Serena's Childhood Ambition To Be #0

She said after match today that she wasn't very bright (her words, not mine!), and she wanted to be "number zero". I thought this was pretty funny, myself.

She's one step away from realizing her dream now!
Watch out WTA - SisterSerena will be ranked 0 very soon

This beats the other "quote of the day" by a LONG shot.

Thanks for the bit.

Yea I saw that too. Bud Collins interviewed her and she started crying and was very emotional. After the zero comment, Serena said Richard said no, zero is not the best, 1 is the best and that was her dream since then to be #1.

Serena also said she would prefer to win Wimbledon to being number one.

LOL

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I think it went somthing like this after the 0 comment:
-My dad asked me. Serena what do you want to be when you grow up?
-I want to be the best.

Exclamation With a childs' heart...

I too, was amused by Serenas' little story to Bud Collins, when he interviewed her after the Mauresmo match. I remember thinking, "only in a childs' mind would zero be better". It was truely funny.

The way Serena's been playing lately, maybe we do need to classify her as something other than #1.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

Ahhhh child's mind! So pure, so clear! After all, Zero does come before One. Even the Ancient Romans couldn't figure this out: they called year-0, year-1; and we've been stuck with that mistake ever since.

Tennis Power, persond--ditto!

I thought the same thing when I heard Serena say that. Only a child would see zero coming before one and equating it with being first and the best!

Good one, Serena.
