Serena: "I'll play anybody with the exception of Nadal, Federer and Santoro"

Serena has no problem with whom she plays

At the Cup



Serena Williams doesn't worry about the competition, and that was evident Monday when she arrived at the Family Circle Cup unaware that Justine Henin had withdrawn from this week's tournament.

"I thought she was in the tournament until you told me that," Williams said.
"I'll play anybody with the exception of (Rafael) Nadal, (Roger) Federer and (Fabrice) Santoro. Other than that, I'm open for anybody."

Anybody could be No. 2 seed Maria Sharapova, if both she and Williams reach the quarterfinals, a pairing worthy of the championship round in most tournaments.

Williams likes her chances this week at the Family Circle Cup.

"I'm feeling really good about my game," she said. "I'm just taking everything a day at a time and not getting too excited or too depressed.

"I love playing on the clay. I have a lot of fun on the clay. And this is a good clay court. It's not too slow, it's not too fast and you can produce a good slide on it."

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

I don't think Serena wants to be added to that list.

I love Serena's ambition.
If she believes she can beat some of the men, that's all I need to support her.
Because she was hitting the shit out of the ball in Miami.

I love this quote. It is great to hear Serena has respect for the Magician.

I have never been a Serena Williams fan. But this year I have been warming to her. I loved her play at Miami, it was the most patient and diciplined and varied I have ever seem her play, and this comment on Fabrice makes me smile big time.

I will always be someone who 90% of the time roots for the underdog but when Serena is opposing other top players particularly Henin and Sharapova I think henceforth I am going to be on her side a lot of the time.

I don't think she does. She's said before repeatedly that she plays on the women's tour and doesn't want to face any of the men on the men's tour. Anyhoo Serena's just serenaing around.

I just hope Serena doesn't get injured and the tournament will be great

Yeah, sure, right. Fabrice would show some stuff she would have NIGHTMARES about. He could beat ANY WTA player EASILY. He has beaten Nadal, Sampras, Agassi, Blake. Serena or any other female player would be destroyed by his magic shots and colorful shirts. Of course, she could then say that Fabrice hit "lucky shots"
