And I absolutely hate it when people say things like "Oh, she's still young, she has plenty of time" because that sets people up for complacency. I mean, people kept saying, "Oh, Martina Hingis is still young, she has plenty of time to win the French Open." Yeah, and where is she now? She's playing a tournament for charity only "in the hope" of making a comeback to pro tennis. It's gutting. Then, when Tatiana Golovin was left off the Olympic squad, people kept saying, "Oh, Tatiana is still young, she will be there at the next Olympics, she has time," and I think "bullshit!" How do they know that? What if she sustains a serious injury between now and then? Then it's over and she wouldn't have had that opportunity to play the Olympics for France. I absolutely hate it when players, commentators or just ordinary people say, "oh, she/he's still young, they have time." Nobody knows how much time we have. Go for it now! What are you waiting for!? End of tirade.
