

Hi All

We are lucky in Melbourne, Australia to have a gay radio station called Joy Melbourne. As part of their schedule they have a sports program called " Good Sports" , to my surprise last night Nicole Pratt co hosted the entire program. To be slightly surprised is to put it mildly. The issues regarding sexuality were not canvassed which was rather surprising on a gay radio station. Here is a brief summary of what she said.

- Tennis is 90% mental
- Hard to form friendships with fellow players
- Alicia Molik will be a top 10 player within the next couple of months
- The Russian domination of the tour will continue and will expand..
- Elena Dementieva is the best athlete in women's tennis.
- Maria Sharapova is the real deal.
- Nadia Petrova is likely to be the next russian to win a grand slam.
- The William sisters won't regain their top positions in the game as they have to many technical flaws in their game.
- Williams sisters are not gracious in defeat but they are improving
- When she retires which is in about 3 years wants to coach.
- Nicole Vaidisova is the future of the game
- Eleni Daniilidou very talented but has not lived up to true potential.
- Believes that Monica would have been the greatest ever player if not for the stabbing.
- Believed that Daniela Hantuchova was anorexic last year.
- 2000 Olympics in Sydney was the highlight of her career.
- Many players find Arantxa Sanchez annoying.
- Believed Mark Phillipoussis can win a grand slam if he puts the effort in.

It was a great 2hrs and hopefully they will have some more tennis players in the lead up to the Ozzie Open.

Cheers,

"The William sisters won't regain their top positions in the game as they have to many technical flaws in their game."

What the hell would she know about what it takes to get to the top of the game?

Yep. Because as we all know, only as a former no.1 ranked player you are allowed to voice your opinion on other players.
And of course, all coaches of current/former no.1 ranked players have been no.1 ranked players themselves.

still laughing

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

good old pratt... ill never forget that shot she hit against lindsay i think last year in sydney... she was running from the forehand side, from the tramlines, to a shot that lindsay whacked down the middle, and she hit this backhand from there that was so weird and unusual that went into lindsay forehand side and hit the tramline... it was like in slow motion as if lindsay was thinking "wtf was that" good shot nicole

but nicole prob does no a lot and remember, as she said at the beginning of the aussie circuit at the beginning of this year, she's expected now to make the 4th round at grand slam events
