Pierce has such great comments on Serena and Venus...I love MAry

Q. A couple years ago when the Williams sisters came in here, it was sort of a foregone conclusion they would reach the finals. They might play in the fourth round. From your perspective, what's happened to Venus and Serena?

MARY PIERCE: I don't know. You know, they're the best people to ask.

Q. Do you sense they're not as engaged in the sport as they were before?

MARY PIERCE: You know, I don't know. I think Serena and Venus are really interesting girls. I like them a lot. I have admiration for them and respect. I think they're doing a lot of great things for women and sports on and off the court. Very interesting.

I think that they're really the best ones to ask I think of what's going on with them.

Q. Sometimes the Williams sisters are criticized for all their off‑court activities as a distraction. You had a very nice positive comment a moment ago about them being good for sports and for women. Can you expand on that a little bit, please? >

MARY PIERCE: Well, I think also for their color, it's great. You see a lot other girls that are coming out now, young girls in the USTA that are coming out and playing. I think that was great. We had Zina before and Laurie. You know, just for young girls in general, to get them out there and play sports and have confidence in themselves.

I think Venus and Serena do have confidence in themselves and they go after what they want and they know what they want. I think those are great qualities to have. To dream and to know that things can become reality.

Q. The off‑court activity has a plus side to it?

MARY PIERCE: You know, I don't know. I don't look at things that way actually. I look at things totally differently. If you're happy and you're doing what you want to do, it's great. That's all that really matters.

Mary Pierce (the only queen)
Venus Williams (the real athlet)
Anna Kournikova (the beauty)
Maria Sharapova (the precious)
Jelena Dokic (the tchiiii girl)
Mirjana Lucic (the rock)
Victoria Azarenka (the alien)
Daniela Hantuchova (the classy style)

Yeah it's for that reason, some journalists don't like to interview Mary, she never says bad comments about a player, she is always nice with everybody!!!

GO MARY YOU CAN DO IT GIRL

Mary is such a class act.

I liked her comment about how Venus and Serena are doing great thjings for WOMEN. it is so damn true. I also loved her "you need to ask them comments" But I especially loved the last three sentences.

WHATEVER MAKES YOU HAPPY WHICH IS WHAT REALLY MATTERS!!.

you would not be able to find many active high profile players that would say such glowing things about Justine, Venus and Serena in a few short weeks.

Mary is the best. Anyone who dislikes her is a moron. I'm sorry but it's true - I can understand disliking Patty but not Mary.

That's so sweet of Mary. A lot of players could learn a thing or two from her about not disrespecting your opponents.

Really, don't even look at me...

Talking

Mary is a smart sportswoman. She refuses to get into gossipmongering and saying things that aren't necessary.
