Anna Kournikova answered 2 of my questions today! (both interesting)

monicAnna: Anna, what do you think of the state of the Tour right now? Do you feel at all like women's tennis was in a better place when you were around, along with the likes of Seles, Capriati, Arantxa, among other legends?

Anna Kournikova: what an awesome question!
Anna Kournikova: i definitely feel that it was so exciting. we had the legends like you mentioned and a lot of young people like me in the late 90s and early 2000...
Anna Kournikova: now anybody can win and there's not as many famous names...
Anna Kournikova: there's sharapova and the williams sisters but there's not as many recognizable names...
Anna Kournikova: so i definitely think it was a more exciting time when i was playing.

---------------

monicAnna
: You haven't made an "official" retirement announcement just yet... is that something you plan to do when you're positive you'll never come back, or are you just gonna let things be?

Anna Kournikova: i never made a retirement announcement because it started as taking a break for an injury i had...
Anna Kournikova: and then it continued with me not wanting to come back until i'm 100%...
Anna Kournikova: i just wanted to avoid the hoopla and i don't know whether i'm retired forever or if there's a chance i might play 1 tournament, 5 tournaments, etc...
Anna Kournikova: i don't want to be one of those people who retires and then everybody talks about how they come out of retirement, even if i came back just to play 1 tournament.

Got a 3rd one in

monicAnna: What kind of music are you into these days? And on a sort of similar note, do you sympathize with Britney Spears' situation, being hounded by the paparazzi and the media?

Anna Kournikova: i definitely sympathize with her being hounded but everybody has choices. you can take yourself out of that environment and make arrangements that make it hard to be hounded...
Anna Kournikova: i haven't bought a CD in a long time actually...
Anna Kournikova: i like listening to my old russian stuff and i do listen to the radio as well but i'm that much into music.

I wish we could see her back in tournaments Can't believe her last tournament is now pretty exactly 5 years ago.
