I like Sveta's story. Because it's very rare to have mother and daughter both be great athletes.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!

or because you wanted to pick a russian player but wouldn't pick sharapova because you're a crazy weirdo who thinks she's american.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Will the Dokic story have a happy ending?

Re: Which currently active player life would be the best inspiration for a movie?

IMO - Maria Sharapova (for winning Wimbledon 04), Serena Williams (for her domination), Venus Williams (for winning Wimbledon 05) or even Yung-Jan Chan maybe

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

not really, i just think that a different excellent RUSSIAN player would make a great book plot. maybe she could even write the book herself in her native language of RUSSIAN while in her home country of RUSSIA.

Yes, she won an Olympic medal in the 4x400 run.
But Sveta's mom is a 6 time world champion cyclist, who set 19 world records.
Sveta's brother won a silver medal in Atlanta in cycling.

Patty Schynder.
Her life on the tour has been a movie.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.
