The last tennis player I ever knew to truly talk trash was Hingis. Compared to what basketball players, baseball players and martial artists say, calling anything tennis players say to or about each other, 'trash talk', is a joke.
What I would give, just once, for Serena to come out BEFORE a match vs a top tenplayer and say, "I'm gonna kick her ass up one side of the court and down the other. Keep my drink cold and my food warm. I'll be done in 40 minutes."
THAT'S trash talk.
