I've been reading all the threads about Martina's return to the tour next year, and it amazes me how many people are skeptical! This is a great thing for the tour - and yes - a Williams fan is saying this!!! Hear (or read in this case) me out:
People, this is a great thing for the game. Martina will add a spice that the game's been lacking. She's not afraid to say how she feels, as we all know. She doesn't back down to anybody, no matter how big and strong they are. The tour couldn't have asked for anything better! Remember all those great rivalry matches she had with Lindsay, Jennifer and the Williams sisters!?? Now they can just pick up where they let off! Seriously, Martina's comeback is just the boost the tour needed.
You are only partly right!
Martina will add some more spice to the
tour and bring some headlines.
That's all that can be
definite right now.
Yes, Martina will speak her mind, however I've
seen her mellow somewhat in the past few years
where she can say what she feels w/o blatantly
I think your expecting for her to cause drama.
I think you're sadly mistaken. I think she has
matured greatly and would only start bs if
Also, I do believe some of the bs that is nothing
is made into something because certain fans want
to hear and see what they want.
As for her game and rivalries,
don't get ahead of yourself.
The game is more difficult than when she left.
The younger girls and lower ranked players have
gotten fitter and more powerful. Many of her older
foes have had the power but have also gained knowledge
of the game having learned more of how to construct a
point, use spins, angles and such.
Martina pretty much needs to emulate Justine if
she wants to get back into it with the top girls.
Imp[roving her serve, getting stronger, and fitter.
This february she tried, won a set, but lost and then
dropped out of sight again.
Martina can do what she wants but she'll
have to work and work hard to get back.
It's not gonna be this cakewalk you seem
to think it is and she'll simply pick-up where
she left off. Which was competing but not
winning nearly as easy as she had in the past.
I wish her all the luck in the world and
it'll be interesting to see just how interested
she is in getting what she needs to be back
to where she wants to be.
I remeber her saying last year she didn't
want to comeback because she saw
what was happening with Venus.
Yet, in about a year's time or less her
she is once more.
So maybe Venus gave her some motivation
as well coming back from injury and form
trouble to win yet again.
