Did Serena invent the "Come On !" ?

just wondering...

I mean, of course not the words themselves, but I just recently notice Roger and Roddick doing it in the same way Serena does it.

In a kinda like confident way right after winning a game, you know.

Just correct me if I'm being delusional.

Didn't Jimmy Conners used to say it? So if that's true than neither Serena nor Lleyton invented it.

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Did Serena invent the "Come On !" ?

Serena does it best. The Hewitt, Federer's come ons seem so contrived.

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Serena's has such primal passion. It is great.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Hewitt made it known commercially, but he didn't invent it..

Hewitt was the first of this generation to use it and he was the one who made it one of the best known catch phrases in sport...
