so espn was obviously saying if Serena was IN the draw, it was a foregone conclusion that she was the winner?

and he said to me:
do not seal up the words of the prophecy,for the time is near
behold, I am coming soon



its a one time thing,
it just happens, a lot

I've heard more ludacrous things that Serena being the favourite for a tennis tournament, regardless of warmup events......

But yes, Henin should be in the poll, its just a dumb poll anyway...

ESPN doesn't really care about tennis or actually having an in-depth perception of the game, so I'm not surprised.

ESPN is about ratings. It's just a poll and nothing to get worked up over. You shouldn't let things such as polls effect your mental health.

You know, I'm hoping to change that. I'm in college as a journalism major, and I plan to become a sports writer. My dream job would be to write for the tennis section of ESPN. I've played the game for almost eight years and I've been following tennis for even longer, so I know what's going on. Hopefully, if that dream were to come true, you guys will get to see more coverage and analysis of tennis.

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

You might have a point. There is a certain fan base in this discussion group that actually writes hate mail to tennis columnists who don't support their queens. Nuts if you ask me.

Give it up Jules. Your stalking threads in an attempt to bring the sisters or their fans into any little thing is embarassing. This thread has nothing to do with Williams fans you troll.

I dont get how lindsay is a fave. She wants to play hardcourt tennis on the clay an has never made it past the semis and has hardly been further than the 4r

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams

Funny you should say that, considering you were the first troll this thread with the "mental" comment. We're all used to it.

Speaking of "mental", its very passive-aggressive to troll a thread, then act like a victim.
