The New Generation: The Great Pretenders
Sorry. This crop of "breakthrough" players do not impress me at all. Do you remember when Venus came through, and you were i m p r e s s e d ? And when you first saw the dynamism of Henin's game? I'm talking about generational talent. Well - maybe not even that: just *special*.
Jankovic is nice, but just _flat_. I'm sorry, but Ivanovic just doesn't have enough movement, not enough verve or variety, enough *game*... maybe if we hold on, some talent hanging around just over the horizon will emerge and blow this crop of pretenders away. Lord: let it be so. Because really: it will only be a question of Davenport/ Williams x 2/ Henin being kind enough to shuffle off to retirement and collect their pensions before this crop of journeywomen "talents" get a bite of the cherry.
If Capriati et al could recover from injury, they could easily mix it with this crew. You all know this is true, even in their 30s..! Maybe Chris Evert and Margaret Court could kick some ass with this ridiculous motley crue, lol.
