USO Wheelchair F: (1) Vergeer def. (2) Homan 6-0 6-0

378 match win streak

She is now 42-0 against her main rival Homan. The closest she came to a loss was when Homan had match point against her in the 2008 Olympic final.

Re: USO Wheelchair F: (1) Vergeer def. (2) Homan 6-0 6-0

Question:
I noticed yesterday that the wheelchair players completed a match on court 13.
Most of the matches were not played because of the rain.

So because these athletes are physically impaired, they can play in the rain?
Shouldn't it be the other way around?

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

42-0 is not a rivalry!
She is incredible though

"And thanks to all the people around the world for supporting me, and my fan club, I could feel your support no matter where I was in the world. Thank you for your devotion. Most importantly, thanks to my family, especially my mom. You've been very supportive, encouraging, inspiring... you were always there for me. It was a long way and we did it together. I love you mom. It's so emotional. It's so hard to say goodbye. I'm going to miss you so much"

In the words of Martina Hingis, "What rivalry? I win all the matches"

Our Dutch tennis-pride She's good, really good. It's actually kinda ironic that she has a 42-0 advantage over her main rival AND double bagles her now. that 378 win streak is just insane! The only tennis-player who rules at what she does best: Wiping her competition all over the place. Hands down Esther, hands down
