OMG - Conchita has still got it!

after all the hoo-ha, 'she should retire' posts, i finally sat down and watched conchita on eurosport last night - and i was extremely impressed. she hasn't hit top form, but God, she is getting there. the courts are so slow, that it really suits her game, and she made casanova (a v. talented prospect) look like a total novice.

whether she can beat Jenn is irrelevant, after watching that match, i am certain that NO WAY should she even think about retiring. i am V. excited about her prospects in 2003, and with hardly any points to defend, expect her back in the top 20 by april - mark my words!!!

Wimbledon champion, Australian open runner up, French open runner up, US Open semi finalist, World no 2, Fed Cup darling, Italian Open queen, Berlin doyenne, Hilton Head heroine, Philadelphia Princess,...the beautiful, incomparable CONCHITA - A 1988 vintage - sweet, fruity and just gets better with age!

P.S - If Conchi ain't in the draw - go Monica!

She has been playing better as of late, but if I remember correctly, she's been on the wrong side of some long, tough matches recently.

If she can somehow fix that serve, it would help her a lot.

King Lindsay - i know what you mean about the serve, but at 30 years old - she ain't gonna be changing anything now!!

That's very true. Although, I guess she took that serve back to #5 in the world and the French finals just 2 years back, so maybe it isn't that bad.

Gooooooo my 2nd-favorite lesbian!!!!!

she could pose a big upset to a rusty JenCap.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Conchita; it was so funny to see someone play like Conchita again; all other players play soooooo diferently!

BTW Conchita must have lost a lot of weight; she looked almost slim; or maybe it just looked that way because of clothes that weren't horrible
