The Tennis Channel Showed A Great No Strings Episode With Karatantcheva

just saw it...for those not familiar, the tennis channel has these "No strings" episodes where they follow a tennis pro around..this one was with sesil, filmed mostly during the us open and included her ice skating for the first time and taking a few spills, visiting fao schwarz toy store, and riding a horse through central park, and interviews through the show...if you are a sesil fan look for it on the tennis channel

Can we sort this out guys... I don't get it. WTA says that her name is pronounced "se-seel". If that's so, then how can her nickname be Special K?

If I'm not mistaken, Se-seel doesn't rhyme with special

She si so stubborn and seeking for attention that she likes to emphasize the K in her last name... that is why it is Special K... I doubt anyone calls her like that...

I read an article about her progress and rise in the rankings. It had a paragraph about her nickname "Special K" and explained why it was given to her.

They stated that "special" is given because it rhymes with Sesil, and K because her last name is so difficult to pronounce. I'll try to find the article if I can.

Was she real edgy, irritable, eyes darting around, scratching her arms and stuff?

They just showed a JFK documentary on TV and there's this blonde Bulgarian chick in the grassy knoll wearing "I Beat Venus at Roland Garros" t-shirt.
