Re: So, what's the casualities around here?
I'm so happy for Anna. She has worked so hard to improve her game and it shows. Presently she is the only one to reach the first two major finals winning one therefore I think she is the most fitting for the #1 spot.
Of the top three I like her the best. She has a nice personality and game. I think the Maria fans hate her because she will now rival Maria for media attention. I heard that she was building a house in CA, if she moves to the US then she stand a good chance to upstage Maria because I think people will be warmer and more receptive to Anna.
BTW I noticed in the "power shot" ad the dog had to say Maria's name and put her in a tennis setting and the dog referencing that she was a tennis star. That is a clear sign that through market research Maria is not as well known as some people think. Usually there is no need to mention the names of super stars to casual fans.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK
