(Well, that and both Venus and Serena down with the flu)
Well, some very interesting points here...
You are right, it couldn't be Melanie's face. That would have been the first face she ever saw in her life. SHe should be used to that by now.
I don't know about reading some of her old interviews. She might end up RETIRING if she did. I mean she was supposed to, before Vee was to get on the throne???
And maybe it's watching her old movies which is making her too stubborn to change??? Arrogance goes hand in hand with winning. I did really like her old "confident" self. Let's face it she was able to back it up with her play.
With V & S coming down with flu, that might not be enough. There are different types of Flu. It must be the one that makes you Bed-ridden. Even then their dad must bolt down the door and guard it. Playing Martina could be good enough incentive to ignore a severe flu
Seriously, Melanie has been a great influence on Martina. Martina would not function well without her mum. That's a fact, it ahs been proven. SHe tried it, you might say not long enough, but ut didn't work.
Remember we would not be having this conversation if she was still winning. And she would have been winning if The sisters, Jenny and Lindsay were not on the scene. SO they are her PROBLEM, not her mum!
