nice try, honey, would you like to throw Coria's match in there as well? it's not about number of games won, your opponent may be extremely talented and better than you... it's more about lack of skills or effort, and we can definitely call upon a lot of WTA matches as showcases for poor quality and/or desire...

is this the joke of the year?
not even Navratilova would dare to say something like this with a straight face, no pun intended...

The opposite can also be done, you know
that is right, honey, the opposite can also be done... but as you well know, but I seriously doubt will be honest enough to admit it out, those are the exceptions to the general rule. The WTA has presented so many poor executed match-ups for quite some time now, that it's no wonder we all marvel dumbfound at those when they occasionally happen...
