Martina to win the French Open?
I just received my latest edition of Tennis magazine. And for the first time in a long time, Chris Evert, on her page there in the front, predicts a Jennifer/Serena final. I won't go into all the details of her article, but maybe the "Chris" curse on Martina is lifted. Fans of Jennifer and Serena need to worry now!
And, for those of us who view Chris' "expert" analysis as no better than ours, Chris concludes, "I still don't have a clue in 2002." I think she's trying to say this year has been unpredictable but the sentence can be read in another way that is quite comical if you're not a fan of Chris' commentating (I loved her as a player, she, imo, stinks as a commentator/predictor).
Another bizarrely ominous thing here, I'm not sure Chris meant to say this, she writes, "If she [Martina] wins another Slam title, whatever and whenever it is, it'll be very sweet." Notice the use of the word "if" rather than "when." I'm not sure this was something Chris did intentionally or not. Given her statement I mentioned above, I think it's just an oversight on her part!
Speaking of curses, I just realized that Iva "cheated" the Curse of Sandrine Testud when she won Family Circle Cup. Iva always is breaking the rules, lol!
