Read this - so inspirational from Mary Pierce!

This is part of a french to english translation of an article published yesterday:

Mary Pierce refused similarly to surrender: "I have a feeling that it is not the instant to stop. And as long as I feel this, I am thoroughly going to devote myself. It is the first time that I hurt myself just like that and I know that it is a big test which is brewing for me. With my wound in the foot, I must stop for six months. But there, it is not similar. I know that this is going to be hard, with several months to have to compromise with pain. But there is indeed a reason for which it arrived at me. This is going to make me stronger."

She has the mental and physical strength to come back. And when I talked on the phone to her, in no way did I get the impression that she is finished.



What an inspiration - such belief and conviction, I just know that Mary will come back and that we will see her in Beijing 2008

Re: Read this - so inspirational from Mary Pierce!

You talked on the phone to her?

When/how come?

Or is it a joke about you talking on the phone?

Dokic Pierce didnt talk to her on the phone. It was Xavier Morea, Mary's trainer. Its a rough translation of a French article, Morea was telling French journalists of his conversation with Mary after the injury.

Re: Read this - so inspirational from Mary Pierce!

Mary has matured through the years into a wonderfully sensitive human being with a remarkably positive attitude and take on life.
She's already been through a lot, and many injuries have affected her career at stages where it seemed she was on her way to possibly win a huge lot... and now, to read these words is really inspirational.

It teaches a lesson to all of us, I think. And I believe some of her colleagues who're very prone to moaning and self-commiserating when their stomach's bothering them, or they call the trainer out of the blue on 5-5 in the third set... well, they might learn something, too

I think the "talked on the phone" thingy was supposed to make Mary's message a little more dramatic.

The violins are scorching the ceiling right now.

What a lady, what a strong and positive person she is, we could all learn from her, she is just so postive and finds good in every situation no matter how tough.
