Cheeky Caroline Maes

Speaking of Serenapova:

Our Belgian colleague Bart Fieremans of the Het Laaste Nieuws newspaper kindly translated an exchange that occurred during the Flemish-speaking portion of his interview with Caroline Maes. Fieremans asked the 24-year-old after her 6-1, 6-4 loss to Serena Williams whether she was aware she had won more games against Williams than Sharapova had managed to win in the Australian Open final.
According to Fieremans, Maes responded, "I won as many games off Serena as Sharapova did in the Australian Open and Miami combined." You could look it up. Maes apparently did.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Cheeky Caroline Maes

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

she just said the truth
well done Caroline
so next time you will beat Sharapova (if you ever has to play her)

And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off

Not very clever to give such a comment after the trashing that Belgium got.

No one can accuse Miss Maes of not knowing exactly what is going on in the world of tennis.

Re: Cheeky Caroline Maes

But against Sharapova, Serena has to play 100%, against Maes? Uhm... not 100
