MMA The Mental Midgets Academy...this years graduates

Safina it seems has stepped up her fitness and her mental game, still not sure she will graduate this year.

Vera, has def turned a corner and is a few credits short of her certificate, it's still too soon to tell if she's rdy.


Amelie, a former student, has signed up for some post graduate studies....

"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

How could you forget Elena the perennial class topper but somehow never manages to graduate?

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: MMA The Mental Midgets Academy...this years graduates

Please. Elena is Headmistress of the MMA. The happiest days of her life were when she got to hand diplomas to her two favorite students, Nastya and Kuzzy. She was moved to tears.

Sadly, Nastya turned out to be a little tart and Kuzzy has reverted to her old ways.

Despite these errors in judgement, Headmistress Elena remains very popular with the students. (There's some talk of starting a fund to rename the gymnasium after her).

exactly why i didn't mention Elena, she seems quite content where she is. I don't think Kuzzy graduated either. Yes she won a slam, but the only thing bringing her game down is her mental approach to the game.

The gymnasium? If things continue the way they are, they're going to rename the entire academy. Elena Dementieva's Shriek & Spin School of Mental Midgetness

There will be guide books written on the Elena Dementieva philosophy in losing matches you shouldn't. I think Descartes will be coming back from the dead: "I think therefore I ain't [ever going to win a slam]"

Amelie is going for a second PhD. You would think she's learned all that she can, but she really enjoys the communal showers in the dorm rooms.

Re: MMA The Mental Midgets Academy...this years graduates

At least, Elena, Bepa, Dinara, Amelie, and Svetla are pursuing college degrees. I think Ana is enrolled also.

Btw, it's interesting that 4 top Russian players can combine college and professional tennis. Other than Amelie and Ana, who else on the tour is going to college?

Yes..."pursuing" degrees.

Venus has a degree, can't remember what it's in.

Rumor has it Elena pissed off a major donor when she won the Olympics. But a few more epic collapses like vs. Patty at the AO and Safina at the FO and our elite team of fundraisers may be able to pry the old purse strings open.

Will she still be on scholarship list if she finally cracks the top 3?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.
