I'm sorry, but if Serena didn't start that the "she won rome and madrid" thing, they wouldn't be so much talk about this #1 position. She started this and now she is like "I don't want to talk about that".

I know Tracy is not a huge fan of Serena, but it's not like she said lots of BS about her. Tracy is no shit. She should be respected. Serena acts like I'm the Goat, you are old and pointless. Not surprising from her though. I wouldn't say gangsta but just uneducated.
Oh my goodness!!

What exactly is the history between the two, RVD?

What do you mean? Serena's my second-favorite player. Except when she plays Venus, I always root for her to win.

As far as Tracy, I actually like her commentary for the most part. I think it sucks that Serena heard what Tracy said at the AO and took it to heart because there were worse things said about her by Mary Carillo and the media as a whole if you ask me...but it is what it is. She just singled out Tracy.
Actually, it seemed like Serena just didn't want to get into a senseless back and forth discussion over the #1 ranking. In what way did Serena "single Tracy out"?

And no, I'm not going into any detail darrin, because I'm not playing that game today.

I should have been clearer. In her book she singled out Tracy, not that particular interview. I had no problem with the interview. But I do like Tracy as a commentator more than others.

You've read more than enough of my posts to know that I'm not playing.

You're smarter than that, RVD.

Serena was very disrespectful walking away before the interview was over.

That's what Tracy gets, she always has something stupid to say.

Really, don't even look at me...

You see the title under his username right?
Im just glad Venus lost today. If she'd actually won today, he'd be even more caustic.

Re: Serena Comments to Tracy about #1...

Why not send somebody to interview Serena who has a clue? About Serena I mean. Sending Tracy Austin to interview Serena is a joke. She MIGHT gve Nav straight answers. I'm sure she WOULD give Jon McEnroe straight answers. But Austin, Carillo, even Mary Jo, it's not happening. There's SO much water under the bridge, so much mindless criticism, some much misunderstanding, so much 'fuck you'.

How much useful information would you expect to get by sending Pete Sampras to inteview Venus? Or Anna Kournikova to inteview Elena Dementieva?

Whereas, if BJK is asking the question, she could open with, 'Is it more important for you to catch me in slam single titles, or in overall slam titles. Cause you ain't NEVER catchin' me in total pro titles.' And they'd giggle and ice would be broken and we'd learn something.

Why not send Hingis to interivew Vaidisova. I'm sure Nicole would open up to .... oops. Never mind.

Re: Serena Comments to Tracy about #1...

Quite funny. But she obviously wants the #1 ranking.
